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?

    carb cycling is going good now that I'm adjusting to it...my lifts have gone down a little bit, but not enough to where I'm worried

    increasing protein and fats on days I don't lifts keeps me feeling full (along with salad and broccoli)

    if you're interested in doing it there are a lot of people who could help you more than I could or just use the search.

    Paying the cost to be boss, looking leaner and all - nice way to change things up to accommodate the diet.

    Solid workout bro. The incline press after the shoulder press was probably alot harder since your delts were pre-exhausted

    Super reps especially with the assistance moves, nice 5 x 5 work on the flat bench press and shoulder press.
