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?

    To cut or not to cut?

    I don't know whether to cut or not. I'd really like to, as my bodyfat is higher than it has been for years. (18-22%?) However, at 5'7 and 117pounds, I suppose I could try to build up some muscle first so when I cut I dont wind up with too low of bodyweight. sorry if this question annoys anyone, but the bf% is *really* bugging me on a daily basis, especially my newfound need to buy need clothes. What to do?

    a. drop cals below maintenance, cut the bf% then lean bulk
    b. add 250 cals over maintenance, train hard, eat clean
    c. keep cals at maintenance, train, eat clean, see what happens (gain muscle and lose bf% at same time? maybe? if im really lucky? )

    "Then on leg day do squats, lunges, stiff legged deadlifts, fluffernutters, and calf raises."--Belial, training a newbie

    PowermanDL on Russian culture: "Big furry hats come into play somewhere."

    "The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value. I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." --Thomas Paine
