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?

    Gains have been non-existant for the past 2 months or so. I will be 190 or I will die trying(hopefully no the latter). New routine is set. Calories will be plenty high.
    Time to get back on track! First workout will be tomorrow. I am gonna start with a push workout.

    Hey, I don't want to garbage your journal with useless post (nah, to be honest I don't give a rat a$$ ). But like you know... I've been there before you.. weighting a ****ty 150... (a year ago)
    I found it hard at first to eat can after can of tuna... this only to know that tomorrow I probably wouldn't be anywhere closer to my goal , but in a year , I would be closer than ever.
    My tip to you is to stay focus on your goal and never lose grip on it because of a sudden down or failure cause short term sucess and failure leave as fast as they come.

    Sinep- That was not a garbage post. I am very motivated and my eyes are set on this goal!! Thanks



    I didn't get to bed too early last night and I was extremely tired when I woke up. I felt I would be better off taking an extra day of rest and training on Tuesday. Tomorrow will be a push day.


    I ate plenty today!! I also slept well last night.

    7/10

    Had a quick workout today. I may join a gym for a month or two because my basement has been hotter than hell lately.


    Push:
    1.Flat db press-80'sx6, 70'sx7
    2.OH cambered bar ext.- 70x9
    3.dips-bwx19


    Felt a bit weak. I expected this though, due to poor training and diet from the past few weeks. I'll be back into it soon. I have the biggest urge to deadlift. Haven't done it in a while.

    7/12

    Weight: 160lbs


    Pull:
    1.wide grip chins-bwx13, bwx9
    2.deadlifts- 315x4
    3.underhand grip cable row-150x6


    I am going to up the volume slightly as I go. Not rela high, I'm just going to prolly do 2 work sets of every exercise. I didn't go all out on deads because it was the first time in a while. I'll stick with 315 until I can get 8 reps with it. Prolly could have got 6 with it today. I used cable row because I don't like doing free-weight rows after deads, too taxing. Next pull workout, I won't do deads and I'll add a shrug and a bicep movement.

    Haha! I was so damn confused until I saw the origin date. Hell, resurrect this goal and I'll race you, chris. I think you got me by 15lbs and my goal is 15lbs less than what yours WAS
