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?

    Wow it's been a while - my last post was in 2005. I'm horribly out of shape right now at 186.7lbs. I'm wondering whether or not I should use this journal to help me get started with the weights again.

    I guess I will try this. My last workout was on 11-02-2005 and was push day(emphasis incline), so tommorow is my next workout, and this will be pull day(emphasis back).

    I will not diet yet. I want to see if I can be consistent for a few weeks first before I go nuts with a strict diet. I know I won't see great results without a proper diet, been there before, but I want to be consistent with my workouts first.

    I'm excited about this

    Worn down, sore all over, no strength. The first 1-2 weeks will be tough. Rest day tommorow.

    CoCoa Yea consistency is the key, must stick with it. I'm glad I have a rest day tommorow, I need it

    CoCoa - Thanks man, it's tough because I've been so sore but it will get easier. I'm already not nearly as sore as I was the first couple of days.

    Todays workout almost didn't happen. I was running late and barely had time to squeeze it in. But I did it, and I am glad I did. Tommorow is push day, emphasis incline.
