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?

    Dave I was never a fan of the hack squat in my old gym because of the way it felt in my knees. At another gym I went to they had a V-Squat and I started to face into the machine, which was a fantastic quad exercise. My question with your diet is, are you concerned about the mercury content in tuna? Notice you have been eating quite a bit.

    i have ate tuna like this for years. 2 years go i was tested and the results came back neg. dr laughed when i told him i wanted to get tested (its take a extreme amount of tune to get infected) personally i thought it was all blown out of proportion.

    back
    just wanted to note my left bicep is still bothering me,i kind of figured out it hurts mostly with width grip pulldowns. so the next couple weeks i am going to lighten up my back routine by doing ,more reps with drop sets etc, hopefully this will give it time to heal.

    wide grip lat. pulldowns
    2 warm up sets
    4sets
    140x12,160x10,180x7,same

    dumbell rows
    4 sets
    110x15,150x8,150x8,150x10

    i decided since i had a terrible workout i would do deadlifts again 2 weeks in a row. still did not push myself all out on these yet,hopefully in a couple more weeks

    I like the workouts. It looks like you still use a good ammount of "power" movements in your training and you show good strength in them too. I like that.

    With your conditioning, you probably didn't even break a sweat with that abreviated routine.

    How long did it take for you to build up to that ammount of volume?
    Something I'm really working on lately is my work capacity. I want to be able to add volume, still keep my intensity, and not burn out.

    I have been training for say 25years not necessary bodybuilding if used to play all sports in hs. Played basketball for many years until injuries then long distance running, so combined with all thses activites all my life, i never really get tired or burned out. If i do start to get tired or wore down i just take a little time off, i seem even at my age to recover really fast. I think anyone can do volume, it just takes time to get to that level. Your body can and will adapt to what ever you through at it.
