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?

    Its the perfect hardgainers diet. I think the reason that this is posted here in powerlifting section is simply because he has no intentions of cutting. Its purely from a get big, get strong standpoint.

    If you are trying to stay lean or have a need to do so specifically then this might not be the easiest bulk to recover from.

    Good points... However, hardgainers can change overnight... It seems to be around age 30 that metabolism that is ridiculously fast comes to a halt at a certain age and once super lean people become HUGE! I've seen it... Just my thoughts on it.

    There's really nothing special about any diet. The basic rules are always the same. This is just the diet I've followed to help gain weight. I do not plan on ever cutting. (Although I am dropping some weight for a meet, not the same!)

    If this were a bodybuilding diet, I would have put it in the diet section. This is geared specifically toward powerlifters and strength athletes that are having a hard time packing on the pounds.

    Drew, you forgot the Fast Food group. What about Taco Bell, Qdoba, Wendy's, MD and the likes?

    The only fast food I really eat are burgers from McD and BK and the occaisional chicken sandwich from wendy's. I don't advocate eating fries or drinking soda for any reason other than for pleasure.
