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?

    After PSMF!

    BEFORE PICS: http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=96351

    Well I decided to quit a few days early. I just cant stand the damn diet anymore. I went down from 192 to 185. As much as it did suck, I have lost quite a bit of weight. Not much of a difference but still noticable. Some things ive noticed

    1) ALOT more chest definition (which is what I was hoping for)
    2) A little bit of definition in my arms
    3) Smaller gut (although it could be smaller)
    4) Love handles are going away

    I think im at that body % that if I were to gain some fat I wouldnt look different but at the same time if I lost a little it still wont make a difference.

    Ive got a long way to go but ive got a month and a half to shapen up!

    Question: I dont do muc cardio except for walking, if I begin HIIT, will I see some rapid initial fat loss? Is it like working out in a sense that if your new to lifting yoll gain some muscle mass quickly? If I start intense cardio will I see initial fat loss?

    If you're still doing a PSMF I wouldn't do HIIT unless its for a very short time.

    I quit the PSMF a little early. I figured that killing myself for the next few days wouldnt be worth it.

    And yes KingWilder, its like that in every set of pictures. I just figure its too blurry and I just dont care enough hahaha.

    Thanks guys!
    I really cant wait to be shredded!

    Currently my caloric intake is between 2000-2300 a day. From what iv heard, your metabolism decreases after a PSMF diet, which is fine.
    As well, im not afraid of losing LBM. As long as my protein intake is adequate I should be perfectly fine.

    Thanks guys.

    Scarz last time I checked 14.5 inches. I dont know if it was measured properly. I stuck my arm straight out to the side and my friend measured (not flexing).

    You should flex when you measure it.
