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?

    What should I be consuming?

    I am a 19 year old male, weigh 160 pounds height about 5'7'' and I am a hard gainer. I'm just starting to train for the New Year. I would like to gain some lean muscle mass. Trying to aim for a Ryan Reynolds body. So I'm not sure where to start with the proteins and what to be taking in for my body. What protein shake would be best for what I am aiming for, brand and what not? Also anything else I should be taking in? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Excellent base you got to start with m8 if its the above look your going for.

    Regarding what you should be eating, check out this thread http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=46565 , "what a bodybuilder eats" you can find it as a sticky at the top of this section of the forums. You'd wanna be eating between 1-1.5gram of protein per pound of body mass to build muscle, and as little "Saturated fats" as possible. But looking at your size and the goal you have i'd say try out the WBB#1 routine for lifting which is a basic 3 day split
    http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=25 . Or if your already into lifting, have a look around the site using the 'Search' function at the top to see if anyone else has a routine which would suit you better.

    The above and some intense cardio should see you set imo. Personally i'd say go for HIT as cardio, as if your keep to regularly working out the only part i see which is smallish compared to your goals is you chest and perhaps Obliques....cant really tell though till your cut up a bit.

    Anyways hope this helps a little m8, good luck with yor goals and i'm sure others will pitch in thier oppinions once they've sobred up lol

    Concerning your protein intake,a simple guide that works wonders is to eat around 2.6x your body mass in grams of protein each day. I'm using metric measurements here, I have nfi about imperial though.

    I take it by "2.6x your body mass" you mean in Kg's ???? Personally everything i've read or heard about has indicated (in pounds) 1-1.5g per pound....I suppose taking it at 1g x 2.2(pounds per Kg) would bring you out closer to 2.6 from Kg ?????

    Edit: Ah just noticed the "I have nfi about imperial though" doH
