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?

    The official :hump: thread

    Ok, time to get serious.

    This will be updated everyday, not just with lifts but with diet, rest, goals, sets, reps, etc... basically, the whole sch - bang!

    The following diet plan is what i will try to consume each and everyday (on non-trainning days, the post-trainning meal will be replaced with a MRP and fruit).

    I have other meals worked out that i can substitute in for practicality or for a 'cheat'.

    The times shown are all approximations that i will aim for.

    Diet Plan

    Meal 1: [8:30am]
    - Muslei (+ milk)
    - 2 Whole eggs
    - 4 eggs whites
    - apple
    Meal 2: [10:30am]
    - Tuna (+ Mayo) on
    - 4 slices wheat bread
    - orange
    Meal 3: [1pm]
    - roast beef on
    - 4 slices wheat bread
    - banana
    Meal 4: (post trainning) [3:30pm]
    - 1/2 Nlarge2 + milk(usually with creatine)
    Meal 5: [6pm]
    - Oatmeal ( + milk)
    - Whey protein shake
    - 1 tsp PB
    Meal 6: [9pm]
    - 2 chicken breast
    - rice
    - 1 tsp flax
    Meal 7: [11:30pm]
    - tuna
    - 1 slice wheat bread

    Daily totals:
    4203.7 kcals
    318.1g protein
    521.8g carbs
    93.8g fat


    Currently taking Glutamine, creatine, Vitamins, cod liver oil and glucosamine.


    Training goals

    1. Thicker shoulders
    2. Overall thicker chest ----> better development
    3. Thicker calves

    These are the present main concerns although obviously overall bodily development is the ultimate goal.

    Training split:

    Monday - Chest triceps abs
    Tuesday - Back biceps forearms
    Wednesday - rest
    Thursday - Quads Hams Calves
    Friday - Delts Traps

    [All sets to failure]

    Monday 2nd April

    Have reduced weights due to last week being a week off. Will gradually get back up to old lifts in a few weeks.

    Trainning

    Chest:
    Flat bench - 80kg for 6 reps + 2 forced.
    - 80kg for 7 reps + 2 forced.

    Incline DB - 30kg DB's for 6
    - 30kg DB's for 7

    Machine Flyes - 50kg for 10

    Incline side crunches - 14 reps
    Incline sit ups - 10

    Broomstick bends - 30 reps
    DB side bends - 12 reps with 24kg DB's

    The above ab workout is an outline of what i usually do. I will not make a diary of ab workouts after this one.

    Diet
    Been good so far. Nothing missed, chicken is cooked and ready to be munched.

    Water could be higher, speaking of which...~grabs a pint of water~

    All vits and supps are taken so far.

    Rest
    I am completely fuked now after that session. Last nights sleep was about 7 hours which needs sorted out. Will try to get to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. If you are talking to me in the chat and it's late, tell me to get to bed! haha...

    Goals
    Goals will begin as of next week once i have settled back into my trainning.

    Tuesday 3rd April

    Trainning

    after sufficient warm ups
    Back:
    Deads - 120kg for 8 reps
    - 130kg for 4-5 reps

    Pull-ups - 10 reps
    - 6 reps
    - 5 reps

    One - arm DB rows - 10 reps either side with 38kg DB
    - 8 reps either side with 40kg DB

    Low - pulley cable row - 70kg for 6 reps

    Biceps:
    Standing BB curl - 35kg for 12 reps
    - 40kg for 5-6

    Standing Alt DB curl - 8 reps either side with 18kg DB

    Forearms:
    Forearm trainning is dependant upon fatigue levels after back and biceps trainning - sometimes will fry them, sometimes won't. I will not keep a record of forearm trainning, but if you want to see my general workout, see previous posts.

    Diet

    Food is ok so far.

    Water is terrible.

    Supps are almost all taken.

    Water has improved slightly but is still not sufficient.
    All supps are sorted

    Rest

    Was up till 2am talking to Anthony, getting help to fix my PC. I ended up sleeping in so overall got about 8 hours. Still tired though. Get to bed earlier.

    Trainning

    No trainning today - rest.

    Diet

    Fine and dandy although i think some are gonna be a little more spaced out than i'd like.

    First few meals were indeed spaced out but still got each down within 3 hours. All other meals have been super dooper.

    Bought more roast beef today...Mmmmmm.....

    Rest

    Got about 8 hours sleep in last night and got up on time which was nice.

