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?

    approx 1.25gal water consumed as well..


    :::the workout::: - on 6/10 *full body tension to prepare for carb load

    I experimented again with complex training::

    deadlift->SLDL->yates row->hang clean->front squat->push jerk->back squat->GMs

    approx 60-120 seconds between exercises...

    135x6, 185x6, 235x6

    flat db bench- 120x10, 120x8, 120x8
    db side raises- 55x6

    *ran out of time


    :::the cardio::: *off


    :::the thoughts:::
    SLOPPY ****ing carb load.. this will be a staple to look back and see how NOT to carbload. I looked like absolute **** the next day and for 2 days thereafter. **** that! I'm dropping sodium, dropping carbs down to about 1400ish, dropping protein down to about 250ish and dropping fat back under 50 grams. The next carb load is looking to be approx 7000kcals:::

    next projected carb load (6/21-6/22)::

    0500p- 1 scoop ON, 1 scoop glyco-maize
    *tension workout*
    0700p- 1 scoop ON, 2 scoops powerade, 5 scoops glyco-maize, 1 scoop creatine
    0900p- 1 scoop ON, 2 scoops powerade, 5 scoops glyco-maize, 1 scoop creatine
    0700a- 6 cups cheerios, 24oz ff milk
    1000a- 6oz pasta, 2 cups tomato sauce
    1200p- 2 bagels, 1 scoop creatine
    0400p- 1 box FMV mac&cheese (1/2 seasoning to reduce sodium)
    0600p- 6oz pasta, 2 cups tomato sauce
    0900p- 1 box FMV mac&cheese (1/2 seasoning to reduce sodium, 8oz ff milk

    calorie breakdown:: 6999kcals:: 240p/1422c/39f

    I'm going to have a piece of cake though, since it'll be my 25th birthday and all. So that'll probably add some cals, but hopefully not too many.

    Ok, onto the workout.. FANTASTIC workout. That was the ****. I'm going to do a that every once in a while. Though, a few of those movements were ****ing heavy. The push jerks with the 235 was a bitch and so was the hang cleans. The front squats were OK, but should have felt better, they're coming around. The bench felt great and so did the side raises.. HOWEVER, the combo of hang cleans and heavy side raises caused a little bit of RC pain. It's getting better, but I still felt the tweak, hopefully I'll be back to 100% soon so I can blast a strong delt workout next week.

    :::the thoughts:::
    Bench strength is down, however, fly strength is up. Weird.. Bicep strength is up and the shrugs are getting easier every week. I want to go higher, but I don't want to tweak my neck anymore than it already is. Still having problems from my car accident, oh well.. Forearms are starting to blow up, I'm getting wickid pumps when doing the reverse wrist curls and regular wrist curls. Feeling really good. Grip strength is DEFIANTELY up. 315 never felt so light in my hands.. stay tuned for the following workout, ****ing amazing!


    Oh.. took a couple pics for Paul this afternoon. Rear lat spread is looking good, I'm not too impressed with the rest. I'll post the front double bicep and rear lat spread. Weight is 248lbs and I look like absolute ass from that ****ty ****ing carb load.. bah.. Be nice, I'm nowhere near my goal!

    :::the ramblings:::
    Hmm... no stories at this time, sowwy..

    :::the thoughts:::
    A few things. That's the first time I've pulled over 405 in 2 years. I was pretty stoked to get up 5 plates, without too much trouble. I had that 545 in me. I got it about 4" off the ground and felt my back really really pulling hard so I dumped it. Give me a 4-5 months and I should be back up to 600. ALSO, this is the first time I've EVER pulled 495 with no wrist straps. I've really been working my forearms and grip strength and I'm definately reaping the benefits. I still use the straps on most back exercises but any kind of deadlifts or shrugs, I don't for the very reason of trying to increase grip strength. The 545 wasn't even too heavy (grip wise) either. 545 is DEFINATELY in the near future. Now, onto that pathetic delt workout. Halfway through my back workout I could feel my rotator cuffs really getting worked and it kind of felt "loose" inside. Weird, and difficult to describe. I felt it alot when doing the HS rows, so I really backed off the delt work and just did some higher rep light stuff so I could still get a little bit of reaction out of them. Would have been a fantastic session if it weren't for the ****ty delt issue.


    :::the ramblings:::
    There was a ****ing YOKED up guy in the gym with me with LEEEETLE tiny legs. lol, it was funny. Then he took his shirt off and was sporting his gray beater and, unfortunately, he wasn't as big anymore. He was definately bigger than me, don't get me wrong, he was a big ****ing guy. But the t-shirt made him look bigger. I dunno, weird. **** him.

