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?

    If he were trudging miles in full gear with heavy boots on, enduring hard weather conditions, and learning how to shoot a gun, I'd say it's a military program. That looks like a strictly endurance program, not what you want unless a runner has your idea of a "good physique".

    PS- sprinters are not runners. They are something beyond.

    hey guys there are other things then moving really big weights or looking good that are important. I'd respect a Navy Seal more than Ronnie Coleman or Ed Coan. Shamrock if you want to be a Seal go straigt to it. I thought you were going to join UFC though, what happened to that?
    Chris Mason is my master.....

    American cars are like fat people, sure, they have a lot of power, but they're not built well, and they have all that useless weight, plus they make both make funny noises.

    feel free to aim me, nejar462 im on a lot. Don't know much to warn you dudes, but im good at conversations.

    Seal programs are designed to make a person used to physical punishment, mental punishment as well. All of the big muscles in the world don't matter when everyone is armed with grenades and machine guns, but being able to keep going at your opponent regardless of conditions is the difference between fodder and a great soldier.

    that program still looks light endurance or not.

    do you have to do this ? or can you do somthing else, or can you do more ?

    I find that with those bodyweight exercises, they can be done endlessly. if you can do 6x30 pushups, more than likely you can do 6x100.

    I'm with the rest of the guys, the program looks like "CAKE," nothing that you shouldn't beable to do. Looking at you, you already are ahead of the game. But with that program bodybuilding is an activity that is on the backburner.

    Did you read his post, numbnuts?

    He wants to look good. He said that was his goal. Now get down off that soapbox before you hurt yourself.

    Maybe I missed something, but in the first post he said it was recommended preparation for the school to which he will be going(Which again, must be some sort of military academy or something.) I didn't really see him mention that looking good was his goal or that he really even had much choice in the matter(If he want to be prepared, that is.) He just seemed curious as to what effects the program would have on his body. Could be wrong, though.

    It seemed from his physique question "Will i have a good physique after i doo all this. My photo is my Avatar. What does everyone think."
    that he was wondering about the effects of this program, and whether or not it'll improve his body. He didn't outline any particular goals, so perhaps I misinterpreted. But Nejar was making a value judgement about what's important. K.S. didn't say that he wanted to be huge, nor did he say he wanted to be a SEAL.

    Here is the link to the SEAL PT Program . This is the Category I routine. Down at the bottom is the link to Category II for when you complete the first nine weeks.

    This is an endurance routine, and a great one to do for military PRT preparation. But I would not call it "cake". I basically finished cat II (except I slacked on the running). I can do bodyweight pushups and situps (20x20, 20x25) until the cows come home. But don't assume for a minute that if you can do 20x20 that you can do 4x100. I will give a gold star to anyone here than can do 4x100 while adhering to the guidelines of this routine. Namely, the only rest you get from pushups is situps and vice versa, plus at no point can anything besides your hands and toes touch the ground for pushups... that means no butt in the air. The most I could do at my last PRT was 84 pushups in about 1.5 minutes and 114 situps in 2 minutes. But there are plenty of folks here that are in a lot better condition than me.

    As mentioned earlier, this is geared to assist a person in coming home in the morning after a mission. The goal is to carry 60 lbs of ammo and equipment for a day rather than 260 lbs of equipment for 2 minutes.

    To answer your questions: if the school recommends it, then more likely then not they recommend it for a reason. Trust them. Judging by your picture, you should have no problem. If you have never swimmed distance before, it will take a few weeks for your lungs to play catch-up, which is why the swimming starts off at low minutes. Military PRT (physical readiness test). You will likely lose size.
