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?

    If you can't be a good example, at least be a terrible warning.

    So anyway, I am back in Ontario for a few days of unexpected (and unwanted) vacation time..... If you haven't heard, a hurricane hit Halifax on Sunday night, basically tore the city to shreds, my residence was closed indeffinitely because of damage, and the university is closed until next week. SO back home I flew this morning I am gonna try to get into my old gym, but if not, I'll be back training in a week, and will be hitting some major journal entries then

    Rook> I kinda like my new journal Besides, I'm starting on a new phase of training, so its a bit of a break line, hehe.

    ps. hit me on MSN, maybe I can coe to K-Town whilst home..

    Snow> tuttut No other comment

    Mik> I agree, lets get us a linch squad and go down there

    so tonite was a chest workout.... after finally getting back home after being exacuated, and the gym being closed, a nice session was in order....

    incline DB: 70x12, 90x9, 105x7, 100x5, 70x7
    Flat DB: 85x12 , 85x12, 85x9, 85x4, 85x3
    Incline flyes: 3 sets
    cable flyes: 3 sets


    Diet: Off today all my food was ruined because the power was out for a week, so I just ate on campus. I got groceries tonite though, so I'll be back on tomorrow. I feel bad for a mate of mine. His power came back on for about 6 hours, in which time he bought $100 worth of food... then the power went back off, and ruined that food too, so he had to rebuy everything for a second time today! poor guy!

    ANyway, I'm off, finance class calls!

    Good to hear everything was OK in your house Shane. What's up with doing more for DB inclines than DB flat? I'm just the opposite LOL.

    haha whats goin on man?

    Well, for me, I find that whatever excercise I do first, I push more weight, and then my chest is more fatigued by the time I get to the next heavy push. Also today I was trying to do some higher rep burnouts with a lower weight for flats. I find that it works well, but just doesn;t look as impressive to the guy standing behind you

    So whats goin on with you? I haven't heard from ya in a while, staying busy??

    Nice workout session, Shane. You do love training chest, eh. It would have been great to hook up with you when you were in town, however, I just didn't get down there this weekend. Maybe over Christmas.

    Yo, I'm doing well Shane. Still going out too much on weekends and having fun, but otherwise.....lifting hard, working hard, dieting well, etc.

    Hey, I just read your other two page journal LOL and came across this:

    Got some good stuff worked out over the last few days, so now I know where I'm heading. Honestly, there are some things in my life that I'm not comfortable with at the moment, so we'll see what happens. Theres some stuff about me (mainly related to my current list of priorities) that some people just dont seem to understand that needs to get sorted out, and soon.

    Care to share?

    Damn you are a big ole boy these days. Lean down some son.
    peace-

    haha tell ya what mate, I'll fill ya in on MSN sometime? I don't wanna go posting too much, I already learned once what posting too much info in a journal can do, hehe

    And yeah I am gettin big now. I am actually going to start slimming down a bit. I want to get to around 10% or so I think and hover there. At that weight, as of now, I should be in around 235 - 237lbs which would be a good base to go from when I get ready for a show. Honestly, I have just been concerned with packing on as much size as possible lately, and eating like a phuckin horse! But at least I can cut it off easy, hehe

    Anyway, I'm off to bed, I'll post the workouts tomorrow!

    ciao

    yeah..... so anyway I'm bored......

    OK yesterdays workout was arms...

    Workout

    4 sets BB curls, supersetted with alternating DB curls
    4 sets Seated incline simultaneous DB curls
    2 sets of 21's

    4 sets skullcrushers (1.5 plates per side on a cambered bar)
    4 sets pressdowns
    4 sets rope extensions
    2 sets close grip press

    Diet

    Diet was good,s till getting on track again. My meals were all good, with around 375g of protein, 600g carbs, and some fat in there as well

    By next week, I'll have things totally sorted out. I am still trying to get groceries sorted out after losing everything last week. And I am still on a hard bulk diet, so things were a bit more slack. However, I have made a pact that by Monday night, my diet will be spotless again, hehe. Planning to lean down to about 240lbs I think by mid November. Cutting for the show will begin the first of January, and maybe even sooner if I am not lean enough for my liking. So basically, looking to lean off gradually between now and mid November, maintain for a few months, then cut hard to get down to about 4% or so.

    Anyway, I'm outta here, gotta hit the gym and then work for a bit!

    ciao

    Shane
