The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 is a realistic weight goal?

    I have recently begun a 'serious' bulking phase for the first time. I often used to say I was bulking but i never realised how much food it takes. (That's right I was one of those "I eat so much but I cant gain Muscle!" people.

    Well I have finally learnt the error in my ways and I am eating properly (about 3500kcal a day)

    one question I have is what is a realistic weight target for me to attain?

    I know this is a subjective and quite an individual question but I don't want to be unrealistic about where i'm going.

    I am 5'8" and currently at 180lbs with between 10-15% body fat (depending on what method of measurement I use)

    I guess I am a person who cuts easier than I bulk but have recently seen progress with my new eating plan

    One final thing I play American Football and I play safety (although I should mention I play in the UK where the sport is not as serious as in the US) although I am very serious about my training and want to make the best gains possible.

    Basically I tend to use powerlifting methods as I have read these are more useful for a football player. I am currently using the Chad Waterbury 3 day a week method from basically only using compound lifts.

    Sorry about the long post but I thought I would give as much information as possible.

    Any thoughts on a realistic weight target would be much appreciated

    Many thanks

    don't worry necessarily about a certain weight. make sure you are bulking at a comfortable rate(fat to muscle) and when you think you need to cut because the fat is too much, then cut
