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?

    Currently doing an 8 day cycle

    Day 1 : Depletion - Cardio if I feel like it
    Day 2 : Cardio whore
    Day 3 : Cardio whore take 2
    Day 4 : Cardio whore uno mas
    Day 5 : Tension AM + carb whore
    Day 6 : semi carb whore
    Day 7 : Power Workout AM
    Day 8 : and on the 8th day he rested.

    So since my schedule is really flexible and I enjoy torturing myself... I manage to do the depletion all in one day.

    Yes, that is 88 sets of muscle burning misery all in one go.

    Training : 88 depletion sets (avg ~tut per set 50 seconds)
    Cardio : 45 minutes easy walking
    Diet : 37 oz of chicken boob

    still alive... just finished settling down back in SoCal. Still not sure whether I like it here better or not, but I did grow up here and all of my family is around here.

    Hit up a full body on Monday with a little lighter weight.

    Squats 385x5, 385x3, 385x3
    Bench 190x6, 190x6, 190x5
    Seated Hammer Row 250x6 250x6 250x6 - new machine... may have been a bit too heavy toward the latter reps.

    Yesterday

    45 minutes cardio, kept heart rate ~135-140bpm

    Diet wise I have gotten back on track this week. I think I will be slowly cutting until the end of October. UD2 is on hold with my hectic scheduling, but I will probably be using it for the last 8 weeks (September/October) If I'm not emaciated by then I don't know if it will ever be possible.

    Yesterday

    Squat below parallel
    365x6x3

    Weighted Dips - haven't done them in awhile
    +70x8
    +80x7
    +90x6

    all sets pretty light... stopped short on the last 2 because I didn't have a dip belt and the dumbbell was slipping from my legs.

    BB Rows
    155x6x3 - never really was a fan of bb rows, but lets see if I can stick em out. Don't think i've done bb rows in years.

    Seated Tricep Extension
    90x6x2
    Hammer Curl
    70x10
    70x6

    off to go do some cardio

    went to see what my max squat tripple was a few days ago...

    ended up with 415x3 with a grinder on the last one...

    Dips +100x5, bw x 34
    miscelleneous pullups in there

    this morning
    10 intervals 15s/45s of double unders
    followed by 45 minutes of cardio ~130 bpm

    Starting to feel a little burnt out, could be a combination of less sleep + calorie restriction. I am more than likely going to refeed some time this week and start doing them every 5-8 days ~800g carbs on the day.

    bw as of Sunday was ~175

    Holy cardio! Like Coke said, nice strength retention, especially with all the calorie restrictions. No wonder you feel a bit burnt out, striving in those sessions. Keep it up!

    haha, ya... since coming back down to SoCal I seem to sleep less, eat less, workout more. I kind of been getting sidetracked and feeling the consequences now.

    no air conditioning and a 95+ degree room doesn't equate to much sleep. The eating part is probably my own doing and my busy sched as of late.

    Did a full body workout earlier so I can start somewhat of a refeed the remainder of the day. Not being to particular as to track calories, but making sure I hit protein ~1g/lb, keep fat fairly low, and get a crap ton of carbs.

    I did deadlifts for the first time in awhile on monday and my lower back was shot when I attempted squats today. It definitely was a sub par workout

    weight up to 181 post refeed, gain of about 5 pounds.

    Don't know why I'm weighing myself... I pretty much go most of dieting with just weighing myself once a month or what not. Just felt like seeing my day to day changes again for s*** and giggles.

    I suspect to be back down to 175 within a day or two. Don't remember the last time I was ever under 180. Feeling a bit better, refeed helped a bit with putting me to sleep, and body is recovering a tad faster as expected. Still have the feeling of being a tad run down. I will probably take the rest of the week off (key word probably) from lifting at least. Might do some cardio tomorrow or Saturday.

    Thinking of doing my routine like this

    Day 1: Upper body
    Day 2: Cardio
    Day 3: Legs
    Day 4: Off
    Day 5: Upper Body
    Day 6: Cardio
    Day 7: Off

    Volume will be fairly low. 3 at most 4 sets for big muscles and 2 for smaller ones on each day.

    Attached is a bad picture with crappy lighting and my mac camera (relaxed) =p had to crouch down as I don't have room to back up too far from my office computer... but you get the gist of it.

    Looking lean man.

    Oh, and I can't sleep for **** when it's hot in my room, either. Impossible. I have a fan running even during winter.

    I haven't... I don't think I have done a typical cutting/bulking routine in awhile until this year. Perhaps I will give it a try after I acheive single digit bodyfat...
