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?

    Food: All food on time

    Supps: All supps taken

    I had a terrible nights sleep last night and this affected my training to start off with. But near the end of my workout i got this sudden surge o energy not sure where it came from which enabled me to do more reps with more weight

    Training: I ncreased the weight on my weighted dips, bent over rows and deadlifts on 2nd set of deadlifts i got 102.5kgx7 (225.5lbs)

    God damn, Arghhhhh

    16/03

    Food: All food on time

    Supps: All supps taken

    What a day, anyway today seemed like god damn Attack of the clinically insane O.A.P motorists part one and two, on two seperate occasions on the way to the gym, there these drivers that must have been over 60 that were out to crash into me, i was furious i was f'ing and blinding but this got me motivated for my workout

    Training: Increased the weight on my military press, and as the dumbells only go up to 30kg at my gym, i had to use the metal dumbells for more weight, this is where u attach the big plates yourself i checked it was secured with the pins correctly and proceeded on my 2nd set of dumbell extension and my 5th reop the bloody pins fell of and the plates hit me on the back of the head, god damn, luckily i was ok.

    Oh great now my sodding mobile phone is on the blink

    Rather forget about this day!!!

    How much do you use for side laterals?

    I moved onto 14kg DB's on friday and i think they've give me a sore rotator cuff. I can do 12 reps with 12kg quite easily, so i moved onto 14's and got 8. About an hour after trainning, my shoulder felt sore

    I don't like working through it either...I may take my week off the gym a couple of weeks early, depends how it feels on monday.
