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?

    Predictions on how much I'll weigh before cutting...

    These last couple days I've decided to keep bulking until next April. Right now I weigh 220 and I'm 5-10.5. How much could I weigh next April? I'm guessing 245-250, which is kind of crazy to think of on a 5-10.5 frame. Then maybe I could cut down to a lean 225 and all this work will be worth it. Thoughts?

    492. Not a pound more.

    Don't ask for a lighter load. Ask for a stronger back.

    This is a stupid question because it depends entirely on you.

    Hard to say without your current body fat etc.

    You could work it out by comparing how much you used to weigh and your body fat. Then consider your current body weight and body fat. Then work out how much LBM and fat you have gained. Then you can work out the ratio of lean body mass to fat gained. If it's 1lb of muscle with 1lb fat then you'd need to add 60lbs weight to get 30lbs more muscle.
    Then try to factor in cutting - estimate your muscle loss along with fat loss etc

    I weigh 295lbs right now, and I dont look that crazy. Im sure that in 5 years I could be 10% at 250lbs and while I would look big it wouldnt be of ronnie coleman nature.



    Realistically, you could easily get to that weight, its just at which body fat % you want to be there at.

    I'm with Jorge on this one. The guy in Supersize Me gained like 25lbs in a month, whereas some people try to gain weight and say they can't gain a pound.

    It's all about the diet. Start eating now. BTW are you sure you won't be really fat at 250lbs?
