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?

    When i think about the Chocolate Bar journal, WBB and all my fine friends from here, I am reminded of the phrase, "these are the ties that bind". There is a universal code among all those who walk into a room of weights and move 'em about, here is where we set our differences aside.
    Well said brother!!!

    Thankx everyone!! Taking some time away from the gym...did go in one day last week very light but undisplayed in here, the first in all the 8 years of not posting an actual workout in my illustrious log. Every session that ever took place this whole span of time had been posted with this one exception.

    I seemingly tend to lose ground the middle of August just before my birthday, it's consistently been this way the past few years almost like what many lifters go through around the xmas-new year season, lol. Really need to get back to it but there's too much going on right now, the good, bad, and the ugly - all of it...more than likely to resume things next week.

    Breaks are good everyone once in a while bro. Physically and mentally. Their are also other important aspects of life which I'm sure you are tending to. Enjoy the time away and come back harder then ever!

    I've been following your journal for a while, Coke, and I just want to say how inspirational seeing these numbers are to me. Your progression over the years is remarkable - as well as keeping the journal for so long. Great stuff, sir. Enjoy your break!

    For those that have been living under a rock, the new Mr Olympia is now the amazing Phil Heath, big time congratulations to him on reaching the pinnacle of the sport.

    This is a new era in professional bodybuilding and Phil clearly represents it flawlessly. The only other athlete that I feel would be deserving of the title is none other than Branch Warren who had to withdraw this year due to injury.

    September 26, 2011 - MONDAY

    CHEST & TRICEPS

    BENCH PRESS
    185 x 5, 215 x 3, 255 x 3
    265 x 3, 275 x 3, 275 x 3

    BB INCLINE PRESS
    175 x 8, 175 x 8, 175 x 8

    DB TRICEP EXTENSIONS
    65 x 6, 75 x 6, 80 x 6
    85 x 6, 90 x 6, 95 x 5

    BENCH PRESS
    165 x 8, 165 x 8, 165 x 8

    TRICEP EXTENSIONS MACHINE
    110 x 8, 120 x 8, 130 x 8
    140 x 8, 150 x 8, 160 x 8

    ----------------------------------------------------

    September 27, 2011 - TUESDAY

    BACK & BICEPS

    BB ROWS
    205 x 8, 285 x 8, 335 x 6, 335 x 6

    PULLUPS
    bw+40 x 6, bw+50 x 6, bw+60 x 6

    SEATED ROW CABLE CURLS
    40 x 8, 40 x 8, 40 x 8, 40 x 8

    This is enough to help me get back into it, could have gone heavier especially on flat bench, but experimented and did some speed work and even paused reps at times.

    I suspect things may be a little chaotic at first as I may be all over the place, that is unless I structure or get things planned out in the meantime...don't know what I want to do, haven't decided how to approach things moving forward.

    That Phil Heath is a monster. Also has great symmetry and doesn't have that HGH junkie look. Reminds me more of the Arnold era.
