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?

    Teach me to cut

    Yeah I know there's stickies and information all over the place here. I'm doing some stuff that makes some of the advice a little tough, though.

    First, I'm doing a 2 week cut, 3-4 week bulk cycle. I'm repeating this all year. I do a great job of adding on lean muscle with very minimal fat gain during my bulks, and when I cut I want to lose as much fat as possible without losing just about any muscle.

    Second, I'm very active when I both bulk and cut (I workout 7-9x a week). I think this helps me stay lean because my metabolism is always pretty good, but I can't just "up my cardio" when I cut or I'll really overtrain. Even cutting back calories to a great degree may lead to overtraining in my case.

    My body weight is 230 right now. I'm on creatine. I'm going to start my third attempt at a cut next Monday. What should I do differently from bulking? Here's my bulking diet if that helps:
    Breakfast: 3 scoops oatmeal, 1 scoop whey, 1 serving natty peanut butter
    Lunch 1: Protein Bar
    Lunch 2: 2 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches with wheat bread
    Lunch 3: Egg & Cheese Omelet
    (Sometimes I replace 1-2 of these lunches with a Subway Sub and/or Tortelini)
    Pre-Workout: Small Bowl of Complete Cereal, 1 scoop whey
    Post-Workout: 1 scoop whey, big glass V8 Fusion or Grape Juice
    20 mins later: Cottage Cheese
    35 mins later: Nitrean with Olive Oil
    45 mins later: Chicken
    Dinner: 3 eggs, 1/2 bagel
    Before Bed: Casein Shake with Olive Oil

    I drink about a gallon of milk and a lot of water throughout the day as well.

    This comes out to about 5,000 calories in a split of around 33%/33%/33%. I have been putting on about 1.5 lbs/week with this.

    Thanks for any help.

    Come on Justin, this is covered almost daily. Read Built's cutting guide. 10% or so under maintence, 1g/LBM protein .5g/LBM fat, and fill the rest with whatever makes you comfortable.
