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?

    Been a bit lazy about logging lately. also been lazy on training. But I'm still hitting powerlifts once in a while, did 491x5 deadlift the other day, 265x4 bench, and today I squat 365x3, 405x1, 405x1, 365x3 then hit bench 225x6/8/6, weighted pull ups 2x5x45, pendlay rows 3x5x185, side raises 3x12x25s, then headed out of there. Felt squat in my outer sweep a lot and bench in my chest a lot, which was good . Forearms were really sore a few days ago glad they're growing, though getting less vascular even though I'm not getting fatter.

    Hit deads n bench today. Got 466x8 on deads which I believe is a PR. Then hit bench, 225x8 then 260 for 3 paused singles, then 275 for a failed pause single. LEgs cramped which fucked it up. oh well. Then some other BS lifts. Gym is closed on monday but I"ll get back on my tried and true routine after this week, starting next sunday. Sure it's more stressful and more of a pain in the ass, and less fun, but it builds discipline.

    Hit some squats today, 365x6 which is a PR I'm pretty sure. Funny that I'm training like an idiot nowadays and still getting PRs haha. Did pull ups BWx10/10/11 and 3 sets of calf raises as well, then went to mma. Been really lazy about everything lately, but I made it to mma yesterday and busted my ass, got some crazy boxing practice when we did round robin, 4 1 minute rounds back to back after doing some other hard cardio stuff, I almost threw up but felt like a fucking beast. Then today I went up against someone who was really good, he got me with a traingle choke but I got him with a kimura next round. Surprised that I managed to submit somebody that good, especially being rusty.

    Super sleep deprived right now though can't wait to knock out for 8 hours tonight.

    Decided to start logging again to keep myself accountable. Been bullshitting for a while, more focused on girls and school than lifting, but now that I've got a girlfriend who lifts I'm shifting that focus back to the gym. I was bullshitting with some light weight focus on the contraction type training, which definitely has good elements, but I decided to go back to the basics instead of a bodybuilding type go by feel routine which was getting me nowhere, even backwards. Got tooth surgery and got really badly sick from a meningitis vaccine which lost me about 3 weeks total of gym time, so my lifts have dropped a bit, namely my squat, idk what my deadlift is at, but it's time to get consistent again. Im lifting Sun/Tues/Thurs and boxing Mon/Weds (MMA). Been a while but I'm glad to be excited about lifting again instead of seeing it as a chore. School was draining my energy and enthusiasm but 2 weeks ago I discovered the magic of coffee and positive thinking.

    Commentary about the workout: I discovered last week that pullovers are the sacrament of the lifter, seriously the best movement ever for the upper body that I wasn't doing. I wrote them in for 3 times a week but I"ll probably just do them twice. My routine is pretty simple and founded around the basic compound lifts, which have always worked for me, and the frequency is low enough that lifting combined with mma and school wont burn me out like it did last quarter. I'm already looking much better. I've finally realized that training like im on steroids (high reps, barely emphasis on strength, high carb high protein low fat) while I'm natural is stupid. There are elements that are positive but I'm going back to what has worked.

    I tried 2 new things for db inclines today, doing bb and chins first, which was good pre fatigue, and touching the dbs at the top, which made the contraction much more powerful and even, but the weight was much harder. Also learned that my calf ROM wasn't as good as I thought but I'll play around with different shit. I'm training them 3x/week afterall. Can't think of any more commentary but I'm glad to be excited about lifting again, and logging will help maintain that. It's good to be back to being a lifter.
