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?

    Starting from scratch... on the road to becoming an elite warrior (SEAL)

    So... as some may know I was out due to injury for some time, but I am back at it in full force. My shoulders are almost literally pain free and have full function once again. My hamstring is back to normal and I am just doing fine and dandy. As of today I weighed in at ~195 pounds after a 10 day fiasco vacation this past week and a half. My goal is to make it back down to 180 for various reasons that is more suited towards my goal at an endurance weenie for when I leave for BUD/S around this time next year. Currently I am logging about 20 miles of running/jogging a week and plan on increasing that to who knows... I've also been working on my combat side stroke in the pool, but could use a lot more work in the water. Also with the help of a bodybugg (just to play around with it) I will monitor my calorie expenditure +/- ~10% accuracy (supposedly) therefor I will use the # minus 10% as a more true figure.

    Burned ~3550 (3200)

    Totals: 2,228 79g fat / 165g carbs / 221g protein

    ~1000 calories

    - Definitely under ate today... despite trying to get my weight down I am in no hurry and would be happy with half a pound a week.


    Currently doing a version of SS/5x5 on top of my endurance work

    Main highlights

    Squat - ATG




    CS Row



    3 sets

    - everything was fairly easy and I use the slowest/strictest form possible... I don't think I can sustain another injury and be ready in time.


    ~60 minutes incline walking
    5.0 incline / 4.0 mph

    light stretching
