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?

    19, And tired of being skinny.

    Currently I haven't been working out very much, I'm recovering from a knee blow out playing basketball. Also from a dislocated shoulder.

    I at first started lightly lifting to get my knee and shoulder stronger. And now that they are, I want to get into more serious work out.

    Here is two pictures, both in a relaxed position:


    Before knee/shoulder:


    After:


    Any comments, or suggestions are welcome!

    Browse around the website man. All the information you need is here.

    The main thing you need to do though is eat more.

    To the op, hit the weights and start eating. Eat until you think you cannot eat anymore, then force yourself to eat.

    Just be carefull on your bench as I had a friend that had a concaved chest so he used a bit of padding on his benches and it helped him extremely.

    To the OP: You gotta eat, you gotta sleep and you gotta lift. You need some weight! Eat man, eat! When it hurts so much from eating, eat some more, your stomach will learn to stretch out!

    Goodluck, like it's already been said more then enough information is available on the site, check out WBB1, eat alot, drink alot of water, get enough sleep, take a multi vitamen, that should do ya.. - and who gives a **** if someone told him to pull his pants up maybe he should, that's dangerously low and asking for an accidental pub peak.

    OP: Start eating more food, but make sure that what you eat is healthy. Don't inhale a large amount of snickers' or other candy bar. Make sure you are sleeping well and lifting on schedule. Good luck.

    People who bitch: Let's try and keep this forum a place that's friendly and informative. I'm not a moderator, but everyone is blowing one comment out of proportion. If you don't like it, ignore it.

    Just wanted to add don't eat till you wanna throw up I don't know why people always say this but it's stupid. Just eat every 2 hours as much as you can without feeling like your gonna throw up, you'll start gaining weight fast. All this eat until you feel sick and then keep going is just dumb don't do it.

    For the love of humor, smile!
    There are studies that have suggested that those who have better attitudes about their devlopment tend to end up doing better than those who don't, even when they follow the same regmin.

    Of course: bench pressing, squats, deadlifts, eating good and hearty meals many times a day, getting at least 9 hours of good sleep, and a good protein suppliment; help too .

    Best of luck!

    How many calories is that? Should you just buy all that stuff in bulk?

    By the way, I have a question. If you drink 3-4 shakes a day with meals and you know for sure how many calories those shakes are...why do you need to track on FitDay? Why can't you use your shakes to get to a certain calorie level and just estimate on everything else you eating? Say you drink 4-1,000 calorie shakes a day plus eat. You'll definitely know that you're getting 4,000 calories that day. Anything else that day is icing on the cake. If you're super skinny...does it matter if you eat a little too many calories that day?

    It probably does not matter, but for many people, "eat a lot!" is just too vague. If you're aiming at getting 4000-4500 calories, sure, go for it, just guestimate. Otherwise, you might want to track if you want to be more accurate.

    Dude, it's not that difficult to figure out.

    700ml of milk=~450 calories
    2 scoops whey protein=~220 calories
    100g of oats=~350 calories
    4 tablespoons peanut butter=~400 calories


    And Ta-DA...


    Total=~1420 calories
