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?

    holy **** kid! looking real thick especially for a 13 year-old! you're by far the biggest 13 year old i've seen

    i'd definitely say clean bulk. you're 13 and you're pretty lean so imagine how you'd look with your current conditioning + 10-20 lbs of lean mass.

    by the way are you sure you're 5'9'' 180 lbs? because i'm 5'9'' as well currently at 160 lbs and i look a lot thicker

    anyway very impressive

    Pretty decent size for a 13 year old. Weight looks to be more like 145-155 though.

    Anyways, like some others have said, at your age there is no need to worry about cutting/bulking. Just eat healthy, lift heavy (with proper form) and get plenty of sleep.

    At 13, don't 'bulk' or 'cut'. Eat a healthy, balanced diet (I'm sure you eat a lot, keep doing that). Since you are still growing and are so young, getting good nutrition is far more important than trying to 'bulk' or 'cut'

    You'll end up pretty much 'bulking' until you are much older.

    At this age, don't stress details.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    You must have some 30" inch quads down there because that upper looks like the torso of a 145 pounder.

    Sorry, I should certainly note you look great. Also, at 13 with that size you're going to be bigger than all your friends anyway. It's not like you're going to get fat so, just eat.
