The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    For Poshbird
    My Current Food Intake


    Firstly, the things I avoid are:
    Potatoes, Bread (I only have 1 slice a day), Rice, Pasta, Cakes, Biscuits, Lollies, Chocolate, Cheeses, Alcohol etc (damn! all the good things)
    I'm not saying I don't have these things. I just don't have them too often or if I do, I only eat small servings.

    General Daily Intake:
    Brekky:
    Oats & a small amount of sultanas with skim milk (microwaved to porridge) with cinnamon and some fake sugar to sweeten. Now that our weather is getting quite hot I have been having Wheat Bran instead w/skim milk served with peaches or sliced banana. I drink a Protein shake (about 50g protein) with skim milk. Occasionally Ill also have a few nuts (cashews or macadmias)

    Morning Tea:
    Half a protein bar (22.5g protein) and a small tin of creamed rice (95g tin)

    Lunch:
    1 slice of toast w/some avocado or low-fat ricotta, topped with cold lean meat. I like turkey, low fat ham or chicken breast supreme 98% fat-free. It's nice with some mustard too. I also eat 100-200g low fat cottage cheese with about 100g thawed raspberries. YUM

    Afternoon Tea:
    Protein Shake and fruit, maybe some nuts as well. This is sometimes before my weight session.

    Dinner:
    Salad and Tuna, or fish, or chicken, or boiled eggs (not too many yolks) or other lean meat source. Or steamed vegies and protein source. Might have another serve of cottage cheese and raspberries for dessert.

    Others:
    Post-workout snack: 1/2 protein bar + creamed rice.
    If I'm picky: Low cal jelly and low-fat yoghurt, fruit, strawberries, blueberries etc.
    If I've had a huge day: maybe a small shake before bed.

    The other week I worked out my daily calorie intake was a little under 1700 calories. Protein was 217g, Carbs were 150 and Fat was 26.65g.

    Not much changes day to day, I guess you could possibly add 200-300 calories for a big day, so all in all I don't think I would exceed 2000 calories in any given day if I'm on my best behaviour. I still have 1 night off a week for takeaway and red wine and this hasn't done me any harm so far.

    I also use Fish Oil Tablets, Magnesium tabs and Apple Cider Vinegar.

    The above outline is not what I began eating. It's what I'm eating now. My new goal is to increase muscle mass, now that I've lost a good deal of fat, I'm focused more of getting in adequate protein. Workouts are also more intense now, so the need for protein is important for me. I would look up the Zone Diet on the web or buy Barry Sears' book if your primary goal at the moment is fat loss. It was a brilliant food plan 40% carbs, 30% protein and 30%fat or you could work those numbers out for yourself if you know the nutrition info of the foods you are eating. It takes a while to get used to getting calculations right but after a while, you will know what you can have without time consuming measurements.


    Hope this helps.

    This will sound lame, but I had to google Dead Kennedys..... had never heard of them! I was referring to today as the day J.F.K was assasinated. Now i'm off to sample some Dead Kennedys music (so I can say I know who they are!)

    Shoulders


    BB Shoulder Press
    12 x 10kg (WU)
    10 x 20kg (WU)
    10 x 25kg
    8 x 30kg
    10 x 30kg (66lb)
    Got more reps out on the last set, got held up chatting btw 4th & 5th set, so longer rest than normal. Was discussing the importance of leg work with one of the boys, who avoids leg work!!!

    Wicked Shoulder Series:
    Lateral Raises followed immediately by Standing DB Shoulder Press
    5 sets
    10 reps for both exercises each set x 12lb DB's (amazing how heavy 12lb DB's can feel in presses straight after doing lateral raises)
    Note: Felt stronger doing this weight on lateral Raises this week. Didn't need any cheat reps.

    Front Plate Raises
    22lb plate x 10 x 1 set
    25lb plate x 10 x 4 sets

    Rear Delts
    5lb DBs x 15 reps x 5 sets

    Upright Rows
    20 kg BB
    5 sets x 10 reps (with 30 sec rest)

    Shrugs
    25lb DB's x 15 x 1 set
    35lb DB's x 15 x 2 sets

    Bike Intervals
    20 minutes - 248cal

    Dinner tonight was delish! Picked up some smoked salmon at the shops.... marked down from $12 to $4!!! Got 3 packs woohoo! Had with salad. Yummo

    On another note, I now consistently weigh between 74-75kg (163-165lb) so I think I have gained some mass. The lightest I got to a few weeks ago was was 72.6kg (160lb). Would have to check the exact date though.

    Next workout: LEGS.
    Aim: Practice my squats in the power rack at home! Try and get lower

    Night all. I need sleep and hopefully no silly tradesmen waking me up too early tomorrow morning next door with their stupid #$@!ng hammer

    Yep, it's downstairs in hubby's 'dump'. It also has a chin up bar attached. Not that I'm strong enough to do many chinups at this stage. I get more done by going to the gym though (but my gym has no rack, only smith machines). Getting away from the house and the kids is more productive to my sessions. No one can call out "Mummmmmmmmy!". There is more equipment at the gym for what I need. We have a few olympic plates at home, an olympic bar, a bench, another bar and a few more smaller plates, but that's about it. It will certainly serve my purpose now that I am going to work on my squat once a week and hope the dodgy back holds up.

    Hahaha I like that! Don't come knockin' if the gym is rockin' huh?

    Problem with me is, I still hear the kids, I hear the crying, screaming, fighting etc and then can't concentrate, relax or enjoy my workout. Maybe the music is not loud enough? Thought to ponder.....

