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?

    Day 8 of 28
    Monday, December 23, 2002


    Wow what a long day..Had a shift form 4am-1pm today. I didn't even sleep last night before work, so I was dead tired. I did manage to get a nap once I got home, from 2-7pm.

    Diet:

    Meal 1: 3:20: 12 tbsp Egg Whites (94,0.8,20,0)

    Calories = 94

    Calories = 2036
    Carbs = 152g = 30%
    Protein = 211g = 41%
    Fats = 59g = 26%


    Comments: Calories were rightfully a bit higher today. I figured I better raise them a bit since I was up all day and night pretty much.

    ------------------------------

    Training:

    Deadlifts - 225x3, 225x6, 225x8 *no straps on all 3 sets* (2.5 min rest between sets)
    Wide-Grip Pull-ups - BWx6, BWx5, BWx4, BWx4, BWx5, BWx3 (1 min rest between sets)
    Seated Cable Rows - 135x6, 135x6, 135x6, 135x6, 135x6, 135x6 (1 min rest between sets)

    12 min of HIIT on treadmill
    3 min of stretching

    Comments: Got a workout in tonight from 9-10, after waking up from my nap. It was the first time I was able to work my back in 2 weeks, so I was pretty happy about that. Expectedly, strength was down a bit, especially in pull-ups. But I'm just pleased I can workout again.

    My pec minor is pretty much healed now. Tomorrow I'm gonna try to work chest. So that'll be the test.

    I'm gonna get some nice zzzzz... tonight. I get to sleep in tomorrow, and have x-mas eve and day off.

    I didn't realize you had pulled your pec muscle. Hope it heals soon man. It sucks how hard we work to put on this muscle and how damn quickly it atrophies away.

    Your diet looks spot on too!

    Good job.

    Ya it doesn't take long for atrophy at all. Injuries suck. I was just looking over my journal from last year, and at this time my big three lifts were:

    Bench = 225x3
    Squat = 265x6
    Deadlift = 365x4

    at a weight of 180 or so.

    At those reps, my bench is probably down 15 lbs, squat down 40, and deadlift down 65 or so. I've lost probably about 5 lbs of lbm too over the year.

    Hopefully 2003 will be better. With smarter training, and more dedication, I think it will.

    Good luck with the chest workout. You'll know for sure if that pec has healed after that.

    Comments:

    Well I gave today an honest effort. I made it through x-mas lunch with my relatives, and that dinner was looking REAL good. After getting home, I went my buddy's party. They own a pizza place in town, and their also asian and make great chinese food. Therefore, there was tons of pizza, chinese food, and beer. They all but shoved the food down my throat so I had to oblige. I slipped up on my diet, but I think it wasn't a huge meal. I wasn't that full afterwards, so I'm just gonna get back on track tomorrow and keep on chugging.

    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to lower abs (morning)
    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to love handles (morning)

    Comments: This Yohimburn DF holds a damn lot of water. I don't think the diuretic properties are doing anything. It better shed some noticeable fat when I cycle off it, or I'll be pissed.

    For those of you thinking about using Yohimburn or the DF version, go with the plain, or perhaps Avant Labs Lipoderm-Y, since its significantly cheaper. I'll report more on this product as my cutting continues.

    I think I will steal some of your meals when I start my cut. You have some really good ones and you already have the macros figured out for me. That is always a HUGE plus LOL

    I love Dymetadrine Extreme by AST. How do you like it? That sh$t gets me going

    no prob man. I've developed some nice meal combo's. I don't mind if anyone copies them.

    When I first tried Dym X a year ago, that stuff got me jumping off the walls for my workouts. Awesome stuff. Unfortunately, I don't get the same jumpy feeling off it anymore because of tolerance. It does keep me awake though, so I know its still working, and supposedly, greater tolerance to an EC doesn't lower fat-burning effects, even if it feels less effective. So its all good.

    Comments: Nothing new to report really. I'm sorta getting into a dieting groove.

    ------------------------------

    Training:

    Seated DB Press - 60x4, 60x6, 60x6+1 forced (2 min rest between sets)
    DB Lateral Raises - 30x6, 25x6, 25x6, 25x6, 25x6, 25x6 (1 min rest between sets)
    DB Rear Raises - 20x6, 20x6, 20x6, 20x6, 20x6, 20x6 (1 min rest between sets)
    Swiss Ball Crunches - 20x6, 10x6, 10x8, 10x6 (1 min rest between sets)
    Side Crunches - Left side 10x10, Right side 10x10 (super set)

    16 min Stationary Bike (HIIT)

    Comments: Pretty decent session. For a change, I may try Barbell Upright Rows instead of DB Lateral Raises next week. The last time I did Upright Rows was about a year ago, and they pinched my shoulder performing them. I'll see if they still give me problems.

