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?

    Nice job on the squat Little Big Man! Do you compete as a lifter or for a sport or just cause you like to lift?

    Bruteman , I use to lift primarily for track. I was a sprinter/ hurdler and oly lifting and pylos were
    more beneficial to me than regular bodybuilding. Now I just do it because I enjoy it and it relieves stress.

    Fri July 11th
    3 giant sets
    Close grip bench 67.6x10, 77.6x8x2
    Dips (BW+27.6)x7, (BW+27.6)x8, (BW+27.6)x8
    BB overhead extension 55x6, 60x6x2

    2 giant sets
    DB curls 25x6x2
    BB curls 45x6x2
    Preacher 37.6x6x2

    Reverse wrist curls 37.6x6x3
    Wrist curls 77.6x6x3

    That's the workout I came up with for my arms. Going to do it Mon & Fri
    and no other workouts for a 4 week cycle. It's similar to Chris Mason's arm
    routine article posted on this site. I'm somewhat annoyed that I'm dropping all
    my favorite lifts, but sometimes one has to sacrifice to get what he/she wants.
    And right now I want bigger arms. I'm holding off on the bigger boobies, although
    they're getting some work with closegrips and dips. Although I'm using light weight,
    the giant sets really took a toll on my arms. They are quite sore this morning.

    pruneman thanks

    Mon. July 14th - reps x sets
    3 giant sets
    Close grip bench 82.6x8x3
    Dips (BW+30.4)x8, (BW+30.4)x9, (BW+30.4)x6
    BB overhead extension 55x8, 60x7, 60x6

    2 giant sets
    DB curls 25x8, 25x6
    BB curls 50x6, 50x2
    Preacher 37.6x6, 37.6x7

    Reverse wrist curls 37.6x8x2, 42.6x5
    Wrist curls 77.6x8, 77.6x9, 82.6x5

    Giant sets suck! I recommend you try them if you haven't. I increased reps
    or went up in weight in most sets. So far so good, but my bis were killing me
    during the 2nd set. I only got 2 reps for bb curls Gonna move them after
    preachers to see if that helps any.

    3 giant sets
    Close grip bench 82.6x8x2, 87.2x8
    Dips (BW+30.4)x9, (BW+35.4)x8, (BW+35.4)x7
    BB overhead extension 60x6x2, 60x8

    2 giant sets
    Hammer curls 25x6, 25x6
    Preacher 57.2x6, 57.2x5
    BB curls 55x4, 45x4

    Reverse wrist curls 42.6x6, 37.6x8x2,
    Wrist curls 82.6x8, 82.6x6, 82.6x6

    I felt like crap today, didn't eat enough. But I still managed to work my way
    up in weight on the exercises. Only two more weeks of this, then I can start
    doing something more fun like squats. Arm exercises are gay.

    Side Note: The last two weeks or so in Manhattan have been great. It's actually
    stopped raining and the weather's been beautiful, which means women are wearing
    very revealing clothing. Lots of nice jiggling to admire. Hooray for boobies and bubble butts.

    3 giant sets
    Close grip bench 97.6x8x2, 107.6x8
    Dips (BW+35.4)x9, (BW+35.4)x8, (BW+35.4)x7
    BB overhead extension 45x8x3

    2 giant sets
    Hammer curls 25x8, 25x7
    Preacher 47.2x8, 47.2x6
    BB curls 45x6, 45x6

    Reverse wrist curls 42.6x8, 42.6x6, 42.6x7
    Wrist curls 82.6x8, 82.6x7, 82.6x7

    With the little work that I've done the past couple of weeks, I
    noticed my tris are slightly more noticeable but I attribute that
    to genetics, both my dad and brother have big tris and forearms.
    Don't really care so much about the bis but they're getting bigger
    as well. Routine seems to be working but I can't wait till I'm done
    with it.

    Nice workout Dude! I can't wait till you're done with this routine either! It's odd reading someones journal and seeing the same workout every time.
    Your seem to be progressing well. I hope you are getting the results you wanted.

    Bruteman, Even though I can't wait till I'm done with this routine, the
    results are pretty good. I got impatient and measured yesterday. I gained about
    3/8" on both my arms. They're still small compared to a lot of the guys on this
    site, but I'm happy with the results thus far. One more week!

    Fri Aug 1st - reps x sets

    Dips - n/a

    Wrist curls 97.6x6, 97.6x5, 97.6x5

    Well this marks the end of my arm cycle. I put on a little size on my arms which
    I'm happy about. Hoping all the wrist work I've been doing will help my DL and all
    the tri work with my bench. Still thinking of a boobie routine, so I'll go back to my
    old routine in the meantime.

    Mon's routine looks like this:
    Snatch Balance
    Snatch
    Back Squat
    Goodmorning

    chops Thanks for stopping by to read my journal.

