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?

    First cut

    Lately I have been feeling a bit fat so I decided that I need to cut for the first time in my life. Here it goes.

    Split:

    mostly 3 days on, 1 off, 2 on, 1 off

    chest
    back
    shoulders, arms
    quads, abs
    hams, calves

    start: 8-11-2003
    bw 94.2 kg
    bf 28.8 % --I know it's bull****, but at least I can monitor the changes.

    All weights in this journal are given in kg. (European style or metric)
    *2.2 gives the weight in pounds. Have a calculator ready if needed.

    example:

    bp
    50*8 wu
    100*6
    100*4f2
    100*4d2

    read:
    bench press
    50 kg (110 lbs)*8 reps -- warm up set
    100 kg (220 lbs)*6 reps
    100 kg (220 lbs)*4 reps plus 2 forced reps (spotted)
    100 kg (220 lbs)*4 reps plus 2 at lighter weight (drop set)

    You do look to be carrying a bit more fat than in the last pics I saw of you. But on that note you look considerably more muscular too.

    Good luck with the cut. How do you plan on adjusting your diet, or are you just going to add in more cardio?

    I was planning to do only more cardio and eat a bit less. Time will tell.

    Good luck with the cut, you're looking very good on those pics. Are you going to be posting your diet too or just your workouts?

    Your BF is definately higher than last pics, BUT it looks like you have packed on some good LBM also. Try not to get "cut happy" and loose all that LBM, just enough so the BF% doesn't keep creping up as you add mass.

    Thanks, eric. I have this bf% scale. I know it's not accurate, but anyway at least I know if I'm moving upwards or downwards.

    You look great. Arms look massive, what they measure currently?

    good luck with your goals.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."
