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?

    Child's play ... I've gone up 210 pounds on my 6RM since September (7 months). Of course, that's when I did them for the first time.

    *SIGH* I've been soo tired lately. Meant to go today, but I had so much work, and I'm tired. I think I'm slipping into depression. The longer I stay away from the gym, the less I want to go and face the prospect of having lost so much over the last 3 weeks.

    Notes: I'm continuing to eat like a horse. Had another large meal for lunch, pizza, muffin, bagel, o.j. water. I think I've actually gained the 14 lbs. back over the last 3 days. I wanted to get back to 170 before I left here..I might go for 180 if I can continue this binge. Either way, I have till Wednesday.

    Why are you trying to gain so much weight, so rapidly? It's almost certainly gonna be mostly fat.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    Notes: Normally I'd do back+bi's today, but finals are tomorrow, I'm not sure how late the gym is open, and the whole murder thing is really fuckin with my head right now. i gotta go do **** or somehin. Fuckin A

    As another note....My rcent attempts to gain back the weight I lost were successful. Only my rough estimate as to how many calories I consumed per day was far off. Using tables at fitday I found I was actually consuming 8,500 calories.....per day. Over the last few days I've actually taken in closer to 30,000 calories...I guess that's what eating a few pizzas a day and 30 or so mozzarella sticks does to ya...lol, oh well.

    May 09, 2002 Measurements.

    Notes: measurements for right side listed first, left side second. Not sure what to make of this...my arms aren't 16" anymore, not even close, could be from when I was sick the last month. Hopefully that'll bounce back quickly. Everything else is still good. I'm very proud of my work on my quads, the waist measurement, and most of all, my lats.

    Calves: 14" 14.25"

    Quads: 22" 21.75"

    Waist: 30.75"

    Chest: 39.5"

    Lats: 42"

    Forearms: 12.25" 12.25"

    Biceps: 15 3/8" 15 1/8"

    Neck: 16"

    How have you measured your lats separately from chest and chest separately from lats?

    Why didn;t you get someone to make a measurement around your shoulders?

    yeah, I measured each seperately.

    Shoulders is a standard measurement? Is it like a waist measurement except at the hips?
