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?

    Realistic goals...

    I was just wondering what a good goal would be by the end of this year (2005 ). I just turned 14, im 5'10, and I weigh 160 lbs. My numbers are:
    Bench 130
    Squat 210
    Dead - I dont deadlift, but I plan on starting soon.
    Im currently on creatine and whey, of course Im eating healthy, intaking around 200 grams of protein a day. Any idea of a good goal?

    Oh, and if youre wondering what I look like (or if it helps)

    At 14 I am willing to bet it is.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    yeah, and i am cool with it. My body takes it well, and creatine doesnt cause any long time damage that im aware of. Anways, yeah im eating as much as I can before I get full. Should I force myself to eat when I'm full?

    ..uhhh, as far as i know, 14 year olds shouldnt take creatine.also, it can cause long term damage to yer kidneys, if you take it for a loooooong time. still, 14 is pretty young to be taking supplements in which the long term affects are not known


    Edit: Please do not make uneducated statements.

    Ya i suggest taking that creatine out of yoru diet im 15 i dont take anything and i dont feel i need it. I just eat like crazy and stuff myself . If you need the whey protein to reach what amount you need i say take it but the supplements themselves what make you huge.

    read it and THEN post please

    The frown is because although I know I bench more than the average 14 year old, I feel as if I should be benching more because of my weight, then again I am 5'10 so... Also, seeing all you guys benching 200 and what not makes me feel weak, even though I realize that you guys are older and more experienced.
    Anyways, I feel like 150 lbs is a relatively good goal, that is, if I keep eating like I am

    Uno, goals at your age (especially BW goals) are very hard to guess, you could have a growth spurt and destroy it, without doing much.

    I would make you goals more short term, i.e increase your bench by 2-3 reps a week or 5lbs whichever comes first. Eat as much as you can in a day (healthy), you are at the stage in your life, where you body wants to grow, so feed it and you will see results fast.

    Drop the creatine, or atleast cycle it when you have plautued not as a regular thing.
    Stats:
    Height: 6'
    Weight: 198lbs
    Current Cycle: Cut

    Goals|Current
    ATF Squat: 350lbs|315X2
    DB Bench: 120|105X4
    DL: 450|345x8

    Do some research and then make your own decision. I'm sure you will decide there is nothing wrong with creatine supplementation at your age.

    200 lbs is a good goal to have.

    Your goals shouldnt be determined by anyone else other than yourself, if you think you can get 150 then shoot for it...if you think you can get more, then work your @ss off for it...

    my first goal was to be able to bench a 45 on each side then it was to bench 2 45's on each side, now its to bench 3 45's on each side. the only way you can accomplish anything is to believe in yourself. there are 14 year olds pushin up way more than what guys double their age do.

    to be honest that goal is quite low only 20lbs from now till the end of this year... if you committed and of course doing it right you should be able to do more if not a lot more than that.. everyones here has given good advice just keep eating and lifting regularly and you will meet your goals faster than you think.. i mean youve already got most "average" 14year olds beat so that may mean you have good genetics to start with and an automatic advantage...

    good luck