    Trainning

    Legs to day:

    Leg extensions - 12 reps with 35kg
    - 10 reps with 50kg
    - 10 reps with 60kg
    (could go alot heavier on these but i don't like the feelng in my knees so i use them for a warm up and a 'pre - exhaust' if you will for quads)

    Did some Smith squats today instead of Leg press (some fools were taking ages on it) so i won't record the sets.

    Seated curl - 40kg for 12
    - 50kg for 10
    - 60kg for 7-8

    Didn't do standing curls because hams felt fried from squats.

    Seated calf - 10 reps with 60kg
    - 8 reps with 60kg
    - 16 reps with 15kg <----- Not a drop set. High rep set to fatigue white fibres (or is it red fibres? - feel free to tell me people)

    Standing calf - 80kg for 12 reps
    - 95kg for 8 reps

    Diet

    Today was my first day with the 'real' meal plan shown in previous post. I slept in by 2 hours so the frist few meals were a bit late and a bit more crammed than i'd have originally planned, but they are sorted now.

    Supps are all sorted.

    Water has been ok today suprisingly.

    Rest

    As i stated earlier, i slept in so i got about 9 hours kip which was nice. Nicely rested for leg day .

    No trainning - rest day.

    Diet

    Only had one meal so far, but it will be perfect.

    Water will be good too.

    Rest

    Good. Feel fine.

    I woke up this morning and my arms felt small. They looked small too. Smaller than usual anyway. I was not best pleased Anyhoo, they sorted themselves out. I put it down to work and the fact that my biceps were still slightly hurting from Tuesdays workout. Once i get back used to working and trainning, i will be ok.

    Everything came about pretty darn OK today.
    I feel good at present.
    Got work in the morning and evening tomorrow which i don't like too much but never the less......

    No rest for the sexy eh?........

    My shoulder was sore this morning and throughout the day, but the pain vanished once i was in to my trainning. I think it is coming back now though. No more trainning till Tuesday - due to work and the gym being closed on friday and monday.

    Haha, you may notice that i achieved the goals i set for my first few exercises, but after that they go down hill due to fatigue haha...Anyhoo.....

    Trainning

    Back:
    Deads - 8 reps with 120kg
    - 5-6 reps with 130kg technically i would have done 6 reps on this one, but my right hand grip gave out too much and my form was suffering so i opted not to complete the rep.

    Pull - ups - 12 reps
    - 8 reps
    - 6 reps

    One arm rows - 11 reps with 38kg
    - 9 reps with 40kg

    Low cable rows - 10 reps with 70kg

    Biceps:
    BB curls - 11 reps with 35kg
    - 5 reps with 40kg <----- wanted to get 8 reps but was way off - fatigue really kicks my ass

    DB curl - 4 reps with 18kg DB <------wanted 10! ~shakes head~ 'tut tut' was fuked at this point so there you go (my excuse)

    Diet

    Has been good. My Nlarge didn't come when it should and the guy phoned up saying that they don't do banana flavour which i'm really not pleased about. It will get here by Thursday they say. I don't mind though cause i ain't trainning again till tuesday, which gives my shoulder some much needed rest i suppose...

    I took a water bottle to college for the first time ever today so water has been really good thus far.

    All supps are on time although i forgot to take my glut last night.

    Rest

    Got to bed by 12 last night so got a about 71/2 - 8 hours kip which was nice.

    Goals

    No trainning goals due to no trainning, so my only goals will be to get alot of rest and keep the good diet up - which won't be a problem

    Oh yeah, forgot to mention a few changes.

    firstly with trainning: I shall remove the side laterals and will do an extra DB press set. So my routine is now:

    DB press - 2 sets
    rear lats - 1 set

    And secondly, my diet has changed with the substitution of grape juice and protein shake for Nlarge2.

    This means that the new daily breakdowns are:

    4203.7 kcals
    318.1g protein
    512.8g carbs
    93.8g fat

    MY GOD!

    The best God damn workout EVER!

    Training

    Deads:
    - 105kg for 8 reps
    - 130kg for 6 reps

    Bench:
    - 85kg for 6 reps + 2 forced
    - 85kg for 4 reps + 2 forced

    Ok, i did not record any other reps or weights because i supersetted my other exercises:

    DB Incline press Vs Pull - ups

    Machine flyes Vs Cable rows

    BB curls Vs Seated skulls

    Rope pressdowns Vs Cable curls

    ~felt sick~

    I thought i was gonna vomit.

