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?

    in my own world

    Training to be injury free and then comes injury prevention

    Ok boys and girls,

    here is yet another journal, but I seriously intend to keep this one haha... I think I said that the last couple times too? After reading into intermittent fasting and the health/recomp benefits it supposedly provides I will give it a shot. My goal is to maintain or increase strength while improving body composition, but isn't that everyones goal?

    The plan...
    fast 16-18 hours a day followed by 6-8 hours of feeding

    Havent worked the kinks... but calories will be at/slightly below/slightly above maintenance on workout days... (supposed to be above) while non-wo days where I will perform cardio or do crossfit will be 50-60% maintenance.

    Will do 3x full body weight training sessions of compound movements a week.
    Problems encountered will be a bum shoulder which will have to be worked around. (meaning no bench press, overheard anything, etc...)

    After yesterday and today I feel hunger is not an issue as fasting is supposed to provide a blunting effect. I actually feel more alert and less groggy than restricting calories or doing one of the other diets such as PSMF or UD2. So far so good eh?


    Flutter Kicks + Crossfit WOD
    5 rounds for time
    30 situps on glute ham machine
    25 back extensions

    5:31 rx'd

    First meal at 6:30 pm

    Crossfit @ 7:00 pm

    meal 1 - serving muscle milk light
    post wo - sammich with egg, hummus, turkey, spinach
    meal 2 - 1 cup cottage cheese, 2 tbsp almond butter, scoop of protein

    yes I didn't eat much... ~1200 calories

    Comments :

    I plan on incorporating a lot of running and swimming eventually to increase my endurance and basically work on the two. My goal of becoming a big massive beast is no more. I would like to be in the realm of 170-180 and have a good strength to weight ratio. Right now I am hovering around 190 @ 12% body fat. The reasoning behind dropping weight is to prep myself for BUD/S training which I intend to do mid/end of next year once I graduate. Once the shoulder is healed I will be doing a lot of bodyweight exercises... mostly adding in pushups and dips since I can do situps and the like still.

    I find it easier to follow and less worry of eating meals throughout the day... less to worry about if you ask me.

    Tonight is weight training.
