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?

    My routine, please comment on weights.

    Hi there, I've been weightlifting solid for about 2 weeks now (I've been browsing the forums for a while and experimenting here and there). Given my height, weight, and age, does the following seem low for the amount of time I've been weight lifting?


    Current Height 5'10.5, Current Weight 205 lbs, Age 21

    I'll try and post some pics when i get a camera available

    My goals: To be able to lift as much weight as I can and to look somewhat defind, I'm 205 right now, but really don't look fat (at least I do'nt think so)

    My biggest concern is chest... could my form be off THAT much that I'm underlifting in the BP?

    Well if you have only been lifting for 2 weeks, generally, you are not going to start with 2 plates on each side for bench. Keep at it, eat well, get plenty of rest and it will increase in time.

    As for bench form, it can help, there are plenty of articles on this site on how to improve bench.

    BTW, for a beginner to lifting, your deadlift is real good.
