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?

    Nice strength man, keep it up. Really would like to see you progress. Squats I am not all that strong on either, but I am decent I guess. My goal is 405 for 4, as of yesterday I got 355 for 9.5.

    I know that people say this all the time, but I'll add a question in with it...why do you think it is that I could easily do 6-8 reps of squats with 370lb 4 years ago, and now I can't? The only thing I can think of is that it's related to the extra weight that I've gained. I was about 170lbs then. Now I'm right around 200lbs.

    Depends dude. How did you used to do them? With spotters or what? I know my squat strength flew up when I was training with my entire football team back my sophmore year. I was going nuts, I didnt have to worry about getting injured, etc. They were all pushing me like crazy.

    That's true. I guess peers make a difference. I was running late this morning. I didn't get to eat any eggs. I had a bagel with peanut butter, some Ripped Fuel, and I'm going to get a protein shake right....now!

    Meals today look really good man. Realy like your food choices. Are you eating a multi-grain bagel or nah? I eat 1/2 a bagel every morning with some low-fat cream cheese and a Myoplex MRP. Great breakfast, tastes good as hell and its full of nutrients. Good luck with your workout tonight.

    I appreciate it. I'm glad you recommended that I start the online journal. I think it'll help me keep from cheating on the diet. My one problem is that I stay SO FULL. I feel bloated all the time. But I guess I'll adjust.

    Well, hopefully my dedication will stay strong on the journal as well as in the gym. Like I said before, I'm obsessed right now. The people at work give me a hard time, because of the diet and scrapped routines lying all over. But they just don't understand. It's a way of life for me now.

    Weights for 4/24/02
    I want to point out that I'm doing a completely different routine than I have been, so almost all of these weights could be higher. I'm still trying to figure out exactly where to start. In any case...

    Deadlifts: 195, 215, 245, 265
    Barbell Rows: 205, 225, 245, 255
    Pulley Rows: 180, 200, 220, 250
    Chins: 4 sets of 10 (Just body weight)
    One Arm DB Rows: 70, 75, 80, 85 (My back was completely exhasted at this point)
    Barbell Curls: 95, 105, 115,115
    Incline DB Curls: 35s, 40s, 45s, 45s
    Preacher Curls: 65, 65, 65, 65 (Had to go light, because the tendon in my left forearm was on fire due to an old injury.)

    Awesome strength especially in these 3 exercises man. Really looking good bro. Row strength is awesome. Are you doing an underhand or an overhand grip? Cambered-bar? Barbell curl strength is awesome too.

    On bent over rows, I use an overhand grip. Deads=mixed grip. Deads will be heavier next week for sure. Kinda' sucked yesterday. Just being safe. I use a straight bar for the deads and barbell rows. Pulley rows I use one of the "V" shaped grips. The only cambered bar exercise I do is preacher curls. Pulley rows will definitely be up next week, too.

    Oh, I ended up having Tuna Salad with 8 boiled egg whites last night instead of the grilled fish. Not as good, but much quicker.
