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?

    I don't know man...honestly whats the point of bulking so hard when your not even lifting? Sure you may gain weight but without the resistance training...its more likely to be stored as fat. This is a suggestion, and I know you won't use it, but I would suggest maintaince calorie intake while your not lifting.

    This all sounds like a plan to me. Now, time for some pre-kicking my clique's ass measurements:
    They may be as big or bigger than you but you are still lifting more by a fairly large margin. What are you going for more, size or strength?

    I know about the bulking thing and I can't imagine trying to keep at 6k calories for any amount of time. I wouldn't worry about it if you can't stay at that, as long as you are gaining might as well make sure it's quality mass, not just mass for mass's sake.

    Size.

    Today I tried an upper session. I tried dips fresh and hit 16 dips @ BW (188lbs) Headaches came during the first set, and stayed for the whole workout. These headaches suck. I'm even getting them when playing with big willy! I'm gonna take a week off from all resistance training, and as well see the doctor about this. I hate to take the time off, and I was contemplating doing it 3 weeks ago but didn't want to. Now I have no choice really.

    Don't sweat it mitch. Once you get this headache BS taken care of you'll be hitting it hard once again.
    I'd also like to once again emphasize that you are now beating me on deads. You stupid assface.

    Holy crap, I think I figured it out. It must be that freakin' acne medication I'm taking. The headaches started when I started taking it. The one day I forgot to take it is the only session I didn't get headaches. I'm almost certain this is what is causing it.

    Time to do some experimenting

    A 16-year-old girl developed headaches and double vision following treatment for acne with vitamin A and minocycline. These side effects disappeared once the compounds were discontinued.16 More research is needed to determine whether the symptoms could have been caused by an interaction between vitamin A and the drug. -- http://www.raleys.com/cfapps/healthn...tentID=1157007
    Occupational Hazards: Patients treated with minocycline may suffer from headaches, light-headedness, dizziness or vertigo. Decreased hearing has been rarely reported in patients on minocycline. Administration in excess of the recommended dosage can increase the frequency and severity of these CNS symptoms. Patients should be cautioned about driving vehicles or using hazardous machinery while on drug therapy. These symptoms may disappear during therapy and usually disappear rapidly when the drug is discontinued. -- http://www.rxmed.com/b.main/b2.pharm...)/MINOCIN.html
    He produced a study about it (suddenly he knew everything), and started me on 100 mg of minocycline twice a day along with Relafen twice a day. At first I got terrible headaches from the Minocin, and it took awhile for the Relafen to work, but I gradually started getting better. -- http://www.rheumatic.org/gloria.html

    SEE! I knew something wasn't right with these headaches. Here's a very professionally done study on acute headaches, and it lists minocin as one possible pharmaceutical cause. http://www.aafp.org/afp/20010215/685.html .

    So now I am contemplating whether to get off of the minocin or not. All the studies and evidence show that the headaches only go away once use of the product is discontinued. I've actually been seeing a big improvement in my acne with this product, so this is a DAMN shame. I'll speak to my doctor about alternatives.

    ryu:
    I'd rather cut all the bull**** and go right to accutane already. I thought this med was working, but through pictures there's actually no difference. I know none of this stuff will work for me; it didn't work for my bro or sis either.

    Thanks guys.

    I posted a last ditch "simple" solution to bacne in the general health thread a while back, I don't know if it was the thread you started or someone else, but did you try it? It had to do with discontinuing your shampoo/conditioner and soap for cetyphyll or spectro gel. Bacne is sometimes irritated and made worse by the things you put on your skin and hair. It has helped some of my friends and patients at my work.
