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?

    Help me transform

    Hey guys whats up. So I weigh about 125, and I'm going to quit bein a lazy stoner and start getting into a good hobby. My goal is to reach 150 and I am going to do WBB1. I have 2 questions

    1. What should I eat thats going to help me gain weight?

    2. The reps and the sets are pretty low on WBB1...am I just supposed to do the heaviest weight I can do or something?

    Thanks for any help guys.

    Good man on the decision. Now stick with it. Read the sticky diet/nutrition threads, specifically "what a bodybuilder eats."

    125 lbs at any height is pretty thin, you need to eat big. my personal favorite foods are as follows.

    1) milk
    2) whole eggs
    3) cheeses
    4) red meat
    5) tuna and fish
    6) chicken
    7) peanut butter
    8) almonds
    9) fruits
    10) vegys
    11) oatmeal

    theres your diet, use WBB eat those foods and get big.

    The first week or so, you don't want to lift as heavy as you can. You want to learn the movements with lighter weight until you master the form for the exercises. Any time you learn a new exercise, you need to master the form before you go up in weight. This is especially important with compound movements like the deadlift and squat, which you DO NOT want to do wrong, and you REALLY don't want to learn them wrong from the get-go. So, take a week or so to master the movements (sometimes more for things like deadlifts and squats) and then you can start increasing the intensity. And always use warm up sets before going really heavy.

    Learn to do everything right from the beginning and you will have a greater chance at preventing injury. Always use a weight that you can control completely and can keep the proper form. Never sacrifice form for heavier weight.
