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?

    Thanks man, been trying to get in as much work as possible for sure. I think after the meet i'm going to focus on my diet more, and adding in more cardio/conditioning. I may try to slowly cut down to 198, would like to compete there, but not possible for this meet lol. I wouldn't mind being 220, if i had 20lbs more muscle, all in good time though. Anyway, on to today's session.

    Great session, feeling good about my first and second attempt. 275 was a PR match and went much better than last time i tried it. Hoping for 285 on my third attempt, may go heavier if 275 feels easy at the meet.

    Today sucked, missed new PR of 415 on deads, and missed previous PR of 405. I just felt tired and sluggish for some reason. Squats were horrible, hips were so tight. I don't know that doing ME squat one day and ME deads on another is good. I've done both on the same day and seem to have better luck than I have with splitting them up. Oh well, I'll get that 415 soon enough, back to rack pulls against bands.

    Starting 531 tomorrow. Made an excel spreadsheet, all percentages are mapped out for a month. Just doing the main lift and 2 assist exercises each day. Planning on 10 min of cardio before, and 20 min after. Going to clean up my diet and begin leaning up, wanting to focus on getting healthier, so strength gain may come a little slower but I'm okay with that.

    Thanks man, sounds like a good plan. Maybe after things calm down we can try to meet up and train some. The holidays are upon us so I'll probably have to struggle to make it to the gym 4 days a week lol.

    Thanks Stephen! I'll probably keep chin ups as a staple in my assistance exercises, slow and steady is the plan. I've lost 3lbs in the last week, so hope to keep that trend going as well. Want to slowly slim down so hopefully not much strength is lost.

    Thanks, still feeling the deadlift day lol. No weight loss yet really, think i kept most of the strength even though I didn't lift for 3 weeks. Kept taking protein, and creatine even though i wasn't lifting. I'm 5'10", think i'm sitting around 220-225, haven't weighed myself in a bit. More bodyfat than i prefer, thats for sure.

    Cut the assistance work short today, still feeling my deadlift workout from earlier this week. Last time I did this squat routine i was sore for like 4 days. So I lightened the assistance work and lowered sets. Got to get back into the groove after missing a few weeks. Didn't end with cardio, a friend of my came in so I had him go through each of the main lifts, and I'm going to set him up a 5/3/1 plan as well. Looking forward to next week, glad to be motivated again!

    Rough one today, only had one day off between week 1 and this week. Haven't slept as much as needed, and didn't eat enough yesterday. I'll get plenty of food and rest today/tonight. Tomorrow is deadlift day and my legs are still pretty beat from squat day. I'm ready to conquer the weight tomorrow, so I plan to kill it.