    :::the cardio:::
    have you figured out there's no cardio on high cal days?


    :::the thoughts:::
    WOW.. I'm really happy with the squats. My knees feel great too. I decided to test the waters a little bit when 315 felt REALLY light. I jumped right up to 405 and grabbed a spotter, just in case. When I first picked it up I was like "****".. I haven't had anything over 3 plates on my back in over 2 years, same scenario as the deads. So, I picked it up and walked it out, it got easier. I went down for the first rep, broke parallel and.. BAM.. ****ing cakewalk. Popped out 2 more reps and stopped at 3. I had another 2-3 in me for sure but I didn't want to push the knee too hard. Good stuff, I'm happy with the squats. Front squats felt good too, though, its ****ing difficult to hold 185+ on your delts.. maybe cuz I'm small? lol.. Its difficult for me to stay upright, but I'm working on it. I'm really happy with how my body is coming around and adapting to everything I'm putting it through. I'm very proud of myself and my gains for being drug-free. I'm looking forward to smashing my steroid PRs with natural PRs. That's got some time though. Lol.. I'm hoping to be squatting 500 again within 6-8 months. Keep posted! Anyone that knows me definately knows I'll be pushing the bar with regards to strength. What can I say? It's my weakness, I love moving heavy ****.. but I want to look good, and that's the focus right now!

    Ok, lets discuss food.. it was good. I tried to eat semi-good and I think I did a good job.. Ah-So was pretty badass. It's a japanese restaurant and they cook the food right in front of you. The steak and shrimp was ****ing amazing. My fiance got the scallops and shrimp and wow, the scallops were fantastic. MMMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

    :::the ramblings:::
    So I took my 12 year old cousin to see Iron Man today, and it was the 2nd time I've seen it. Awesome movie. I can't wait to buy it on DVD. ALSO, I saw The Incredible Hulk. WHA WHAAAA? ****ing amazing! I don't know how else to describe it. I thought the story was fantastic and the action was even better. When the Hulk fights Abomination, holy ****! The Sonic Boom clap and the Hulk Smash fissure.. wow.. just amazing. If you haven't seen it yet, go see it. Definately worth the money.

    Snapped a picture while I was there in front of the huge Hulk display. For your viewing pleasure:::

    Looking sick bro, sorry had no internet for 2 days. I'll post my workouts in an hour when I drop my GF off at work. Dude. We are on till sept 5th. That makes me happy. If we both get down to 8% by then I will be very impressed with both of us. You do realize thats going to make both of us look beastly. Even if you do have 25lbs more LBM then I.

    mark- thanks bud.. the rear lat is my favorite pose.

    paul- I'm sure I can achieve 10% by sept 5th.. not sure about 8% but we'll see. October 5th, yes, I believe 8% is very attainable by then. Sept 5th is going to be cutting it close. I'm not doing a dirty refeed this weekend, I'm on the straight and narrow:: ROAD TO 8%!!!

    I think both of you can achieve 8% by September but it is going to be a ball buster. You will get there way before me, lol.

    On a lighter note, thanks to you I have gotten my **** together and am on day 4 of PSMF. It isn't this bad mentally this time around. I'm going to pull it off until Sunday for my first cheat meal and get some Keto sticks. I guess I needed to get sick of myself to last longer then 2 1/2 weeks on this.

    Jesus. Lookin' huge, bro. Becoming leaner is definitely treating you well. You should have given the hulk some tips while you were with him.

    I was actually thinking he would be a good candidate for the Hulk tv series.

    mark- 8% is rough man, I'm struggling to get down to even where I am now.. I'm constantly having to tweak things to keep the fat loss constant. Oh.. and I'm nowhere near big enough to play the hulk on anything! lol. thank you though.. BTW, good job on your PSMF!

    keith- thank you, sir.. but again, I don't have **** on the hulk..

    mase- thanks bro. I've actually had to cut down on the backwork to allow everything else to catch up. Once I begin bulking again, I'll increase backwork again to the norm and grow grow grow!! I do need to hit up some mase style cardio, lol.. I go to the pool every weekend, but I just don't get tan quickly.. oh well.

