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?

    Hmm i feel like a quitter when i finish lifting lol!

    I know its weird i have been on this diet/excersise kick for 3-4 monthes now and its like im addicted to doing stuff

    I did my day 5 wbb workout today and also ended it with some of those crazy thrust squats that about kill you. And im all sore feel liek i've done something then about 2 hours later i want to do more stuff......

    I am just not happy with the way i look, Ive lost about 80 pounds rather fast (4 monthes) and need to gain muscle or lose more weight im not sure which....

    Step back for a second and focus on one thing.

    You lose 80 pounds in four months.

    Repeat it a few times while looking in the mirror until it sinks in how awesome that is.

    Overtraining yourself won't help you in the long run so just relax. Go for a walk if you still have energy to burn.

    80 pounds in 4 months, congratz what did you start at?
    I think you best option is to do as shock said and step back, look at what you have accomplished and decided what you want to set as your next goal.
    You can also post some pics or stats ect and some of us can give you advice on what we would do in your situation.

    no but its prolly still rather high as i can only bench 140 pounds and curl 65 pounds so im not anywhere as strong as i thought i was.. rather sad really.

    (never lifted weights before so i was surprised at how little i could do)

    Well you have to start somewhere, I would probably keep cutting.

    In my opinion, knowing when to say enough is enough is half the battle. It's so hard not to throw in another set of rows or lunges or whatever, even when you know you will probably be overtraining. You need to give every set everything you've got so you don't leave without being tired.

    keep lifting somthing like 3 times a week and what you'll notice once u stop losing weight is that you wont really change rapidly anymore but your muscles will slowly fill in where your arms,stomich,legs are and over time you will become solid and without relizing it ur chest will grow out and your lats will grow but all over time man just get some protien in you eat right.....trust me i know im 6'4 215 and i lost 60 pnds (training for 3-4 yrs.) soon to be a p.t. after college. i used to be an out of shape goofy lookin fella.now im doing handstands and elbow levers. just work for what u want.

    I would like to get to 185 or 190 i hope lifting weights wont slow down my weight loss.....?

    I guess if i only eat 1800 calories a day, and run 3miles a day, 4 days a week i have no choice but to lose weight even if im lifting weights right.....

    You do know that over-training will make your muscles smaller right?
