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?

    6 SECOND ABS my A$$

    OK so lets see how long it really does take to burn enough fat to create a 6 pack. My training portion began on the New Year. 20 Rep Squats are the basis for my leg day along with some isolation movements! (Uhm make no mistake about it 225X20 BURNS!) Since I work out 4 days a week I'll be doing 3 sets of Ab work every workout come hell or hi water! My diet I will incrementally clean up as I try to track my progress with a tape measure & calipers & scale. I'll be looking for help when I get stuck and thoughts on keeping most of the lean mass I have worked my ass off trying to get.
    Tonight it's delt & abs,Thursdays are Arms & Abs,Sat Chest & back & abs and Sundays are Legs & abs. I'll grab some stats and maybe a pic tomorrow. It's been a while since I posted up a pic (too lazy I guess) cause my camera SUCKS and I have to jump through hoops to upload it into my system and them post it only to have it look like crap. OH well phase 2 of my long term plan starts today.

    Do what I do. Eat burger king, have dessert every night, and do abs once or twice a week for a few minutes each.

    It works.

    People hate me.

    Gal: prepare thyself to become LIVID!
    ST:Why the hell didn't you tell me this before you bastad!?
    Chris Russow:Celebrity? You guys holding out on me?
    Bruteman:This time there's no quitting and not even looking at the scale! Thanks man!
    the doc:C'mon you guys post the videos you know you pwn them!
    cphafner: Dude the minute I see them I'm posting a full blown 8x10 f****** glossy!
    Belial:Where'd they hide the hAet smiley? Thanks man!
    Cocoa: Thanks man..

    Ok so here we go

    Stats
    Weight
    :213 lbs
    Waist:This is the largest part of my waist over the handles of love and belly with no sucking it in. 37-1/2" (yes I still wear 33" waist pants and some 34" but I don't wear my pants up on my love handles) So for the recod the tape says 37-1/2" at my largest point this is where I will be measuring.
    Calipers say:10~14mm depending on where I'm taking 1 point 1 inch above my pelvic bone.
    This is a pure crap method and I would guess my BF% to be around 15-18% but that doesn't matter I'm looking for smaller waist,more veins,smaller caliper readings everythng else is really subjective!
    Diet:FILTHY I eat what I want, when I want ,OK so it's not full of junk but beer,birthday cake & Ice cream are regulars for the time being I will clean it up incrementally and hope I can progress 1/2 as well as ST does!
    Seated Smith Shoulder Press
    135X10
    135X10
    155X8
    155X6
    135X5
    The usual twosome of girls were doing SLDL in the power rack ,loose gray sweat shorts,boy the brunette has nice legs!

    Bar Bell Shrugs
    225X10
    275X8
    315X5
    315X6
    225X12
    Yeah there was a lot of eye contact and visual flirting going on, I just smiled and enjoyed it all <ahem> Then OH hell I'll tell you in the randumbz

    Front DB Raises
    30X12
    35X5/30X4
    30X7/20X4

    Machine Laterals
    StackX9
    StackX7
    StackX4/116X3

    Decline Sit Ups
    BwX25
    +10X24
    +10X16

    Hanging Leg Raises
    BwX10
    BwX10

    Tunz:Cast Me Aside-Drowning Pool

    TEH RANDUMBZ:OK So I am doing my Shrugs in the cage and there's a flat bench to my left (pretty close to the cage) and a regular blonde who has a great body walks up smiles and motions if it's OK to use the bench ,sure I say expecting her to move it,instead she lays down on the damn thing right there and starts doing some leg raise and abs routine right there.....damn close to the bar and her loose clothes are all over the place. Gym full of mirrors and she rests while she's smiling and looking at me while I work and I'm trying to concentrate on my lifts meanwhile the Usual Tuesday girls are all giggley and watching from a distance. WHY the hell is this happening to me I wonder! I'm not complain or bragging I'll admit I like it but it's just entertainment! Could it be because I am having my wedding band resized? Nah I use gloves,oh well whatever it is I'll enjoy it...oh and one more thing LOTS of NEWBIES lots of CARDIO queens!! OH yeah spandex heaven!!Bring them on!

    Ohh a new journal. Good luck on the quest for abs man. I am going to start that quest up again in mid Feb.


    LOL, I also saw alot of new cardio queens today. It was funny, some of the ladies who had been working out 3 days a week for the past year could not get on a treadmill because they were all being used by the newbies. There are some new hotties that have ventured in, hope a couple stick around.

    Grumpy:Thanks man! Can't wait till tonight!
    TTT:Thanks man & welcome to my journal!
    Shane:Thank you ,yeah I want to have a whole gym full of cute grils just for motivational purpose of course! *cough cough*

    DAMN gym was closed early yesterday due to some crappy weather so....I gotta do arms & abs tonight,Legs Sat,Chest& back on Sunday if I'm not skiing (weather & conditions depenedent)
    Sad story ahead: I quit ski patrolling 2 seasons ago because it was too damn time consuming. I worked Monday Nights & Saturdays (days),during my 5 years there Mondays seemed to be horrific for traumatic injuries. This was part of what led me to decide not to do it anymore. Seeing young kids realy hurt bad and having worked one scene where the poor kid didn't make it just sucks. (It's an odd thing but when something like that happens the memories are VERY clear & vivid and they never seem to go away) ANYWAY, I saw on the new this last Tuesday that the mountain had another fatality this year. (On a MONDAY night)
    I'll only say this once,if you ski or snowboard and you're young do NOT under estimate the danger that this sport presents. WEAR a DAMN HELMET! It could mean the difference between walking away and not! OK I'm off my soap box I consider my public service announcement fulfilled!

    TUNZ:Tattooed Dancer-Ozzy

    TEH RANDUMBZSo I guess the decline situp really tweaked my back (I tossed and turned (VERY slowly) last night with my good buddy the Heating pad!Still frigging sore I can't figure out why really! Anyway I'm in the squat rack and who comes to work out beside me? Hot bodied racquet ball blonde,we strike up small talk (hey she's one of the few I'll turn off the MP3 Player for :evillaugh ! So she's doing this OH dbext move and yeah every time she does it her shirt rides up her flat tan torso.
    uhmm am I SUPPOSED to LOOK? Well I'm not dead yeat,but how can I concentrate on my squats when she's doing that and smirking (cause I swear to god she's doing to so I'll look) and then she has the gall to bend over to change dbs but not way down at the other end right beside me! I HAD to look,the thong was obvious and damn mirrors in the gym she caught me and smiled an evil grin. Fantastic body for her age! Fantastic body for any age really and a charming personality so for a few moments I forgot my aching back and squatted! I skied Sunday and there was no way I was doing legs after that! I have been mulling over the idea of hitting the gym in the mornings again (just for a change) BUT all that eye candy....hmmmm what to do!!!
