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?

    Pursuing Greatness

    Hey guys. Decided to start a new journal. Needed a fresh start.

    Weekly Training Schedule:
    MON- MMA
    TUE- Squat
    WED- MMA
    THU- OHP
    FRI- Deadlift
    SAT- Off
    SUN- Bench

    Goals are to be big, fast, and strong. I am adding some Olympic lifts into my routine to help be explosive for MMA. Plan is to bulk to 250ish over the next few years, then cutting to around 225.

    I appreciate all the support.