    All this took 45 minutes. I got such a pump it was ridiculous. I seriously thought i was gonna say hello to my breakfast again. I'm still feeling rather ill as i write this. I'm so tired now it's amazing.

    Diet

    Has been OK so far but i've only had 2 meals. Lets hope my 'illness' doesn't screw my diet up eh...

    Water has been and continues to be good. Ace.

    Supps May be put off. I haven't decided yet.

    Rest

    Got about 9 hours kip last night. I'm so tired right now, you wouldn't believe it.

    Seen as how my trainign has been screwed up a bit the past few weeks, i will not make any goals until next week when the progression recommences...

    Training

    Back:
    Deads - 120kg for 8 reps
    - 140kg for 3 reps <------ I was supposed to be doing 130kg but didn't actually realise that i was doing 140! I thought it was a bit heavy...(see below for new training strategy)

    Pull ups - 12 reps
    - 6 reps
    - 5 reps <--- These are sufferning from my deadlifts

    One arm Row - 38kg DB for 12 reps Goal achieved
    - 40kg for 10 reps Goal achieved

    Cable row - 70kg for 12 reps Goal achieved

    Biceps:
    BB curl - 35kg for 12 reps Goal achieved
    - 40kg for 6 reps

    DB curl - 18kg DB for 8 reps Goal achieved

    Diet

    Went and played snooker for a bit yesterday so meals 5 and 6 were very spaced out.

    Also had a pint. Ace.

    Water was good on the whole.

    Rest

    Got about 10 hours last night which was very shagadelic .

    General notes

    Ok, my new training strategy:

    I usually build up to my heaviest weight on some exercises. I used to do it on benching, but now i just do my heaviest set twice. My benching is improving too so i'm gonna apply this to my deadlifting too.
    Instead of doing a set of 120 then a set of 130, i'm gonna do two sets of 130 (or whatever my heaviest weight is). I think i will progress better using this method.
    This new strategy will also be applied to other exercises. I will tell which ones as i decide. I think my legs are progressing enough without this method.
    I'm also considering doing pull ups before deads because my progression on them is definatly suffering. For example, i was supposed to get 12 reps/10 reps then 8 reps. ~was no where near~
    We'll see how it goes...

    Diet

    On tuesday night i supplemented with 2 pints of guiness and 2 glasses of red wine because it was my dad's birthday. I haven't beed drunk in a long while and what a refreshing experience it was...I'm such a light weight....

    I went to my mates gig last night so meal 6 was a protein bar - a melted, squishy one at that....

    as for today, all supps have been on time, food is good and since i plan on spending the whole day in, it will stay good.

    My tuna sarnie and orange is fast becoming my favourite meal of the day...

    Water was good up to a point yesterday but since i was out of the house for 4 hours it became quite terrible.

    Rest

    I went to bed at a decent hour last night suprisingly and i would say i may have even been in bed for about 11 hours which is rather kick ass.

    My loeg session is becoming a very productive one for me. I seem to be doing more than my prospected goals each session which is just ace. I may get very drained from them but at least i know i'm making a difference.

    Shoulders:
    DB press - 12 reps w/ 26kg
    - 6 reps with 28kg

    Machine Rear lats - 12 reps w/ 35kg

    Traps:
    Shrugs - 12 reps w/ 40kg
    - 12 reps w/ 45kg

    Very productive session - achieved all goals and even surpassed the goal set of getting 10 reps on the rear lats. ace.

    Diet

    Yesterday i had a couple more pints: one pint of 'Murphy's' and one pint of 'John Smith's'. I'm a hardened drinker now...Oh yes...Actually, that is my last drink of alcohol for a while now.tuttut no more beer for Ole' Papa. It was just called for after i did nearly 6 hours of revision in total yesterday. ace.

    Todays meals will be more spaced out than ever before due to my sudden early awakening this morning. It shouldn't be a problem though.

    All supps are sorted and cause of work tonight, water will be excellent all day.

    Rest

    I got to bed at about 12:15am last night and some how was up at 7am. Now, I'm no genius (bah who am i kidding, of course i am) but them maths ain't good. 6 Hours sleep is quite appauling and i'm tired after training now. I think i'll just whip a nice big pot O' coffee on the boil and hope for the best. The fact that I'll be getting tired from revision today is bad enough but I'm also working tonight which is arse. I'm gonna be very tired by the end of this day...

    At least i know i'll get about 10 hours kip in tonight though.
