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?

    didjital's journal

    well i guess this is the perfect time to start a journal of my own. i am 19 years old, and have lifted on and off all through high school. now i am in college, and am getting serious into lifting again.

    im currently ~160lbs, and 6'. all of my life i have had skinny legs, as you can see in this picture i took today. i just started my program yesterday.

    if you will look at this picture, you can see the i have wide shoulders, which make my legs look even smaller, lol.

    i will continue to update this so that you all can see my progress. this is very exciting for me!

    Joseph

    PS: i would also like to add that, from reading different sources, that my body type is a mesomorph. i can put on muscle easily when i dedicate myself, and stay at it. however, i have a very fast metabolism, so im learning to eat alot!

    good lad jo, its nice to see you putting a journal up, you have a decent starting frame, just keep the cals coming and lift, limit cardio and with your body type you should grow quite effectively. good luck!
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...

    tell me about it, im at university in the uk and the cafeteria, to be polite sucks! there's no healthy options. the best source of protein are the pints of milk. i ended up using my loan to buy 30lbs of whey to help me through part of the year. but luckily im back home for the summer and my food sources are endless.

    Nice pic, you must of had a sound program before now, cos your pretty well developed.

    thanks. well i had a night job which included throwing boxes around, which helped me get a little toned. i think the tonage is there due to my metabolism, i just need the muscle.

    currently im looking for a new routine because i think my current one is not going to work. ie: legs twice a week....

    my arm is already healing thank God.

    anyways, this is what i did for the first week:

    monday:
    3 x 10 incline bench
    3 x 10 flat bench

    tuesday:
    4 x 10 leg press
    4 x 10 hamstring curls (one leg at a time)
    4 x 10 leg extensions (one leg at a time)
    3 x 20 seated calf raises

    wednesday:
    3 x 10 lat pulldowns
    3 x 10 rows

    thursday:
    off due to 4th of july

    4 x 10 hamstring curls (one leg at a time)
    4 x 10 leg extensions (one leg at a time)
    3 x 20 seated calf raises

    obviosuly this kinda routine is not going to work...simply from looking at it. i also just started my program on monday, so im looking for a goof program to build mass.

    What you would do is,
    do one exercise and when you finish your last rep you would do the next exercise without rest right away.

    You'll have to experiment at first to find your working weights.

    ok i am a poor college student. the cafeteria here at school during the summer only serves chickfala, and sometimes cooks real food. here is basically what my diet consists of during the day:

    ~11:00am : wake up

    12:00pm: chickfala chicken sandwich, 2 granola bars, poweraid

    class

    02:30pm: bottle of water

    class

    07:00pm: another chicken sandwich, poweraide, 2 granola bars

    ~08:00pm: can of tuna, bottled water/milk

    ~10:00pm: usually go to taco cabana and get a beef fajita meal.

    im also supplementing protein and creatine.

    riiiiiiiight, so i just gotta get through this summer, and in the fall the cafeteria will serve real food!

    basically, whenever i get hungry, i eat tuna or a peanutbutter sandwich on whole weat bread. i know that i am not eating as much as i should be, due to the selection of food, and the hours in which the cafeteria is open during the summer. what to do, what to do......

    God is in the details.

    its a tough question, the most important aspect is calories make sure you are getting enough of these, otherwise protein consumed will have little effect on your size.

    you could do with some food in between 12pm and 7pm thats a long time without supplies, make up some kind of meal replacement if you don't have time, consisting of milk, banana, peanut butter etc... diet is probably 70% linked to success IMO, since ive got back from uni ive been able to plan my nutrition and now im starting to grow, alright im not that big yet, but im definately improving.
    The only limits are the one's you place on yourself...
