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?

    Tom183's Journal

    Alright, I figured it's about time I started a journal on here.

    Stats:

    24 (25 this month)
    6'2
    100kg (220lbs)
    14% BF (estimate)



    Current routine:

    Day 1

    Squat
    Dips
    Front Squat
    Skull Crushers

    Day 2

    Bench Press
    Bent Over Row
    Incline Dumbell Press
    Single Arm Row

    Day 3

    Chin-ups
    OHP
    Curls
    Lateral raises
    Deadlift

    This routine has been working well and i dont see it changing in the near future.

    Currently bulking. Hoping to get to 238lb as lean as possible then re-evaluate. I've been to 230/231 twice before but was unhappy with my bodyfat percentage both times so this time I'm determined to do it slower and more carefully.

    ^--Cheers GazzyG. It still somewhat catches me by surprise when I get called big. I was a skinny kid all through high school and even into my early 20's.

    Unhappy with my pressing today but I can't say I expected much better as I had only given myself half the amount of time to recover from dips that I normally do. Unfortunately commitments over the weekend left me with no other option.
