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?

    So, you Want to Run and be Strong

    I'm going to give the log thing a try. I've re-introduced running back to my programming since we will be having a PT Test twice a year at work, so I can't let my running slack off. I came from a running background, so my running is coming back pretty fast, but disappointed that I can't run the mile in 6 minutes anymore (currently at 06:30), so that is my goal. So far, I haven't lost any strength since I started running again, so I'm happy.

    My programming is a hybrid Westside Conjugate combined with running 4 times per week. I learned the Westside from Rick Scarpulla at Ultimate Advantage and I learned how to add the running wih the help of Alex Viada. So far, I actually put on weight, which is something I wanted go do. My diet is basically Paleoish all day and post workout, I slam the carbs and protein. I try to keep the post workout carbs pretty clean with rice, bananas, or sweet potatoes, but I go a little dirty on e in a while.

    Here is my schedule:

    Day 1:
    1. ME Upper.
    2. Accessory.
    3. Assistance.
    4. 1 Mile Recovery Run.

    Day 2:
    1. Rest.

    Day 3:
    1. ME Lower.
    2. Accessory.
    3. Assistance.
    4. Speed Intervals (8x100, 6x200,4x400, or 2x800 meter runs).

    Day 4:
    1. Core Circuit.

    Day 5:
    1. DE Upper.
    2. Accessory.
    3. Assistance.
    4. 1-3 Mile Pace Run (I started with 1 mile and once I get it under 6 minutes, I'll add another lap and maintain that pace and keep adding laps while keeping that 6 minute pace.).

    Day 6:
    1. Rest.

    Day 7:
    1. DE Lower.
    2. Accessory.
    3. Assistance.

    Day 8:
    1. 30-60 minute Long Slow Run.

    Have my second PL meet in January and run a 5K sometime next year.

    Strength Numbers:
    Squat: 295#
    Bench: 225#
    Deadlift: 385#
    Bodyweight: 170-ish
