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?

    Jock, ummmmmmm not sure how to take that post.........................



    Gyno, not sure what it is you're looking for. Those are my lifts, amazing genetics, I dunno.

    I bust my ass everytime I workout, it's obviously paying off. I am unsure if you are questioning if these are true or not, but rest assured I have better things to do with my time than make up lifts and create a false journal. What good would that be doing anybody, especially me? I made this journal to keep myself motivated and track my progress, something that has helped me immensley already.

    Well, back from the doc. This really sucks. Pulled my lat muscle as well as a smaller muscle in my neck. I also pinched a nerve in my neck. All from a fookin' 25lb dumbell!! What the hell. In any case he told me no lifting period for 1 week. What the hell am I going to do? He said I should not do shoulders for at least a month ( I told him about me doing this 2 weeks ago). He said I didn't give it proper time to heal even though it felt like it was ready to go. I guess I'll just have to kick it up a notch on my cardio starting Saturday. He told me to stay flat on my back for 2 days. Yeah right! But I got a note so I have the rest of the week off from work. Oh well!!

    Start with the weights again next Thursday. Until then strictly cardio I guess. Need to lose the flab anyway....

    It's cool jock227, just had to make sure!! Sounded a little funny


    DaChickenShowYo, I don't think it was so much the raises as the fact that I didn't give it proper time to heal from my first injury 3 or so weeks ago.tuttut

    I learned my lesson though. I have to stop pushing myself quite so much. I mean I will keep up the intensity and all, but I won't train stupid!!

    I don't reallt follow a set diet, which is why I still have a good deal of fat. But my goal is not to become HUGE and ripped. My main goal is to get my ass in shape for football. But right now, I am trying to just keep the carbs low, and up my protein intake, also I do not eat much fat. I have a pretty hectic work schedule so I cannot eat 5+ meals a day. This is not a good thing but I supplement 3 of the 5 meals with a protein shake. Again, not good, but it seems to be working for me. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    It's feeling pretty good actually. Thanks for asking. I took the weekend off from everything, even cardio. I feel like a fookin fat bum now though. I am suppose to not lift for another 3 days, but I am going to lift tonight. I can't stand it anymore. I will just lift lighter and I'll skip my shoulder workout for the next few weeks.

    1/7

    BACK & TRI'S

    DEADLIFT- 10X245 8X295 3X335(MISSED 4) 7X295
    PULLDOWNS- 12X190 10X210 6X240
    DB ROWS- 15X60'S 15X60'S 7X100'S
    SKULL CRUSHERS- 12X85 8X105 6X105
    PRESSDOWNS- 15X180 9X100 10X80
    ONE-ARM DB PRESS- 20X15'S 10X25'S 10X25'S

    I actually felt really good throughout the entire workout. I was really nervous about my injury, but everything went really good. I even lifted my normal weights. I had to pull up on a few of the exercises as I felt my neck start to strain. So I couldn't go to failure on some things, but other than that I am very pleased!!

    Decided that instead of trying to do cardio on the same day as a lift I will alternate days instead. Weights, cardio, weights, cardio, etc. We'll see how it goes. I know that you are not suppose to over-do it with cardio, but keep in mind I have to do it for conditioning, not just fat loss. That's all for today!!

    LEGS

    SIDE LUNGES- 10X45 10X85 10X85
    CALF RAISES- 25X350 25X400 25X400
    LUNGES- 10X25'S 10X25'S 10X25'S

    Workout felt great!!! This is the closest I have ever come to puking! I did a little variation on the squats, took a wider than shoulder width stance. HOLY CRAP!! I feel these work you much harder! Anyways.....

    ericg --- I play defensive end. As soon as the snow leaves, me and some other guys on the team will be doing classes just for those specific things, plyometrics and agililty. We will also be going twice a week to the field to do various sprints and conditioning drills.

    So excited, can't wait to play!!

    Ya, pretty impressive.

    Your bench has gone up 50 lbs and 3 more reps in about a month. You on drugs boy?

    Nope, I'm not on drugs. I think that maybe when I was first starting out and getting back into it I was afraid to go too heavy. I wasn't pushing myself like I am now. And the more I see my lifts going up, the more I seem to push myself. It's like a chain reaction, the more results I get the more I push myself. I hope when I plateua I keep the same intensity though!!