    Ok, I've had another crack at squats at home. As you are all aware, last week was my first attempt at proper squats in many years. I added a box this week. The box I used was all I could find that was a bit lower than the big heavy blocks that were downstairs already. I think that there is an improvement in depth already, albeit just a little bit lower than last week. I didn't go silly on reps or weight. The 90lb I had on the bar might be laughable to some but was heavy enough at this early stage whilst I work on technique. Next week I will try and find a box slightly lower. See what you all think anyway about this week's effort. Off to gym this afternoon to finish leg workout, some 10x20's lighter box squats maybe, leg extensions, curls, calves etc.

    EDIT: Tried to embed the video but somehow it wouldn't work, so here is the link

    Put a plate onto your box Alli, and SIT BACK. Your sitting down into the squat, this causes you to use less hamstring and more lowerback. And its making it harder for you to hit depth, a lower box for you right now would just mean that your knees would shoot even further forward without involving more ham/glute.

    I really advocated sitting onto the box too, rather than using as a depth gauge. If you want to know if your going deep enough, simply sit back as far as you can go (with-out the box) until you feel that you cannot go any lower without loosing your arch.

    Are you saying I should sit down onto the plate/box as if I was going to sit on a chair (and stop altogether) rather than touching it to gauge my depth before rising? So, don't worry so much about the depth? The big wooden blocks at home would take me to about parallel. I could use that rather than adding a plate to the box shown in video.

    Last week's first attempt at squats left my glutes and upper hammy's with a good deal of DOMS. More DOMS in glute/ham than quads. Maybe that's because my quads are better conditioned????

    Thanks for the feedback Cliff and Off Road

    Legs


    Squats
    at home, in power rack.
    Focused on getting deeper than 1st attempt week before.
    Next week I need to write down sets, reps, weights
    Didn't go heavier than 90lb + bar.
    Warmed up with 10 rep sets (Bar, 20lb, then with 50lb)
    Remaining sets, probably about 5 sets working on form (reps btw 3-5)

    Gym; Night:
    Box Squats
    with BB on back (remembering no racks at gym)
    10 sets
    9 sets x 20 reps @20kg (44lb)
    1 set x 50 reps @20kg (44lb)

    Leg Extensions
    5 sets x 10 reps @35, 40, 45, 50 and 50kg (110lb)
    no pain but knees were cracking, sounded horrible & didn't feel very smooth

    Leg Curls
    5 sets x 10 reps @50, 55, 62.5, 62.5 and 67.5 (heaviest effort to date)

    I was dared to do the following. Seated calves 6x20 and standing calves 6x20, so I obliged and then wondered why I had agreed. Silly me.

    Seated Calves
    6 sets x 20 reps
    @20kg (44lb) x 1 set
    @30kg (66lb) x last 5 sets

    Standing Calves
    6 sets
    50kg x 15 reps (couldn't get 20)
    40kg x 17 reps (plus 8 mini squeezes at top range of motion)
    30kg x 20 reps x 4 sets (had to drop weight to 30kg to manage 20 reps)

    Calves were ready to EXPLODE

    Decline Plank Hold
    Held it for 4 Minutes! PB
    It was horrendous and my anterior delts starting cramping when I finished. My right sacro-iliac joint had some pain when I finished. I challenged a fellow gym goer to try them, so we started together. He did 2 and a half minutes. I wanted to beat my 3 1/2minute effort but think I would have quit if he wasn't pushing me to hold on.

    EDIT: 20 min bike. (incl. 10 min HIIT) 240cal

    Rest day today (wednesday)

    Cardio/Abs


    Only had a brief amount of time in the gym after dropping off the little fella to school and getting my girl to her swimming lesson, so did some cardio and some abs. Didn't have enough time to really work abs, so tried something new to see how my back would handle it. See below.

    Bike HIIT 20 minutes, 240cal
    5 min warm up, 15 mins Intervals; for the most part -15 sec work @110RPM level 15, 30 sec rest @85RPM level 10. Some intervals towards end were 30 sec work, 30 sec rest and right at the end I bumped it up to Level 16 for 10-15 sec work. Sweaty sweaty sweaty.

    Stepper 10 minutes
    Hill Setting
    Level 6, speed between 8.0-9.0, calories 130

    Standing DB Side Crunch
    20 each side x 25lb DB

    Barbell Bench Situps
    only went light to see if I could handle them
    15kg BB x 10
    15kg BB x 15
    then had to run otherwise we were going to be late.
    Saw this video posted by Jason Pegg and thought they looked cool

    Dang you are lean Gigi... I begin my quest for a lean-ish body soon (just not fat really is what I'm after haha).

    Awesome work on the veins in the legs.

    Damn you for getting a deep tissue massage, I'm hankering for one.

    4 sets x 10 reps (didn't do 5th set, had some left elbow pain so stopped)

    Didn't complete tricep exercises. Was going to do pushdowns but decided not to push left elbow pain. Went and did cardio instead.

    HR at 172bpm at end

    HR between 150-160ish

    Stretching

    A group of 3 boys training together made a comment I was not happy about referring to the size of my breasts (or lack of). As I could not be 100% certain I had actually heard correctly, I did not pursue the comment further but I'm pretty sure what I heard was what was said. I was mighty pissed off. Insecure little imbeciles. What makes some boys think it's ok to slag off a female just to impress their mates?

    Have a good weekend everyone!

    Making desserts today to take out tomorrow to a friend's house. My famous crunchy top apple pie, a chocolate mousse and a Banoffee Pavlova with sweet, sticky orange sauce. I'm going to have to be on my best behaviour today and not sample too much whilst preparing. Save myself for some treats tomorrow and most likely a cardio session before I go out, to lessen the guilt!!!!

    Saw this video a fair while ago. Now I know she's all boobs and I don't know what else she's into *giggle* lord only knows, but I thought her strength was quite impressive and wondered how many of you boys can do this? Nothing to do with my journal I know, but something to break the monotony is never a bad thing.....
