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?

    Jack Daniel's Bastard Son

    Well, well, well.........I finally climbed out of my drunken, Jack Daniel's fueled stupor to get a new journal together. The old one and old times are long since gone and its time to start anew. I'm a slacker what can I say? And when you let whiskey and Killians control the better part of your life bad things happen. Like losing 5 lbs of muscle. Or becoming even weaker than you once were. Sure I've had some good times, but on the whole I should have kept up with my lifting. Alot of things kept me away, but its all excuses. So here it is my first workout in a solid 2 months.

    November 24, 2003 Tri/Chest Day

    Weight: 155lbs

    Bench Press: 165x8- wow did this gone down A TON! I couldnt believe the drop....../sadness

    Incline Bench: 135x3x8- see above

    Tricep Pulldown: 65x8, 70x8, 75x8

    Dips: BWx3x10

    Pushups:BWx3x10

    Flyes:90x8, 100x8, 100x8

    So there you have it. Point and laugh....please. I deserve it.

    Leg day tomorrow........aye de mi!

    Good luck with the new journal. People often initially make gains quickly after taking time off due to factors such as muscle/nueral memory.

    Hey mike! Good to see you getting back into things! I was beginning to think you were an alcohol induced hallucination. I said I was getting back into things like a month or so ago and never did...I've been priming myself for the past couple weeks to make a comeback. I'm going on a little trip Thursday till Tuesday, but I think after that I'm going to start up again.

    Money situation is tight at school right now though, don't know how much of a 'bulk' I'll be able to do. I just want to get back into it and worry about gaining Christmas time.

    Good luck you alcoholic bastard!

    25 November 2003 Leg Day

    Weight:155 lbs

    Squats: 185x10(n), 185x8(n), 190x6(n)- Oh back to squatting and did it feel good or what?! I missed it so much and I gave up a night of whiskey for them!

    Calf Raise: 220x3x10(n)- I did these on the standing machine. Eh. Probably move to the seated one with the plates next week.

    DB Lunges: 50x8(n), 50x8(n), 55x8(n)- These plus the squats left me with some serious jello legs.

    So this was my 1st leg day back. I REALLY felt the squats and the lunges. I think this workout looks a little light, but Im sure I will feel it tomorrow. Im already getting up slow tonight.

    *******HOT CHICK REPORT******

    1. Hot Anthro Chick- yeah she's still around, I needed to get some notes off her today since I didnt make class in nigh on a week. I might see her out tomorrow. She's hot and blonde. What else does a man need?


    2. Hot Gym Front Desk Chick- This one is a hot greek chick. I dont have a shot in hell with her. In fact I think the flying machine I recently constructed has a better shot of going to the moon than I do of nailing this one.

    28 November 2003 Bi/Back Day

    Weight: 157lbs

    So I got back into it after a long turkey day and off day on friday. Turkey night I got drunk and came home late. My friend Kristen called to see if I was alive........at 2:30am. That didnt make my mom too happy lol. Last night was cool. We hung out at a friends house and three of us had guitars and jammed all night. Also stole a road barrell.

    DB Curl: 25x8, 30x8, 35x8

    Pullups: BWx8, BW25x8, BW25x8

    Low Row: 150x8, 150x8, 160x8

    Pulldown: 140x3x8

    DB Shrugs: 70x3x8

    Raquetball: two games, won 15-12, lost 15-3

    I didnt get a chance to do my other curls or DB Rows. So that sucked but I feel good.And I gained two pounds this week. SO booya!......

    ***********HOT CHICK REPORT********

    1. Hot Grey Tank Top Chick- Saw this one doing cool things on the leg machines. She had a nice, niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiice rack Made some eye contact, I think she was checking me out. Or she was getting a detailed description for the police report.


    2. Hot Amazon Chick- Ok ok. So shes 6 feet tall and she could kick my ass if needed. BUT! wow she has a nice body. Watching her running on the treadmill was worth getting stuffed in the locker. I swear!


    3. Hot Dark Haired Girl Chick: This one looks like a good gf. Just dressed in a simple sweat pants and t shirt. But she had the dark, dark hair that I love so much. Aye de mi!


    4. Hottest Girl in the Mall Chick- WOW! WOOOOOOOW! This one had it all. All the things that makes Michael want to jump into the river. Let me run down the list. Black knee boots. Curley Blonde hair tied up. Blue eyes. Tight red sweater. AND the one that sealed it..........Short plaid catholic school girl skirt!!!!! I saw this one. Sputtered something to my friends, drooled a bit, passed out in a puddle of my own filth.......wow.
