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?

    What exactly does yohimburn do for you?

    And does it mess with the 'ole erectile' abilities or what LOL?

    Some say ECA does and I wondered if this was like that.

    yohimburn in basic terms is supposed to spot reduce stubborn fat areas. The side effects are water retention. The DF version I use has added diuretic ingredients to help reduce the water retention. It doesn't reduce it much, if any though.

    Fortunately, it doesn't effect me getting a boner.

    The EC does shrink my balls right after taking it temporarily. So if I'm going out on a date and know I'm getting some, I cease usage 24 hours before, and they get big again.

    Avatar: Great journal, dude, I like the details on your meals. I'm already getting a lot of ideas to improve my diet, since I'm tried to shed some of the excess fat I'm carrying.

    Bennett: I guess everybody is different, so reactions to the EC may be different from one person to another, but at least in my case it did mess me a bit the second time I was using Ripped Fuel. The first time I took 2 caps in the morning preworkout for about 3 months and I didn't feel a change in that department. Then I went off of it for three weeks and then started taking 2 caps preworkout again. After about a month it was taking more time and needing more direct stimulation to wake up the buddy downstairs. About a week after I stopped taking it I was my old horny self again. I haven't been taking Ripped Fuel again since I stopped in November, but I might give it another try in a month or so and se how it goes.

    So you don't wanna get big, do you?

    Days 21-23 of 35
    January 05-07, 2002


    Well our site was down for the last 3 days, so I've been unable to update my journal. Since I don't feel like typing up 3 days worth, I'll do one post here summarizing my last 3 days.

    I should mention that I've decided to extend my cut for 1 more week to make it 5 weeks in all. So I've expanded the # of each title to 35 total. Today is day #24. So I'll be there before I know it. I plan on having no more refeed days until this diet is complete. I'm starting to round the final corner and will sprint for the finish line soon. Over the final 10 days calories will be decresased as I feel fit. The final day of my diet I have set for Sunday, January 18/03.

    Diet:

    January 05/03 totals:
    Calories = 1810
    Carbs = 139.5g = 31%
    Protein = 183g = 41%
    Fats = 60g = 29%

    January 06/03 (refeed day) totals:
    Calories = 2999
    Carbs = 379g = 51%
    Protein = 253g = 34%
    Fats = 50g = 15%

    January 07/03 totals:
    Calories = 1792
    Carbs = 125g = 28%
    Protein = 218g = 49%
    Fats = 51.5g = 26%

    Comments: Stayed strict on the diet all 3 days. Had a 12 hour refeed on Monday. All went well, despite being back in school and working.

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

    Training:

    Sunday, January 05/03: Off day
    Monday, January 06/03: Chest/Abdominals
    Tuesday, January 07/03: Triceps/Biceps

    Comments: On tuesday we had gym class at school in the weight room, and it was supposed to be an off day for me, but through peer pressure, I decided to workout. I followed my triceps/biceps workout as I would normally. I'm not big by any means but this is a school gym and I have a better physique than over 95% of the students in my college. Except I never workout there. So I got in a good workout. Impressed my friends, since thats the first time they've seen me with a pump. Got some nice looks from girls. Actually had a girl come up on the machine beside me smile and say hi out of no where. Never seen her before. Too bad I wasn't that attracted to her. Oh well.
    Was a pretty good workout overall.

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

    Took Sunday off Yohimburn. All 3 days I kept on my Dym X.

    Comments: Earlier this evening, I had my first craving for bad food since starting this diet 25 days ago. I had a major craving for Pizza Hut. This tells me that my leptin levels are starting to really drop now, despite refeed efforts. I speculate the main reason being because I'm starting to creep further and further away from my body fat set point. Oh well, still hanging in there. Only 10 more days to go.

    Something else I realized today was I eat a damn lot of tuna. Today's count was 3 packs and 1 can. I better not get mercury poisoning when I get older.

    Comments: I was planning on getting an arm workout in before work today but after getting home from school at 3, I slept for almost 4 hours and by the time I woke up, it was time to eat again and get my butt to work. Tomorrow I'm to hit shoulders. I may add some tri's/bi's work in there. We'll see.

Have I mentioned my body hates me?

    Day 27 of 35
    Saturday, January 11, 2002


    Was looking very lean this morning until...

    Diet:

    Diet was going well until up to about 5pm. I was craving pizza for the last few days and finally I gave in. Since I'm not in pre-contest I decided not to punish myself anymore, and I had 4 slices of stuffed crust pizza and 1 pack of crazy bread. I felt a lil guilty but psychologically I'm glad I did it. It was only 1 cheat meal so back on the diet now for the final 8 days.

