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?

    2nd, 3rd, and 4th pics are of me at 229 lbs after 2nd small cycle of test e @ 500mg/week i gained 25 lbs in 5 weeks, arms measured in at 18 inches, no pump

    i ended cycle early due to me getting in motercycle accident shattered my collar bone and was out of the gym for 8 weeks, i am now back in the gym and currently 216 lbs and firming up quiet a bit. arms currently at 17 inches again

    just wanted to post this up for people to see how hard work and detication really can change your body. when i first started out i was convinced i couldnt gain weight cause my family was so skinny.. these pics prove me wrong

    Good gains, I will definately give you credit. What's wrong with 17 inch arms? dude, I have the same size ones, well about the same size. Either way, you improved a lot, and you look a hell of a lot better.

    nothing is wrong with 17" arms its just once youve had 18" you dont want to get smaller and i lost that whole inch that i worked so hard for ohh well alot of the loss was from water retention from the test

    also my calfs are the same size at my biceps so i feel i am pretty level, i dont want bigger calfs than biceps, i think that looks funny

    people had to know you did gear. 21 months from your 155 to 229. You don't even look like the same person (in a good way). Nice tattoo also. Sucks about the motorcycle accident. I am financing a cbr 600 f4i this summer, pretty pumped.

    Keep up the good work.

    Great work and an incredible change. Don't condone the gear or fake gang signs but impressive nonetheless. How tall are you? And how big did you get without gear?
    5'6
    160
    29.5 waist

    Bench:240-250, somewhere in that area.
    Squat:315
    Deadlift:385-405

    Goal: Lift more, Be Bigger and look Better.

    yea lmao about the whole handsigns its an inside joke with me and my friends. but yea naturally i kinda hit a plateau at about 192, i went from 155 to 192 in the first 7 months.

    then (im sure i could have gained more but i wanted the quick gains) i did my first cycle with little to no knowleadge and gained a bunch of fat from eating at wendys every day thinking that it didnt matter where i got the cals from just as long as i got them (ouch). but yea live and learn. i should have researched alot more than i did before starting cycle.. ohh well

    You look really good, though I do have a couple of comments/questions.

    You said you wish that you'd stayed around 206lbs. Why?

    No offense, but it looks like there's some facial structure difference between pre-gear and post-gear. Do you notice that too, or is it just a camera trick?

    Your upperbody looks sick man, even if you are carrying a little fat. You can still see abs. Nice work.

    mm, i wished i stayed at that weight because i was pretty well rounded IMO pretty cut and still pretty big. easy to maintain. and as far as face structure changing, maybe water weight? maybe the way i was moving my face in the pic? guarantee thats me i have more than 100 pics
