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?

    Powerlifting Diet

    Hello Everyone,

    Well I am 180 lbs right now as we speak. I recently met someone and am now training WESTSIDE. I am going to do a meet in March (APF). Here are my questions:

    1) Should I compete in the 165 division or 181 division? I would say my bench right now is 315 without a shirt.

    2) My diet is as follows (40% protein, 35% carbs, 25% fat)
    2700 Calories
    270 Protein Grams
    236 Carbs
    75 Fat

    How does that look? I am right now 180 lbs, 15% Bodyfat....

    Thanks guys and I know I wrote the "High Protein Diet" post, I just want to make sure my diet is accurate. Thanks and take care

    Things to consider--

    What are your lifts now?

    How much do you want to improve?

    Can you drop 15 lbs and either maintain your strength or increase it?

    15 lbs in 5 to 8 weeks could be tough and draining.

    You should just keep gaining weight till you hit 185 or so then just dont drink water befor the weigh in. Doesn APF have a 24 hour weigh in or just the regualr 1-2hours?
    Is this your first meet?
    Best Meet @ Lifts@181:...............Best gym lifts

    Total....- 1,203...IPF Class II......All done raw, Touch'n go bench
