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?

    From acorn to oak tree! HTC-12 log.

    Decided to give this a blast and log my progress. Just returning from a back injury and also have a dodgy left shoulder. I'll be doing the 4 day upper/lower split.

    Stats:
    27 y/o
    6' 1"
    90kg/198lbs
    ~12% BF

    1RM RAW lifts (no belt etc)
    Squat: 170kg/375lbs
    Dead: 205kg/450lbs
    Bench: 120kg/265lbs
    Row: 105kg/230lbs
    OHP: 70kg/155lbs
    Power clean: 100kg/220lbs


    Fri 1st Oct - Upper

    Chins
    6 x BW
    6 x BW +5kg/11lbs
    6 x BW +10kg/22lbs
    6 x BW +15kg/33lbs +2+2+2

    BB Row
    6 x 40kg/88lbs
    6 x 50kg/110lbs
    6 x 60kg/132lbs
    6 x 70kg/155lbs
    6 x 80kg/176íbs
    6 x 90kg/198lbs +2+2+2
    I was tired from the chins and the final set was really tough for me.

    BB Flat Bench
    6 x 40kg/88lbs
    6 x 50kg/110lbs
    6 x 60kg/132lbs
    6 x 70kg/155lbs
    6 x 80kg/176lbs
    6 x 90kg/198lbs
    6 x 100kg/220lbs +2+2+2
    This was really hard too.

    BB OHP
    6 x 30kg/66lbs
    6 x 40kg/88lbs
    6 x 50kg/110lbs +2+2+2
    This was really tough after bench, disappointed with this one.

    Dips
    6 x BW
    6 x BW +5kg/11lbs
    6 x BW +10kg/22lbs
    6 x BW +15kg/33lbs +2+2+2
    I struggle with dips due to my shoulder, plus I was tired. Pretty shameful. I hope this one starts to shoot up.


    Sat 2nd Oct - Lower

    Squats
    6 x 40kg/88lbs
    6 x 60kg/132lbs
    6 x 80kg/176lbs
    6 x 100kg/220lbs
    6 x 120kg/265lbs +2+2+2
    I was expecting to get to 130/140kg for the 6+2+2+2. My back held out just fine so I guess that is something.

    Deads
    6 x 70kg/155lbs
    6 x 90kg/198lbs
    6 x 110kg/242lbs
    6 x 130kg/286lbs
    6 x 150kg/330lbs +2+2+2
    After squats this was hard. Usually I do squats and deads on separate days so my deads will really suffer. I might swap the order and alternate weekly.

    Calf leg press
    6 x 25kg/55lbs
    6 x 50kg/110kg
    6 x 75kg/165lbs
    6 x 100kg/220lbs
    6 x 125kg/275bls
    6 x 150kg/330lbs +2+2+2

    Preacher curl
    6 x EZ bar +10kg/22lbs
    6 x EZ bar +20kg/44lbs
    6 x EZ bar +25kg/55lbs
    6 x EZ bar +30kg/66lbs
    6 x EZ bar +35kg/77lbs +2+2+2
    I think the bar weighs 10kg/22lbs; Iíll check tonight.

    Mid pulley cable crossover
    6 x 40
    6 x 50
    6 x 60
    6 x 70 +2+2+2
    I snuck this one is as my chest is lacking.


    Tonight I have my second upper body workout. I'm feeling the effects of a cold so I'm not sure how I will perform tonight. I'll go in and work as hard as I can though.

    Squat - 140kg (killed me, can't do that again!)
    Romanian DL - 140kg (too heavy, didn't get a full set)
    Calf leg press - 200kg
    Preacher - forget... Prob same as last time
    Ab cable crunch - stack 75kg

    Missed Fri workout due to schedule

    Sat 16th Oct - Upper/Lower mix

    Deadlift - Ended up doing some heavier doubles/singles, missed 200kg, got 180kg, did my 6+2+2+2 on 140kg :/
    Bench 100kg x6 110kg +2+2+2
    Row 100kg
    Chins +15kg
    Leg press 200kg (lame, i know!)
    Rope pull downs/cable curls 60kg


    So the last few workouts have been pretty hit and miss. Hopefully I can get back on track.
