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?

    What is the most conveniant way to bulk?

    I've been on WBB1 for awhile.. and I'm just not seeing any results now. So Io take the supps, I do the routine religously. I lift with discipline. The only thing that I've never watched is my diet. Usuaully I'll skip breakfast, eat Mcdicks at lunch, workout, then eat a home cooked meal (maybe a steak and mashed potatoes). After that I'm about dont with eating.

    Anyways I want to eat healthy and I want to up my calories to bulk.

    What should I be eating... can I get some sampel diets?

    start the day with COOKED OATS / get protein from TUNA, LEAN BEEF, CHICKEN, cheese, MILK / carbs from PASTA, POTATO, BROWN RICE, MILK / fats from OILS, cheese, SEEDS, MILK / get your FRUITS an VEG (if you dont like, make sure to have vit/min tablets)

    make sure your drinking plenty of WATER, and plenty of MILK

    NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST an EAT LARGE MEALS

    nutrition is the most important thing there is when it comes to gaining weight - EAT MORE TO WEIGH MORE

    Supplements are just that: they supplement your diet; they don't replace it.

    Also, is there some rule where we have to capitalize the food we talk about now?

    Drink a gallon of milk a day and work those exercises hard. You'll grow.

    I did that, but I did gain muscle and some fat too. Run, when you drink a gallon of milk a day. That's my best advise on that.

    Lordy.... Nothing to add but wanted to reemphasize - EAT BREAKFAST! It would be the fastest way to add a thousand calories to your daily intake...

    I'm not exaggerating - almost EVERYTIME I ask a high school kid that complains to me about not making gains whether he eats breakfast or not, I get the same "Uhhh, no. I just can't wake up early enough.". Seriously, how hard is it to at least drink a shake???
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    Is this some kind of joke?

    The time span between your bedtime and lunch time is probably about 12-14 hours. So there is this 14 hour period in the day where you are getting 0 calories and 0 protein. This is your biggest problem.
