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?

    Good job on losing the pounds, you really are going at it and the hard work will become more and more obvious with time.

    Hit the gym at 7am this morning and it was below 30 degrees outside. I am not sure how familiar you are with Houston but it never really gets COLD here so when I can see my breath on the warmup jog that is worth talking about.

    Cocoa: Thank you for the continued support!

    muscle_g: What weight do you want to be at? I am doing the cardio half to get down so if I felt competitive I could do an AAPF at 242.5 or a Light Strongman at 231 and half because I would like to see some definition and abdominals this summer.

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup fast walk to jog

    SMR- 1 min upper 1 min lower body

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 10, Reverse Burpees 10, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick 5, 5

    CNS- Plyo Pushups 2, 2, 2

    Machine Bench Press 175*10, 245*10, 265*8, 305*5, 335*5 for 4 sets, 335*9 -came back and did this last set after finishing up Farmers Walk

    Leg Ext 245*10 for 7 sets

    Military Press 135*10 for 3 sets, 145*6, 145*8 for 3 sets

    Lat Raises: Front to Side 15lb DBs *10 for 2 sets

    Farmers Walk (50lbDB+45lbDB grip in each hand equals) 190*65ft, 190*58ft, 190*44ft, 190*38ft -after slamming my knee into a stationary bike last week I was much more careful when I did this again with more weight. I also plan on bringing a tape next time and measuring off how far I am going instead of estimating with pace count.

    DB Snatches L/R -skip, hit the first exercises so hard didnt have it in the tank to do this right and be explosive

    Std Wall DB Curls 35*10, 40*10 for 2 sets

    1/2 mile fast walk to jog

    200 crunches, 50 squats (25 regular, 25 w/15lb DBs on shoulders), 25 pushups (20 regular, 5 w/25lb DB on back)

    Thanks I got the time to invest in myself and no excuses so I am taking advantage! Yesterday was my day of rest and eating so I plan on hitting it hard tonight. With any luck I might get another 1 day pass with a buddy to a "real" gym. Still in job search mode so it will just be for a free visit.

    Nice work in here bud. Any reason your sticking with the lower reps on the db rows? Seems like at your strength you should be tossing those 50s around pretty easily.

    Free "real" gym pass fell through at last minute so ended up being short on time and rushed.....grrr. I hate to say I was worked up about it but you see I had taken my ECA 30min prior to the time I thought we were going and than had to stand around and wait for over an hour to hear we were not going so I thought it smart (it wasnt) to drink a coffee to keep the engine running - my body rejected this idea later....

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup jog

    1 mile treadmill 3.7mph no angle 15 min

    SMR- skip

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 10, Reverse Burpees 10, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick- skip

    CNS- Plyo Pushups 2, 2, 2
    Medicine Ball Slams 5

    So like I said I was short on time and had way too much caffeine so I did one set of each exercise with less than 30 sec to get to next station -close to a superset or complex type of workout today with 6 rounds and about a 2 min pause before going again.

    Leg Press 220*10, 280*10, 340*10, 400*10 for 3 sets

    Dips 6, 6, 6, 6, 10, 10 -I thought I was suppose to do sets of 6 reps so until I read back over last weeks journal I didnt notice and had to step it up

    Chin-up Work- remember "-" means I didnt like my height or form on the rep
    -this week the goal was to add weight, so after 40lb DB didnt work last week I went to holding 15lb DB with my feet instead
    4, 4 (3+1 because lost footing on weight), 4-, 2+2 (took a few breaths between), 4 (singles), 4(singles) -thought it better to keep form and dismount and reapproach than to cheat them

    Last week I did the Superset: DB Reverse Lunge to Military Press (hold at top) to DB OH Lunge, but inspired by a convo with WillKuenzel I wanted to give Split Squats a try. I thought before I started and was rushed that I could do both but that didnt happen. Those Split Squats are not easy!

    Split Squats L/R bodyweight*10, 25lb DBs*10, 30lb DBs*10, 35lb DBs*10 for 2 sets.

    Skull Crushers DB w/Palms Up -skip out of time

    Machine Rope Curls -skip out of time

    1/2 mile run -no time to fast walk or jog had to hall some A*$ to get back and shower up and not be late to some dinner plans. I got to say I was as close to puking up my protein shake, after such a fast workout and all out run, as I have been in a real long time. Maybe it was the speed I went through everything or maybe it was the overdose in caffeine but it is worth mentioning and I hope it gives you a good laugh and or some motivation! Oh and dont worry about me.... by the time dinner came to the table I was able to eat.

