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?

    I haven't been here in a WHILE. I'm posting because, though my time has been limited in the gym (I'm working 12 hours/day studying for this stupid exam), I've been happy with my results lately.

    I don't know if my metabolism is slowing down or what since I'm getting older but I'm at my heaviest I've ever been (183.5) and I have no problem maintaining it just eating on an unrestricted diet without looking to bulk.

    Today I benched 220x3 which is the most I've done ever. Last week I DL'd 400x3 and was happy about that.
