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?

    Meet Week

    Due to boredom from a lack of training this week for an upcoming meet, I decided to generate some traffic with a topic that hits home to all fellow PLers.

    What does everyone else do during their meet week? Handle diet, cutting? Thought process, mental prep? Prevent yourself from going crazy? lol

    I usually train on my normal days, but it's super light and easy.

    If I am cutting then I focus on that.

    I have a pretty busy home/work schedule as it is so I almost always have something else to distract me.

    I do my normal routine only less volume and much lighter....... I try to eat foods that I know agree with me, get lots of sleep, and just relax.
    Just like getting ready for a heavy day in the gym..... maybe just some distilled water to shed a few pounds on the last day or two if I need to.

    I train and do cardio all the way up except for Friday. I just keep it light. I used to not train in the past. My resulfts are much better training and keeping busy. Diet all depends on where I am as far as making weight.


    Supplements I currently take: Nitrean , BCAA , Creatine 500 , Multi-Plus , Fish Oil

    yea i do two quick workouts up to a few doubles at 70%. usually make sure im gettin 8 hours+ sleep and plenty of water for the eventual cut. the worst part of the week by far is going to the grocery store and seeing all the food when ur near weighins and cant eat anything fun lol. like getting some walking in as well to keep the legs fresh. i absolutely hate 2 hour weighins but i try to make sure i spend as little time as possible below my target weight which makes recouping before warming up a lot easier.

    I couldn't imagine doing a 2-hour weigh in...... more power to you for being able to do it...... that 24 hours after weigh ins is like my favorite time of year...... all those weeks of avoiding buffets and sweets made up for in 24 hours.....

    I do my bench and squat warmups on Monday, along with a few pullups and dips, just to keep the neurons firing. From Wednesday on, I'm usually cutting weight and trying not to let my resultant pissy mood ruin my relationships .
