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?

    so i bought a box of quaker oats weight loss to keep me satisfied throughout the holidays and keep me from eating too much during dinner

    well that box didnt even make it to lunch lol, damn that was a pointless 1200 calories i could have spent on cheesecake

    yesterday i ate around 4900 and today my rough estimate is about 5500

    tommorow i will be tearing up weights! and two days away from the gym leaves no excuse

    That's got to be the quote of the week right there.

    trying to swithch things up this week and well see how i like it;

    my workout consists of a 3 day split of full body workouts

    6 total workouts, each 3-4 sets but different intensity/volume each day

    day1: Heavy **** with low volume
    day2: Hypertrophy, generally 50 total reps per exercise (ie: deadlift @ 205x50 reps)
    day3: isolation with high volume low intensity
    day4: Rest day and then Repeat [:

    i started a new diet today as well keeping it simple;
    1 gram of carb per pound of lean body weight @ 170/day and 300 grams protein 2500 calories total

    started weighing out and preparing food ahead of time

    okay enough typing time to hit day 3 and **** **** up

    good workout today! chest moderate intensity and high volume +45 minute LISS on treadmill @ 3mph

    worked up to 205 for a few sets on incline bench and then DB bench 100's

    few cable chest presses, dips (parallel and bench) then some tricep work

    lets get this diet perfect today! motivation level is pretty high (:

    note: cardio is starting to feel GOOOOD

    progress note; i feel as if im at the same as where ive started

    but i have made some PR's soo i think i may have lost fat gained muscle

    much too early to tell..

    1) time to pic up on the intensity and cardio

    2) my diet has definitely been straying from the guidelines.. time to take steps forward !!

    update: its monday suppose to be chest day but i feel like taking a day off

    i feel really lethargic and bloated..started ALR poison fat burner yday and i think it affected me somhow

    and its 7th day on Palumbo diet so combination of low carb and depleted adrenal glands = low energy

    weight this morning is 195.6 from 203.6 a week ago

    ^^^ i actually decided to hit chest today after hitting the gym for cardio sesh

    LISS on the stai stepper and then some chest

    was not the best workout of my life, pretty LOW energy and intensity

    too much stimulants this day, and too little carbs
