The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Leg day = blaaaahhhhh!

    Always looking but never post that often. Today was my leg day. NE way I have beed reading lately about increasing the intensity of workouts. So this morn. I decided to give it a try. I cut my rest between squats in half and almost no rest on others. Went something like this.

    Squat 1 (15 reps, no locking out down to just below parallel)
    2 min rest
    Squat 2 (15 reps, no locking out down to just below parallel)
    -getting tough
    2 min rest
    Squat 3 (10 reps, same as previous) -bitching alot
    2 min rest
    Squat 4 (10 reps, didnt even want to enter the power rack)
    1 min rest
    Leg curls
    no rest
    Leg extensions
    By this time I was sweating like a little piggie, don't get me wrong I always sweat a lot but this time it was insane.

    Still had more to do but couldnt imagine it. I left the gym and proceeded to puke outside, then again when I got home.

    Now my legs are sore and tired and I have a class in 20 min. that is on the 3rd floor w/ no elevator. Not looking foreward to it at all.

    Sorry for the long post. I just havent puked on Leg day in a while and was kind of excited about it.

    My friends think I am nuts btw.

    Leg day is the greatest. I think you have to be a masochist to really appreciate the intense glute/quad DOMS.

    I've never ever puked on a leg day, or from any other workout for that matter. Even though I push myself as hard as I possibly can most of the time.

    I've had a phobia since childhood about vomiting...I avoid it at all costs. You CAN enjoy a hella intense leg workout without adding puking to the equation, IMHO. But hey, if you like it, go with it...

    What I myself have held. But why declare
    The things forbidden that while the Customs slept
    I have crossed to Safety with? For I am There,
    And what I would not part with I have kept.

    Tasted puke after finishing leg day.. or some of the exercises in it (squats, leg press), but never actually hurled. Not really looking forward to the day where I do. Maybe that's just me.

    I'm kinda looking forward to a day where I just pass out though. Figure that will happen sooner or later.

    While, I don't get up every leg day morning thinking "sweet, Im gonna puke in a little while!", I do like knowing that when I do it's because I have left everything that I had (litterally) at the gym. And on the sidewalk for that matter.

    Nights,
    Yeah passing out was close, too close. That is the reason I left the gym actually. I thought I was gonna pass out. Kind of a ****ty feeling. (especially with about 30 hotties in there too).

    Actually, yes. Real men puke after a good leg workout and the ladies know it. But passing out just makes you look like a puss who couldn't handle it.

    I can't believe i'm gonna join the "puke convo"........ haven't yet, but i'm always sooooo close after a good leg press. I really don't look forward to the day that i push myself just that little bit too hard, because i'll have to run down quite a few levels of stairs to make it to the nearest toliet at my gym!!

    The highlight of my week is always "LEGS DAY"!!!!........... oh what a terribly sad life i lead
