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?

    Was var expensive? Heard it is kind of a mild drug all around. Mild sides, mild gains, etc. Don't know if that's true or not.


    How old were you when you started? 25?

    I was 23. I'll be 24 in August. I don't think it's as expensive as it used to be. It is pretty mild, I'm just using it as a little bit of a kick-start in the beginning while I cut. I think I'm going to keep my diet like it is now for the first 6 weeks or so and then start increasing cals for the last 6 weeks once the test and eq are fully hitting me.

    I did an EQ only one for a straight cut, and it worked well. I literally had like 1500 cals per day and held strength and muscle mass while cutting about 30 pounds of fat. I'm a fan of EQ.

    Haha sweet, that's what I want to hear.

    So happy with the new supplier I'm using btw. Absolutely no PIP. 2 cc's into my quad last night and I could max out on squats no problem today. Last cycle I was fucking crippled for the first few weeks and the PIP never went away completely during the full 12 weeks.

    Gonna take it easy and work my way up in weight. Chest felt really good today, none of the usual pain. Neutral/competition grip seems to feel the best; I think I've been hitting wide grip too much lately and some of the pain is from tendinitis, maybe.

    Time to start moving some heavy shit. 485 felt pretty good, despite barely being able to breath; pulled my lat pretty bad last week, taking in a deep breathe is still kind of painful.

    If I can stay healthy I think I'll get there pretty easy. I'd like to hit 425 before I'm done with the var/cutting. Then I'll slowly increase cals/carbs.

    Squats

    GMs

    EZ-Bar Curls
    75 x 10
    95 x 5
    115 x 5
    130 x 10

    500 felt real good. Gonna start throwing GMs in regularly. I hate doing them, but I know they're an extremely beneficial accessory movement.
