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?

    Bulking Attempt

    Started bulking about 5 weeks ago. As you can see it doesn't take me long to put some body fat on, but my waist is still 33-34 inches. Bulking is hard for me because I used to be so overweight and I am terrified that I 'll end up fat again........

    Current Stats:
    Height : 5'8.5"
    Weight :199 lbs.
    Waist 33-34"

    you look diesel man!
    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

    lol....
    I have short arms and am not that tall to begin with so I look bigger than what I am. I haven't measured in a couple weeks, but I think my stats are as follows:

    Chest : 47.5"
    Arms : left-17", right-16 3/4"
    legs : lagging of course but I am working on them (lol)

    Oh, and my goal is maybe 210-215 while keeping my waist at 34" or below. Which is getting hard to do now. I was goign to cut for the summer, but due to work I won't be going to the beach with my family this year so I figure I might as well keep on bulking.

    Thanks man. And I always thought of my lats as a weak point. My middle traps area (??) is lacking a bit also as far as thickness goes. I want that 3-dimensional look to my back.

    Looking good man! Arms look great!

    Facially you look like a clone of this guy I know. He can't be much more than 90lbs though. Always wondered what he'd look like big.

    I envy your arms man! Hey it looks like you got some good size on you. You should try and do some shoulder shrugs so it does'nt appear that your neck is small. You look great man!

    Looking pretty good. Arms are huge - traps look like a potential weak point although the angle doesn't exactly favour them. It might just be that your arms are so big everything else appears smaller!

    Thanks again for all the comments. Yes my traps are a weak spot. I just started doing power shrugs, and I think I may start doing Hise shrugs also. I do have some traps from the heavy deadlifts, but the traps aren't near what I want them to be.

    impressive. Better pics would help. How long have you been lifting?

    Dyersburg, TN huh? Yepp. That would be me dude. I typically am in the gym 4-5 days a week, but it's always at different times. With a wife and 2 kids it is hard to get in there at the same time every day. I just do what I can - when I can.

    I've been lifting off and on for about 5 years now. I have to put my family first so my progress isn't really what it should be for lifting for 5 years, but it's a lot better than nothing at all.
