The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    New member needs help- Training

    Ok guys.. I need some help so i decided to turn to this website. I am playing varsity football next year, and i decided its time to get bigger. Here are my stats: 15 years old, 180 lbs 6'3.

    I play defensive end/offensive tackle. My legs are incredibly weak for a 'lineman'. Im benching 185 pounds and squatting 180 pounds. Id like any tips on how to gain weight first of all, then how to work it into musscle. I have weights at home, and at school we have a 1st class weigh room.

    My goals for Febuary (its Novemember now) is to bench atleast 225lbs, and to squat atleast 225lbs. Id greatly appreciate a scheduel. I would like to work on everything basicly, focusing on my squat and bench. Also my biceps for the girls haha just kidding but i do want to focus on my biceps also. Any tips would be a great help.

    If that is the weight you have acheived without focussing on your diet, you will definitely be able to make big gains. I was 6'2'' 150, and I gained 30 pounds of muscle from eating and maintaining a strict diet. Try going to the diet and nutrition forum, and formulate a bulking diet.

    At your age, I doubt you'll have ay trouble exceeding your goals if you work hard.

    Keep focused on your conditioning for football, train hard inthe gym on basic lifts, and eat everything your parents put in front of you.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei
