The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Haven't been posting for awhile been so busy with work. Snow storm had me out of school and haven't been able to lift. No cardio either, definitely fell off the wagon this last week. Going to get back into everything tomorrow though for good. Hopefully hitting legs tomorrow and might throw in some shoulders, also going to try and get a hard cardio session in as well.

    So I have decided to start a 12 week diet plan. I'll still do mainly my own workouts but different cardio splits and eating better. Pretty excited actually!

    Today i really didn't have a set workout, hit the legs decently and then did some burnout of the triceps and did a could bench sets of max effort. Overall good day though. No cardio today though.

    Weighed in today at 216.7 so hopefully i see that number drop soon.

    This week will be messed up because our coach is making us max on our lifts to see where we are at. Maxed bench today and got 265 which was depressing and honestly it should of been 260 but i'm at a calorie deficit so I didn't expect a lot. Tomorrow I will max my squat.

    Today was another max day and after the bad bench today I wasn't very motivated to lift but I got great news when I maxed squat! I was hoping for about 245-250 but i blew that out and got 270! i probably could of got up in the 280s but i didn't want to destroy my back or anything. SO that gae me some good news. Tomorrow I'll probably just try and get a decent arm and shoulder workout in.
