The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Phal's Jumpstart.

    I've not been as committed to my desire to lean out, and over the last two months I have added some fat back onto my frame. I'm going to post my workouts and my daily nutritional values here to help with accountability.

    Here's my latest fat picture (11/7/2010):



    Here's where I'd like to get back to (with more bulk):

    I've been slacking during winter and have put on way too much extra weight (up to 274). First real day lifting was yesterday, I started light with the basic stronglifts program:

    5x5x135-Squat (starting light)
    5x5x130-Dumbbell Bench Press
    5x5x65-Bent Over Dumbbell Row
    2x2x345-Deadlift (extra)

    Thanks for the 'welcome back' Mark and SC.

    Today is recovery, but I've walked a few miles while on shift. I'll post nutritional log when I return home.

    Today's workout:

    5x5x140-Squat
    5x5x135-Dumbbell Bench Press
    5x5x70-Bent Over Dumbbell Row

    Yard work was an endeavor, 1.5 acres of grass,weeds, vineyard (standard push mower) too, so I figure a solid 2 hours of fairly intense labor before my session.

    Thank you SC.

    Today was a long shift but we took and hour break and played some 2 on 2 basketball (was a good workout). It's an off day but I felt decent upon returning home, warmed up with some dumbell romanians the proceeded to do some heavier dls (getting a little closer to what I was repping):

    2x3x320-dls

    I had a cheat day yesterday (took a woman out on the town), guessing over 3600 calories easily. Tonight will be a full session and relatively clean nutritionally. I did get out and walk 11 holes at the ridge today (it felt good-I carry my bag).




    Par 3 170 yards, stuck it with a 7 iron, screwed up my put and got a par.





    New black towel, and someone wanted ankle pics:

    I've not been dedicated and I'm getting fat again. I lift twice a week at moderate intensity and my diet is out of control. I'm gaining weight in my arms again. I can still pull weight but I need to drop 30 pounds. At the moment I'm 6'6" 272. I need to drop down to 240. I know that the only way I can do it is to track nutritional intake every day and curtail the alcohol. They're both goddamn difficult, starting again today.

    i know the pics are old, but I wanna go golfing now, it looks real relaxing.

    keep up the hard work. i think it's pretty easy to get back into diet and lifting if you had previously been pushing either or pretty hard for awhile.

    Thanks for the reply super, it's been a good and bad four months. I want to golf but it's frozen. I still lift sporadically, but it doesn't help much since my diet is shit and I'm still drinking. I made a 2012 resolution to go sober again (I went 19 months and that's how I got my big fat ass back in shape, along with the lifting and clean diet). The gf is a runner and thin so I can't be a walrus this summer.

    Thanks Chase, Happy New Year to you as well.

    I'll record nutrition today, and I have a session when I return home from work.
