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?

    TH warm up
    Pullovers


    DB Bench
    15,3,3x26's (58'2)

    Chest stretch: 90secondsx14's (30's)

    V-squat machine shoulder press
    Not sure what the "sled" weighs
    5,3,3x30kg (65lbs)

    Shoulder stretch: 70 seconds

    Machine Dips
    20,6,5x49kg (110lbs)

    Tricep stretch: 90secondsx16's (35's)

    NG Pulldowns
    9,4,2x77kg (170lbs)

    Meadows Rows
    12x40kg (90lbs)

    Lat stretch: 90secondsxsmall band

    Great session. The shoulder press on the squat machine was amazing. I overestimated strength so the reps were a little low, but the pump in my shoulders was good.

    Going to have a huge carb load again. I got a loaf of white bread, kid's cereal, square bars, various candy. Aiming for 700-800 grams of carbs as the coming 2 days will be ultra low carb again.

    BW squats
    TKE's
    Leg swings


    Incline DB Curls
    16,5,4x9's (20's)

    One arm reverse cable curl
    25x10kg (22lbs), each side

    Bicep stretch: 90 seconds

    V-Squat machine calf raises
    12x45kg (100lbs)

    HS Kneeling leg curls
    20,8,6x35kg (75lbs), right side
    22,9,7x35kg (75lbs), left side

    Squat
    8x125kg (275lbs)
    12x60kg (135lbs) <- 2.5lb plates under heels

    Quad stretch: 60 seconds

    Ham stretch: 60 seconds, each leg

    Started off relatively easy on the squats. The higher reps will take a little to get used to again. I went really light on the second set, as i used a close stance with plates under my heels, something i have never done before. It felt ok, will have to try next time with more weight.

    Probably the most successful diet I ever went on was carb cycling. Not sure why it works, but it did... will probably do it again soon.

    I have done carb cycling before and it gave me the best results so far when i was bulking. I have only used CBL to reduce bodyfat but am very happy with it so far. Strength gains on the other hand have been limited, however im not sure if that was the diet or the different training program.

    Thanks! The best would be to buy the book, as it has all the details. However, to get a good idea you can read the following:

    Standing Cable Crunch
    3x12x45kg (100lbs)

    I wanted to go heavier on these and actually get some proper work in but my abs kept cramping really bad. After three sets i decided to leave it at that.

    TH Warm up

    LT: Last time
    TT: This time


    DB Incline
    LT: 17,4,1x26's (58's)
    TT: 13,3,1x30's (65's)

    Chest stretch: 50secondsx16's (35's)

    Upright Row
    LT: 23,10,7x30kg (65lbs)
    TT: 15,6,5x40kg (90lbs)

    Shoulder stretch: 50seconds

    Dead Skulls
    LT: 15,6,4x20kg (45lbs)
    TT: 17,6,4x22kg (48lbs)

    Tricep stretch: 90secondsx20's (45's)

    Wide Grip Pulldowns
    LT: N/A
    TT: 9,5,4x75kg (165lbs)

    Sumo Rack pulls
    LT: 8x180kg (395lbs), 12x160kg (350lbs)
    TT: 9x195kg (430lbs), 12x170kg (375lbs)

    Didnt get a lot of sleep last night and the night before so was feeling a little tired. I got to work from home though which meant that the 90 mins i normally spend travelling to work were now spent in bed.

    Strength seems to come back/go up quickly on most exercises. I switched the rack chins because i dont have a training partner and doing them weighted by myself seems almost impossible.

    Going to try and make my backload tonight even bigger than the last couple. I have been reading on the DH forums that people seem to have more success (more muscle gained, more fat dropped) when going pretty wild on the backloads.
    Something i also need to think about is the gap between my last backload on Saturday and my training on Tuesday. I actually feel pretty flat by Tuesday and getting a pump is also more difficult. Might have to start having a small backload (about 100 grams of carbs) on Monday night.

    Oreo's, here i come.

    Just thought i would post today's food to give a clearer picture of what im doing:

    "Meal 1" (its not really a meal, but anyways): 1 regular coffee, 1 coffee with 1 TBSP Coconut oil and 10 grams Whey Iso.
    Meal 2: 3 hardboiled eggs, 40 grams of almonds
    Meal 3: 500 grams of beef, mushrooms and onions sauteed in butter
    Pre-workout: 1 coffee with 1 TBSP Coconut oil
    Intra-workout: water, nothing added
    Post-workout: 3 scoops Pepto Pro, 3 scoops Dextrose, 1 scoop Whey Iso, 1 scoop Micellar Casein, 5 grams Leucine, 5 grams Creatine mono
    Meal 4: 1.5 cups of white rice, 200-300 grams of chicken
    Meal 5 (extended meal until bed time) so far:
    Large bowl (about 100-150 grams) coco pops with low fat milk
    8 chocolate covered oreo's
    5 regular oreos
    4 square bars
    100-150 grams of candy (mostly cola flavoured gummis)

    Other supplements: about 10 caps of Now Food Fish oil, 5000 UI Vitamin D

    I also have Controlled Labs Orange Triad and Iforce Nutrition Intimidate (NMDA) but im not using it at the moment as i seemed to have an allergic reaction to either one. Not sure yet which, but im guessing the Orange Triad.

    Feeling pretty damn full and sweating my ass off at the moment. Not completely sure what the macro's are, but i should hit around 600-700 grams of carbs and a little over 200 grams of protein.

    The way i look tomorrow will determine if this was a good day or not and how i will approach the coming days.
