The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    One man's quest to be strong.

    Hey guys, I finally decided to start posting a workout log so you can critique, comment, and check out my progress.

    I just started Starting Strength this past Sunday (March 22nd). And boy is it ever fun!

    I'm 5'10", and approx. 205lbs, give or take a few. I don't know my exact bf%, but if I was to guess, I'd say it's close to 20%.

    My squats and bench (with dumbbells) are approx. the same, so I'm hoping SS will change that. I had a knee injury when I while playing hockey, this had quite the affect on me. On top of that, I popped a tendon in my ankle about a year ago. This prevented me from going to the gym for about 6 months. My squat numbers are really low, and I really need to bring it back up.

    Here's my numbers so far:

    March 22nd

    Squats
    Warm up:
    2x5x45lbs
    1x5x95lbs
    1x3x115lbs
    1x2x135lbs
    Working Set:
    3x5x160lbs

    Bench (w/dumbbells)
    Warm up:
    2x5 w/25s
    1x5 w/35s
    1x3 w/45s
    1x2 w/60s
    Working Set:
    3x5 w/80s

    Deadlift
    Warm up:
    2x5x135lbs
    1x5x185lbs
    1x3x225lbs
    1x2x275lbs
    Working Set:
    1x3x315lbs I blotched this one up, I know it's supposed to be 1x5, but I was just spent, I'll try it again this week.
