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?

    Next week I am going to switch it up a bit and get on my schedule for the summer.

    My routine is going to look like this:

    Tuesday-ME
    Wednesday-Deadlift/back support/bi's
    Thursday-Off
    Friday-DE/Shoulders
    Saturday-Legs

    I want to try and throw some calf work in twice a week 1 day being my legs. I am also going to start throwing 30 min. cardio sessions after every workout excluding my ME days.

    And lastly Abs every 2 days

    I am stuck in between what my goals are right now. I just keep lifting and eating. I have been on a gradually increasing bulk I guess for the past couple of years, when I really got serious into lifting. 3 years ago I was 180 lbs. at almost 6'1". Today I am about 215, and was up to 235 last summer but a fat****.

    And no I am not a musician why do you ask? lol

    Looking strong in here man. Super Rack pulls!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    11 not 10 is like a famous qoute from a movie. Its a pretty big thing with guitar players. Their amps go to 11 not 10 on the volume. Thought that may be what your username was all about.

    Naw my reasoning for using 11not10 goes back a while actually, i'll tell you what its all about. In high school I was a captain on my football team and really was the voice when it came to weight training. I busted my ass to get kids in the weightroom, unfortunatly people were not as motivated as some of us. So when we started getting good numbers in the weightroom we put an 11 not 10 philosophy in effect meaning when we did sets we pushed that extra rep. For isntance if we were doing sets of 10 our goal would be to push out an extra rep with your partner (to give it your all). Sadly the numbers diminished in the weightroom that was at one time one of the better small town football teams in the area. We were lucky to get 15-20 kids a day.

    So there you have it, my name 11not10 interesting though I did not realize that about the movie and didn't think of guitarists reving their amps to 11 not 10! lol

    It's a shame man, its this god damn internet and video games that are taking these kids lives over. I am not being hipocritical at all because i am guilty at times, but to me sports football especially should be something every athlete wants to be a part of and succeed to their full potential.

    4/23 DE bench/shoulders

    DE Bench and Shoulders

    DE Bench
    Barxwhatever
    135x12
    225x10
    235x10
    245x10
    275x7

    Standing DB Press
    3x8

    Incline Bench
    3x8

    DB Flies
    3x8

    Front raises
    3x8

    Face pulls
    3x10

    Wheelbarrow shrugs
    3x12

    Switching my DE bench up for a while, the speed **** isn't doing anything for me. I have had the best results maximizing my raw bench by sticking to 4x8-12 rep DE days. I plan on picking back up on speed work when I get home from school and can use bands and chains at my gym. But for now I will stick to the basic high rep work.
