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?

    Okay well I suppose it's time to start a journal for myself. Just now beginning a new regimine (only my second TRUE regimine ever). No flames please, I'm pretty new to lifting (I had a semester of weight training my 9th grade year but I never really got any result. Our coach was a VERY HIGH VOLUME guru - which is why I don't really like high volume very much) and I'm not very strong. Oh and anything in parenthesis is what I actually did, for example:

    2 - 4 reps @ 100lbs (3 reps) = I did three reps

    Shoulders & Calves

    Shoulders

    Military Press
    2 x 6 @ 45lbs - 1 minute rest (6 reps, 7 reps)*warm-up
    2 x 2 - 4 @ 75lbs - 2 minutes rest (4 reps, 4 reps)
    1 x 4 - 6 @ 65lbs - 2 minutes rest (6 reps)

    DB Shoulder Press
    1 x 4 - 6 @ 20lbs - 2 minutes rest (6 reps)
    1 x 6 - 8 @ 15lbs - 2 minutes rest (12 reps - felt too light)

    DB Side Raises
    1 x 8 - 10 @ 10lbs - 3 minutes rest (10 reps)

    Notes: think I need to add weight to the last set of Military Presses and the DB Shoulder Presses, it all felt too light.

    Calves

    Calf Raises (using barbell, power rack, and wooden block )
    2 x 14 - 20 @ 185lbs - 1 minute rest (20 reps, 20 reps)
    2 x 18 - 24 @ 135lbs - 1 minute rest (24 reps, 24 reps)

    Notes: Calves felt GREAT! Awesome burn. I got a better burn from doing them w/ my power rack at home than on any machine at the gym!

    Abs and Thighs

    Crunches
    2 x 14 - 20 1-1/2 and 3 minutes rest (24 reps, 24 reps)

    Notes: abs were sore as hell, I haven't worked them in a good long while!

    Squat
    2 x 6 @ 95lbs - 1 minute rest (6 reps, 6 reps)*warm-up
    2 x 2 - 4 @ 175lbs - 2 minutes rest (4 reps, 4 reps)
    1 x 4 - 6 @ 150lbs - 2 minutes rest (6 reps)

    Leg Extension
    2 x 6 - 8 @ 45lbs - 2 minutes rest (0 reps, 0 reps)

    Notes: didn't have time to finish, had to meet my friends at 4:00 , plus I couldn't figure out what weight to use?!?

    Leg Curl
    2 x 4 - 6 @ 45lbs - 2 minutes rest (6 reps/30lbs, 8 reps/20lbs)
    1 x 6 - 8 @ 35lbs - 2 minutes rest (0 reps)

    Notes: didn't have time to finish these either, couldn't figure out what weight to use due to weird leverage (it's a rinky dink leg-curl/extension attachment for my bench.) I think I'm going to get an ankle strap so I can do this w/ my pulleys.
