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?

    MMA training/waiting

    After seeing all of the posts here, i think it's time i put in my two cents as far as routines go. i started the summer at 5'11, with a raw 130 lbs (5-25-07). i've gained 15 lbs up to this point (8-1-07).
    i'm not happy to say the least, considering that i've been lifting all summer, and haven't seen any improvement up until a month ago (when i got serious about protein shakes, and supplements). it's been two weeks since i started my detox/diet:

    meal 1- pure-protein bar
    meal 2- sandwich (75% meat)
    meal 3,4- tuna fish (canned) and 10 crackers.
    meal 5- grilled chicken, or beef, with bread and vegetables.
    meal 6- same as 3 & 4.

    i'm pretty happy about this, and i pray that this will help. i'm also buying lucine, arginine, and glutamine as soon as i get my paycheck.

    my only supplements right now are 5.25 grams of creatine a day, and a heapload of serious mass protein shake.

    strength was:

    bench- 185
    squat- 200
    deadlift- 190

    strength is:

    bench- 210
    squat- 225
    deadlift- 220

    ...these are the only three i believe are important enough to max.

    dumbells and cables helped ALOT with bench, full squats and romanian deadlift helped ALOT with squat, and various lat/ lower back excersises (including romanian deadlift) helped my deadlift.

    so, now that all that's down, i'll be back once i hit 150 (which, god willing, will be next week).
    140 lbs.

    benchpress- 215

    What martial arts do you take? I'm currently a 'freelancer', but plenty of experience in Muay Thai, Jiu-Jitsu, Shaolin-do, and Kickboxing.

    Took what was useful, and I present myself as the martial artist I am.

    Good luck with your journey.
