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?

    RST's pretty average progress!!!

    Ok, so I finally got some decent pictures taken. Apparently the best lighting in my house is in the bathroom. Unfortunately I couldn't find some good lighting to take a picture of my legs in, so it's pretty shadowy.

    My stats:
    Stats: 5'8", 154 lbs (Empty)
    Bench: 170
    Squat: 270
    Deadlift: 300
    Total: 740

    and here's my story:

    I started training for serious last january at about 135 lbs. I got up to about 145 by May, but I never relaised the importance of diet. I worked at a day camp all summer and I couldn't get enough calories in to maintain and I was to tired to hit the gym regularly. So when september came around, I weighed in at about 138 lbs and started again, but with a better diet. Since september, I've gained 16 lbs and this is what I look like now. My main goal is to get strong, but I'm also trying to get bigger. I don't know if I'm going to cut for the summer (I wouldn't mind being shredded ) or continue to bulk. I depends on how much weight I gain by then. I don't think I'll cut if I'm under 160.

    I have an ok before pic which I'll upload later when I can find it.
