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?

    Should have informed him that the curl jockeys hang out in the squat rack and not on the chest press machine.

    God this day sucks. I have a stupid cold....tried to workout and totally sucked on everything. I'm not sleeping at night and fighting with the bf. Can anything else go wrong today?
    If figureskating was easy they'd call it hockey. me
    If it's important they'll call back. me

    its who is going to stop me.

    And so it begins,
    My eyes wide, yet I see only darkness.
    The world is mine, yet it crumbles with my touch.
    I can touch the stars with my thoughts,
    But the simplest of pleasures denied.
    All things must end they say;
    to end before beginning?
    Tis the sadest loss of all.

    Ok finally feeling better after the "bug". Turns out its a chest infection so taking my puffers regularly and on biaxin. Finally sleeping throughout the night. Unfortunately have lost 7 freaken pounds. Drinking ensure and boost, trying to eat but the appetite hasn't really come back. So went to the gym and trying lower reps with higher weights. Managed a 540 on the leg press for 4..... the 4th was a real struggle and I think i was actually making sounds ( god knows what kind...hopefully no one mistook it for something else) got up and my legs gave out and sat on the floor laughing, I couldn't get up for a few minutes my legs were shaking so bad. I contemplated crawling to one side but thought nah I'll just sit here. This is actually my first day trying the higher weight and lower reps suggestion. Needless to say my legs are asking me if this was a good idea. A guy came over to use the leg press and asked if I was done. Told him yup just thought I'd collapse here for awhile. Managed to get up and stumble over for the rest of the workout...needless to say I went light. God have you ever noticed how steep stairs are when your trying to walk down to the locker room? You're trying to pick up your leg to step down when you really feel like just hopping from step to step....shuffle to the edge..hop....shuffle to the edge ...hop. The legs are alot better at the moment...hope i don't feel it tomorrow at work. God work!!!!!!!!! its so unfair!!!!!!!! They don't have an elevator....its a freaken flight of stairs!!! Arghhhhh!

    You will soon learn that you just don't bother trying to get up after a set on leg press for at least a minute or two. One thing you might try, that works for me, is always have a permanent mean look, or scowl on your face at all times when you are in the gym. I find that if I ever ask someone how many sets they have left, the answer is always 1, and it is then performed right away, so that I don't have to wait long. Nobody has every asked if they can work in with me ever either. So remember, never smile, don't make eye contact with people, otherwise they may think you have something to say to them, and above all, angry facial expressions only. Hmmm...maybe I just smell bad...nah, it can't be.

    Ps. You'll have to try extra hard, since you are a figure skater, and when has a figure skater ever intimidated anyone.

    Pss. I take that back. Tonya Harding is pretty butchy, and she's starting a pro boxing career now.

    Good point.

    Nice workout. Let's are always tough but also give a sense of accomplishment when you get done.

    Did I just read what I thought I read Mr El Pietro?

    Tonja Harding?.....what a disgrace to the sport. Intimidating?..... I can skate faster than you....I can maneuver better than you....I'm more flexible than you and yes I can even hip check. All this without the aid of pads or guards. And crap this is not an inflammatory remark to anyone watching out there.

    There's a reason pads are required in hockey, where as in *ahem* figure skating they are not. C'mon, all the hockey players on the board get in here and team up!

    There should be a no toe pick policy on WBB. Clough, make it so!

    Next time ya get worked up just take it out on Majt!

    LOL! Yeah, I wouldn't try to play check hockey without pads, that's for sure. Even with pads, when some 200+ lbs. guy flattens me in a corner, it hurts!

    As those toe picks DO dig up the ice something fierce!

    Toe Picks

    Hmmmm well I skate with my blade and only use the pick for jumps and landing. I don't skate with my toes. I believe hockey players push from side to side while figureskaters turn from the hip and push back. Slightly different technique. And yea bring it on

    Now would this entail some form of body contact?

    *waits for Majt to read this* :evillaugh


    Ps. I know everything I need to know about figure skating. I've watched the movie "Cutting Edge" a few times. If you haven't seen it, it's about a hockey player who gets injured too badly to play anymore, so he enters the frou frou realm of figure skating, and of course *blah* *blah* falls in love with partner *blah* *blah* gets pissed at toe pick *blah* *blah* they compete and win doing some dangerous move. I guess they needed to have a dramatic finish. If you haven't seen it you should, it's prolly the only movie ever made on figure skating.

    Full body contact?

    Well if you feel the need to put on pads before you get on the ice then I guess thats fine.
