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?

    Didn't lift today, cheated on my diet the whole day. Had a soccer game. Thats about it. Tommorow I am starting my diet up strict again. I am thinking of my lifting plan. Its so hard with my schedule. My goals as of right now are:

    increase my strength, flexibility, grip, speed, endurance, be 140-143 by thanksgiving, Bench 145x6, Deadlift 205, Squat 165x10. 10 pullups, 10 chinups, 25 pushups. 5:30 mile.

    I am going to start using a MAX OT type training program and try to get as strong as possible and not worry about how big I am getting until wrestling season is over.

    It was a great day for my diet, I had to stay after school for my soccer game, then the whole soccer team went out to a chinese buffet and I turned it down, cheerleaders were offering free pizza and I turned it down. I got my sister to bring me a ensure bar and I needed that wawa shorti. Im so happy though. I decided I wanted to have a strong grip for wrestling. So I found a tennis ball in my bookbag that I found on the ground one day after soccer practice and I started squeezing for 2 periods. Then I wasn't that sore. But 3 periods later I did it again and when I started I could feel the stiffness but then it went away. I was shaking people's hands all day trying to test my grip. It wasn't that sore at all though last night.

    6:20- bowl of cocoa puffs with skim
    10:30 2 turkey sausage links
    12:45 protein plus power bar
    7:00 Ensure bar
    10:00 30 calories of propel, turkey and cheese wawa shorti
    12:30 2 egg whites, 4g of vitamin c, multi, 1 slice of swiss cheese

    Woke up at 10:30 so I got about 10 hours of sleep. Boy I needed that! My grip is dead, my hands and the muscles right below my wrist are dead. Wow, I have never been this sore in my life in a certain area. And I have been pretty sore. It hurt so bad to open up my bathroom door! I like it! All I did was squeeze a tennis ball. At 11:30 I ran to grandpops(mile) mowed his lawn (hour and a half to two hours) then ran a mile back. On the mile back I didn't have anything in my stomach so hopefully it burned some fat! Scratched the forearm training becuase my forearms were so sore! Stuck to my diet good today. I have a wrestling tournament on Oct. 6th and Oct. 13th, I plan on going 145 for both, I may have to cut a little water weight I got about 200 bucks now from work, in a week or two im gonna get some more whey and glutamine. My workout went awesome today and I love the push pull full body workout. I think am going to work my neck at school and abs and forearms twice a week on days I don't lift.

    10:30- Meal 1- bowl of cocoa puffs with skim milk, natural peanut butter and low sugar jelly on wheat bread, multi, 4g of vitamin c

    11:30- Meal 5- Bowl of lettuce, 1/2 can of chicken breast, 1 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of vinegar

    LIFTING- Push-48min
    parallel squat- 155-8, 165-6 - more heavy on the squats, more warmup
    db bench- 40-8, 50-fail- couldn't get hte 50's up, didn't do the incline this week
    smith machine military press- 30(+smith bar)-7, 35-5, warm up next time
    close grip bench- 115-6, DS 105-3
    tri cable pulldown- 40-8, heavy next time, keep elbows at side
    calf raises- 45- 10in, 10out, 10 straight, 10 reverse, 45- 10 straight, 10 in, 10 out, 10 reverse- killer pump, worked them good
    incline db fly- 20-8- really worked the chest
