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?

    Savannah

    Gonna start keeping track on here again, seeing as I'm spending more time around the forum again.

    Training has been inconsistent. Going to change that now that I have moved back home.

    Wake 7:30 am (this will have to be earlier form now on again)
    Coffee. thermos

    Bike- 25 mins intervals

    Meal 1- 4 egg whites, few small particles of yolk( I suck at pealing)
    - 1/2 cup oats
    - 1 tbsp flax
    - Greens supp

    Meal 2- Protein shake - scoop Vp2
    -1 banana

    Meal 3-chicken
    -brown basmatti rice 1/2 cup
    -3 CLA

    Meal 4-chicken
    -brown basmatti rice 1/2 cup

    Meal 5-chicken
    -steamed veggies
    -1 tbsp flax

    Meal 6-2 scoops Vp2-- frozen- just like icecream
    -3 CLA

    Ok, all meals were perfect. Water was good (prolly 4 L)
    My legs are killing me from yesterday's move and all the heavy lifting while going up and down many flights of stairs. And tomorrow is supposed to be leg day but since today was back and I never made it to the gym, there's my answer. Tomorrow is off work so lot's to do

    wake 6:30am

    Waking up with an alarm clock is quite consistent again.
    I'm stil;l unsure as to the set workout schedule i want to get back onto. I know I want to have a split routine to allow for more cardio time but I am not sure whether to make use of the bike here at the house which can give me a great workout, or use the cardio machines at the gym more. I'm leaning more towards riding the bike here at home for easy cardio b4 bed etc or a quite high intensity first thing in the morning and then keeping the gym for my weights and perhaps just a portion of cardio. I'll have something set by monday.

    Coffee thermos
    Bike 15 min high intense !
    (after the AST seminar last night, it seems doing this is best. I will do it several times a day to speed up my progress though)

    Meal 1- 2 slices spelt/wild rice bread (found it last night, this stuff is awesome)
    2 tsp flax
    5 eggwhites, 1 yolk, spinach in an omelette
    Greens, vits

    Meal 2- Scoop vp2
    1/2 cup oats
    tbsp almond butter

    Meal 3- grapefruit
    peice of chicken
    3 CLA

    Meal 4- chicken
    brown rice

    Meal 5- Salmon steak
    broccolli

    Meal 6- 4 egg whites
    tsp almond butter

    Shoot...I have to have a super loud alarm clock or else I can't wake up!

    When you do the 15 min. high intense cardio is it intervals or just straight out sprinting for 15 min or what?

    How was the AST seminar? Did ya learn some new interesting stuff?

    YUM almond butter! Lemme try some of that wild rice bread yo!
    "In the grand scheme of things, both things are quite superficial(obsessed with being muscular&ripped and incredibly strong). And yet lifting can teach you so much. My time at the gym--at least when I'm lifting--is invariably the high-point of my day. There aren't any questions; I almost don't even think. I go into an almost meditative trance-like state. Day-to-day worries become insignificant. I'm focused solely on the weight, and my reason for existence is clear. To move the bar and to improve on what I accomplished last time. Seldom are things so simple." - Blood&Iron

    "Most people cannot understand what burns in our blood, the gym is our addiction and iron is our drug. People don't understand why we commit hours a day to a goal where progress is so small it seems immeasurable, why we do cardio instead of watch TV, why eat 6 meals a day, why we insist on ordering diet soda or how we can drink skim milk. Most people will simply never grasp why we refuse to settle for a mediocre body." - Severed Ties

    Spoke to ronan as well. He just got back from a photo shoot in Washington for a good photographer so once his pics are up I'll direct incase anyone is interested.

    He's also done a shoot for Excercise for Men and was doing another one with AllAmerican guys last night. Seems as though things are picking up for him which I'm happy about.