    Mon. Aug 4th
    Snatch Balance 65x4, 95x4, 95x4, 95x4
    Snatch 65x6, 95x2, 95x2, 105x2
    Back Squat 135x6, 135x6, 185x8, 185x6, 185x6, 200x5, 215x2, 215x2, 230x2
    Good Morning 95x6, 135x6, 135x6, 135x6

    My body needs to get readjusted so I kept the weights down. I couldn't believe how stiff
    my shoulders were today. It made snatch balancing and snatching a bit uncomfortable.
    My squats and GMs were fine but my hams and my ass are incredibly sore right now.

    Nice to be back at the gym after spending the past month working out at home. Some
    very nice eye candy there today. Two new receptionists working, one brunette and one
    blond. Didn't get too much of a look at the blond since she went off to help some lady.
    As for the brunette, she was wearing a finely tailored blouse that accentuated her
    extraordinary cleavage. Quite a sight to behold. Jen 1 looked ravishing as always with
    her beautiful ballerina legs. She was wearing a white tank top that revealed her shape
    quite well. As for her shorts, they were the equivalent to male briefs. Evil woman. They
    showed off her legs nicely though and that's all that matters. I've always wondered what
    it would feel like to have those long legs wrapped around me. "Red" was there too, but
    she kept giving me the look of death. So I avoided her. I didn't see any of the other usual
    suspects, but I'm farely certain I will soon enough.

    Wed.
    Snatch Heave Balance
    Snatch
    Deadlift (Snatch Grip)
    Bent Over Rows
    Chins

    Chins (BW+7.5)x6x3

    Thurs Aug 7th
    Clean 115x6, 135x2, 155x2, 165x2, 165x2
    Split Jerk 95x4, 115x4, 115x4

    Incline Bench n/a
    Front Squat 135x5, 155x5, 185x5, 185x5


    Plan to start doing more doubles and triples next week. Body's re-
    adjusting rather nicely. Soreness is minimal. Still need to get more
    sleep than I've been getting. Need to work on c&j form. It's
    horrendous especially the jerk. Tried jerking 135 and had to muscle
    it out - f-ing ridiculous. So I worked on form with low weights.

    Gym rant/rave... some men seriously need to be taught the fine art
    of flushing a toilet. Nuff said. Lots o pretty women to comment on but
    to lazy to type.

    Sat Aug 9th
    planned arm routine similar to the one I used during my arm cycle

    Overhead Squat 65x6, 95x6, 115x6
    Snatch n/a
    Deadlift 135x6, 185x6, 225x6, 245x4, 275x3, 315x3, 325x3, 335x1, 335x1
    BentOver Rows 115x6, 135x6, 145x5, 145x4
    Chins n/a

    Only had a half hour to workout so I dropped my snatch and chins today.


    Thurs. Aug 14th r x s
    Hang Clean (below the knee) 115x6, 135x2, 155x2, 165x2
    Bench 135x6, 155x6, 165x6, 175x5, 185x3, 185x3
    Incline Bench 95x6, 115x6, 135x5
    Front Squat 135x5, 185x5, 185x5, 195x3

    Hammer Curls 30x7, 35x4
    BB Curls 55x7x2
    Preacher Curl 55x7x2

    Starting to modify my routine to accomodate my goals. I was so pumped
    today because my boobs seem to be growing. I squeezed my boobs like
    never before on bench. Incline was quite an experience though. That last
    set felt like the heaviest goddamn thing I ever lifted. The things I do for my
    boobs.

    Verizon cellpones rule...at least in nyc. Only ones that workerd during 9/11
    and the only one working yesterday during the power outage. Thank God
    my mom and I didn't have to go into the city. My brother and dad didn't fare so
    well. But at least we were able to communicate. Verizon

    Close Grip Bench 105x8, 125x6x2
    Dips (BW+37.5)x8x2, (BW+37.5)x6
    One Arm Lat Raise 30x6x2
    Rear Delt 30x6x2
    Front Raise 20x6x2
    BB Reverse Wrist Curls 60x8, 60x6
    BB Wrist Curls 100x7x2
    Seated Calf 100x25, 120x20

    Had quite an ordeal with dips. One of my backpack straps ripped completely
    off and sent me stumbling off the dip machine. Slightly tweaked my shoulder
    in the process. Must have been a sign from God. Probably teaching me a
    lesson for oogling at women too much and not concentrating enough on what
    I was doing. Time to buy a dip belt.

    Hang Clean (above the knee) 115x6, 135x3, 165x2, 170x2
    Flat Bench 135x6, 155x6, 175x6, 185x4, 185x3x2
    Incline Bench 95x6, 115x6, 135x6
    Front Squat 135x5, 185x5x2, 195x5

    BB curls 60x6x3
    Preacher curls 55x6x3

    Couldn't do my hammer curls since the dumbells were taken, so did
    extra sets of bi & preacher curls. The 135 on incline wasn't as difficult
    today but still couldn't get that sixth rep out. Bench is progressing fine.
    Cleaning from the hang just for variety.
