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?

    everyone says eat as much as you can, but if that isn't enough, try liquid calories such as protein shakes and MRP shakes. since liquid calories feel like less you will be able to gain more

    arms look like a strong point.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Looking good, you look like me and essentially same stats (i'm 24, 5'10", 151). Your arms look bigger that mine though, and that back pic makes you look bigger than 152. For traps, I do db shrugs at least twice a week and deadlifts at least once a week, shrugs especially hit your traps, at least it works for me.

    How long you been lifting, how long ago was that before pic? Keep it up!

    Thanks for the comments everyone I'm eating up and taking whey protien so hopefully it'll help me pack on some mass.

    rafe- I've worked out in highschool but I had no idea what I was doing and only did situps, curls and bench. I hadn't really done much in the last few years just work out for a bit when I got out of shape but I've been at the gym for like 5 weeks now since the before pic.

    Nice work. You look like you've been training longer than a month.

    For traps, in addition to what's been mentioned, I also find military and any other type of overhead press, particularly behind the head with a barbell (always get the names mixed up sorry) work wonders.
