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?

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    Ok, so I'm not going to list rest of the N.H.E. adventure, but I must say that even hovering around or just above maintenance I managed to lose a greater percentage of fat than i was expecting within 4 week time period. Vascularity considerably improved, I did feel slightly crapp about 2 weeks in but that was mainly due to the early starts and what not.

    Now that I'm back to gaining, I have decided that strength is not as much of a priority for me at present. I will then be employing many of the principles used by Paul Borreson e.g. Pre exhaust and drop sets. More info canbe found at www.biohazard849.com

    The first proper week on this routine started off as follows:-

    04/11

    Delts/Tri's

    Seated Db Side laterals
    7.5kg x 25

    Seated db side laterals
    15kgx 6 dropped 12.5kgx8, 7.5kgx8. Lol, talk about a humbling experience

    Seated Db Press
    20kgx12

    Seated Db Press
    20kgx8 dropped 15kgx8 dropped 12.5kgx8

    Close grip bench
    60kgx 6
    60kgx7

    V-bar pushdown
    85kgx8 dropped 65kgx8 dropped 50kgx9

    Good first workout on this routine, my delts looked as if they were about to explode by the end of it

    Cheers. Actually i'm suprised I haven't heard a curl jockey comment thrown my way, though the 210kg pull through would put pay to any remark od that sort

    The tension on the cables was completely different compared to my usual gym, that's why it was easier. Though the floor was extremely slippy

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    Missed my chest and legs workout this week as I felt slightly rundown. I ended up going to the Hammersmith appollo in London on Thursday to see the Fast Show live, abosultely brilllllllllliant . Friday night went into london again ans stayed in an ace hotel, though when I went to check out saturday morning the tried to charge me for some film I never ordered, I was a little pissed off at this and well just say they knew that, and they were happy to take it off the bill.
