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?

    Just found this site today

    So I consider myself a fairly avid weightlifter. My bench maxed at 200 back in '01, but alas, after getting with my [ex] girlfriend of 3 years, I all but neglected strength training during the remaining years of college.

    I decided about a year and a half ago that I'd get back into shape. I spent most of that time just getting into the weight room and getting a handle on the weights. I have been lifting pretty consistently the past several months, and the past 3 weeks I've been hitting the gym 4x's a week, using a 1RM bench increasing program I found on musclemedia. I started at 165 bench; can probably bench 180 now.

    I read some posts on bulking/cutting, and realize that I'm trying to bulk and shed fat at the same time. I have to keep eating. But here are my stats right now (according to my digital bathroom scale):

    5'8", 166.8lbs, 17% (damn, I thought it was closer to 15...maybe scale is off)

    I don't have a set weight goal. I like building total body strength, core strength, and I vary it up with different compound exercises. I figure by the time I'm strong enough to lat pull 160x8, bench 225lbs, I'd be pretty set. I have pretty strong legs naturally; I don't work them much but am getting there.

    Anyhow, comment away. I have probably lost 10 lbs of fat over the past year (slowly but surely, by eating whole grain/protein/you know the drill). With a HIIT sprint workout I'm about to implement, I should be good to go.
