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?

    Meals so far are on time except post workout because I got out of the gym later then expected. 2 Meals to go... rice and salmon yum!! Worked out chest/shoulder/tri

    Strength went up on both flat and incline db. Went up 5 lpbs on each hand which felt good. Other lifts are about the same but maybe an added rep or two. I know I can lift more intensely than what I put out today, but I guess I just gotta pound myself in the head and push that weight with all my might. See ya tomorrow!

    Off day, to both rest and grow. Had about 8 1/2 hours sleep last night, hopefully I get a little more tonight. It's kinda hard because I have so much to do before the day is through and I end up sleeping before I have time to finish all of what needs to be done just for the sake of sleeping. Food was off on the 2nd meal seems the clock in my 2nd period was off.. hehe missed meal by about 20 minutes =\ every other meal was on time. Training Back/Bi's
    tomorrow. Water is about a gallon 1/2 - 2 so far. One more meal to go!

    Friday January 26

    Some people could be the biggest jerks.. I come out of the gym and dont suspect a thing but driving home and getting some food, but when I open my door I look at the passanger window and some dumb asses shattered it. Now Im thinking what dumb F*** would do such a stupid thing for no reason? Ok just had to get that out of my system for the 100000 time. I worked Back/Bi's today

    All my lifts for back went up but I am still failing to progress much in the Bi department. I guess I'm not hitting them hard enough, Well have to try next week.

    Sleep was good about 9 + hours which is very very good thing. I am trying my hardest to sleep as early as possible.

    Diet went good except for 1 meal sort of substituted a steak I was supposed to have for some barbeque and fish my parents brought home =] other then that RIGHT ON! water was good. Weekend was made for resting. Time to grow!

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    Trained back/bi's today, I went in a little exhausted because I came straight from practice for a show we are doing. Well strength was up a bit, but I think I could have lifted more if I waited a bit, but I guess I just wanted to lift then and there.

    Diet was a little hectic, I guess today is someone of a cheat day, but I am just trying to eat as much as I can, mostly clean though. Water was good had about 7 litres so far, tomorrow time for church and relaxation.

    wow forgot to update this thing guess life kept me busy...

    monday: did chest/shoulders/tris

    i incorporated incline flies into my routine and I like it alot i feel they isolate my chest more. My flat db press went up but my reps on incline went down because I gave it my all on the flat bench. Diet and sleep were both good.

    Wednsday: legs

    My squat remained the same... I dont know why I was progressing good till this week, My leg press and my sldl both went up though. Diet and sleep was good again

    Today:

    woke up and had breakfast, went to the gym to do back/bi's and I had a real good workout. My back, bis, forearms are sore. Ate tons of food and drank tons of water. One more meal then its off to hit the hay

    Well yesterday I trained chest/shoulder/tri's I tried doing a lower volume.. I didnt feel I need flat presses so I dropped them and change my chest routine to 3 sets of incline flies and 3 sets of incline db press, 2 sets military press 2 sets lateral raise, 2 sets skull crushers and 2 sets press downs. I will see how this works and make adjustments if necessary. Food and water was good the whole day and got about 8 hrs of sleep.

    TOday was a rest day to grow and just eat. Diet and water was good hope to get about 8 - 8.5 hours of sleep tonight, I will update tomorrow after my leg workout

    Eat, sleep, train hard in that order

    Trained mah legs today! I don't know why but I feel leg press more in my quads then I do squats... thats just me. My squat isnt progressing as it used to be and I think I am stuck at a weight hopefully be out of it in a week or two. For some reason while performing calf raises my lower back started to hurt, guess its all the pressure or am I just using bad form? Well all my lifts went up and food is plentiful. I am sorta getting sick of eating =o Well tomorrow is a rest day then I will work back/bi on friday. I am looking to change my routine by next week so look out!

    Things are progresing fine as of today I am now 180 lpbs without much or if any an increase in bodyfat. Thing is training is slowing a little and the poundages arent go as up as I had hoped for. I also have something on the 7th that I would like to look good for, but at the same time I don't want to stop bulking so if I am gonna start dieting for that I will decide by next monday.

    Training: Did Chest/shoulder/tri's I dropped sets and am doing 6 sets for chest 4 for shoulders and 4 for tris so its looking

    Flat DB bench 3x5-8
    Incline Fly 3x5-8

    Military Press 2x5-8
    Side Lateral 2x8

    Skull Crusher 1x8 2x whatever I can get up with a 5 lpb increase
    Pressdown 2x5-8

    Diet - I pretty much got the hang of my diet and havent been counting as I used to I just sorta know how much to eat and I eat it at that time. Water intake is good.

    Sleep is 8 hours and more if I ever get the time to sleep more!

    Waiting for my clen to come in. How long does it take to friggin ship from Europe to States!@!!!. Will see how much bodyfat has dropped this Sunday, I look a bit leaner, but still feel like a fat a**. I was thinking about doing keto for a week but not sure if I should.

    I am trying to compose a new routine to change things up a bit. As for lifting all my strength is going up. Except for my chest/delt/tri workout had someone what of a cold and wasnt feeling good. Would finish the set and my face would be burning up. Squats though on wednsday was good and weight went up 5 lpb and managed to get 3x8.

    Diet is good I lowered cals down to about 2100 calories still 40 protein 40 fat and 20 carb.

    Also in other news im gonna be going into the army =]
