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?

    Does bulking make you sleepy?

    Bulking really makes me sleepy. I find myself laying down for a short power nap after every couple meals.

    i believe the thing that makes you sleepy is if you eat alot, then your body utilizes a majority of its energy to digest the food
    I don't have time. I make time.

    Carbs does it for me too, especially when my diet has a lot of potatoes. Since switching to oatmeal, I have no issues.

    Now that you mention it, I have been taking alot of naps lately. I thought it was just because I was trying to avoid studying, but I guess it could be all the food. I do eat alot of carbs.

    Glad I stumbled on this topic. Since I started bulking I have been really tired after school, and usually take a 1-2 hour nap. I was actually starting to worry a little bit.

    Busting my ass in the gym, combined with a full stomach is nap time for me.

    could be the carbs and plus when one eats a large meal the body releases tryptophan which makes you tired.

    I found when i was bulking having big huge meals made me feel tired and stuffed so i had smaller meals but often like 7 or 8 a day and i didnt feel as tired. I think with having big huge meals while on a bulk you get that after christmas dinner feeling all the time were you cant be bothered to move

    Power naps, getfit?



    I eat plenty of low GI carbs throughout the day. Helps me. Most high GI carbs kill me, as do large amounts of fat and protein. I can't imagine what something like a weight gainer drink would do to me.
