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?

    SaulDsl's Powerlifting Journal

    Decided to start a journal on here, I'll be posting my reps and weight for Squat and Bench. I'm too lazy to do any others I'll be doing 5x5 for 4 weeks, then 5x3, than 5x2, than I'll max out. Right now I bench 330x1, and squat 405x1. 12 weeks away from 40 pounds more on both lifts

    Good luck with hitting your target of 40pounds. Is squating and benching ALL you do or all you are prepared to document in your journal??

    No, I do a strange form of training called Function Dynamics that makes me a better athlete, I do a few other lifts but they're not worth documenting, I get most of my balance and symettry from function dynamics because their philosophy requires to hit your body from every angle possible and to work through full range of motion. Thanks for asking Franji. Oh yeah and for more info on function dynamics, just go to http://www.fucntiondynamics.com

    Squatted 385x3 today.
    Monstar: I'm 6'4''. and my BF% is probably 15% around there. I play football, and that's why I lift for the most part, I am being looked at by Oregon State and a few other schools, so I really got to push it this season, being my senior season in highschool.

    light bench day,
    Monstar: My whole lifting workouts are massive and hard to keep track, because I only do the major lifts plus lat pull down, curls, and calf raises. The reason is because at function dynamics we do so much lifting and strange exercises to totally balance your body out and make your strength and cooridination in complete balance. by the way thanks for the compliment

    I know this journal's for your personal info, but more detail would be cool (if you have the time), just so we can get some idea of exactly what you're doing as you make your progress.

    Start of 3's, 315x3 Bench press

    225 lat pull downx5

    Barbell Burls 5 sets working up to 125x5

    6 sets of 8 pull ups each hands alternating grips each time plus 2 sets of seals in that

    20 incline pushups(chest to floor)

    20 Regular Push ups(Chest to floor)

    20 Decline push ups(chest to foor)- minimal rest periods in last 3 exercises

    Pull Overs 2sets of 50x10, grip was holding the weighted parts of the dumble not the grip part to keep shoulders even

    Dumbell Military Press, 2 sets, 50'sx15, 30'sx20 minimal rest in between

    Roller Coaster push ups on bar's(hard to explain)

    -in between each exercise there is flexiblity incorparated, plus a 30 minute stretch and cool down at the end of workout
