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?

    Ah i see, i believe he may be over the top for me as well, i rarely do cardio now and my hockey games kill me, but i'm in too deep now, i'm gonna ride the bull out. Besides the people who've done this routine swear by it.

    I decided to bench on sunday over sat for some extra rest, i ended up going out sat and getting wasted, was hung over all day and night sunday. I'm gonna get both my bench in and my squat in today, about to go down for the bench and rest about an hour then hit the squats, i'll be posting shortly.


    EDIT: still managed to play hockey yesterday and again last night, gotta sweat that hangover out.

    Okay just completed my Bench session for the day,

    Warmups:

    Bar x 50
    135 x 15

    Work Sets:

    215 x 3/x3/x3/x3/x3

    CGBP:

    165 x 12/x12/x12


    In about half an hour i'll be back down in the dungeon to squat, i'll be attempting 285 x 4 for a few sets, that'll be 20 lbs heavier than anything i've squatted in over a year and a half. Even before the injury i was always afraid to fail on the squats and i never went all out, if the weight felt heavy i wouldn't go deep enough in fear of dumping, i have some pretty heavy duty rails on my rack so i think i'm over that fear, we'll find out in about 30 mins.

    I've decided to step my log up, including daily fat/protein/carbs/cals intakes, as well as time/distance/cals burned (tredmill reads) from my cardio sessions.


    I was volunteering today so my day was pretty busy, ended up eating a lot less than i would have hoped to.

    Cals, 1,458 G/ Fat 38 G/ Carbs 140 G/ Protein 149 G

    All stats measured through http://www.fitday.com/ , it's actually a neat little program, you can custom add foods and stuff like that.

    With these numbers daily, would that be considered a lean bulk diet? thats what i'm going for.

    I am by no means an expert but you are considered to be bulking for the most part with cals equal to 2820, which is your present weight 188 x 15. This puts you short by 310 calories, but otherwise it looks real fine.

    i guess thats where i want to be, the diet is pretty clean, all of my carbs mostly coming by oats. Fats are coming via flax & for steak.

    Work is absolutely killing my diet, I'm still eating extremely lean, and good. My cal count is just so damn low because i'm not able to eat every 2 hours like i do on my days off.

    3/12/09

    1,463 cals 19.4 g fat / 132.8 g carbs / 192.4 g protein


    At this diet rate would i lose muscle mass? would the protein intake make up for the low cals?

    I know, 2 years ago when i was heavy into lifting, i was 220 10% eating 3-4k cals a day, i'm aiming for 2800 right now but its really tough with work, i'm a police officer so i really don't have time to eat like i need to, basically i wake up at 630 with my son, and eat around 1000-1200 cals from 7am till 230 pm then i have to go to work, where i manage 200-400 the rest of the day, its pretty damn tough. I'm not even trying to cut, i'm at like 185 right now, lightest i've been since i was like 17 lol.
