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?

    Dude, great gains, specially back and chest. your chest doesnt look as lean as your back, though... but nonetheless great gains

    Treat your body well. Feed it well and exercise it, so that you can use all it's beauty and strenght.

    Cals right now are 3,300 for a slower bulk. Ive gotten to the point where I need to be more precise (after newbie gains)

    I only use a protein supplement.

    My goals? Basically to just look better every year. I can already bench 300 which was an original goal starting back up. I just like to be my best for vball season

    10 lbs? Yea, that can be water weight as well as increased compounds from things such as waste products from the extra calories. Youll get to the point where youll notice some major changes if youre paying close enough attention.

    back looks the best IMO, everything looks sick though. You should get a big tribal across your upper back that would look ****in cool.

    Wow. You've really done an amazing job!

    If you don't mind some constructive criticism? You managed to stay pretty lean on your bulk which is awesome (very nice job on that). If I were you I'd cut for a bit to really bring out what you have. Given how lean you are already I'd think that it wouldn't take too terribly long and you won't sacrfice much lbm in the process. Then I'd do a careful and targeted bulk aiming at bringing up your back. Backs are just one of those things that takes awhile to come in and really fully develop. You could use a bit more breadth and thickness. Can't compare the wheels because the pics not showing up. I'd also like to see a tricep shot to see how your arms are balanced. Overall you've done a great job. No where but to go but up
