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?

    If you're not growing in size anymore, you've either reached your genetic maximum potential for growth, or you're not giving your body enough raw materials to continue growing.

    Since I'm assuming you're the second scenario, post your diet and there are lots of people who could help with that.

    You're not even meeting your goals and you're complaining about not gaining? Hit 4000 for a month and let us know what happens.

    Also, you need to change things up with regard to your set/rep protocols. What kind of parameters have you been using to date?

    frank, do you do any triples, doubles for high sets? I would throw in some days of high sets, 2-3 reps for sets, to change it up - maybe once a week. 12x2 (4-5RM), 10x3 (6RM), etc. - however, it depends upon your goals. If strength w/ no hypertrophy, 3x3, 3x5, 6x2, etc. is fine - if, however, you are seeking strength and hypertrophy, then yes, you need to increase # of sets as you decrease reps per set.

    Then throw in a high set, low rep day - 12x2, 14x1 (90% of 1RM), etc.
