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?

    to bako lifter

    Hi!

    My name is Bob, and I just joined this forum.

    what exactly is the starting strength routine, and do you like protein shakes? people tell me I take it AFTER the gym.

    I notice the name Bako shakes in your name.

    I joined a gym around 2 yrs. ago, age 55. I weigh 162. I want to GREATLY increase my strength and cardio both. I have improved GREATLY and feel i can absolutely still get better. I could not bench 60 lbs. now do 10 reps of 120, can probably do 170 once. could not do one pullup, now do 34 three times a week and will do 50 very very soon. I am taking a positive attitude. I just started squats, and I read they are very important. I will add weight as much as possible.
    do you think dead lifts would hurt my back.???


    I do weights, mon wed fri, and cardio tues thurs sat. relax and drink sunday.


    BEST OF LUCK with your workouts, and never never never ever give up.
    would like ANY advice from you.
    THANKS!!!!
    best,

    bob
    send me private message, so I can find it easier. thanks

    Nice bench, dude. Can't even imagine 275x3 right now. If you get four with that ****, you had better nail 300.

    Oh yeah I think you left something out of your address because they looked at me kinda weird when I told them where I was shipping.
