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?

    Im 5'7 currently 168 goal is to hit about 200. I maybe should cut back on conditioning to get there quicker but i'd rather burn calories and earn the couple extra meals day. (7 right now) Plus I work a labor job so i'm on my feet all day moving around no need for steady state unless I feel like checking out an album or something.

    The lowest i've ever been was over summer where I was 148. But, I did conditioning over strength training for the most part. Now I take 2-3 complete days off with at least one day of some heavy duty conditioning.

    Rambled on a bit there.

    But, thanks man! Hopefully some video to come in the next couple cycles.

    Thanks man! No belt just chalk not bad for 168, lots of work to do still. Taking an off day tomorrow I rarely do steady state I work a warehouse job lifting and moving boxes all day. I used a pedometer to see how far and how many calories I burned I roughly walk 15 miles and burn 1,400 calories a day. Not exactly accurate but more a less an excuse to eat or drink that extra shake.

    Just got back from bench night had to rush which is always the worse due to ****ty nasty weather and my spotter not showing up, but nonetheless I pulled through and tried the best I could under the given circumstances.

    3 warm up sets

    followed by 3 work sets

    165 x 5, 175 x 3, 185 x 1 and for the hell of it 215 x 1

    all and all not to be bad before my first deload. I really need to hammer down my form bench is my weakest and most pathetic exercise. But, I will make it my best sometime soon and I will have alright numbers by my first competition whenever that maybe.

    My last night on my first cycle of 5/3/1 tonight was Squats, definitely hit a P.R. even being spotter free tonight.

    went a little like this

    225 x 3
    255 x 3
    265 x 5
    275 x 3
    280 x 2

    315 is gonna be mine!

    followed by more squats, Good Mornings, 10 x 5 Pullups second pause on the last one on the last two sets.

    and I hit some conditioning since I've been lazy as **** all week. So I did jump rope and burpee tabatas. Im wondering if running up a snowy hill without cleats is gonna be a bad idea. should I pass it up? more conditioning? or chill the whole weekend and chill for the deload.

    I like to call it the chomping at the bit week personally. I'm ready to attack the weights with furious anger. The Iron is the only drug you ever need.

    I had a very epic cheat meal last night. It was my friends college graduation party and they were Italian so you know how THAT goes. I had about 8 lean sausages, eggplant parm, chicken parm not deep fried though, spaghetti squash, and a lot of scallops, canoli's, and shrimp. I had 3-4 giant plates. Not too bad but I think im gonna smash some PR's this week
