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?

    Losing fat and waistline expanding

    Weird as hell... two weeks ago I had a 34 inch waist with a superiallic fold measurement of 12 mm. Now it's 34.5, is noticable in a shirt, and 10 mm. The entire ab area is hard as a rock.. a lot more firm than it's ever been. There's barely any fat to grab onto (compared to a few weeks ago). I haven't gained any weight but I have incorporated a lot of 1 rm based lifting principles, especially core hitting like DL, and thrown in some low rep intense ab work once a week and am theoretically running at a slight caloric surplus. My girlfriend has begun teasing that most guys get beer bellies not muscle bellies.

    Endo genetics barrel shape reasserting itself? I don't mind much as long as I'm not gaining much fat and putting weight on the bar but I admit I did like not looking like a fatass for once in my life.

    Maybe you're bloated.

    As an aside, by 'insane genetics' do people mean 100% meso?

    That was my first (second, third, fourth, and 10th) thought... I blow up like a blimp because of my digestive problems, after all. It's just been really consistant and not accompanied by the feeling I associate with being bloated.

    Steele: Yep. 100% meso genetics would be sweet. I'm textbook endo... short stubby fingers, wide stocky waist even at average body fat, stumpy legs, broad shoulders. If I bulk 5 pounds I expect 4 to be fat no matter how clean I eat.

    Considering you are my weight and body fat and likely 4 to 12 inches taller you aren't pure endo.
