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?

    Reasonable Goals?


    I've recently set myself some goals i want to reach before i go on holiday. I was just wondering if they are achievable or not. i have been lifting for around 6 weeks now.
    Im doing wbb1 and i assume im eating enought calories because ive been putting a lbs or 2 on every week.

    weight now 154 - goal 180
    bench now 145 - goal 200
    squat now 154 - goal 240
    Deadlift 154 - goal 240
    Millitary press now 88 - goal 132
    cg bench now - 120 - goal 165

    The date i want to reach these goals by is 31st july which gives me around 21 weeks. All weights now and goals are for 6 - 8 reps.

    Any comments apreciated
    Height 5,8
    Start weight 147
    Currnet weight 158
    Target weight 180

    I think all of those goals are very reasonable, especially in 21 weeks. I also think you could increase your deadlift more than that. If your goals are specifically strength, you should look into westside variations and wave loading. You can get a lot out of them, especially if you're riding newbie gains.
