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?

    Arms look lean as hell actually. Chest is coming out alot more now. Everything is looking better, ofcourse the midsection is still not quite small but that is where most males lose fat last.

    Sorry, Brian! I got called away to do something and when I returned you'd already signed off.

    On your question- I notice it slightly in the most muscular pose. It may just be a placebo since you mentioned it, but it does look a little more "prevalent", is the word that comes to mind.

    Yep, I think you might be right. Whether or not it's increased thickness, or decreased fat I can't be sure, but I would hazard a guess at the latter, given the rate at which you're losing weight.

    I really noticed that your sides have shrunken from photo to photo though, well done. Makes me feel like I need to step up my game

    thanks man...you are doing damn well yourself too bro...i still got a ton to lose in the midsection...i may try to go over a week without the refeed and see if i can knock this thing out a little quicker. I am not sure if i can go over a week on this bastard of a diet though without a refeed though lol

    Cheers Bri!

    Yeah, I too have thought about continuing on without the refeed, but I guess it would make each successive week more hellish during the workouts, and to be honest it makes the weekend much easier to survive with family and kids not having to worry about sticking to a low card diet.

    But that's me. If you can do then it might be worth a try, but with that said you are doing a fantastic job, it just takes time
