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?

    Headache's Training Log!

    Whats up guys I figured since most people on here have a journal I might as well start one myself to get the most feedback possible. Started lifting when I was 18 on and off been steady for close to two years now. Started out weighing 118lbs now I sit at 183lbs(10/19/2011). My routine as of now is pretty basic I did a couple runs of sheiko37 which shot my lifts up tremendously, so for now I'm keeping it simple until I decide on what I'd like to do next. PLEASE give me feedback on my training so I can improve thanks for looking!
    5'8 195lbs(5/4/12) start weight 118lbs.

    I think I ask this in every journal, but what are your goals when it comes to your training?

    Mass, strength, and big numbers in all three lifts and hopefully to compete at some point when my lifts are up to par.

    Legs 11/9/11

    Due to conflicting schedules my partner and I had to bump legs up a couple days in the rotation. Todays squats went like this
    50% 5Х1,60% 4Х1,70% 3Х2,80% 3Х2, 85% 2Х3, taken from the sheiko routine. It may seem like alot of volume but given the success I've had implementing peices of the sheiko into my routines and the routine in itself I threw it in. PLUS we wont be squating again until next friday so it gives plenty of time for recovery.

    5 minute walk, 5 minutes on the bike.
