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?

    Procrastinator starts working.

    Original lifts (May 2007):
    Bench - 140 x 12
    Squat - 275 x 8 (3/4 parallel)
    Deadlift - 235 x 8
    Row - 125 x 8
    Military Press - 115 x 8


    By the end of May 2007, my senioritis kicked in SO much that I actually stopped lifting from then to October. I also just found out I failed one of my classes because of laziness with waking up.


    Newest Lifts (Pre-Winter procrastination: October 2007 - November 2007)
    Bench - 135 x 5
    Squat - 225 x 8 (parallel)
    Deadlift - ?
    Row - 105 x 5
    Military press - 95 x 5



    Given that I want to get big again and in better shape by the summer, how long should I look to train for to get at:

    Lift Goals:
    Bench - 175 x 8
    Squat - 295 x 10 (parallel)
    Deadlift - 255 x 8
    Row - 135 x 10
    Military Press - 135 x 5


    I am also going to start my lifting journal on here, seeing as I have a composition notebook journal for nutrition by itself. I will post starting pictures soon too.

    So I went to my first session since late November, and it went ok, even if I was sore before it. Here are my numbers:

    5 minute pyramid running warm up plus stretching

    Squat:
    two sets of ten reps @ 195 lbs
    one set of eight reps @ 205 lbs
    one set of six reps @ 215 lbs


    Bench:
    two sets of eight reps @ 115 lbs
    one set of five reps @ 125 lbs
    one set of five reps @ 135 lbs

    Deadlift:
    two sets of eight reps @ 185 lbs
    one set of five reps @ 205 lbs

    Military Press:
    one set of eight reps @ 65 lbs
    one set of eight reps @ 75 lbs
    one set of eight reps @ 80 lbs

    and two sets of eight reps of weighted incline crunches, no clue about the weight of the ball. I didnt do calf raises or barbell curls because I had to rejoin the gym since I was no longer a member, but they let me work out today anyway.
