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?

    Quito's WOrkout log

    My log dont waste the braincells to read it lol. in case you really are bored and read this my lifts are gonna seem erratic cause I do physical labor for 9 hours a day and it just depends on what I do that day sometimes my shoulders will be toast, biceps are pretty much always a loss same with most of my back so thats that explanation I'll put diet up when I get it figured out. Also I lift in my...room so its pretty much all dumbells do to the lack of a spotter I could lift at a gym except for I'm gone from 6:30 am til 10pm which means all the gyms are closed.

    Monday: Chest
    Warmup:
    DB flys: 15x10 10 sec. pause at bottom
    minute rest
    Sets:
    DB press: 55x10,8,8
    2 min rest between sets.
    Incline DB: 50x10,8,7

    Comment: I hate flys I'm sorry it doesnt matter how light I go it just rips apart my shoulders I'll pass. Another not is that I do my db press with my palms facing each other and go down as far as the dumbells will go which is why I use lighter weights.

    Diet:
    Bunch of friggin garbage woke up late didnt get to pack all my food for the day = waste of day.

    Welcome!!!!
    Some fly machines rip me up too. I find the fully extended arms machine version much easier on my shoulders.

    Some people here use www.fitday.com to track their calories.

    Shoulders (tuesday)
    DB Press:
    40x7,6,5
    then I had to speed to school curse you school for making me miss triceps.
    My shoulders were killin me for 2 days afterwards I always used to do more weight but now I use lighter weight and go down as fas as possible and feel it alot more. diets still up in the air I'll call it bulking since I want to start cuttin at the end of april.


    Back (Wensday)
    Deadlifts: 95x10, 115x10, 165x10, 185x6,6,6
    one arm DB rows: 65x8,8,8,8
    Chins: bodyweightx10x1
    So deadlifts were interesting havent done them forever so I kind of experiment with weight and form and damn my back was pumped afterwards I didnt even have bb rows in me so I did one arms instead and pullups were a lost cause seein as how they were an afterthought.

    Tuesday: Shoulders and Triceps
    DB Press
    Warmup: MPress: 60x10

    DB Press: 45x6(PR),5,4
    DB Side Laterals: 15x8,8,8

    Triceps:
    CGBP: 110x5,8,6
    Tricep Push Backs: 45x8,8,8

    Push backs felt awsome I think its a lift me and my buddies made up but i love the way they feel its hard to explain. You lay down on a bench with your head on the edge then you hold a barbell like its at the bottom of a full skull crusher (Bar behind your head) then you push back till right before your elbows lock and come back. Diet sucked today testing at school messed me all up then work did the same...then chocolate brownie cause I was pissed didnt help etc.

    More Goals: 3/16/04
    Get better at math so I can retest into higher classes save myself some cash
    135 CGBP
    Get better at basketball
    Cardio at least 3x a week
    Eat clean 5 of 7 days a week at a minimum
    get at least 1 gallon of water a day

    frickin week of no workouts later.....

    wensday:
    Back and Triceps
    Chins:
    bodyweightx10x3
    Cable Rows: 120x10, 105x10, 115x10 strip to 110x8
    reverse grip pulls: 120x8, 125x10, 115x10
    T-Bar Rows: whatever the bar weighs+50x10x3

    Triceps:
    Dips:weightx10x2 (the bars were to close hurt my traps like nothin else so that was that for that rack terrible so friggin narrow)
    Skullcrusher, pushback, CGBP Giant Set (god this hurts)
    50x10x3

    Rope Pushdowns:
    30x10, 40x10, 35x10, strip30x10

    I hate tbar rows and I hate the dip/pullup station terrible. The weights on the machines at the new gym are lots heavier or maybe i'm just not used to doing machines since its been 4 months but my buddy whos been lifting there for 2 months says they're definitly tougher than our last gym. And once again...i hate tbars

    I hear ya about the job messing up your physique/strength goals. There's a black hole of 4 days each week I can't train my spinal erectors, or they'll protest all day.

    Looks like you're doing well though. Just make sure you're eating enough!

    Tuesday:
    Back and Shoulders

    Back:
    Pullups:BWx10x3
    Deadlift:135x10,205x6,215x3,225x3(goal met)
    Cable Row: 105x10,120x10x3
    Reverse grip pulldown: 120x10x3

    Shoulders:
    DB Press: 40x10, 45x10(PR), 50x8(PR),50x6
    Side Laterals: 20x8, 15x8x3

    Deads kick ass and I made my goal about 6 weeks early on them pretty sure I could have done more but I wanted to lift everything else and was running out of time. Shoulders felt good feelin them today for once.

    4/5/4:
    Monday:
    Chest:
    DB flat: 70x6+2 forcedx4
    DB Incline: 60x6+2 forcedx3
    Cable Cross: 40x10,50x10,55x10
    decline flys: 20x10, 25x10x2
    HS Wide Incline: 1 ppsx8x3 with 10 sec neg on last rep

    Tuesday:
    Back:
    Deadlifts:
    225x6, 255x3, 255x2.5 (couldnt quite get it all the way), drop to 245X1
    Cable Rows:105x10x3
    Reverse Grip Pulldowns: 135x8x3

    Shoulders:
    DB Press: 45x10, 50x8, 6,6
    Side Laterals: 20x8x3

    had to go after that

    Thursday:
    Arms:
    DB Curl: 30x12 35x8,7,6,4
    Tricep Pressdowns: 40x10, 50x10,10,8 drop to 40x10
    Skullcrushers/CGBP/Pushbacks (tri-set): 50x10, 60x10x8

    Sucks that the small barbells go by 10 lb jumps going up 20% on skullcrushers wasnt the greatest feeling and my technique wasnt all that stellar but 50 was just too easy I could have done it for about 15 reps oh well. I need to get my damn lifitng schedule back together the last 2 weeks have sucked between registration and being sick etc. This week I'm hoping to make it at least 4 days so I can actually get some legs in.

    Monday 4/12/04:
    Chest:
    DB Flat: 70x10 (yea baby), 70x8,70x7
    DB Incline: 60x8,60x6,60x4+4 forced

    Shoulders:
    DB Press: 50x9,6,6+2 forced

    Cardio: Bike 15 minutes

    Shoulders and chest on the same day are a bad idea for me apparently, cardio felt good stoked about my flat DB strength goin up still more the 10 tonight were with no spotter so it was all me which is always a good feeling.
