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?

    Allright. so here's the deal. In honour of my one year anniversary of weight lifting i am recristening my journal- "Round 2".

    Self accessment of year one.

    Sh!t man what a difference a year makes. When i started lifting last april i was a plump 195 with a little muscle but not much. Diet- horrible. TV dinners, microwave food, fast food, burgars, fries, pizza hut, cheese steaks.... Had just quit smoking jan 18 after 9 years. Haven't had one since. Don't even want one. I remember my first time working out. Was benching 115 to failure. gained @70 lbs there. Couldn't do a single chin but now can do 3 sets to 7. OH press has doubled. Damn those beginning gains are tremendous and really motivating. I must say though for about 4 months (Sep-Dec) i was seriously overtraining. Gains stopped and i was dead tired all the time. After i stopped overtraining (and found WBB.com) i relaxed the sets and upped the intensity. Strength in all parts of body is much greater. Body feels better. Gains are happening.

    Tried to put a high cal diet together of clean food there at the beginning that put on about 10-15 lbs (up to 205) but at 22% bf. after a few months. Blah... I was all puffy in the face and belt was tight during the holidays.
    Miss Abs turned me onto NHE after some research i did on a new diet. I'd say i'm really happy thus far. I used the fat loss diet originally and dropped 25 lbs in about 8 wks and maintained good strength. Then i switched to the NHE cyclical massing diet (basicly a cyclical high fat diet). I don't think i was eating enough before though as i wasn't counting my cals/day. Now i am.

    New year
    I will continue the NHE massing at least for two more months at which time i'll reaccess my progress. This will involve a diet of at least 3500 cals/day

    overall diet plan
    down days 1,2,3, 5, 6
    pro. 200-250 g fat 290g (>80% unsat) carb 30g
    23% 74% 3%
    up day 4, 7
    (meals 1-4)
    pro 160 g fat 160 g carbs <20g
    (meals 5-6)
    pro 40 g fat <30g carbs 400g (no sucrose)

    all down meals will aim for
    pro 40-50g fat 45 g active carbs 3-4

    up meals
    pro 20 g fat <20 carbs 200g
    (up meals are always taken w/ 10 g creatine+10g glutamine)

    more to come tonight. time to eat. tuna steak mmmm,

    sun may 7

    leg row for 5

    squat bx15, 115 x10, 155x6, 185x4, 215x5
    185 x9, 9, 7
    concentrated here on dropping weight for higher reps as i feel my back has not caught up to my legs. Feels like back is failing premature. Also, wanting to make sure this not an issue of form so i'll stick to failing at 9-12 squats until form is rock solid

    Leg pr
    225x11
    250 x4

    sldl 245x6, x6 here to may drop weight as i saw back was slightly rounded during last few reps

    squat. machine
    x12, 90x8 supset w/ calves 2 sets
