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?

    The Shank Mag

    Well, I think its time for me to keep a journal.. I keep a lil paper log book with me at the gym, but I wanna start poting it online, jsut for something to do

    Anyway, heres my current stats...

    21 years old
    209lbs
    6'2"
    13% bf
    Currenty doing a clean bulk..


    Goals:
    225lbs by Christmas (this was a long term goal, but I dunno if I am quite gonna make it or not)

    After I hit 225, cut down to around 8%bf

    I want to compete in about a year, so I'm just taking it slow, and making sure to do everything right..



    OK, so far today , I have managed to roll out of bed, and eat.. thats about it..

    Breakfast: 5 egg whites, 3 slices cheese, 1 slice lean ham, 1.5 cups oatmeal with whey mixed in, 1.5 litres water.

    Heading to the gym here shortly, today is shoulders/abs and maybe 30 mins fo cardio after if I feel like it (I try to do 30 min sessions of cardio about 2x a week just to keep things in check)

    After that, I have to come home and read my ass off, two tests this week ;-(
    Let me get this straight...

    Good luck getting to 225 man. I am shooting for the same things over the next 3-6 months. With my abs still visible of course. Lets get to 225 together.

    Sounds good bro! I think if I make it to 225 by christmas (as was the original plan) my abs would disappear, so i think I am going to have to take a while longer, maybe like you said, about 3 months!

    Agreed. Gaining weight too fast doesnt give your body enough time to gain quality muscle---rather it puts on a combination of fat and muscle. Which is NOT what I want at all. I mean a little bit of fat is okay because you cant avoid that. But I wont settle for a gut and no abs visible at all.

    Good luck man. Try gradually increasing your weights in the gym every single week. Gradual progression.

    tuttut As you noted with it's going to be hard to get to 225 by skipping meals.

    At any rate, good luck with your bulk.

    Yeah, I know, i am usually not one to miss meals at all, but today, I missed my bus home from campus for my lunch break, which meant that I had to choose betweene eating fast food on campus, or not eating at all.. (we don't have any decent fast food, its basically either pizza, chinese or meat ont eh street, amoung a few other crapholes) Soooo, i chose to jsut skip it alltogether..

    A lil update as well.. after the gym tonite, i came home and ate three chicken thighs and the protein shake which I mentioned earlier. I also had one honey oat muffin.

    And now, I'm goin to bed

    nite!

    This morning, I actually woke up before my alarm went off.. Got to bed at a good hour, after reading all nite and watching a few episodes of south park. Near froze my balls off because the heat isn't working in my appartment yet (got to about -3 celcius last night, so about 24 or 25 farenheit) , and my room mate was banging on my wall at 10:30pm for me to turn off my music, so i decided, " ahh, I'll just watch some southpark, and hit the sack"

    I'l have to post the full story of the knobs I got stuck with this year in "residence" (basically a 33 story regular appt building thats owned by the University, not a dorm, so I have three room mates......) I guess you can see that one fo them thinks I need to be shuttin my life off at 10:30 because he needs to go to sleep...

    Anyway, got up this morning, jogged to the gym (1km or so) biked for 40mins and ran for 20 on a treadmill, then jogged home again. I like to do cardio a few times a week to keep things in check, and keep myself in shape, even while bulking (don't wanna get all fat and nasty)

    Came home..

    breakfast:
    6 egg whites,
    1 slice ham
    2 muffins (low fat banana that I made)
    1.5 litres water
    vitamins
    3 slices cheese mixed into the eggs

    Mid morning:
    1.2 MRP shake
    1 honey oat muffin (which, again, i made, I'm so proud of my baking skilz, )

    Lunch (now)
    1 chicken breast
    1.5 cups rice
    2 litres water

    And that brings us to now..

    Thoughts: I think tonite i am going to put on some music really loud, then leave and lock the door to my bedroom.... muhahahahaha

    Feeling: feeling great this morning. I always feel soo much better when i get up and jog in the AM, it really wakes me up, I also finally got more American Crew shave cream and astringent, so it feels nice to be poperly groomed again after a few weeks.. no more Gilette for me!

