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?

    MadMan- Weak Boy's Log

    Hey all you can call me madman I won't give out my real name for political and moral reasons haha, I've decided to start this journal as a way of progressing my lifts. I've decided to start doing Starting Strength.

    Ok so background. I'm 18, 19 at the start of next year. I have been lifting for about 8 months but I started out with a bad routine. I have put on about 10kgs. About 79-80kg @ 6ft 18-20%BF. I have a hip problem and always made it an excuse to not squat or quater squat, but after a few months of stretching and pushing I can finally do correct squats. I really want to improve on my pathetic squat numbers. Long term goal 90kg @ 12% BF.

    So today was my first day on SS.

    Saturday
    Squat 3x5- 35kg
    Bench 3x5- 62.5kg
    Deadlift- 8x40kg, 5x50kg, 5x80kg
    Dips 3x5- Bodyweight

    Definitly tired now, next workout is on Monday. I might go for a surf tommorow. I will also put in some body measurements and photos when I get around to it.

    XOXO

    Saturday.

    Box Squat 3x5- 40kg
    Overhead Press- 2x5 37.5kg, 5x 20kg dumbells
    T-bar Rows 3x5- 31.25kg
    Lat Pull Down 5x5- 6.1 plates



    Squat was bad today, I think i'm going to go back to squatting 2x a week, I think 3x is too much for my leg. I will skip monday's squat session. Going to do 2 working sets of deadlifts instead. Also going to do dumbell over head presses now, barbells hurt my left deltoid for some reason...

    weighed in at exactly 80kg today, put on 700grams in the last 2 weeks, so I appear to be failing on my 'cut' but i'm not too worried I'm eating well and lifting hard and doing a bit of cardio, so I'm hoping its mainly lean mass.
