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?

    Thanks coke

    Today

    Medium/High intensity rowing
    5k
    19:30
    avg ~28-30 spm

    definitely the fastest I've ever done it... also considering I never really row that much straight. I could have probably done sub 18 if I really wanted to, but I was working on my form and focusing on pushing with the heels.

    Coke, Jake:

    I dunno, having a bum shoulder just kinda made me look at other things to do... and rowing is actually quite good for my shoulder and a full body cardio workout. I do plan to compete in a 5k if I can ever get good enough at it. I also want to get back in and do another ironman or at least half ironman some time within the next year or two. This would require that I at least get into the 170-180 range and up the cardio a lot as well =\

    scoop of nitrean
    ~2 tbsp pb

    not really counting calories... nor do I feel the need to.

    I also added in 200mg caffeine + green tea cap + 25mg ephedrine 3x daily

    Today

    500m row warmup
    2000m row - 7:26
    ~7 minute breka
    2000m row - 7:40
    500m row cooldown

    plank - 2 minutes
    side plank - 1 minute each side
    Situps on ball - 50

    stretcth awayyyy

    Lately I've been sweating like a horse, I think it may be the added caffeine. By the time I am done working out or even just stretching its like a faucet in my body is turned on. Had I been wearing a white T it would have turned into a wet tshirt contest.

    Diet today will be ~

    bowl of cereal + milk + banana
    2 scoops of nitrean in water

    whatever I feel like eating when im done studying tonight... either cc or a sandwich.

    Today

    500m row warmup
    5000m row - medium intensity - 20:00

    3 intervals ahap
    500m
    2x250m

    stretching
    foam rolling
    rehab work

    Im getting into a good habit of routinely stretching a good 20-30 minutes after I workout now a days... the rowers at my gym are definitely off. They read low, the damper setting doesnt work, etc etc...

    Came home and fired up the grill with some marinated chicken/steamed veggies.

    Today

    My legs have been so sore from all the rowing etc that I did a sub par leg session and skipped it half way.

    cable rows
    130x6
    130x6
    130x6
    130x6

    all slow and with a pause

    rope pressdown
    80x12
    80x12
    v bar
    stack x 7
    stack x 6

    cable curl
    130x8
    130x8

    Row for an easy 30 minutes ~6k

    I ended up wasting a lot of time in the gym between lifting and cardio. I ran into a classmate and ended up talking to her for about an hour. I tried to subtly try and end the conversation with no luck. Then after I finished cardio a guy on the locker room commented on my crossfit shirt then started about crossfit... needless to say I was in the gym for like 4 hours YIKES

    Today

    15k ~ easy pace
    Time including stops ~86 minutes

    Rowing only to stop to get the feeling back in my foot... and its only my left foot that seems to get this. Im going to have to fix this some how.

    So I am taking up a training plan that involves rowing 6 days followed by a rest day. Will be throwing in 2 full body (minus chest/shoulders) along with the rowing. I will probably put them on front of my less intense steady state days.

    Day1: form of short intervals
    Day 2: weights followed by 15k steady
    Day 3: 8k steady
    Day 4: form of longer ~1.5-3k intervals
    Day 5: weights followed by 15k steady
    Day 6: 10k hard
    Day 7: rest

    Fast ~20 hours

    16 oz chicken, broccoli, apple + strawberries
    bowl of cereal + banana
    Last meal most likely a sandwich or something...

    I thought you were averaging 20+ hrs of IF?? Lately I've been seeing 18hrs..

    I've been averaging 21hrs lately.. should I back it down to 18-20?

    For the foot falling asleep, check the seat you're sitting on. i know if I sit on certain bike seats my one foot gets the same way. I would assume it would be the same for rowing. Maybe add a cushion, or try a rower with a different style seat, or even scootch your butt to a different spot on the seat.
