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?

    Goal - Lard Ass to Elite - Luigi's attempt at powerlifting


    I'm back in the gym. Not that any of you care, but I didn't know how to start this post. You see I used to train. I did so semi-successfully. There are actually people on this forum who I've trained with that can vouge for that. I used to keep a log too, so my history is out in the open.

    The problem was I became bored and disenchanted with training. My partners left (not that I was strong enough to train with them any way). My gym became a mecca for idiot meatheads, and even supider powerlifters and bodybuilders. So I left there. I did join another gym closer to my house, but that place was even worse, but for other reasons. So I stopped training. Terrible, but it was what it was.

    So after spending the last two years watching my family, and my belly grow, and moving from NYC to Pennsylvania, I've decided enough was enough.

    So here I am.

    I do have a plan this time. Not that I didn't have a plan the last time, but like most people who train and read these forums I did a lot of "research" on training and decided to try something new every 2 weeks. Not the best Idea.

    So my plan is such; Starting Strength to get back in to training shape, then a volume based intermediate plan such as the Texas Method and the 5/3/1 until those no longer work. That's it. Probably not going to be the most exciting thing to read, but I know nobody will care, or post, until my squat is somewher in the 400lb range anyway. Then it will get more exciting.

    Next post will be my first few sessions.
