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?

    Hello, a buddy let me borrow a bodybuilding book called,"Sliced", and it's great so far, although I think it was written in the early 90's.
    The book really went into detail about branch-chained aminos and free-form aminos, but I don't hear of anyone really taking these anymore. Are people mostly just using protein shakes nowadays to help build mass?

    Taking aminos seperately is a waste of time and money, in my opinion (combinations of aminos make protein, so why not just consume protein??).

    A protein shake alone won't help build mass, either. It's the total number of calories consumed that is important. And I personally feel that a top sirloin steak is 1000 times better than any protein supplement on the market.

    Actually, I still use them when I am precontest dieting.

    Sliced is a good book although you are correct it was written in late 80's so contest dieting has come a long way since then.
