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?

    Classic Bodybuilding journal

    One of the main principles in the early days of bodybuilding was high reps, specially among Arnold Schwarzenegger, in this Journal that goes from 11 of june to 13 of august, I will follow a very high rep scheme based on what Arnold explains in one of his books.

    This journal is about one thing, the quest for Size, yes my friend size matters in this journal, becoming a bit leaner will also be an objective, strength is not important.

    This will also be quite weird, since I have always done 3-4reps in every exercise.

    But its SummerHoliday tomorrow and I can sleep and rest all day long, I am not going on any vacation this year, so I welcome the high reps to enter my muscle.

    ( I will also concentrate on great form in this journal )

    Here is what I will follow, and god damn its gonna be some hard trainings too, Rock will gather his viking spirit that sits deep from ancient times, to give this training program a divine edge.

    Monday : Shoulders, Chest and Biceps

    Shoulders :
    Seated barbell shoulder press 1x15, 2x12
    lateral raize - 3x12

    Chest :
    Lying dumbell presses 4x12
    lying pec flies - ( no I am not lying) 4x12(oooh...cha ching!)

    Biceps :
    Preacher curl 15x10 ( hehe, just kidding) 5x10

    thats 50 reps in the preacher right there, and I am gonna be preachin it too! GNNNNN, argh! urk!! grrr!


    Wednesday(wheres the wedding?) - legs and traps

    squat 4x15
    deadlifts 2x20

    Thursday : abs and calves

    weighted sit ups and standing calf raizes - 2x20 on both

    Friday : Back and trieps

    pulldown 4x12
    standing bent over rows 4x12

    french press 4x15
    pushdowns 2x20


    Thats it, it starts tomorrow on thursday, so an update will be given already tomorrow, with comments and news flash, stay tuned!
    A big thanks to all my friends in the USA, I am deeply grateful for your hospitality and kindness.

    It's about time you started a journal. Good luck on your quest to get huge.

    Hey, sounds good to me.

    BTW, as you surely know, Arnold also trained everything three times per week.

    Here is my adaption of one of Arnold's routines:
    http://www.wannabebigforums.com/show...ine#post203818

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesn’t realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    If you're not training to failure all the time, that's not an issue.

    But, of course, you should do what you think will work best.

    Good luck.

    Thanks Chasey

    12 of june.

    I had a dream last night, the dream was about a thing that enters my mind more and more latley, its called Steroids.
    In the dream I was taking them, and I was getting big and lean, it was all nice and comfortable, I didnt see any side effects.

    I woke up and I thought...steroids...or no steroids...steroids or no steroids...steroids or no steroids...damnit, and I still think like that.


    I was a bad mother fu***er at school today, like Shaft bad mother foker, I had an examn and scored a 100%, the highest score at my school for this exam, ooooohhh give me some mo! that was the bestes feeling.

    Scenario :

    Rock walks in to get to know his exam score, two teachers sit there and tell Rock, you got a 100% congratulations.

    funky music appears, Shaft walks in, and says, yousa baaad white boy, and Rock said, hell yeah shaft.

    And then the typical 70s bad ass movie angle, the camera starts off with showing the funky shoes and then they film up to the face, and thats how It was, and then funky music, and...oh I was hotter then a rollin dice.


    Eating : A bad day for eating

    yup, before my exam I had a bowl of oatmeal and light milk, 5 hours later no meals, I came home, ate 10eggs and 1 bowl of oatmeal and fell asleep, woke up 5 hours later and ate some slices of pizza and 3 bananas and 300grams of peanuts, and god damn it takes a long time eating so many peanuts

    Training :

    I fell a sleep, just plain tired....blahh, but tomorrow I will train with greater fury.


    Comments :

    Horney as a son of a bi***, its extreme, its not human to be so sexually "engaged", but I guess its good for my hormon levels.

    what am I trying to do here.....am I going to be the best natural bodybuilder in the world, or will I take steroids and be a medium bodybuilder, I might not be anything. My arms have good size now, I dont think they measure all that much, but the muscle bellies are suited for bodybuilding I think, hope so.

    Well, did the Vikings have steroids? That's what you have to ask yourself...

    P.S. I think "fury" is something I need to add more of in my training as well.

    Alright, got up kind of late this morning, around early noon.

    ate oatmeal and light milk for breakfast at 12

    ate 1 banana and 7eggs at 14.00

    trained from 14.40 to 17.40

    Training :

    I did 4 sets of 12 reps with the pulldown

    then bent over rows with 225lbsx12x4, like really far bent over, could feel pain all over my back, but who cares.

    then french press 4x12, 45kgs, not so much, blæh...kind of crappy sets, pain all over.

    then triceps pushdown, I really did balls to the walls on this one, screamed and turned and twisted and look like a mad man on the last reps, the weight is not given on the machine, so no point of writing that here.

    then close grips bench press 225lbsx7 and that three times

    Felt really pumped, arms felt like they were in the 47-48range, but ofcourse a major pump after a carb drink lies like pinoccio.

    Under the push down sets, this one dude said " ah that felt gooood right", and I was thinking, christ, whos this guy...sure it felt good mate, and he responded, it feelt gooood indeed, I was getting freaked out by that dude, god man, SHUT UP FREAKO.

    after workout meal, 3 chili dogs, 7eggs, and a little pasta and some milk.

    The last part of my training was execellent, and I wore a short sleave tight t-shirt to show of my pump to the girlies on the way home, I had my discman and had ac\dc on it, and I was feeling like a million dollars, then the feeling faded away, and another day is over.

    well the big "grown up party" was nice, talked to alot of them, was a cool night, I danced my famous disco dance and then theyb we left for town, I was drunk as drunk can be, and they didnt let me in on the 24years bars, and then I went to a 18year old bar place, hooked up with some girls I know, had a good time.

    When I got home, a page popped up with this sex telephone number, and I was so drunk I was like, yeah sure, and I called it just for fun, and it was me and some farmer talking to this girl, and I was like, jeez this is to lame, god damn you idiot Rock.

    I was invitied home to a girl, not this monday, but next monday, but damnit I have a girlfriend, damn...what do I do now...It never gets easy,
