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?

    i went fishing this past weekend and got a pretty good case of sun poisoning. i have horrible burn blisters all over my shoulders and back. simply putting a shirt on to go to work is incredibly painful........ hopefully theyll be cleared up by the end of the week? or maybe ill be taking the week off........ my entire upper body is throbbing with pain, and i look like a human shaped tomato............

    i really did have a terrible burn. huge blisters all over my back and shoulders. very painful, but the pains gone now and its all been reduced to a LOT of peeling skin. 80 percent of my uper body is covered in layers of peeling skin. but the real reasons im posting?

    BECAUSE IM GOING TO THE GYM TOMORROW

    its been a week and 2 days. this may be the most focused ive been to hit the gym. i will not miss another session. i will leave NOTHING in the tank. every fiber of my being will be driven towards my goals.

    tomorrow is a new beginning.

    pull ups - bodyweight + 20 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    single arm DB rows - 70 lb DBs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    flat BB bench - 205 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    seated DB OH press - 50 lb DBs X 6 + 2 + 2.....

    didnt get to do my last 2 OH presses or my close grip bench because the gym manager was kinda bein a prick today and made us leave about 20 minutes before close =\ but for having over a week off, none of these lifs went down, and i put 5 more lbs on the bench so thats good. my lower back is STILL giving me fits. how long could this take to heal...........

    pull ups - BW + 27 1/2 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    single arm DB rows - 80 lb DB x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    flat BB bench - will explain....
    seated DB OH press - 55 lb DBs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2

    i tried to do it with 225 ( the flat bench ) and the right side banged into the pin ( i bench in the power rack ) at the bottom of the 4th rep and it threw me off really bad so i had to dump it. so i was pissed and thought alright ill just take it down to 215 and do it. banged into the pin again at the bottom of the 3rd rep. dumped it. said forget it because i was running out of time before the gym closed. i got my DB OH presses in and was ready to head out but i looked over at the 215 lb bar sitting there laughing at me and got really angry. i put it back up on the rack, laid down, out of breath, banged out 5 good reps and had the fight of my life for the 6th. but i came out the victor.

    squats - 240 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    rack pulls - 310 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    ez bar curls - 110 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2
    cable crunches - 60 lbs x 6 + 2 .......... and then........

    went for my second set of 2 reps and at the full contraction of the crunch everything in my stomach locked into a furious death grip. i let go of the cable and let the weight crash down as i fell to my hands and knees in excruciating pain. i just sat like that on the floor for about 6 minutes just feeling like every muscle in my midsection was shredding into pieces. waves and waves of pain. it took me at least 15 minutes before i could stretch myself somewhat upright. im being very careful the rest of the night, and we'll see how it feels tomorrow. hopefully it was nothing more than a bad cramp.

    bench press - .....

    i noticed on my warm ups that my right wrist was giving in when i was benching. like it was flimsy, flopping back. but i went for the 225 and of course i dropped the bar on the very first rep. thankfully i bench in the rack so it hit my chest but the full weight wasnt all on me, the pins caught it. theres no pain, i dont think im injured. i think it just kinda gave out.... oh well, my left shoulder was bothering me anyway so i just did some DB presses and called it a night.

    i was a wannabebig facebook contest winner and got 2 free tubs of Results, from Atlarge Nutrition and i received them today. so im going to go all out for the next 2 months (since they will last me 60 days) and put this product to the test. im going to keep track of the results i get from "results". im learning alot about protein lately and im getting my diet together pretty well. so im going to do my part and give 100% each training session, eat right, sleep right, and see what Results can do for me!

    Day one of Results - 179 pounds. going to follow the directions to the letter.
