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?

    skinny 19 y.o.

    I've been lifting for about a year and a half. I'm 6 feet tall and weigh between 145 and 150. I used to work out 5 days a week, but recently cut it back to 3 days due to lack of time with school and work, but i like it better anyway. I can't bulk up for anything and yes, I eat all the time.

    The pics arent to bad, but you definately need more mass. Also the whole I cant bulk up thing is such complete bs, I'm 6'4 and have a fast metablism and I can bulk just fine.

    Eat more. That's the only way to bulk up.

    Since your an Ectomorph I would definantly reccomend eating as much as you can, Im not saying Micky dees 24/7 but I really wouldent worry about the quality so much as long as its full of protien and CALORIES. I know everyone has said this but even eating more isnt eating enough, eat until your gonna puke man just stuff your goddamn face every chance you get. And do not neglect your legs, I dont know your routine but you will never get big without lots of dl's and squats.

    So what you're saying -in the same sentence mind you- is that you wouldn't recommend a bulk, just bulk?

    I'm fairly certain what this guy meant was that he shouldn't go on an all out bulk but should continue a slow bulk. Or whatever he's done to get to this point.

    I do not agree however, I say EAT MAN EAT!!!

    You look fairly lean. Start the bulk! I've put on 10 pounds and only went up around 1% bf already, and it looks like you are naturally lean as well. Just eat eat eat and if you think your getting too fat, just cut back a bit. Good luck man.

    I don't think there is such a thing as a clean bulk for a guy this thin. If you eat enough you will gain.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    Yeah, but I can't drink regular milk because I'm lactose intollerant. I get lactaid now, but next time im at the store I'm gonna look for those lactose enzyme pills. I figure once im done with school, I graduate january 12th, I'll have more time to eat. Right now I usually get up at 6, leave for school at 7, have class from 8-9, go straight to my internship from 10-4, then work from 5-9. When I'm done with school I'm gonna get back on creatine, glutamine, and protein. My goal is to get up to about 170lbs.