    Wed, Nov 6, 2002

    had two tests today.. Got up about about 6:40 and was at the gym shortly before 7am to do some cardio while reading notes.. banged off a full hour of cardio, read my notes, and aced both tests!

    Meals:
    breakfast: 4 egg whites, 3 slices cheese, 2 litres water, 3 cups oatmeal, 1 serving whey, vitamins

    mid morning: 1/2 MRP, water

    Lunch: 2 cans tuna, vitamin C

    Mid aft: 1/2 MRP, water

    Dinner: 4 cups pasta with home made sauce, 6oz steak

    Post workout: 3 servings whey, 50g malt. 10g glutamine, 10g creatine, vitamins

    Evening meal:
    1 can tuna, 2 slices oat bread, water

    snack : 2 cookies



    Lifts: Today was biceps/back, unfortunately, I ran out fo time, as I didn't make it to the gym to lift until 9pm.. I am heading back in the AM to finish back..

    incline db curls: 55x10 65x8 55x8 (last set supersetted with 40lb curls to failure)

    standing bb curls: 90x10 130x8 130x8

    one hand cable curls: 4 sets per arm

    bench concentration curls: 40x8 50x8 50x6

    hammer curls: 50x8 70x7 60x7


    Thoughts: The most annoying of my roomies (the one who pounds on my wall at like 10pm if I still have music on) has mysteriously dissappeared for the last two days without a trace... ever since the day I said he was last pounding on ym wall, I haven't seen him at all... Oh well... Oh, and we're getting 15cm (about 7") of snow tonite, and its colder than a nuns c*nt out!

    Feeling: Good, muscles are feeling very hard today. My tests were both very good, nailed a solid 100% on one, and the other one, i may have gotten 1 question wrong, but I'm not sure... No classes till 5:30pm tomorrow, so gym in AM, and again later on at night, going to tan tomorrow, and generally chill!

    yeah, it is alot fo sets for chest, but as I kept going, I was still feeling good, so i decide to add a few more sets.. normally I don't do flat db flyes or cable crossovers at all.. now and then I'll replace one of the other movements with them to mix it up, but rarely all at the same time

    Breakfast:
    4 egg whites, 2 yolks, 1 slie ham, 2 cups oatmeal, vitamins, 2 litres water

    mid morning:
    1/2 MRP, water

    Lunch: turkey wrap with lettuce, tomato, salt, pepper, 1 litre water, apple

    mid aft:
    1/2 MRP


    Post workout:
    2 servings optimum chocolate, 500ml milk, 50g malt, 10g creatine, 10g glutamine

    dinner:
    600g ground chicken, 2 cups broccoli, 1 serving whey, water

    later tonite I'll have some eggs or another shake before I head out..


    Training:

    Shoulders:

    shoulder db press, 55x10, 75x7, 70x6 (and I managed to fall off balance on the 6th of the last rep)
    lateral raises: 30x7 35x8 35x6 plus one 1/2 rep

    Feeling: solid, but mad after being at the gym and witnessing various things.. left shoulder is a bit sore, I think I might have done something minor to it when i fell off balance during o/h press, guess we'll see

    Thoughts: got a hair cut today, and the girl at the hair place was hott! Going to go out tonite, but must not drink! Pick up? time will tell :-) lots of work to do this weekend (I have four days off due to holiday monday, and I have no class on tuesday, nice!)

    OK, its about 11pm, and I am all pimped out, ready to rock :-)

    heading to pacifico tonite, a dance bar, usually a bit classier than some spots, lots of hot gurls, not too many guys that take care fo themselves... sounds like an equation for success, hehe

    Going to belnd up another shake here in a second consisting of..

    3 scoops optimum chocolate
    50g malt
    600ml milk
    1 banana
    4 ice cubes


    Hope I have a good nite, and hope everyone else here has a good nite too

    ciao!

    Well, last night was a success ;-) always a good time. Managed to only consume one gin and tonic for the night, however, I didn't get home until 4am, didn't get to sleep till after that.. soo... its now 2:30pm, and I'm just rolling out of bed....

