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?

    Not really any DOMS today, which is pretty surprising, I thought my triceps would be quite sore. The only soreness is around my shoulder blades. I am gonna have to order one of those 11lbs. containers of Whey protein from supplement direct. Pro Complex is too pricey to be buying every week. Tommorow is Squats/Leg Assistance day.

    135X5 (2)
    165X5
    185X5
    205X3

    Good sets. Not bad at all. 205X3 was much prettier than it was earlier this week. 215 wasn't hard at all.

    Push Presses-
    135X5 (2)
    165X5
    185X3
    205X1

    Good sets here too. 205 was pretty hard. Its pretty hard cleaning these to my chest after all the hang cleans done before hand.

    Bentover BB Rows-
    135X8

    Eh, I was pretty wiped by this point, nothing spectacular.

    Today was supposed to be Leg/Assistance day, but due to school starting back, and my dad coaching football I am going to have to switch Leg day and Deadlift/Clean day. Diet is excellent today. I ordered an 11lb. bag of whey from Supplement Direct today. It has enough protein to last 2 months, at the same price that Pro Complex costs, and it only lasts one week. Tommorow is DE Bench Press.

    DE Bench Press

    Bench Press-
    135X3 (9)
    225X1

    Speed was great today. 225 flew off my chest. Explosion is coming along nicely. I am hoping this speed work will get me past my 300lb plateau.

    Lateral Raises-
    15'sX10
    25'sX6 (2)

    Meh.

    CG 5 Board Press-

    255X3
    265X2
    275X1
    285X1
    295X1

    Great sets. About a 6" ROM. 2 second pause on each Rep. Index finger on smooth.

    DB Flyes-
    35'sX10 (2)

    LoL, not hard to tell I havn't worked my pecs in quite a while. They will be mighty sore tommorow.

    DIET

    Terrible. Not even worth posting.

    COMMENTS

    Pretty good workout. Diet was simply horrible. I got plenty of protein, but the other ratios are way out of whack. I weighed 225 today. If I don't get back down to 220 in 2 weeks, some cardio may have to be implemented

    Today was my first day back squatting. It went horribly, to put it modestly. It is going to take forever to get my squat back up to 350+. It also got me to thinking. I am making myself do a routine that I do not enjoy so I can become more athletic, but I don't play any sports, so why the hell am I doing this routine. I thought about doing westside, but then I thought, I am not really that into powerlifting. So, I have decided to do a bodybuilding split. I am actually going to stick with it. I am a recreational lifter, not a competitor, so I should do what I want to do. I am going to do shoulders later tonight.
