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?

    the real Jay Cutler

    i decided to keep a journal to help me stay organized. I starting weight lifting sometime in June. I'm 22, 6'3'' and right now 195 lbs. I think i'm around 17% percent body fat. That's what one of those cheap scales said but I don't trust it. Back in May I weighed around 225 pounds. With diet, weight lifting, and lots of running, I got down to 195 where I haven't been in years. Anyways now, I am just trying to lower bodyfat while keeping muscle and gaining strength. I have gotten considerably stronger because this is the first time that I have actually been dedicated to weight training. I am going to start my own version of Starting Strength and then throw in some other things.

    Today I did rack pulls(couldn't do DL's im still nursing a bad hammy), assisted chins and ran 2 miles

    Rack Pull:
    45 X 8
    135X8
    135X8
    135X8

    Assisted Chins:
    3 X -6


    Stay tuned...(If you want)

    Really sore today... I'm way more sore by my shoulder blades than my lower back for some reason. Today is a light cardio day. I am shooting for 2 miles straight of running at 6.5 mph(don't laugh, I have never been an athletic kid - trying to get there though)

    As for diet, I try to eat something small with a lot of protein every few hours. Ever since I switched from eating 2 or 3 big meals a day to eating smaller meals more frequently I am way more hungry than I have ever been. It's amazing to actually see the metabolism at work.

    Currently reading Starting Strength. Good stuff. I am going to commit to this routine, and add a few other stuff like pull ups and skull crushers. I see that he has a Programming book out too. I'm kind of mad because I didn't see that before I bought this one. Anyone have that book too?

    Day1:
    Squat
    Bench
    Deadlift
    Skull Crushers

    Day2:
    Cardio

    Day3:
    Squat
    Military Press
    BB Rows/Pendlay Rows
    Chinups/Pullups
    Maybe some Bicep Curls(If I feel like it that day)

    Day4:
    Cardio

    Repeat

    Today:

    Bench:
    95X8
    115X6
    135X6
    125X6
    (I focused on touching my chest for all these sets, that's why the weight was down from last time.)

    Squat (Smith Machine since I was in a rush and the power racks were all full)
    45X6
    95X6
    95X6
    115X6

    I can tell already that these are going to improve a lot. I have never really squated before.

    Military Press:
    75X6
    85X6
    85X6
    85X6

    Assisted Dips:
    -7 x 10
    -6 X 8
    -5 X 8

    Day 1:

    Squat:
    3X5 115 lbs PR

    Bench:
    3X5 135 lbs

    Rack Pulls(I tried regular DL but my quads couldn't take it. I set the pins below the knee though):
    1X5 135 lbs
    1X5 155 lbs PR

    Dips:
    1X8 -7 resistance
    1X8 -5 resistance
    1X8 -4 resistance PR

    Great workout considering I think I am coming down with a cold. Took lots of Vitamin C today so we will see. I set some PR's, not much to brag about but I am happy with my progression so far.

    wow i haven't updated in a while...

    here is what I have done in about a month(still on Rippetoe's)

    Bench Press:
    125 to 155 30 lb increase

    Squat:
    115 to 185 70 lb increase

    Deadlift:
    135 to 245 110 lb increase

    Mil. Press:
    85 to 115 30 lb increase

    240 pounds total increase in about a month. Also about a 7 pound increase in bodyweight. I'm wondering how much of that is muscle vs. fat.
