The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Last night's workout kicked ass

    DB seated press - (suprised myself) 45lb dumbells x bout 6 reps, 40lb dumbells x 8 reps, 35lbs x 10 reps
    Then I decided to do behind the neck presses instead of regular militaries.
    95lbs x 2 good clean reps + 1 forced, 80lbs x bout 7 low reps

    Cencentration Curls - 35lb dumbell x 5-6 reps, 30lb dumbell x 4 reps + 2 forced, 25lb dumbell x 5 + 1 forced, these completely destroyed my biceps. I could've stopped after the first set and had a good workout.
    Hammer curls - barely managed to pull off 5 reps with 20lb dumbells after those concentration curls

    Dumbell skull crushers(just felt like tryin em) - 35lb dumbells x 2 then straight to 30lb dumbells x 4, 25lb dumbells x 5, 20lb dumbells x 4, burned like fuggin hell. I only had 20 minutes to work with after my shoulder workout, so arms had little rest between sets.
    Then did tricep pushdowns with 40lbsx 4 or 5 reps, then had ta leave.

    Over-all an excellent workout, I'm thinkin I'm gonna be huge by summer. I could hardly lift my arms. Today so far tris and shoulders are EXTREMELY sore, biceps are starting to get pretty sore. I need to ******* eat, its becoming easy to slack of with my diet this week, but at least I'm gettin lotsa sleep. I'm goin to eat, leg workout later today.

    Leg workout sucking fucked

    Didn't lift tuesday cuz I was busy, the stayed up till 6AM today. Slept till 1PM, then worked out at 3. As you can imagine, it sucked ass. I felt really hot the whole day, and the gym wasn't any different. I was exhausted. Managed to get some good **** in anyways:
    Leg press machine- 200x10 easy, 230x3, 220x6
    Leg extension- 130x10 perfect reps w/ hold at top, 150x10

    Hyperextension/glute-ham raises- BWx10, BW+20lbs(EZ curl bar behind neck)x10, BW+60lbsx5 crappy reps, BW+40lbsx6 kick ass reps.

    Then just left cuz I felt like ****. Might miss rest of workouts this week.

    Workouts are looking good bro. Good luck with getting the results that you want. Are you still doing lots of forearm work? I am hitting up reverse BB curls and incline hammer curls for my brachioradialis, DAMN do they work!

    Just curious what grip you use when you hang form the chin bar. Overhand/underhand, how wide?
