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?

    1/22 145 lbs

    DIET: Got all my meals in and on time. Water intake was good.


    TRAINING: Chest-Strength was down a little, just coming back from being sick. Still, good intensity. Waking up late caused me to cut workout short. Best lift of the day: Weighted dips- Body+70lbsx 7 reps.


    Sleep- Went to bed late, but still had 8 1/2 hours because I woke up late. Get to bed earlier and wake up on time!!!


    Supplements- Took everything on time. Started taking Celltech. Fill finish tub and then maintain with met-rx micronized creatine.


    Overall- Everything went pretty well despite waking up late. I had to rush around a little, so I have to make the effort to wake up early. Wednesday is back workout, can't wait!

    1/26 147 lbs

    DIET: All meals were fine except for one meal, which became a cheat meal because I ran out of meat. I had 2 slices of pizza, but I had a whey shake, a multi vit./min. and about 20 oz. water with the meal. Meal 6 is coming shortly. Water intake was good.


    TRAINING: Delts and Triceps- Delts went well, felt a little weak on tris. Best lift of the day- Military press 120x7.


    SLEEP: Got a little over 9 hours last night. Much better!


    SUPPLEMENTS: Took them all except for the MRP and glutamine coming up soon.


    Overall- Didn't work today, so was kind of lazy. Guess laying around eating is good for my recovery. Still sore from the deads!

    DIET: Weekends will now be controlled cheating days(not too overboard, not too strict). I will consume 4,000+ calories on Sat. and Sun. and then go back to clean, strict eating Mon-Fri.

    That being said, I was slightly over 4,000 on Sat. and slightly under today. Water was over a gallon both days.


    TRAINING: Rest days


    SLEEP: 10 hrs Fri night. Only 4 last night(had work early)


    Overall: Feels good to eat freely. Wish I slept more last night. Getting to bed soon.

    2/1

    DIET: OK, I am friggin ****ed. My first two meals went fine today and then when I went to go eat my third meal, I found out that the friggin cleaning people at my work threw out my 3rd and 4th meals along with my water bottle. I then had to rush over to the deli and get a sandwich. For my fourth meal I ate a protein bar. So basically, I still kept my protein and calories high, I was just ****ed I went through the trouble to cook all that food and then they threw it out. Meals 5 and 6 were fine and since I'm up late and can sleep in tomorrow, I'm about to have a seventh meal. Water was good.


    TRAINING: Rest day


    SLEEP: Had 9 hours last night.


    SUPPLEMENTS: Took all my supplements.


    Overall: Got by ok, despite the lunch incident. Physched for tomorrow's workout!


    Goals: If back feels fresh, will deadlift 300 for at least 6 reps. If not, will do modified back routine w/out deads.

    SLEEP: I slept for 9 hours last night.


    SUPPLEMENTS: Took all supplements. Bought another container of Cell tech, so will continue using that. Also purchased flaxseed oil, so I will begin taking that.

    2/05 150 lbs

    DIET: Started my new diet today. It was a lot of food, but I did it. I woke up late, so my postworkout and meal 1 were too close. I dropped the oatmeal with meal 1 because of this. Other than that diet was right on! Meal 6 is coming shortly. Water intake was over 2 gallons. Can't wait to grow from this!


    TRAINING: Started new split today also. Today was Delts, triceps,abs. Had a good workout. Best lifts of the day: Military press 125x6, close-grip bench 145x7. Next week, use same weight on military, but increase reps. Increase weight on close-grip.


    SLEEP: Had 8.5 hours last night. Went to bed too late, then slept late. Get to bed earlier on Sundays!


    SUPPLEMENTS: Took all supplements. Added flaxseed oil today.


    Overall: Good day. High energy! Can't wait to see where diet takes me!

    2/7

    DIET: Took down five meals, 6th is coming shortly. Water intake was good.


    TRAINING: After realizing that the split I wrote up was not so good I adjusted it. It will now be- Mon-Chest, delts, triceps, Wed-thighs, biceps, calves, Fri- Back, grip, abs. I will be squatting one week, deadlifting the next. Today I did thighs and biceps. I used 185 for 2 sets of 5 on the squat focusing on form. I used 70lbs for 5,5,5 reps done in "21's" fashion for bb curls.


    SLEEP: Only got 6.5 hours last night.


    SUPPLEMENTS: I missed my first serving of my Multi, other than that everything was taken.


    Overall- Good, quick workout. Got all those calories down. Looking forward to progressing on new training split.

    2/9 151 lbs

    DIET: Not very good. Slept in late, calories were low. I have a cold and my appetite was low. I'm going to have to force myself to eat more tomorrow. The next 2 days are rest days, so hopefully I'll be back and running on Monday!(well, not actually running, but you know what I mean).


    TRAINING: Today was Back, grip, abs. I had a damn good workout, even though I feel pretty crappy. I got 6 reps with 175 on bb rows. On wide-grip chins I got 4 reps w/ a 45 lb plate strapped on. I followed that up with a set of 11 reps of just bodyweight. I used 90 lb db's for 17 reps on shrugs. Hung from the chin bar with 135 strapped to me(for grip).


    SLEEP: Slept late. Got over 10 hours of sleep.


    SUPPLEMENTS- Took all supplements. Took extra Vit. c again.


    Overall- Good workout! I hate feeling sick though. Hopefully I'll feel better tomorrow.

    DIET: Ran out of food today. Went to the deli on my lunch break and bought a few sandwiches. Still took in enough calories, just not my usual meals. Water intake was fine.


    TRAINING: Rest day


    SLEEP: Had over 7.5 hours of sleep last night.


    SUPPLEMENTS: Took all supplements.


    Overall-Glad I kept calories high despite running out of food.


    Goals- Go heavier on front squats(just started them). Get to the food store in the morning and buy food! Get more reps out with 70 lbs in the "21's" fashion on bb curls!
