The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Definitely!

    Just finished my move to Georgia. It's humid as hell here, but at least I won't have dry skin... I'm stoked because the gym at the hospital is actually awesome - they even have one more squat rack than my "real" gym back in CLT. Best of all, it's $20 per month.

    July 3 was light bench - did 5x5 with 225 that was too easy.

    Light squats
    warmup x3
    275 x5
    275 x5
    275 x5
    275 x4
    275 x3
    275 x3
    225 x4
    then BB skullcrushers and some leg extensions.

    275 started getting heavy at set 4, which I really don't care because technically my light days consist of 75% of my 1RM, which should be just 250. I just felt like I wanted heavier.

    New chapter in my life, gents. Start the new job Monday!

    Thanks, bros. I got a new ED job at the big hospital in Savannah... have my first shift tomorrow, eep!

    ME bench
    warmup x4
    275 x1
    295 x1
    310 x miss
    225 x8
    followed by smith incline bench, DB front raises, DB skullcrushers, and machine preacher curlz

    Got about a third of the way up and got stuck on 310, but it's all good. Wasn't expecting much today since I've been fucking around at the beach for the past few days and not eating enough. I love it out here in GA so far. 20 minute ride to the beach here is priceless. People are incredibly friendly. Hell, you can even walk around with a beer in your hand in downtown. Really cool place to be!

    Thanks, guys! Was a great first day. They ease us into the job for a few months, so no pressure. Love it. Also started seeing a pretty lady, so that makes things even better, lol.

    ME squat
    warmup x4
    315 x1
    325 x1
    340 x1
    315 x2
    225 x5
    and then did some curl jockey stuff

    Very happy to still be increasing the squat. Hopefully will continue to make gains once I start eating well.

    BB rows:
    warmup x4
    225 x6
    235 x5
    245 x5
    185 x10
    followed by rope cable rows, DB side laterals, face pulls

    Yesterday was bench:
    warmup x4
    275 x2
    275 x3
    275 x3
    225 x10
    then some Smith machine incline bench, DB front delt stuff, and skull crushers

    Thanks, fellas!

    Squats yesterday:
    warmup x4
    275 x5
    275 x5
    275 x5
    275 x3
    275 x3
    225 x5
    followed by leg presses, leg extensions, and some tricep and traps work.

    There was a 10 year old kid attempting to bench press for the first time yesterday by himself. Saw him over there and basically took 20 minutes to teach him how to properly do the exercise. Felt like I did my good deed for the day.

    Not quite sure, bro. You just get used to it. I've literally seen hundreds of them, and unfortunately for not the right reasons
    Ok..I was lurking and I know this is old, but..

    Outside of assault or extraction of some kind of foreign object, what exactly can go so wrong with a vagina that constitutes an ER visit, and more specifically an ER visit after-hours??

    And does hundreds of vagina inspections ruin it for you when you're inspecting one for the "right reasons"?
