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?

    BIGNIC AND GETFIT's Wrestling Journal

    Well due to several reasons ive fallen out of the competition i was going to enter. Now my plan is to do a lean bulk until late july or august when i should be shipping off to basic. My plan for this bulk is to take in around 4000 calories and around 200 grams of protein. My workouts will be random as usual but im going to try to stay at a lil lower reps than usual also. Current stats are

    Ht 5-07
    Wt 162lbs

    I dont really know any of my measurements. My best lifts are 285x1 on bench. 315x6 on deadlifts. And 315x8 on squat. My deadlift and squat is prolly better but i havent really pushed mysdelf enough on them.

    Goals for this journal is to get to around 170 while maintaining low bf. Later on id liek to bulk to around 200. Ill start posting my diet tomorow and ill posdt my workout today later on.

    well my legs are ****ing sore. Those squas yesterday tore my quads up. I was really in the mood to lift today, so i figured itd be a good day to go light, and try some sumo squats. This is the first time ive ever done work sets with sumos and i think im gonna start doing these instead of conv. deads. I like the feel of these better and i feel they hit my hams, lower back and traps better. Altho im currently not as strong as i am on conv. im sure ill get the sumos up there. Its important to me that all my compound lifts hit as much of my body as possible since im using so few excercises in this new routine. Next week ill try to go up to 275 for sets of 8

    Sumo Deads
    135x8
    205x8
    225x8
    225x8
    225x8

    EZ Bar Curls
    75x8
    85x8
    95x8
    95x8 little cheat on last one

    Crunches
    2x25


    nice short workout

    That's some nasty weight you're putting up for CGBP. I can't believe you made all those gains whlie on a cut too. The weights are gonna fly up now that you're bulking. I'm gonna keep a close eye on this journal... this is sick ****.
