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?

    2010 & Onward - A New Beginning

    Or: Hitting the Weights & Stuffing My Face

    Current Weight as of 12/2009: 151lbs @ 5'7", under 10% BF

    Goal by Year end 2010: 200lbs @ 15% BF or less

    Other Goals:
    17" Arms
    26" + Quads
    BW x 20 Pull-Ups

    Previous Bodybuilding accomplishments include:
    165lbs @ 6% BF and 185 @ 10-12% BF
    Max Bench: 305
    Max Deadlift: 440
    Max Squat 345

    Total: 1090

    Hard to top, but totally possible with serious effort and dedication.

    Been completely out of the Iron Game for about 4 Years now (too damn long) and I'll be starting out with a simple push/pull/legs routine with a little arm/delt isolation work thrown in. Looking forward to gorging myself in the kitchen with anything in sight and packing on some serious mass. 180lbs by summertime/mid-year will keep me on track to hit my goal of 2 bills by next December.

    This won't be an entirely clean bulk as I'm much more concerned with overall calorie intake than nutritional ratios at this point. 1/2 Gal - 1 Gallon of Whole Milk will be an everyday thing.

    Even the Indian is cheering me on. That's Casino Indian, not Slurpee Indian He's like "Go Patty! Get fookin hyooge dood!"

    Oh and I totally forgot about everyone's favorite smiley Damn I missed this place.

    Supplements:
    Multivitamin, B-Complex, Creatine, Dextrose, Maltodextrin, Whey Protein

    I turned 30 last month and my kid's in the 4th Grade. The other day he called me "Dad" for the first time instead of "Daddy", so I know I'm getting old whether I want to admit it or not. The Iron will keep me young, at least that's the idea.

    You back up in here is awesome...The tough part is at the beginning, you should have no problem once you get moving again.

    You are one of those individuals who will never get old, lol.

    Thanks guys.

    Push Day

    BB Rack Bench:
    Warm up, 155 x 5, 155 x 5, 135 x 6, 135 x 5, 115 x 5, 115 x 3, 105 x 6

    Wow. I have to keep reminding myself that I'm starting over from scratch, and stop comparing myself to the Size & Strength that I had around '04-05. The good news is that starting at the bottom, I've got nowhere to go but up.

    Tomorrow is Pull Day. Legs on Xmas.

    Weak & Puny

    This is a recent pic. I've lost about 20lbs this year, not on purpose, but because I had damn near zero appetite until a few weeks ago. I'm at a point where I either pack on the LBS or waste away. I'll take door #1.

    The one thing I've had going for me physically is that I've been blessed with a good metabolism. Otherwise I've spent the last 4 years living a lazy unhealthy lifestyle.

    Screw my stupid Abs, I can't wait to watch them slowly disappear.

    WOOOOOW. No **** everyone's coming back.
    A gallon of whole milk? Holy crap dude. I'll stick to eating my jar of Peanut Butter in front of everyone like a weirdo.
    Good to see you my man.
    You could use a haircut though.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Don't have my rubber mats over here so I can't do deadlifts quite yet. Next week I'll at least add some Good Mornings. Or better yet just do them on leg day instead. Went rather light today, gonna spend these first couple weeks concentrating on form before I try going too heavy.

    I hadn't taken measurements because I was afraid to see how puny I've become. But Since you asked:

    14" Arms
    21" Quads

    Gained about 5lbs of water weight over the last 2 weeks, as of yesterday I was back up to 162 after Increasing my Agua intake and starting taking Creatine.

    I was way Dehydrated around the middle of the month, I had my Wisdom teeth pulled on the 3rd and a couple days later I developed "Dry Socket" where the blod clots that cover the bottom of ur wisdom holes become dislodged and exposes the gums & nerves underneath. It fookin sucked. I had to go back to the dentist like 3 or 4 times to get my extraction sites packed down with fresh gauze & Local anisthetic. Anyhow It killed what was left of my already low appetite, and when I looked at the scale and saw I was in the mid-low 150's, I'm like **** that. I need to pack some pounds on. Calorie goal is 3000/day MINIMUM.

    Legs:

    7 Working sets of Squats. Highlight was something like 155 x 9 or something.

    Attempted some lunges & step-ups afterwards, but my knees kept giving out.

    First time squatting in 3+ Years. Talk about a *****ing endorphin rush. I forgot how much fun it is!
