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?

    Back, sort-of

    new town, new house, new job. settled in and just got my equipment set back up. going to have to ease into it, this week starting a different schedule but will try to continue with the same westside-ish routine. was going to do the 5/3/1 thing but I was making good gains before so no use changing.

    new job is much more demanding, been putting in 10 hour days and can only workout after 8pm...we'll see how I hold up. Also will be getting my diet in check, too much beer and sugar over the holidays. on another note I'm down to 200lbs, I peaked at 210lb 4 months ago.

    Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year bud, good to hear you'll be getting back into it. 5/3/1 three days a week sounds like it would be good for your busy schedule right now.

    consistently becaus it's obviously something you love.

    Haha..little man taking an interest early on! I like it!!!!

    I have yet to cruise through the entire journey here but I will try and get some history...I am liking those floor presses from a few days ago! I fell in love with them recently and cant wait to get them in the mix again. Looking good bud.
