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?

    I like the recent sessions man. Looks like you're coming along nicely with the MMA. Seems like you are mostly into the boxing aspect of it right now though huh? That's my favorite too, but my MMA class doesn't give us the choice on what to learn each day. It's always something different and up to the instructors (I kinda like it that way though because it forces me to learn all the different styles of fighting). Good video too. I should focus more on rotational abdominal work myself.

    thanks man! I dont know which i disciplines are my favorites yet. I like boxing and want to definitely make it one of my strong points as many fighters are week in that area. This week im gonna be doing mostly ground work, bjj and grappling. I want to get in some takedown work so maybe ill go to open mats tomorrow with some guys also. I like the striking and takedown stuff a lot. Its more violent than ground stuff

    thanks bud! today was day one of three and i did fairly well i think on my chem and history portions. Its looking good for no school tomorrow. Our schools close if its below zero with wind chill and its supposed to be 3degrees in the morning and -20 to -30 degrees with wind chill. Plenty of time to hit up some mma classes and study.

    Nice work man! Glad to hear you drink Monster too. My best friend from home is a rep for them at college so I always get the hook up. I currently have 60+ in my room, so I'm always prepared for a workout.

    ok, i seen round 4-12 of malignaggi vs diaz. Malignaggi is good, fast, and a smart ass. He has a crazy style but he makes it work.

    what cost more a couple cases of monster or gas from chicago to raleigh? lol


    MMA
    1 hour boxing class-going to class now but it will most likely be sit-ups,jump rope, and sparring the whole time. Ill be focussing on my head slips and counter strikes.
    also congrats to my instructor mike corey for winning by submission in his fight thursday night.

    Haha, yeah, Paulie did a lot of clowning last night, but he looked the best I've ever seen him fight. He even hurt Diaz, which is saying something for Paulie. He needs to cut down on the clowning some, but I think it's like Lennox Lewis said, he was so in control out there that he knew he could get away with it. He's a very fast, slick boxer and Diaz had no answers for him. Good stuff, man.

    Here is the run down from yesterdays boxing class

    -jump rope
    -shadow boxing for 3*4min rounds
    -heavy bag work w/ some random kicks in the mix too
    -sit ups w/ 20lb medicine ball for a 2min round(i got roughly 150 in)
    -leg raises w/ med ball inbetween legs
    -pull ups with legs crossed behind holding 20lb ball 4x4,1x2 these are tough

    decided not to bench tonight my back is sore from the basically ME pull ups i did and everytime i laugh i can feel my abs get tight. Will get it done tomorrrow. 4 days untill xmas break! cant wait to spend my whole day the gym over break.

    weight-157(put on about 7lbs the past two months and my abs are noticable.)
    height-5'8"

    Sounds like you're really making some progress with your MMA training man. Good to see that you're really into it. Stick with it, and you'll be a monster!
