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?

    what's best for the hardgainer?

    the way i'm working out is heavy as i can handle, LOW reps (4-6)
    30-60 second rest in between sets, 3 sets.

    i learned this from my pops, he's HUGE! i wanna squat 600 lbs too! hahaha

    he also said HEAVY squats and deadlifts are what will bulk me up the quickest but i don't have the equipment for squats! what other excersises can i do besides squats that will do the same thing?

    i'm a hardgainer because my body adapts quickly , thus it is hard for me to gain muscle. i guess i just gotta get a rack for squatting and keep deadlifting!!! iv'e been gaining weight, but only about a pound a week. last season i was packing on 2 pounds a week without deadlifts or squats!

    If you have put on 2 lbs a week at times and now 1 lb a week, you my friend are no hardgainer.


    Do try and get a power rack for squatting though.
