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?

    I've cut my deadlifts...out of back day and put sldl's on leg day. I think this is better for me..cause my lowerback doesn't have enough time to recover normally.

    Crap..i've been sick for a whole week now with strep throat..It seems like anytime i get momentum going I end up getting sick and losing weight..Oh well what can you do. I really think i want to consider getting my tonsils taken out though.. I get too many infections on them.

    Back in business!!! Finally after like 3 weeks I got back to the weights. On last day of antibiotics so finally can eat my dairy after. Havent lost too much weight..and my strength on legs has increased.

    I've changed my goals. I really want to compete at some point so i have to set higher goals. Instead of cutting at 210lbs I'm going to start at 250. That should be at about this time next year.

    Today was leg day and i did (so friggin busy that place)

    squats 225lbs x 8 (come on 20.....i can do it!)
    extensions230lbsx10x5
    curls 110lbs10x6 square(4)
    smith raise 245x15x10

    My back is feeling dandy today. I think i might start being a fan of bb rows. Anyways I'm going to write myself a back routine to use for the next little while.


    chinups 2 sets to failure (slow)

    Barbell rows 8,6

    Pulldowns In front 8,6

    Cable Rows 8,6

    Shrugs 30,20

    I think this should be good!

    Congrats

    Good job on the 225 PR. I just got 225 a few weeks ago too. It was a pretty good feeling. I'm gonna be going for 235 in a couple of weeks. Race you there

    Hmmm haven't felt well all weekend. Kind of a weird sickness. I have headaches, short of breathness, lack of appetite, and chronic diarreah. Haven't held anything solid in my stomach in like 3 days so didn't bother to work legs today. I think i am going to take the week off from lifting.

    Just got back from a montreal trip of partying. Hmmm Haven't worked out in like 3 weeks. I hurt my knee like 5 days ago and it does not feel 100% better. Been smoking a lot. I'm going to bust my ass off on my squats tomorrow and if i am having a lot of trouble getting to 13(which I will) i'm going to pause at the top of the movement to regain composure. From now on i'm going to stick to my goals...

    squats
    135 x4
    225 x4
    245 x4
    265 x2

    extensions round one
    255lbs x 10 x7 .......(cleared stack) proceed to new extension machine

    donkey dick press
    70x10
    105x10
    145lbsx4

    Curls square (4)
    150lbs x 5

    Decent workout
