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?

    Random pic, mid-cut

    So I decided to take a pic today. Weight is about 174 lbs. Slightly bloated because I've been having cheat meals for the last two days, and I've already had two meals and a couple liters of water today before I took this pic. I wonder if anyone has a clue what BF% I'm at, roughly? I'm guessing about 13%, maybe slightly more...

    Front relaxed

    I'd have taken more pics, but my camera batteries just died and I don't have any replacements yet. I'll take some more next weekend.

    We would need more pics, but i would guess higher than 13%. Keep up the good work.
    Diet is key, the calorie is king

    "Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
    Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination
    alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
    Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)

    Hard to tell, but I'm guessing more than 13% as well. More like 16-18%. But you did say you were bloated so I'm not 100% sure.

    5'10". I started out at 215 lbs and about 30% bodyfat, with not a whole lot of muscle, so I haven't been able to bulk yet.

    I think I'll just post better pics later when I'm actually ripped.

    You can post pics when you are ripped, but dont forget to still take them while you are progressin. Good motivaion and nice to look back and see how far you've come. I took pics like a few weeks ago and I can see little changes and it give me determination.
    Complication breeds desperation.