    200 crunches, no squats, no pushups

    muscle_g: Good goals

    Big o Boy: Thanks for stopping by and your question, my DBs at the gym only go up to 50s so it is a limiting factor. You are right, I should do some more reps above the 5*5s I have been doing or man up and do a double grip like I do with my Farmers Walk. This is why I have also been doing seated rows to try and cover it but you have raised a good point, thank you.

    CoCoa: Thank You and I hope you did get that laugh from the story at the end.

    Muscle_g: You must be part horse because these one legged leg press are killing me

    Also a quick question for anyone who knows, the two leg machines I have been using are not traditional leg press machines as I have seen and used before. One is seated and I move the weight and platform straight out in font of me and the other is what I think is technically a hack squat machine because I am moving up at an angle with the weight and the platform that my feet are on is fixed. The reason I got into the type of machines I am using is because I dont want to over tax my knees. Nothing has been a problem thus far but I am worried that the angle or lack thereof might cause problems.... thoughts

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup jog

    SMR- skip

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15, 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25, 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 10, Reverse Burpees 10, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick- 5, 5

    CNS- Plyo Pushups -replace with speed pushups 25, 25

    Complex Set: since I had just read Riley Bestwick's article on "Complexes for Fat loss" and have noticed some others doing more stuff like this in their journals I wanted to give it a try. Plus I just had no desire to hop on the treadmill so I tried to do these as he outlined his movements with quick transitions and 90 sec breaks before repeating.

    Skull to Tate to Curls than a break 4 times
    Skull Crushers DB w/Palms Up 40s *10 reps for 4 sets

    Tate Press 25s *10 -needed to get the feel for these never done them before and going off some videos I have seen on them, 35s *10 for 2 sets, 40s *10

    Std Alt DB Curls 35s *10 reps for 4 sets

    Complex Set: Delts to Calfs to One Leg Press than a break 4 times
    Rear Delt Machine 90*10, 130*10, 150*10, 170*10

    Calf Press 250*10 for 4 sets

    Alternating Close One Leg Press L/R 100*10, 150*10, 180*8, 190*4 -I have to say that these are real hard but working on one leg strength should help my lifts, I use the Magnum Retro Seated Leg Press instead of the previously mentioned Promaxima Raptor 30 degree Leg Press, which I was using yesterday for two legged leg press

    1/2 mile fast walk to jog

    no crunches, no squats, no pushups

    50 squats -BW
    100 pushups -Speed

    I split up my leg days so I would have more time to recover and more gas in the tank for each sessions efforts. I will try it like this for a few weeks and if it works I will keep it like this.

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup jog

    .55 mile treadmill up to 3.7mph no angle 10 min

    SMR- 1 min upper, 1 min lower body

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 12, Reverse Burpees 12, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick- 5, 5

    CNS- Plyo Pushups 2, 2
    Medicine Ball Slams 5, 5

    Leg Press 220*10, 280*10, 340*10, 400*10 for 5 sets

    Dips 8 for 5 sets

    Chin-up Work- remember "-" means I didnt like my height or form on the rep
    -this week the goal is to still add more weight, so after 15lb worked last week I went up to 20lb DB this week with my feet instead
    4 for 7 sets

    Split Squats L/R bodyweight*10, 30lb DBs*10, 30lb DBs*10

    DB Rows 50*10, (50 + 20 double grip) 70*10, 70*10 -for you Big o Boy thank you for calling me out on going light before

    Machine Rope Curls 120*10, 140*10, 150*8- out of steam at the end

    1/2 mile run

    100 crunches, no squats, no pushups

    continued.....

    Cardio:

    30 min walk medium pace not sure how far

    90 min "Boot Camp Workout" -the apartment complex has hired a guy to come in so it is free to us and I thought I would give it a try. The first few minutes was a lot of talking and stretching but once it got going it was a good Cardio session. Truth is I did sweat a ton despite feeling a bit out of my element.

    200 crunches

    Cocoa: Thank you... today is not going to be so hot. I think the "Boot Camp Workout" last night got me a bit more than I first thought because I was still spent for todays efforts.

