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?

    TonyD's first go around with HCT-12

    Hey everyone, i'm new to the board and also new to HCT-12. It looks interesting so I thought i'd give it a go.

    I'm 180 lbs, cut down from 210. I've been dieting for a quite a while and i'm ready to start eating and growing again and this program looks like fun. heh.

    I hope this log will help keep me on track and any comments or suggestions would be welcome.

    I decided to do the 4 day split. I started friday and had my second day today. So my split is M W F S.

    Fridays workout felt good. It's weird to go in the gym and not go through a bunch of sets per body part but i'm sure i'll adjust and i'm looking forward to seein how my body responds to the new program.

    Fridays work out numbers:

    Overhand pulldown (in lbs):
    60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x6 160x6 180x6 +2 +2 +2

    One arm DB rows:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 +2 +2 +2

    Incline DB Press:
    30x6 50x6 70x6 90x6 (couldn't get 90lb DB's up for rest so I went down to 75) 75x2 +2 +2

    Standing DB press:
    25x6 35x6 45x6 55x6 +2 +2 +2

    Cable pushdown (ez bar):
    60x6 90x6 120x6 150x6 +2 +2 +2

    Saturday was a little rough, my back was super tight after the deadlifts and so that made things a little tough after them.

    Saturdays workout numbers:

    Deadlift:
    135x6 185x6 235x6 285x6 315x6 +2 +2 +2

    Leg Press:
    45esx6 90esx6 135esx6 180esx6 225esx6 270esx6 +2 +2 +2

    calf raise on a sled:
    60x6 80x6 140x6 180x6 220x6 260x6 +2 +2 +2

    I did 2 Bicep exercises instead of one

    BB curl:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 +2 +2 +2

    Spider curl:
    20x6 40x6 60x6 +2 +2 +2

    I was pretty exhausted after this workout. Deadlifts drain me. I could have done more weight with the leg press but my lower back was so tight it was a challenge just to get through what I did.

    I think I need to wear my belt on that last set of deads and see if that helps at all.

    Well, I look forward to any criticism or suggestions.

    Thanks guys

    Thanks man! I know I have plenty to learn so I appreciate the offer.

    My calves are so wrecked from saturday. I guess I should have eased into them after not doing calves for a few weeks.

    Monday 11/29 WO

    close-grip Under-Hand pulldown
    60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x6 160x6 180x6 +2 +2 +2

    Under-Hand BB Row (smith) (i'm including weight of bar, in weight amounts just to make it easy to read):
    95x6 115x6 135x6 185x6 205x6 +5 +4 +4 Need to go heavier on last set.

    DB flat bench:
    35x6 45x6 65x6 85x6 95x6 75x2 +2 +2. I had the same problem as i did with the DB incline presses. I am going to try BB presses next time and see if I can keep the weight more consistent with the clusters.

    Military press (Machine): 40x6 60x6 80x6 100x6 120x6 140x4 120x2 120 +2 +2 +2

    Close-Grip Bench (Smith):
    95x6 115x6 135x6 155x6 205x8 +5 +5 +4 Need to go heavier.

    My traps are pretty sore from saturday which I like. I'm looking forward to squats then rack deads wednesday.
