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?

    2012 Training

    I've had a solid year of weight lifting under my belt, now I'm getting more serious about lifting. For the bulk of 2011, I was stuck at 130 lbs body weight, which was fine, because I wanted to compete in powerlifting at 60kg. I've decided I'd be a lot better and I'd have a lot more fun lifting if I was bigger, and therefore, stronger. Starting 2012, I'm 150 lbs, my max bench press is currently 225, max squat, 225, and max deadlift is 365. This is mostly for me to track how much my lifts change this year since I'm going to keep trying to gain weight, hopefully an extra 35 lbs between muscle and a bit of fat. My goals for this year are to get a 315+ squat, 405+ deadlift, and a 275+ bench press.

    Your tattoo is outrageous, but you probably know that already, lol.

    Good luck with your goals Kyle.

    Thank you, Coke, it's a memorial to my mother who passed away from a heart attack. It will be exactly 1 year tomorrow since her passing.

    Thanks also for the positive encouragement.

    I'm very sorry to hear that. It's a work of art, for sure. And I generally hate tattoos.

    Well that makes it even better. Since it's kinda hard to see in a picture, up top it says "with the touch of your hand" and on the bottom right, it says "I am whole again" with the hands from the Michelangelo painting on the sistne chapel that symbolize God giving life to Adam, the first man.

    Felt really good after that. I'm interested to see how much weight I've gained. I haven't checked my bodyweight in a week, and I'm going to check it one week from today. I've been drinking a gallon of milk a day and I haven't been skipping meals. The gallon of milk per day has actually expanded my stomach, making it easier for me to be able to eat a lot more solid foods without getting full, plus the 120 grams of protein from the milk, and the ~2.4k calories

    I gotta say, the program Westside for Skinny Bastards is one of the greatest things that's ever happened to me. I was doing all of the exercises, but a different rep scheme entirely. I've gained 12 pounds in 7 weeks on this program.

    Nick Tuminnellos upper body warm up (I'm definitely going to be doing this more often!)

    Bench (back to flat bench)
    135 x 5
    175 x 4
    185 x 4
    205 x 5 (pr)

    Incline bench 135
    3 x 10

    Pull up
    3 x 9

    High row machine (two 45's each side)
    2 x 8

    Ab cable crunch 85 lbs
    3 x 15

    T bar row 70 lb
    2 x 12

    DB bicep curl 35
    2 x 8
