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?

    God your at it in here as well

    'm going to be taking the rest of the week off as a deload. Several reasons for this include: I've been putting a lot of time on the forum getting my admin stuff sorted out, making changes to the forums and doing the newsletter. I'm fighting a nasty cold that reared it's ugly head yesterday


    Nah only kidding mate, hope you get well soon buddy

    My Cavs are looking horrendous right now. If I were to make a defense for the coach, when your team is bad you sometimes have to play your "other" guys to see who is made to really play and who isn't, but I'd say you don't play the majority of your 2nd string, but Landy isn't anything to scoff at for an undersized big man.

    The Kings should definitely be better than what they are. A lot of talent, but a lot of losses piling up. The Clippers are going through the same things, maybe it's a California thing?

    Thanks for checking in everyone...

    I'm on the mend after being down for two days with the CRUD. Maybe my deload came a week too late?

    I miss checking out all your journals and I'll be back to them soon. Now, back to bed

    thanks Kiff, and Merry Christmas to all my WBB freinds.

    I am now completely over my nasty cold/flu but probably won't start working out until next week. Going to just rest and eat for a few more days.

    Finally...

    High Incline Seated Press

    75 lbs x 5
    90 lbs x 5
    110 lbs x 5
    125 lbs x 3
    145 lbs x 3
    165 lbs x 3

    215 lbs x 1, 1, 1

    110 lbs - 5 (sets) x 10 (reps)

    Weighted Pull-Ups

    +5 lbs x 20 singles

    Notes:
    It felt great to be back in the garage and lifting some iron. I didn't want to go crazy my first day back, so I kept everything pretty moderate. The presses felt really good and the singles weren't close to a max, just good hard reps. The pull-ups are hard and I start losing ROM as I progress in the reps. But strangely, the last few were pretty good again as my speed increased. I used absolutely no kipping or any body english at all. Just good solid form with no cheating.

    Obviously I'm back on the 5/3/1 (actually it's 3/5/1). Being sick made me think a lot. The thing I hated most about being sick was being weak and winded. I really didn't care that I looked like shat, I just hated being weak. So, I think that down deep I long for great strength as opposed to having a good physique. So, back to strength training I go for good, and hopefully the physique will contine to grow along the way...

    Great first workout back mate.

    I struggle like hell with pullups. Been doing lots of bodyweight exercises over the xmas period cos couldn't go down to gym (a) was shut, b) my back was hurting still).

    Been using pullup bar and can only do about 6 chins in a row and 5 lat pullups.

    Gonna keep trying them to see if I progress. Think gonna get rid of lat pulldowns now and just focus on pullups.

    I did that routine before and it worked GREAT! And that's what I'm currently doing right now.
