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?

    Here's the interesting part.

    In the last 6 weeks my deadlift went from 180 to 290 so my back is going GREAT

    Squat have treated me nicely too as my max went from 180 to 270

    But I hate my chest. I switched over to dumbbells and made some decent progress: went from 50 x 10 to 65 x 8 in 4-5 weeks. Now that I'm switching back to barbell I'm noticing neglible strength gains. I would say 10 lbs max?
    It's frustrating.

    Oh and thank you on the complimentary and encouraging words.

    Just whey protein by body tech.

    I just don't feel comfortable taking anything more then that and if my mom found out I am taking that kinda stuff she's beat me back down to 140 lbs.

    I guess 5500-6000 calories a day is working nicely but I'm starting to feel fat.

    DO NOT be scared of fat, we ectomorphs can burn that very quickly when cutting. It will help you in the end so keep that bulk up!

    Im now one week off from my cut! I literally cant wait! I always had a good set of abs and this bulk is killing me for that reason because this is the first time ive actually bulked and waved bye bye to those precious abs. If you have a different reason why you dont like the fat your adding on...please, share.

    I believe the correct question would have been, how's your diet?
    "it's you against you, it's the paradox that drives us all"

    6'1", 206, 11.5%
    Bench: 285
    Squat: 275
    DeadLift: 335
    -------------
    Total: 895 and moving up.

    110lb increase on your deadlift and 90lb increase on squats??? Unusual amount of increase in weight within 6 weeks. Was your form inproper before or something? Either way, great increase man! Keep up the great work!

    5 weeks ago was the first time I did deadlift in my life (so noobie gains) and I'm thinking I have a naturally strong back.

    As for squat, before 5 or 6 weeks ago I wasn't doing anything close to full ROM so I also saw results quick. I used to do kickboxing so legs were always there. Improving form helped about 20 lbs too.

    Chest is still a pain. Just can't get it up.

    Thank you for the kind words

    Im 170 lb.'s and 5'9... I was told a cut would not be good at this point in time.. I should bulk more and then cut back to around 170.

    Last time I checked, 13% body fat.

    4 month goal is to maintain for now. Maintain through the summer, and then start my bulk in Spetember.
