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?

    Are you planning on competing?

    Given how much you are going to grow, I doubt it's worth it to buy one.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Kudos to you for entering the gym at an early age and showing great interest. Saying that, i think you should wait a few years and gain some raw lifting strength and build a good base before using any equipment.

    Jarod,

    Glad to have you here and it's great you're already competing, but I agree that you should wait before you start spending all kinds of money on equipment. You don't even bench bdwt yet! IMHO, at your present bdwt, you should be squatting at least 280, benching 170, and DLing 280 before you bother w. equipment.

    Its really good that your showing interest at such an age, I regret not lifting when I was that young. You should wait a couple years like everyone else has said, so that you can get a good base to build off.
