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?

    good workout and good luck with your goals drew. Has your car accident held your training back at all? I was going to play varsity hockey this year but the coach wouldnt let me on the ice for the last tryout because I didnt pay my money to him early enough in the day. Next year though i'll probly play.

    Thanks Detard, thats too bad about hockey last year for you.

    I didn't get hurt at all in the accident. If anything, It helped my training because I was forced to stay an extra hour - hour and a half after school and wait for the bus (I didn't have a car for about a month). During that time I'd stay in the gym and train. Now I have a car, and after practice I drive myself to a better gym to train.

    I would try and work on being super explosive and stoping on a dime on the ice, thats probably going to be the biggest factor. But being big never hurt a hockey player of course

    Thanks degroff and north. Nothin was wrong with the burrito, I just felt sick after I ate it

    Pretty bad meet yesterday, 14 flat in the 100, and got DQed in my 4x200m relay because we had a handoff outside of the zone.

    Today I did the crossfit warmup, some squats, a little rowing, some jumprope, and some presses. I finished off with some snatch form work. Pretty light and not very intense day.

    Diet was pretty good:

    M1: 4 eggs/2 tortillas
    M2: 2 turkey burgers (wheat bun, sliced turkey, turkey patty, provolone cheese), soup, and some milks
    (train)
    M3: 2 scoops nitrean in milk
    M4: not sure yet

    Plan for tomorrow is to go play some open hockey then maybe the crossfit WOD.

    Did the Crossfit WOD today.

    Double-unders (very broken up sets.. I suck at them.)
    Glute-Ham Situps
    Back Extentions

    My time was somewhere around 25 min, and I was dead afterwards.

    Diet:
    water throughout day
    M1: 4 eggs, english muffins, natty pb, jelly, lots of milk
    M2: 2 scoops nitrean, skim milk
    M3: 2 scoops nitrean, skim milk
    M3: chicken quesadilla

    Squats for the WOD tomorrow, and probably some hockey.

    Yesterday did the WOD: 5 x 5 Squats

    225, 245, 255, 265, 275

    Normally would have went heavier, but I had hockey a half hour before this workout, so my legs were already fried.

    Today just did the track workout: 6 sprints downhill, 150m

    Diet yesterday was good.

    Today's:
    M1: 4 eggs/2 tortillas
    M2: Re-heated steak, asparagus, and a tortilla from yesterday night.
    (training)
    M3: 2 scoops strawberry nitrean in skim
    M4: chicken breasts

    Oh man, I bet those 100ft walking lunges were killer.

    How did you go about measuring the distance, or did you just wing it.

    degroff - Yea, they were tough. I figured every lunge was ~3 feet, so I did 30 lunges each set.

    Did the crossfit again today, four rounds of 5 pullups and 50 squats.

    Thanks degroff... for the track meet, to sum it up in one word: horrible. I was feeling pretty bad the whole day, and after my poor performance in the 100, I didn't even feel like running my 200.

    Lots of yard work last few days, getting ready for today's WOD in a few hours... I'm pumped.

    Crossfit:
    135 lbs Overhead Squat - 5 reps
    Pull-ups - 5 reps

    As many rounds as possible in 20 min.

    I did 7, and then passed out in a puddle of sweat under the squat rack.

    How did you choose 135 for OH squat? did you just pick a weight you thought you could do?

    Rxed workout said bodyweight overhead squat. I just scaled down to what I thought would be challenging. I had never done more than a 115 OH Squat before this workout.
