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?

    Just Completed Day One

    I just completed day one of the Wannabebig Routine I tonight and it only took me 30 minutes to do. If I was able to complete the workout that quickly does that mean I did not push myself hard enough? If you had to err on one side would it be too heavy vs too light when picking a weight to use?

    Also I will be doing 3x30 minutes jogging per week with this routine. I am not able to jog 30 minutes continuosly yet so I am starting out running 12-15 minutes then alternating between 2 minutes run 2 minutes walk. Good starting point? Bad starting point for cutting fat? And yes I have altered my diet.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    What was the workout and was it geared to your goals and not someone else's?

    30 minutes is rather quick, but as you add weight to the bar you'll need to rest longer between sets. I would err on the side of caution and use lighter weight before going heavy. Use common sense and make sure your form is correct before adding tons of weight to the bar. As far as the cardio is concerned, I think that is a great starting point. Instead of 30 minutes of straight jogging, you should try HIIT training. I don't have any good links off hand, but search around a bit and you should find something useful.

    I did the Wannabebig Training Routine I. Since it is an "off the shelf" workout it was not "tailored" to my goals or anyone elses for that matter.

    I just want to make sure I am working out hard enough. I think I will push it a bit harder next time and see what happens.

    Here is the workout and the weights I used:

    BB Bench: 2x8 @135lbs
    Chin ups: Had to use the machine to help. I used an overhand grip and had the resistence at 35.5lbs for 2x8 (definitely do better than that)
    BB Row: 2x8 @ 65lbs (felt strong enough to do a bit better than this also)
    Low Incline DB Bench: 2x8 @ 45lb DBs
    Deadlifts:
    Dips: No resistence, need a weight belt or something to add wieght with
    Shrugs: 195 on Smith Machine 1x10 (overdid it a bit with that)
