The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    You look great so why mess with a good thing?

    I was telling my 107 lbs gf the benefits of weight training for women and you came up as the great example!

    Well, trust me, as I work my way through this cut, dropping an extra 13 lbs of fat was NOT fun for the maybe 4 lbs of LBM I gained over a five month bulk. I probably won't even keep most of it.

    Good news though, for women who FEAR bulking up. That's why I shared the information.

    As usual, fantastic work MariAnne.

    Your bluntly honest personal anecdotes are always instructive and worthwhile and I've shown many of my female friends your articles (and pictures!) and you've become a source of inspiration to more than a few of my friends.

    I always enjoy articles that stomp the myth of "women and heavy weights are bad." Way to go!

    Great article, Built. A must read for anyone that ever thinks of giving any kind of advice about weight lifting - either as a pro or as friend.

    Thanks built. I really enjoyed the article. I'm about to apply to college and I plan to major in some field of kinesiology. I was just wondering what colleges you would reccomend. Thanks.

    aming - I'm in Vancouver, and I studied Mathematics. I'm not sure I can help you much with your choice of schools. I'm glad you found my article helpful though!

    aming37 I'm going to Emily Carr in Vancouver at the moment... But, I plan on finishing this semester then picking up some extra credits so that I can branch off into kinesiology as well.. I'm thinking UBC or Simon Fraser, but it really depends where abouts you're located!

    Built, as the numbers from your last bulk were 'depressing', what do you plan to do differently for your next bulk?

    Hmmmm... it wasn't that they were so much depressing as illuminating: I now know I have very little natural potential left.

    I'll not bulk over 135 again. I may only gain a few more pounds of muscle in my lifetime without AAS, and I'm not ready to take that step just yet - or ever - not in my near future at any rate. If I can gradually recompose a little over the next few years with little bulks up to 135, little cuts down to 127-128, I think that will be the best for my body and my comfort level. Also fewer wardrobe changes!

    Redspiky - cool! Let me know what she thinks about it.

    She really liked it. Honest and to the point. She especially liked the bit about fat joggers and skinny weightlifters.