    Anyway, heres my first meal..

    breakfast:
    6 egg whites, 3 slices cheese, 2 slice oat bread, 2 litres water, 1 thin slice ham

    Thoughts: bored, but have alot of work to do today

    Feeling: like I always do as soon as I wake up... shoulder is stilla tad sore... toying with the idea of taking the rest of the weekend off to let it heal up a bit.. just do some cardio instead maybe??

    Shoulder is still "feeling" it a bit.. its not pain, jsut stiff, i think I am gonan go to the gym this afternoon and see about stretching it out with some low weights... as well as a buit of cardio. Went out last night with the St Francis Xavier University hockey team, a couple of my cousins whom are also in school down here, and a bunch of other people.. 'twas a good time overall, The Dome is a coplete meat market, which is always a fun time ;-) got some calls to make now anyway...


    OK, so i got up today, breakfast was..

    4 egg whites, 3 slices cheese, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 2 slices oat bread

    mid mroning: 1/2 MRP w milk, water, vitamins

    Lunch: 2 chicken breasts, 2 cups rice, water

    and that brings us to now.. I am about to go blend up a nice banana shake, and head to the gym, I have to start brainstorming ideas for an essay for my german class, so I figure a good brisk run and some training should take care of thought time!

    Has anyone here ever read the novella Death In Venice by Thomas Mann?? What were your thoughts on it??

    Meals:

    Mid aft: 1/2 MRP
    Dinner: 2l water, 4 cups pasta

    Now: 2 scoops whey, milk, glutamine, creatine, vitamins

    No training today, I am still nursing at my shoulder a bit... just going to take it day by day, the last thing I need to do is really mess it up, and be out for a few months or something. Went for a run today (35mins) and did abs and around 150 decline/flat pushups, but that was it...

    heading out yet again tonite, long weekend, so we're taking advantage of it! Tonite is a bar called The Palace.. not drinking, jsut chillin.. should be fun!

    Well, I woke up late this morning, and missed my bus to class, so here I sit. Figured it'd be a good time to update my journal, ben a bit behind for about a week or so now..

    Anyway, training over the last week has been good, I've been getting solid burns all through, which is nice Tonight will be chest, I'd go now, but I have to find my way to class at some point, as I have an economics project on "internalizing externalities" due today, so i gotta go fire it off..

    Diet has been super clean, I've been avoiding any forms of crap for the last week, just because I was starting to stray a bit, and was feeling sluggish because of this. So, I'm back to a ncie super clean diet, about 250-300g protein/day, 300-500g carbs, and about two gallons of water.

    Anyway, I'm in the process of changing all my webpages over, my current server has been down lately about 80% of the time, and its pissin me off.. however, I just got confirmation that everything is now set with a new one!

    Room mate is still getting on my nerves, last night, he asked me to turn down music and waht not at 10pm.. I mean, come on, this dude is a grown man, he's 25 years old, and a maters student, you'd think he could deal with going to bed after 10pm by now...... if it was realistic (ie. he was asking me at 2am to turn it down) I wouldn't have a problem, but this is ridiculous!

    Booked my flight home too for the 14th of Dec for X-Mas.. going straight to London from Toronto to see some of my mates, then home to Belleville around the 18th to do the family thing!

    Well, I'm out, I'll post todays chest workout later and diet...

    so far today..

    Meal one:
    6 egg whites
    2 litres water
    2 cups oatmeal
    1 scoop optimum chocolate
    vitamins

    ciao

    OK, so classes are all over, and we are into the exam period, which means two things, more stress, and more flexible gym schedule :-) I've been running short two a day training (AM and PM) for the last week, and it seems to be working really well! I'm feeling good, etc. Basically, I've just been taking that days muscle groups, and splitting them between two sessions of about 30 mins each.

    diet over the past couple weeks has been clean, with the odd cheat thrown in. My cheats 9about one a week) have mainly consisted of completely empty calories like ritz crackers and peanut butter cookies ;-) Which is all good, cause I don't even allow myself to cheat at all very often, so I may as wek go all out when I do!

    Today is shoulders, just got in from a quick 30 mins, and I'll head baack tonite around 9 for another session to cap off the night.
