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?

    Nothing exciting. Spent the weekend moving all the heavy stuff from my rental house to the new house. I've got almost all my stuff set up in the garage so I can train at home real soon

    Getting sick sucks and you do lose a fair bit of weight, but I always seem to put that weight back on quickly. Get well soon, bud.

    Thanks Jesse. If I didn't have all this moving crap I'd probably start back today. Checked the weight and I'm at 223 in work clothes. So I didn't lose as much as I thought. May get in the garage tonight and play around a bit just to test out the new set up.

    Feeling much better and getting really antsy. Moving into the new house tomorrow (hopefully) and then starting ASAP. Hopefully I can get started in the next few days. Thanks for the support

    Good luck getting back into it. You've got alot going on. Moving sucks and to have to do it coming off the plague makes it worse.

    All that stress has consequences on the lifting for sure. Stay with it you'll be back on track in a few workouts.
    You must be working on a nice home gym to be quitting Powerhouse.. I've always wanted a home gym

    It doesn't really take much equipment to get in a solid workout. I have some squat stands, a bar, loadable DBs, some pillars of power (for spotting), a bench on the way, and a few random things. Keeping it simple

    (Fellow Missourian checking in) I couldn't agree more, doesn't take a lot of fancy stuff to get the job done. I train in the corner of my garage with basic equipment and it's been just as good as when I trained at a commercial gym. Will look forward to following your progress in your new gym.

    2/8/10
    First workout in the garage.
    Cold as hell and I haven't touched a weight in 17 days

    Power Cleans
    95 x 1 rep x 3 sets (RPE-6)
    115 x 1 rep x 3 sets (RPE-7)
    135 x 1 rep x 3 sets (RPE-8)
    155 x 1 rep (RPE-8) PR
    185 x 0 shouldn't have even tried

    Deadlifts (belt)
    185 x 1
    205 x 1
    255 x 1
    305 x 0 (got about 3 inches off the ground)
    305 x 0 (the same)
    255 x 1

    Still gauging where my strength is. Power cleans were UGLY but I'm definitely a lot stronger than the last time I did them. Going to do some squats and OH pressing on Wednesday to check those out. Should have my bench in about 2 weeks.

    Nice workout in the cold. All this global warming hasn't helped with the STL winters much. I wish I had the discipline to workout at home. I need to get in the car and go somewhere to make sure I do the work.

    Thanks guys. Overall bad idea to go out there without a plan, but it did feel good to do something.

    You got out there and put some work in, that's always a good thing, good job! Man I can total understand the cold workouts, I swear I could see my breath this morning in my garage. Glad to see you are back at it!

    Nice return mate, you must be well exicted about your gym? A buddy over here has just set one up in his basement and I think I get just as giddy about it as he does. Get yourself a huge sound system, you'll be smashing through PRs in no time!

    2/10/10 Cycle 1 Workout 1 Overhead Press "5's"

    OH Press (sleeves)
    70 x 5
    80 x 5
    90 x 12 (PR) (Estimated Max 126)

    65 x 10 (RPE-7)
    65 x 10 (RPE-8)
    65 x 10 (RPE-9)

    French Press
    KB (24kg) x 10 (RPE-10)
    KB (24kg) x 4 (RPE-10)

    First workout of my 5/3/1 cycle. I'm taking it a little easy on the assistance work. Going to do sets of 10 on whatever the assistance work is as long as I can maintain an RPE of 9 or less. As you can see it didn't quite workout on the french press. Some limitations to what I have at home but I'm sure I'll work it out soon enough.

    Worked out in the garage, which is great. My wife and daughter were chilling out in the living room and I just walked over the garage got it done and came back. Much easier than going to the gym.

    Not at all. The key to getting PRs is to sometimes do something that you haven't done in a LONG time