    Supplements:

    Dymetadrine Xtreme - 2x (pre-workout)
    Xenadrine RFA-1 - 2x (evening)
    Yohimburn DF - 2 x 1/2 pipette to face (morning and evening)
    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to lower abs (morning)
    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to love handles (morning)

    Its a lil past 5am. Just getting home from work again. Pulled a 12 hour shift tonight. Went in to see Anna (Savannah) before my shift to pick up some supps. That cookies & cream myoplex bar was o.k. tonight. Not great, but much better than that lean body banana split garbage you had me trying last time.
    Anna your my hero though for getting one of my favorite products back in.

    Now you gotta work on that NYC

    Damn these half dayers are painfully long. Nonetheless, the diet stayed right on track throughout.

    Calories = 360
    Carbs = 36g

    Calories = 260
    Carbs = 18g
    Protein = 30g

    Fats = 76g = 38%


    Comments: Today would normally be a refeed day, but since I had to work all night, and with tomorrow being the same thing, I decided to postpone the refeed till Monday.

    I also decided that starting today, I would drop calories to 1800 on off days, following the same 30/40/30 split. Not sure what I'll do with training days yet. I only have 2 weeks..3 tops of this cutting left, and I'm down to maybe 12-13% bf, so I wanna pick it up that extra notch soon.

    Sunday, December 29, 2002


    Just getting home from work again. Woohoo, I get the next 2 days off. New year's eve is one of them. Thank god. I'm probably going to a big party at one of my classmate's house. With all the fine feline that will be there, I'm going to allow myself to cheat a little on the diet that night, in terms of beer consumption. Only because its new year's even though. I'll still try to restrict it as much as humanly possible on this upcoming wonderful night.

    Diet:

    Meal 1: 1:30: 55g Oatmeal (209,37,8,3.5)
    2 scp Simply Whey (115,4,20,2)
    6g Peanut Butter (38,1.1,2,3)

    Calories = 362
    Carbs = 42.1g
    Protein = 30g
    Fat = 8.5g

    Meal 2: 4:30: 100g Tuna (116,0,27,1)
    140g Salad (21,4.8,1,0.5)
    2 tsp Udo's Oil (135,0,0,15)

    Calories = 272
    Carbs = 4.8g
    Protein = 28g
    Fat = 16.5g

    Meal 3: 7:30: 4oz Salmon (206,0,29,9)
    150g Sweet Potato (154,36,3,0)

    Calories = 360
    Carbs = 36g
    Protein = 32g
    Fat = 9g

    Meal 4: 10:00: 1 Lean Body Bar (260,18,30,8)

    Calories = 260
    Carbs = 18g
    Protein = 30g
    Fat = 8g

    Meal 5: 1:00: 1 pack Tuna (101,0,22,1.5)
    20g Almonds (116,4,4,10)

    Calories = 217
    Carbs = 4g
    Protein = 26g
    Fat = 11.5g

    Meal 6: 3:00: 100g Tuna (116,0,27,1)
    140g Salad (21,4.8,1,0.5)
    2 tsp Udo's Oil (135,0,0,15)

    Calories = 272
    Carbs = 4.8g
    Protein = 28g
    Fat = 16.5g

    Fats = 76g = 38%


    Comments: Diet was identical to yesterday's. Carbs % have been a bit lower on both days. No real need for a bunch of carbs since these have been off days from the gym.

    Tomorrow I plan on having a refeed day.

    Comments: As you can tell by the high # of carbs and calories, today was a refeed.

    ------------------------------

    Training:

    Deadlifts - 245x3 (no straps), 235x5 (no straps - grip gave out at 5), 235x8 (easy 8 reps here with straps)

    Comments: Didn't do cardio afterwards today, since with it being a refeed, I think it would be detrimental to my goal of staying in a caloric surplus for the day.

    Tuesday, December 31, 2002


    Woohoo happy new years everyone. Its 4:15am and I just got home from party hopping. I picked up a few pretty fine #s, and best of all I drank only 2 beers all night.

    I guess I'll post my official New Year Resolutions here:

    1. Dedicate myself to bodybuilding more than ever. Lack of more dedicated eating habits is what held me back in 2002. The way I've been going lately, I feel I'm on the right path to a better body. I'm getting big this year.
    2. Find a good girl this month and perhaps get into a relationship with her.

    So I pretty much only have two resolutions this year. No more one night stands for a while. I'm gonna close with #s instead and hook up with dates. I'll date a few girls and hopefully one will pan out for a while.

    Diet:

    Meal 1: 2:00: 50g Oatmeal (190,33,7,3.5)
    2 scp Simply Whey (115,4,20,2)
    6g Peanut Butter (38,1,2,3)

    Calories = 343
    Carbs = 8g
    Protein = 29g
    Fat = 8.5g

    Workout: 2:15-3:00

    Meal 2 (post-workout): 3:15: 1 Myoplex (280,24,42,2)
    50g Banana (46,12,1,0)
    20g Dextrose (80,20,0,0)

    Calories = 406
    Carbs = 56g
    Protein = 43g
    Fat = 2g

    Meal 3: 5:15: 50g Oatmeal (190,33,7,3.5)
    1 scp Simply Whey (57,2,10,1)
    6 tbsp Egg Whites (47,0.8,10,0)