    Leptin always seems to drop to the point where I need a break at around 28 days. It did this during the summer too, except back then my eating habits were out of control and I had 1 or 2 straight days of cheating. That was the old me. The new me had the 1 break and am now ready to finish this diet off.

    This lack of sleeping is really paying a toll on my body. I got 2 hours sleep sunday night, and 4 hours sleep last night. I'm feeling physically and mentally drained. And I get a sore throat on and of my sleeping patterns getting thrown off.

    Comments: Worked out at my school today so I had gatorade and a protein bar for post-workout.
    ------------------------------

    Training (chest):

    BB Bench - 215x1, 220x1, 185x4, 135x12

    12 min jog on treadmill (HIIT)

    Comments: Next week, I start my slow-bulk phase, and I plan on implementing the "Muscle Media 50 lb bench press program"; therefore, I had to test and see my current 1RM on the bench. I've had success with the program last year. I put 35 lbs on my bench in only 7 weeks. I went from a 1RM of 210 at the time up to 245. Ya I'm weaker now than I was before. But thats cause I've suffered like 4-5 months of dieting throughout last year and this. Time to start freaking putting some size on again.

    I'm starting with 10 lbs higher for a 1RM this time around, so my goal is to crank the press up to 250x1.

    Supplements:

    Dymetadrine Xtreme - 3x (morning & pre-workout)

    Comments: I'm cycling off the Yohimburn now. I wanna lean my face up. I picked up some Prep-H from the drug store, and may try out an application tonight before bed. I'll see how effective this stuff is.

    actually there is this one I'm gonna hit on this wednesday. I couldn't last week cause she was with her friends when I saw her. But omg, this girl would be so perfect for me. I'm gonna be pissed if she has a bf.

    I haven't macked with any other girls since going back to school yet because no girl has really turned me on like this one. Like sure I see beautiful girls all the time, but this one just seemed so perfect for me. 5'10, great body, beautiful face.. And she looked over at me while she was talking with her friends and glanced down, and then back up again at my eyes, and glanced over a few more times within a minute that we were near each other. So there may be a shot. I just hope I see her again next week.

    Days 31 & 32 of 35
    January 15 & 16, 2003


    Well this week has been very rough on me. Sunday night I got 1 hour sleep, Tuesday night I got 5 hours sleep, wendesday night I got asked to work again and got 1 hour sleep. So in 3 days I got a total of 6 hours and on thursday morning in class my body started to shut down. My stomach started feeling sick, and I kept dozing back and forth between consciousness. I finally left class after the first hour, ate, which settled my stomach and then found the nearest couch in the school and slept for 90 minutes. Got up, and on my way to my next class my cell went off and it was working calling me in again for tonight. So I skipped the rest of the school day, went home, napped for 4 hours, and then went into work for 9 hours.
    What a week so far..I definately won't be able to accept anymore school night shifts. Thats freakinig painful.

    Diet:

    Comments: Diet has surprisingly stayed on track. I've been eating about 1700 cals a day still with a 30/40/30 split.

    Training:

    Comments: On Wednesday I trained Legs after school. Thursday I took off.

    Comments: Took Dym X whenever I was gonna pass out when I shouldn't. This is the only stuff that kept me awake the last few days.

    Day 34 of 35
    Saturday, January 18, 2003


    Damn got called in again to work tonight. And I work tomorrow night too. That'll be a total of about 50 hours work this week, plus 22 hours of school.

    Diet:

    Tonight at work I tried out that new Chicken Flat Bread at McDonalds. It wasn't that impressive. It wasn't bad..I just wouldn't get it again. Also had an iced cappucino from Tim Horton's.

    Because I ate out, I cut back on the portions of a few other meals and I ended up the day with about 1850-1900 calories. So not too bad. Today was sorta my last day of cutting, since I fully plan on having Pizza Hut tomorrow night before work. Following that, I start my slow-bulk on monday.

    Oh ya, btw - here is a pic taken of me from this morning. I just woke up so no pump. Time to start putting on some mass. Not sure what my bf % is. Maybe somebody can guess for me.

    If I would have spent a few more weeks cutting on 1400-1600 calories, I'd really lean up nicely, but its winter time and I think I've put myself in a good position to start bulking. I've gained a lot more knowledge about my body during this cut, and am confident I can get really ripped over the summer.

    I am not naturally a lean person. In fact almost all my relatives are overweight, and I used to be pretty fat a few years ago before I started weight training. My bodyfat set point is probably 16-18%. Used to be even higher before I started lifting. I do what I can though.

    Well all done cutting after today. I will re-start a journal soon that will be focused on 7 weeks of slow gaining.

    Diet:

    Being the last day of my cut, I had pizza hut. So I guess it wasn't really a cutting day. Oh well. Tomorrow I start my bulking phase.
