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?

    Complex problem. FNG

    Hi everyone please help the F##king new guy (me) out!

    I've been back at the gym for 4 months now, on the first week I got "reeled" in by an ex powerlifter who introduced me to powerlifting routines. I got hooked. Since that time I've incorporated my own routines based on his workout. I have since then gained huge strength and mass but also got a huge belly to show for it.

    Started weight - 180lbs
    Current weight - 208lbs.
    Previous Maxes
    Bench - 185 Squats 250 Dead lifts 225
    Current Maxes
    Bench - 300 Squats 395 Deadlifts 375

    I know these numbers might seem fishy, but I haven't worked out for two years because I was in a stupid relationship. But before that time I was really strong and just fell to that weak state. I do not take any supplements except for protein and creatine. Because I was living by myself I had a calorie absorption of roughly 4500-5000 calories a day. Now I'm living with my parents again and my meals have changed to 3-4 a day as oppose to 5 a day.

    Now that I stated some of my history, I just want to know what should I do now to slim down my beer belly and love handles. I don't necessarily want a 6 pack but having to lug a keg around isn't all that fun.

    My workouts right now is pretty much 1 set of warmups 50% of ORM, and 3 sets of 6 for the Big 3. For three months I haven't touched cardio, so maybe that can help you imagine the size of my keg.

    Should I do 30 minutes of cardio after workouts with low intensity or medium intensity or what? I know I'm going to end up losing alot of weight but at the same time I want to keep getting stronger. What should I do? I had an initial plan to bulk up to 225 than cut down to slim 205 but now I know that won't work. I don't know what to do!!! Please help.

    Do somekind of speed work and heavy work routine for strength, as for the keg - its all diet. I don't even touch cardio aside from work, and a walk every once in a while and I'm sitting on a fairly leanish 180 something.

    Clean up your diet. Maybe a little HIIT would help speed things up.
