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?

    Stein, Arnold wasn't necessarily correct. The fact of the matter was that he knew what worked for him and your basically taking his word for gospel.

    Also your quest is purely hypertrophy (as you've stated on numerous occasions). There's so many methods of training so why just box your self into soley using progressive overload?

    I know, a good instructor and helper at the gym also commented my training program, saying that it wouldnt build.

    But Ive been doing 3-4reps in everythinh since day one, so therefor I am experimenting abit.

    Glad you got a journal going Rock. You should put up a couple pre Arnold Routine pics up now and then take some more afterwards.

    Good luck!

    well it was really weird, I am not 100% how I did it, but I did it, and nobody noticed.

    Tryska is not that I am a stud, its just when I meet older girls, 20years+, I really seem to have it easier to communicate with them, they dont seem so like self proclaimed donnas or stuff, like more down to earth.

    yup another day in an ugly white boys life, no meaning, no whatever, just an ever lasting tunnel of hornyness and the obligatoric depression that follows.

    Did legs on thuesday :

    squats, my knees hurt to much, fook fook **** and hell, I usually dont care, and just train until I simply can move, pain is the most natural thing in weightraining.

    deads 120kgx12 120kgsx12 120kgsx12 120kgsx9 120kgsx7 120kgs5, very light today, dunno felt like it

    then 6 sets on calves


    Today Friday, back and triceps :
    trained hard and heavy as I could

    pulldowns x 4x8, weight not listed, but around 120kgs

    standing bent over barbell rows, 120kgsx3, 115x6+1 (jumpy) 110kgsx8 110kgsx6

    pushdowns 6sets, weight not listed, but heavy like hell, fire came out of my eyes.

    my own special triceps exercise, holding to hand weights, instead of a bar in french press, the same principle, but when reaching the top of the exercise, turning the down side of the hand weight up, for an extra heavy turn on the exercise.


    Well, lets see, I am fat, depressed and horney, all my friends are going to a big festival in denmark, they are going like 14guys together, I couldnt come got no money, so ofcourse I am pissed off and thinks the world stinks.

    shoulders,chest and biceps :

    the shoulderpresses went a bit heavier today, 85kgs! wooo, hehe, 85kgsx7+1, 85kgsx6 85kgsx6+1, 60kgsx12, got really fast tired on the last one...wierde

    some lateral raizes, 14kgs in each hand for 8rep, 3sets

    preacher raizes, my very own exercise, sit on the preacher and do one arm lateral raizes and dont touch the preacher bench with that arm, it really stings.


    incline dumbell press, exactley the same as last time, blaah

    incline dumbell flys, used 50s for 8 reps, for 4 sets, I love this exercise! mmmm!

    preacher curl 4 sets x 50kgs, really bad session, blaah

    chest and arms look pretty good in that pic, Stein! Traps also look to have a good sweep.

    why worry about abs when you are PACKING ON MONSTROUS AMOUNTS OF ROCK HARD MUSCLE!



    P.S. I wish I had pecs that looked as thick as yours... mine just can't seem to 'fill out' nicely. Or maybe they just look that way because I have a thick/wide ribcage.

    Your chest looks really good. It covers a lot of area. Looks like you have some awesome potential.
