The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Good luck with the program. At your age just learn as much as you can around here. Plenty of good diet articles to help you with your food choices too.

    Don't worry about supplements. Just train smart and eat quality foods. A few of my old high school friends wouldn't even lift if they didn't have protein powder. Once you have a solid diet and some time in the gym supplements can help out but don't mean everything.

    Thank you what did you think of my first day? Do you think the tricep pushups was a good idea, or should i try something eles?

    Dead Lifts
    145 6 reps
    200 6 reps fail
    my form on this was not good i could not get a feel of it it hurt way to bad so i changed to romains now remember i did 200 on regular dead lifts so these were kind of weak.

    60 6 reps
    75 6 reps +2+2+2
    next time i am going to lower it a tad i could not feel my muscels being worked i kind of used my momentium to lift it.

    Why switch away from the full deadlift? Just drop the weight to an appropriate weight and focus on your form. I'm not downplaying the romanian dl by any means but when your back feels better, i'm just saying to give them another shot.

    Good efforts, proper form is a very important part of lifting so make sure you get the lifts down before pushing near failure or you will end up with an injury.

    The reson i switched is beacuse my regular dead Lift is not as strong as it used to be and i think the romian dead is a little harder which i why i like it so much.

    Alternate between them and see where it gets you. Both have great advantages.

    At least you don't have to walk around school all day with a backpack on climbing up and down stairs all day hah, keep up the work man. When season comes around you'll notice your progress when you run through other teams!

    Day A

    I did this workout with my football team so no calf work but i worked my biceps with the bench.
    Over head squat
    45x5
    85x5
    105x5
    this honestly is one of the hardest squats you will ever do! You have to have perfect form and you cant jump the weight to quick. If you go over i hiely suggest a spottter behind u beacuse you can fall easily if you have crappy form.

    Front squats
    45x5
    90x5
    125x5
    155x5 PR
    I love doing my workouts with my team i feel so much better and i am more confident to! Me and my friends have weight offs as who can add the most weight and do the set of 5. i Won!

    Romian Dead Lift
    45x5
    135x5
    160x5
    185x5 PR

    Bench Press
    45x5
    90x5
    135x5
    155x5
    165x3PR
    Yes i no i did not finish the 165 but it was heavy as hell! I refuse to lose to my friends/ teamates beacuse it shows weakness. I beat him by a landslide! He got 145x5 and he tried 165 and got 0 reps. He also ways 30 more pounds than me!

    Pullups
    x8
    x5
    x3
    I did these for my biceps to so i belive I had a great workout. I have practice later today 5-8 ughhh but i cant wait!
