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?

    Soon to be "Big" Lou's Journal

    Well... this is my first journal so i guess ill just start out with a little background information. My name is Louie, i'm 18, 5'8'' and my weight is currently 175 lbs. Ive been lifting since about 16 but never really got into a serious lifting schedule, but now that i'm at college i want to get in better shape. I'm currently doing "Baby Got Back" My goals are to overall become a healthier person, gain weight, and improve my overall impedance. As far as my diet goes i'm a healthy eater but often find my self having a hard time eating enough due to college, and my schedule. Another problem for me is i broke my wrist in a couple years ago racing motocross and its never really been as strong as it use to be. The only lift that my wrist really bothers me is benching. So any workouts or idea to help strengthen my wrist would be useful.

    Day 1:

    Back:

    Rack Pulls 5x5 110,130,150,170,205
    Bent-over rows 3x8 135, 140, 140
    Cable seated rows 3x10 70, 90, 90

    Chest

    Flat Bench 5x5 110, 130, 130, 130, 125
    Incline Dumbbell press 3x8 35, 40, 45
    Dumbbell Pullovers 3x10 35, 40, 45

    Calves

    Standing calf raises 3x10 75,87.5, 100

    Abs

    Crunches 3x10 10,10,10

    As far the weight i'm lifting i wasn't really sure what to start out at and what not so this week is more just to see what i can lift then next week i will be able to get some more accurate numbers up

    Welcome Lou. Welcome to the journals, I wish you the best of luck on getting big, I am about your weight and trying to do the same. I notice you don't have any goals in there so I wanted to ask what you wanted to push for?
