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?

    Thanks dude.

    I dunno if I've written this in here or not, but I've really been thinking about training for a bb show in a couple years, hence why my workouts have been a little different (curling, etc.). Even though my strength can be a bitch at times, especially with all my back problems, I've still managed to pack on a lot of size this year without necessarily going balls to the walls with my diet. I know a couple of guys here at school that competed last year so I could get some help from them if I ever prep for a show in the next year or two. I've already hit my goal of 230, but I'd really like to see 240 before I start cutting now. If all goes well this summer I plan on shooting for 250 - 260 next winter. I'm only 5' 8" so at 250 with sub 20% bf I should definitely have enough mass to compete.

    I'm also pretty sure I'll end up juicing in another 3 or 4 years, so if I don't do something now I'll still definitely get up on stage sometime in the next 10 years.

    You're only 20?!?! You ****er! Why did I think you were my age?? Good plan on competing. I'd be interested to see how well you do. You clearly have tons of potential and you should use it towards bodybuilding or powerlifting. At some point, you should really get into some gear and compete!
