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?

    I work out at home in the garage, alone and in and about my power rack. Probably post my works outs at the end of each week on here. Maybe after each one I'm not sure yet. I keep track of everything in my journal at home, just wanted a place to point to online for other people to see. Plus get some encouragement and help from others.

    The Juggernaut Method

    I had some family issues the last two weeks or so, got some workouts in. Doing a little deloading this week.

    Someone talked me into doing The Juggernaut Method, which I will be starting this Sunday...

    I'm a little nervous about it lol

    The Juggernaut Method

    Week One 10's Wave

    Monday 4/4/2011

    OHP:
    65 4x10 1x13

    Dips:
    BW 5x10

    Push-downs:
    Orange+Yellow Band 4x15

    Barbell Curls:
    55 3x10

    Pull-ups:
    10x2 Between sets 20 total

    So I did my pull-ups between sets, and since today's workout seems to be pretty quick, I did some light curls at the end.

    I use to have problems with my shoulder, I couldn't do any kind of pressing movements. Been years since I even did bench press, which I am trying with this program. My shoulders seem to be feeling pretty good so I'm easing my way back into these movements and focusing a lot on form. I think mostly what use to kill my shoulders were they way I use to sleep on them, and late night video game sessions lol.

    The Juggernaut Method

    Week One 10's Wave

    Wednesday 4/6/2011

    Rack Lifts:
    215 4x10 1x15

    Lunges:
    BW 5x16 Steps

    AB Wheel:
    5x10

    Was trying to do GHR after the rack lifts, but the ghetto way I was trying to do it just wasn't working out. Anybody know of a good substitute instead? Or other ideas? Everything else went alright, one more workout to go this week and the first week is over...

    The Juggernaut Method

    Week Two 10's Wave

    Wednesday 4/13/2011

    Rack Lifts:
    195x5 220x5 240 2x10 1x15

    Lunges:
    BW 5x20 Steps

    AB Wheel:
    5x10

    Pull-ups:
    10x2 Between sets 20 total

    Switched from over hand grip on rack lifts, to a over and under. Felt a little more natural with more power. Felt like less stress on my lower back. Also didn't need straps at all, like I used on the last set last week. First time I ever did a over and under grip...

    The Juggernaut Method

    Week Three 10's Wave

    Sunday 4/17/2011

    Squats:
    125x5 145x3 170x1 185x22

    Pull-Through:
    2x Orange Bands 4x15

    Lunges:
    BW 5x20 Steps

    AB Wheel:
    5x10

    hitt cardio for 10 mins with a punching bag. 30 seconds on 30 seconds off.

    On the final wave of the 10's phase, managed to get 22 reps before I ran out of gas on the squats. Use to wear a belt during squats so far no belt yet. I will only count 20 reps towards the 8's phase though I only want to count like 3 lol... I believe it's going pretty good so far.
