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?

    Legs
    1.Squats- 185x5
    2.SLDL- 245x10
    3.Leg ext- 180x8


    These sets were not to failure. Next week I will go easy again and then baseball ends. From there on it will be 2 work sets of each exercise and they will be taken to failure(or as close as possible on squats and sldl).

    Why only one set of each? That must've taken you like 15 minutes.

    Like I said, I was going easy on legs. I have been experiencing pain in my right quad after my baseball games for the past 8 weeks or so. It lasts for a few days afterwards. I only have one more day of baseball coming up this weekend. As long as it feels fine, I will be back to hard leg training the week after next.

    Chest, Delts
    1.Inc. db press- 80'sx6, 85'sx3
    2.Dec. flye- 35'sx10
    3.Seated db press- 65'sx1
    4.db laterals-15'sx12


    I used so much energy to get the 65's up on shoulder presses, I could only do 1 rep. I think if I had a spotter to help get them in position I could do a few reps. I'll stick with the 60's for next workout.

    Nah, no spot. I usually stand with them at my sides. As I sit down I let them sit on my knees. Once I get ready, I take a deep breath and swing them up, one knee at a time. From there they are right in position and I start. For some reason, I feel more comfortable doing these than flat or decline. The shoulder presses are the hardest. It took everything I had to get the 65's up and then I had nothing left.