    :::the thoughts:::
    ****ing amazing workout... though, I DESPISE being there that long. I had plans tuesday night and had to get the full depletion finished so I pushed through it. Sipping on that powerade dilute REALLY helped with the energy and keeping intensity high. My legs were ****ing fried. I thought I was going to tear through the skin on my quads they were so pumped. I think I'm finally read to start increasing weight on depletion squats, my knees have been feeling really good lately. I got a WICKID pump for every single musclegroup.. funny thing is, that pump disappeared within 10minutes of moving onto the next bodypart. I REALLY hate back depletion, but I got a sweet burn in my lats and lower back. It felt good for once. Biceps felt like they were going to break through. Overall, it was a great workout. It almost makes me want to do full body depletion for all my depletion work, but I'm not so sure about that due to time constraints. It's really difficult being in there for almost 3 hours.

    I got nothin...

    morning weight:: ??


    :::the diet:::
    **UJD Day 02:: off day, low cals + IF
    IF:: 18.25hrs

    0615p- 4oz taco meat, 1 wheat tortilla, 1/4 cup mexican cheese, 4 scoops ON
    1145p- 3 scoops ON

    calorie breakdown:: 1373kcals:: 208p/43c/41f


    :::the workout::: *off


    :::the cardio:::
    60mins steady state cardio, treadmill, 12% incline, 2.5-1.5mph (trying to keep approx 130-135bpm heartrate), ~665kcals burned


    :::the thoughts:::
    blah, cardio sucks and I keep tasting metal **** in my mouth, I'm assuming that's ketosis.. blegh..


    :::the ramblings:::
    I finally broke down and got some KetoStix to measure ketosis to make sure I'm burning fat all the time. I've also lowered protein a little bit, but not too much. As I get leaner I'll increase protein a bit more to preserve LBM. I'm sticking around .9g/lb of protein and then subtracting 1/2 of the amount of carbohydrates consumed from protein. So, when consuming 40g of carbs, I don't need to consume as much protein, and therefore am dropping protein down 20grams. It seems to be working so far this week, I'm definately getting leaner day by day.

    .. cardio still sucks, but I'm almost halfway through Lyle's Keto Book again. Interesting read. I'm anxious to pickup his protein book and stubborn fat book..


    :::the ramblings:::
    So, I was reading that ALA assists getting into ketosis faster and keeps blood sugar low and thus insulin low and thus glucagon high.. etc etc etc... Being that I have 3 bottles laying around the house, I figured I'd give it a shot. I started today with 1g/day..

    If ALA does what it says, it would be handy for a diet such as a UD 2.0 variation.

    Cardio almost always sucks. I've taken up boxing to get it in, us fat boys need it!

    mase- fragile body? lmao, I thought I made you into a warrior, I see how weak you've become.. *sigh* I haven't given up on the goals, I'm still in the gym nearly everyday whether it's cardio or an actual workout. Weight is coming down slowly, I'm sitting around 240 for the time being. Abs are starting to come in, but not quick enough for me. Good thing is I'm not dropping any muscle this time. I'm headed to Vegas this weekend for my fiance's sister's birthday so that'll be my refeed. I'd like to checkout Golds up there too for my power workout of my UD2 (which I've transitioned to for a little bit)..

    mark- the ALA addition seems to be making it easier for me to get into ketosis and perhaps shedding about 24hours off the tmie it would normally take for me to get there. So that's good.. I'll be adding yohimbe and a fatburner here in the next 2-3 weeks..

    crazyk- boxing is amazing for cardio, and its also amazing for gluconeogenesis on low cals.. i lost so much muscle when boxing it was ridiculous.. but I didn't know a huge amount about nutrition like I do now, so that's probably the majority of the problem. I wish I could get back into boxing, but it's just too expensive.. lol

    sid- thanks bud, everyday dieting is getting very monotonous. I'm going on week 14 right now and am down about 25-30lbs or so.. cravings are high, energy is low, workouts suck, cardio sucks, and the mirror sucks even more. I'm in that middle phase where I look like **** and motivation is at an alltime low.. *sigh*

    invain- thanks, it's coming along I suppose..


    I'm coming back from Vegas on the 8th and I'll start the journal again on the 7th then take some progress pics after the carb load on the 19th..

    ok, i'll reiterate once again:: I haven't fallen off the bandwagon, well.. maybe the journal one but not training/nutrition..

    I'll post today's workout when I get it finished tonight. The journal is going to be a bit more simple too since it's a pain in the ass making it all flashy and so forth. I'm down to 230lbs as of yesterday morning and that's super depleted. I had some carbs last night during a week couple hours so I'll be hitting up a full body complex workout tonight in a HIIT type tempo and adding in some treadmill cardio and finally 5-10 mins of stairmaster HIIT with +90lbs.. I really need to start training for my CPAT (fire dept physical test).. I won't be taking the CPT until sometime next year, but I want to blow them out of the water with my performance.

    cya tonight..
