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?

    How fast will my BF increase in ONE week...

    OK, I'm getting weighed in at work tomorrow, and if I show anything more than a reasonable gain in BF, I lose 500 bucks.

    My question is how fast will I lose it.

    Last 12 weeks I have Lifted/Ran/Swam, etc. Also, my diet was very very strict. I gained a good amount of muscle and shedded fat away. 15% BF to 9.2% BF.

    This week my diet was still strict, however, my excersize has gone down this week. I didnt play frisbee this week, ran twice rather than 4 times, and lifted just once.

    In short:
    12 weeks ago: 15% BF
    hardcore working out/diet
    Last Thursday: 9.2% BF
    Since then, much less excersize, but hard diet (...except saturday :P).

    Can you guys give me a decent prediction of what my body fat will be at this week?

    If I am over 12% I lose.

    Well, forget your body fat... what's your weight?

    If you were 200 then 1% bf is equal to 2 lb. So in order to have gained 3% body fat in less than a week you would have needed to gain 6 pounds of pure fat.

    If you were 100 lb then it 'only' would have taken 3 pounds of fat.

    Intriguing. How is the measurement being done? And, why would you lose $500--is it some sort of bet?
