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?

    Workout - February 17, 2009

    I was previously logging my workouts under a different thread, but as of today I'm going to start logging them here. I figure that there are other people with the same goals that can provide tips and even motivation!

    Workout - February 17, 2009

    Wide Stance Barbell Squat
    135x5, 165x5, 185x5, 225x5, 245x3, 265x3

    Sumo Stance Deadlift
    225x5, 315x5, 405x8

    Shrugs
    4 x 10 @ 225, 1 x 20 @ 225

    Leg Curls (Hamstring)
    4 Sets x 10

    All in all a pretty good workout today. Wasn't even planning on going heavy on deadlift, or deadlifting at all that matter. Well, just screwing around managed to pull 405 for 8 which I've never done before. Mark said the reps looked perfect, so cant complain. We both seem to be making PRs non-stop and having awesome workouts. I have to say, if it weren't for Mark I would still be doing beach body workouts so thanks!

Also going to be doing volume squat to try to pack on that last bit of weight.

    Not a bad workout considering the weekend I had. Had drill in Madison for the Marines. Saturday was nice, got some trigger time, but Sunday was miserable. Stood outside in the freezing rain for 3 hours running the new Combat Fitness Test. So all things considered, went in their with a clear mind and visions of moving big weight - hit a 10 pound PR on my shirt bench, so pretty happy with that!

    Well, I've seen a couple different videos on youtube of people doing them. However, my buddy and I are doing it the way we saw on Westside Barbell, so I'm pretty sure they are correct!

    Thanks for reading the log!

    Workout - March 10, 2009

    Deadlift
    -Not worth recording- Haven't taken a week off of dead in months, so not surprised at how today went. Been having quite a bit of hip pain, so going to try stretching it out some different ways...we'll see how it ends up.

    Shrugs
    135x20, 225x20, 315x12, 315x8, 315x12, 315x15, 225x35, 225x40

    Hamstring Curls
    3 Sets x 15, 1 Set x 25

    Chin-Ups
    4 Sets x 10

    Not really sweating todays workout. I know the weight I've moved before, so probably just a little tired. Tomorrow is a day off, Thursday is dynamic bench and Friday is Squat day.
