The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    if you're not gaining, you're not taking in enough cals. it really doesn't get any simpler than that, yet we hear it all the time. and in your case you're not taking in enough protein either. aim for 1.5g per lb of bodyweight.

    your split isn't that great either. chest and back on the same day, a lot of sets for arms, and kickbacks?! start doing one of the wbb routines and bump up the cals. report back in 3 months and you should have some gains to show.

    You weigh 154 and you're only getting 100g of protein a day??

    I would say if you're not gaining weight you need to be getting AT LEAST 154g a day...upwards of 210g, 75g of healthy fats, and then however many carbs fit your total need...

    are you currently tracking on www.fitday.com ?

    First off, it doesn't look like you have a "gut." And your nipples are nothing to worry about.

    You should get some more protein. *At least* your bodyweight in grams of protein a day. And if you arn't gaining weight, then you need to up the calories.

    I would also suggest a better split. You don't really need to do 12 sets of biceps in one day. You almost do as much isolated bicep work as overall leg work each week.

    Check out the BGB routine maybe.

    tuna, protein powder, chicken breast, tuna, fish, tuna. Tuna is also a good way. Get the point? 1 ounce = 6 grams/protein

    It hurts to read your posts.

    Thanks for actually posting your routine and giving us an idea of your diet. Very non-newb of you.

    I agree, your routine stinks. Second, you just started, so you have to be patient. Real visual improvements take months to occur and depend as much on your diet as your training. The key is consistency in both aspects.

    You'll see those size gains man. You just need the extra cals and protein like everybody said. Keep at it.

    Try peanut butter for a high cal food. If you like peanut butter, grab a spoon and a jar and go at it. One tablespoon = about 100 cals.

    you dont HAVE to have a protein drink, but it does help. If you could just eat chicken breast and tuna for lunch and dinner, and other types of fish or even red meat in your case, then you would be just fine. Just watch what you eat, but in your case, don't worry about it. Just watch yourself eat it, and eat ALOT of it.

    Why is his split so poor? If he moves biceps to the same day as legs, you basically have Built's BGB.

    You can't cook? Well, can you use a blender?

    Grab 375 ml of whole milk, 1/2 or full cup of oatmeal, a few spoonfuls of natural peanut butter, a tb of honey, some olive oil, a banana (optional) and some whey protein powder (optional) and throw it all into the blender. All it takes is 2-3 minutes to make, and it'll give you around 1000 calories. If you can stomach a couple of these a day you'll be good to go, as far as weight gain is concerned.

    Almonds and oatmeal are good, shots of olive oil will help to.

    Is there something wrong with puffy nipples? Chicks dig puffy nipples, ask any one of them.

    Be careful on the meat and fish intake. Too much fish=too much mercury intake. Bad for body.

    Too much meat = not sure but you could increase your cholesterol

    Although, if you're young, I guess you wouldn't have to worry about that so much.

    Definitely get some Whey protein.
