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?

    Mission: To know what it feels like having a grandpa back

    Chest/Back
    November 5th

    160 x 10

    Comments:Felt great doing some deadlifts, everything felt really strong. I need to start hitting bench hard, and asking for a spot so I can push myself. I was happy with deadlifts, and even my incline DB work. Overall a great workout. Next time I'm going to do a lot more work with deadlifts, probably 5-6 sets. Weight is around 191-192...probably going to continue bulking to 205-210 and see how I feel when I get there.

    Monday- Chest/Back
    Tuesday-Shoulders/Arms/Traps
    Wednesday-Legs
    Thursday-Off
    Friday-Chest/Back
    Saturday-Legs
    Sunday-Off

    How's this look? I really hate having to do chest/back/shoulders/arms all in one day.

    There's so many ways you could go with this...the chest is one of the main body parts that could probably use training twice per week otherwise you risk going overboard. Hope you can find a groove with a new split soon.

    Session is looking nice.

    Another great workout, tomorrow is legs. My routine is constantly being switched up basically so me and my partners can do the same muscle groups, but I'm making sure I get sufficient rest for each muscle when I hit it.

    Insane workout, my legs are killing me. If I had a spot, could have possibly gone 5-10lbs heavier on each set, with maybe a few extra reps..but I still refuse to go crazy without a spot with my knee and all. Had insane lower back tightness, really just an aweful pain and I'm 99% sure it's because of my hamstrings. Really going to focus on stretching them out to help with the lower back issues.

    Doing 3 movements is enough in most cases, I've seen peeps just do one exercise and call it a day, lol.

    Good job man, them high reps alone deserve props.

    Great workout, I'm starting to realize that tons of machines are different, so logging my weights is just pointless on most of my movements. Anything that is dumbell/barbell I will still record my weights, but my leg press at school I can barely do 225-315, and the one at Gold's I could do 500-600 with ease because of the angle. The squats were solid, was expecting more, but I was happy to be able to move 275 pretty easily.

    Was a long ass workout, but I really wanted to rip my chest cause I've been hitting a wall lately. Next time I'm gonna drop the reps down and keep everything in the 3-5 range and see how that works. Overall, things are really coming together. Mass is piling on, and the fat is almost non-existant. I'll probably bulk to 210, and then cut down slowly until I'm around 8-9%. Hopefully be ready for summer

    Had an extremely intense back workout yesterday. Wasn't able to write down any of the workouts cause my partner and I just hit that zone and just wanted to maintain the intensity. Did weighted pullups, t-bar rows, HS high rows, pull downs, and then various bicep work. Today is heavy legs

Push press was a new movement for me, I'm more of a military press kinda guy but always up for trying new stuff. Tomorrow is off, and Friday is Chest/Back..gonna try to put up some heavier numbers on chest 245-255ish.

    One of the best workouts I've had in a very long time. Really happy with the weights, and also happy to get a break from the high rep schemes. Coming down with a little bit of a cold (runny nose, sore throat) I think it might be the pressure dropping for winter or even just the humidity in my room. Going to increase vitamin C to like 2g/d. For some reason my close-grip is really insane, I guess my chest is just not as strong as my triceps.