    Calories = 294
    Carbs = 35.8g
    Protein = 27g
    Fat = 4.5g

    Meal 4: 8:00: 100g Tuna (116,0,27,1)
    140g Salad (21,4.8,1,0.5)
    2 tsp Udo's Oil (135,0,0,15)

    Calories = 272
    Carbs = 4.8g
    Protein = 28g
    Fat = 16.5g

    Meal 5: 11:00: 2 12oz bottles Beer (292,26,2,0)

    Calories = 292
    Carbs = 26g
    Protein = 2g
    Fat = 0g

    Meal 6: 4:15: 100g Tuna (116,0,27,1)
    140g Salad (21,4.8,1,0.5)
    2 tsp Udo's Oil (135,0,0,15)

    Calories = 272
    Carbs = 4.8g
    Protein = 28g
    Fat = 16.5g

    6g Cod Liver Oil Capsules (54,0,0,6)

    Daily Total

    Calories = 1933
    Carbs = 165.4g = 34%
    Protein = 157g = 32%
    Fats = 54g = 25%
    Alcohol = 26g = 9%


    Comments: Check out meal 5. I included my alcohol consumption.
    And I actually stayed within my caloric range.

    ------------------------------

    Training:
    BB Bench Press - 195x3, 180x4, 170x6 (Had no strength today. Maybe it had something to do with just waking up 30 minutes before)
    Peck Deck Flyes - 110x6, 110x6, 110x6, 115x6, 115x6, 120x7 (1 min rest between sets, supersetted with Leg-ups)
    Decline Leg-Ups - BWx10, BWx10, BWx10, BWx10, BWx8 (1 rest, supersetted with Peck Deck Flyes)
    15 min treadmill (HIIT)

    Comments: I didn't wake up until 1:45 today, and realized the gym closed at 3. So I had to hurry up there, only to find some dude using the only bench press left to rest his dumbells on. I let him finish a set, then asked if I could use the bench. He said he only had two sets left. I looked up at the clock and it read 2:20 so I looked back at him and said well the gym closes in 40 minutes, would you mind resting you dumbells on the ground instead. Some of us actually like using it to bench press. The lil **** then obliged.
    After my workout, I hopped on the treadmill for a quick HIIT session but got kicked off by the manager at 3:00. I got about 8 minutes in at least.

    Thanks man. Ya, I'm starting to kinda miss not being in a relationship. Haven't been in one in like 6 months. The last 4 months have been fun, but I think finding the right girl to spend my time with (which little free time I have) will be even more fun.

    Stay tuned. In the next week or two when I'm back at school I may actually post in this journal on a daily basis, the # of girls I hit on, how each encounter went, etc. Sorta to push me more. Maybe I'll start when I go off this yohimburn.

    Comments: Decided to drop calories on training days as well to 1800, following the same 30/40/30 split.

    ------------------------------

    Training (quads, hams, calves):

    Leg Press - 460x2+1F, 400x6, 370x8
    Leg Ext. - 155x6, 160x6, 165x6, 165x6, 165x6x 165x8 (1 min rest between sets)
    Leg Curls - 125x6, 120x6, 120x6, 120x8 (1 min rest between sets. Supersetted with Calf Press)
    Calf Press - 425x6, 425x6, 425x6, 425x5 (1 min rest between sets. Supersetted with Leg Curls)

    15 min Stationary Bike (HIIT). I did 15 sec high intensity, followed by 30 sec low intensity. That went pretty well. I normally do a 30/60 cycle, but I think this 15/30 will be slightly more effective.

    Comments: Had to super-set the leg curls and calf press again cause the gym closed at 5pm today and I didn't start my workout until 4:10 again. Stupid holidays. Thank god we're back to regular hours tomorrow.

    Other than that, it was a pretty ****ty workout. I'm starting to feel less energy in the gym. Probably cause I've been dieting for a lil while now, and I'm soon probably gonna be under 12%. I'm getting a bit away from my bodyfat set point. Oh well, no need to worry about strength until I start slow gaining in a few weeks.

    Supplements:

    Dymetadrine Xtreme - 2x (evening)
    Yohimburn DF - 1 x 1/2 pipette to face (pre-workout)
    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to lower abs (pre-workout)
    - 1 x 1/2 pipette to love handles (pre-workout)

The ministry of transportation (MTO) was telling everyone to stay off the roads. Thats saying a lot seeing as this is Canada.

    Comments:

    Pretty much spot on today with the calories and macronutrient breakdown.

    ------------------------------

    Training (triceps/biceps):

    EZ Preacher Curls - 75x3, 65x6, 65x8
    DB Incline Curls - 30x6, 25x6, 25x6, 25x6, 30x6, 30x7 (1 min rest between sets)

    18 min treadmill (HIIT)
    3 min stretching

    Comments: Energy was back today in the gym. Probably because I started taking 2 EC pre-workout again. I guess its a dangerous combo when taking EC with yohimbine. I definately feel my heart beat racing more when doing cardio after training. I'll be pissed if I kill myself.
