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?

    Off Road's (Old Dude) HCT-12

    Okay, okay...I know I was doing good with the 5/3/1, but I just couldn't resist giving HCT-12 a good run through. I've built a good strength and conditioning base, and I want to put some of this hypertrophy stuff to the test before I get too old to take advantage of it. I love the looks of the routine and the science behind it, it definitely falls in line with what I think is "the right way to train." So without further a-do...

    My routine:
    Day 1:
    Seated Shoulder Press
    Weighted Bar Dips
    Barbell Curls

    Day 2:
    Barbell Back Squats
    Stiff Leg Dead Lift
    Weighted Situps

    Day 3:

    Day 4:
    Barbell Bench Press
    Rack Pull-Ups
    Barbell Rows

    Day 5:

    My Diet: (~3,300 calories)

    Meal 1:
    3 whole eggs
    2 turkey sausage patties
    1/2 cup plain oatmeal
    6 oz. orange juice
    3 fish oil caps

    Meal 2:
    1 slice whole wheat bread
    10-12 slices turkey lunch meat
    2 slices provolone cheese
    1 piece of fruit (apple, banana, bunch of grapes)

    Meal 3: (post workout)
    1/2 cup milk
    2 scoops Nitrean

    Meal 4:
    Large amounts of lean meat
    2 cups green vegetables
    Small potato or rice

    Meal 5:
    1-1/2 cups cottage cheese
    handful of raw nuts

    Also, large amounts of water throughout the day.

    Seated Press
    80 lbs x 6
    100 lbs x 6
    120 lbs x 6
    135 lbs x 6
    150 lbs x 6
    170 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2

    Bar Dips
    BW x 6
    +55 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2

    Barbell Curls
    Bar x 6
    65 lbs x 6
    100 lbs x 6 + 2 + 2 + 2

    I guessed just about right for the press. I got the 6 reps pretty easy, but the + 2's were tough. I definitely didn't go heavy enough with the dips, I need to add a bit more next time and add another ramping set. The curls were alright, a little light, but not bad. The workout was quick and intense, just the way I like it. Tomorrow, squats...
