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?

    Skinny kid without a shirt

    Alright, my first time posting pictures. Please give any constructive criticism, I'd like to take better pics next time, I was just kinda winging it with these ones.

    Here's a brief re-introduction. In high school I weighed less than 100 lbs, yep... you read that right.... less than one hundred pounds. Two years ago I weighed just over a hundred, currently I'm somewhere between 143-146 at 5' 7". The immediate goal is 160 then likely going higher. I'm eating like crazy right now, try and take in a minimum of 4000 calories a day, most of which I drink. My routine is basically a day for squatting, a day for deadlifting and a day for bench. I throw in a few corresponding exercises on those days, but I primarily just do those lifts.

    I didn't lift at all on the day these pics were taken... actually its after a day of heavy drinking (hehe finished my last final exam) I'll take a much better one of my chest later on.

    Wow, you're 22? You look a good bit younger.

    Your program is probably the best thing for you at your size. Good job on getting to where you are and good luck with your goals!

    haha, i loved your subject title
    i was the same, i weighed like 96lbs end of 9th grade, but i gained to 115lbs in 10th grade doing nothing, just eating and growing, then i started lifting for a short period (april-july last year) and was 135lbs, gained 9lbs doing nothing from august-jan, then from january til now i've gained 17lbs (161lbs). if you just eat a lot and lift hard i'm sure you'll get the gains you want, that's all i had to do, and soon enough you'll be getting comments about how big you've gotten. yesterday, i was walking down the hall and 1 kid that was at the gym when i was there yesterday was like "speak of the devil, i was just telling him how strong you are." it made me feel so good lol

    haha, to galileo's comment, in 9th grade when i was 15 i could pass for 10, because i was so skinny/scrawny, after gaining 65lbs, i finally look my age - for the most part. i could still pass for 14-15 if i wanted (too bad i can't get those child discounts anymore :[)

    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial
