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?

    I'll start my journal properly next week but for today Im just going to put down my goals, stats and training routine. Im not worried about my diet at the moment; its well balanced and just needs as much protein as I can get in it.

    Ive been training for nearly two months now; so dont laugh at my stats too much.

    Stats:
    510 (only 15 so Im still growing)
    140 lbs
    Waist: 30
    Chest: 37
    Arm: 12.2
    Thigh: 20
    Neck: 14.5
    BF%: About 14%

    Routine:
    Monday: Chest, Back
    Wednesday: Legs, Abs
    Friday: Arms

    Short Term Goals:
    Improve my 5-rep max on each exercise every week for 6 weeks. Lose the belly ready for athletics season.

    Long Term Goals:
    I will be a firm 180lbs in 2 years max and I will be benching 250lbs plus at the end of those 2 years.

    I would suggest to do back before shoulders unless your shoulders are lagging far behind your back. Also, do chest before triceps.

    This reason is because the shoulder muscles are much smaller than the back muscles and the same goes for triceps and chest. You should do the biggest muscle first, which you can do exercises which use the most muscles and push the most weight.


    Other than that, the exercises look good and I like the low-moderate volume. Good luck with it!