    I forgot my protein shake which messed me up a bit and didnt get into the gym until later than normal this morning because of stuff going on in the apartment complex. I got to get out of this place!

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup fast walk to jog

    SMR- skip

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 12, Reverse Burpees 12, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick- skip

    CNS- Plyo Pushups 2, 2, 2

    Machine Bench Press 175*10, 245*10, 305*8, L/R 130*8 for 3 sets

    Leg Ext 250*10 for 6 sets -not sure if I like the way this weight felt on my knees at the top

    Military Press 130*10, 145*10, 145*8 for 4 sets

    Farmers Walk (50lb DB in each hand equals) 100*3laps 225ft for 3 sets -my grip was shot from the "monkey grip" on the Rows yesterday and I could not hold the 50lbDB+45lbDB grip in each hand for 190 as I had done last week so I just went for speed. Also as promissed I brought a measuring tape and each of my laps is 75 feet which means my earlier entries were all under estimated by about 10ft per lap

    DB Snatches L/R 50*5 for 3 sets -I need to get out of the gym and hit the WFH (Weight for Height or Overbar if you prefer) because although it is similar and working the right muscle groups I worry about my releases

    Std Wall DB Curls 35*10, 40*10 for 2 sets

    1/2 mile fast walk to jog

    no crunches, no squats, np pushups

    Nice perk with the bootcamp workout, good job overall for both days.

    I try to hit the Weights 4 days a week and than do Cardio when I can on top of that. Depending on my time constraints I do Cardio before or after I hit the Weights and some times it is later on in the evening or on one of my off days. Out of my three off days I try to reward myself on one of those days with no Cardio and with some "bad" foods. My personal favorites are Pringles, Homemade Nachos Supreme or a thick Fluffernutters on bleached white bread.

    Thank you. I was not a big believer in "Boot Camp Workouts" but I will say the one I went to was worth the time and that I will probably hit it up at least a few more times this month.

    Good day off yesterday but didnt sleep as much as I should have for recovery.

    Workout:

    1/2 mile warmup fast walk to jog

    SMR- skip

    DM- Jumping Jacks to Y-Jacks to X-Jacks to Crossovers 15
    T-Circles to I-Circles 25

    MA- T-Roll Pushups 12, Reverse Burpees 12, LYTPU w/5lb DBs 10 each,
    Inside Crescent to Outside Crescent to Roundhouse Kick- 10

    CNS- Plyo Pushups 2, 2, 2
    Medicine Ball Slams 10, 5
    Inverted Explosive Rows 10, 5

    Boxing Drills w/DB 15s for 3 sets

    Chin-up Work- remember "-" means I didnt like my height or form on the rep
    - I already hit this once this week with weights but I really felt the need to get some
    6, 6, 5, 5 -notice no "-" signs all were done with good form

    Seated Rows w/rope 150*15, 150*17, 150*22

    Good Mornings w/DB 50*15 for 3 sets

    Complex Set: I tried a slightly modified Complex Set #1 from Riley Bestwick's article on "Complexes for Fat loss" and used 35lb DBs *8 for the first time and 50lb DBs * 8 for the other 2 sets

    Romanian Deadlifts 35*8, 50*8 for 2 sets
    Bentover Rows 35*8, 50*8 for 2 sets
    Front Squat 35*8, 50*8 for 2 sets -I dont front squat often enough and these were slow
    Push Press 35*8, 50*8 for 2 sets -all my other shoulder work is from the seated position so these were also slow
    Pushup to Plank L/R 8 for 3 sets -I dont have the equipment for rollout so this was the modification I mentioned above

    -Despite some of the movements going slower than I would have liked moving from one to the next really got my heart rate up!

    Farmers Walk (50lbDB+45lbDB grip in each hand equals) 190*190ft, 190*155ft -I was mad at myself for screwing the pouch on this one Tuesday so I gave it another run and my "monkey grip" held.

    1/2 mile fast walk to jog

    200 crunches, 25 squats, 25 pushups

    Cardio:
    1 hr combination of walk, fast walk, jogging and sprinting

    ECA Update:
    It is almost the end of my third month and I am looking forward to measuring up diameters, weight, and body fat next week and posting. It is time for me to start thinking about IF I want to come off, how I should come off, and what to modify if I stay on. Ideas
