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?

    Good job. What routine and diet did you use?
    I went to Rhodestown and all I got was this high cholesterol

    I did some different things at first but currently I'm using the WBB1 program and I like it, i'm still seeing results but once that starts to slow down a little i'll move on to WBB2. As far as my diet I just made sure to eat a lot of protein, and not eat junk too much lol, I just tried to make it decent overall. My next goal is 250 by September 1st.

    I remember when I was about to hit 2 pps I said I would walk out of the gym because my work would be completed (as a joke of course)

    that was a long time ago and i'm still going for 3 pps, if i didn't lift so inconsitantly I probably would have got it by now.

    anyways good work!

    From 225 to 315 is a much longer journey. I'd set 250 as my next goal, then 275, then 300, then 315. Gotta have those shorter term goals to stay motivated.

    Congrats on getting those 2 plates, though!
