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?

    Kipp- Glad to help

    Coke- no I'm trying to get un-fat, the amount of excess water I'm carrying should have stabilized by now so my weight should be a bit more consistant.

    Rob- Thats the plan once the website goes up, I'm hoping it's successful enough so I can retire and just play full time. I have a great job but poker is never work to me...

    Mid- My girls been trying to lock me down for the last 5 years...it ain't happening,lol....maybe when I get into my 40's or something but I figure I'll be rich enough to find a nice trophy wife or two,lol...

    Mase- We'll be putting up the first downloadable version of our holdem engine online on March 24th. It may not have a few minor options like bet ahead buttons but I want the site up and something to download for when I'm in Florida.

    Updates-

    Ok despite the pizza and pancakes last week my skinfolds decreased a total of 3mm. Since the gym lost the chart we don't know what bodyfat approximate that works out to but all that matters is that they go down.

    Whats odd is judging by the mirror I saw the most improvements this week cause of all the cardio I did yet I saw the lease skin fold decrease so just goes to show not to read to much into numbers and use a variety of ways to track your progess.

    Oh my weight also went back up to 189 so that was good.

    Other news...so my M3 is like 30 days off warranty and I'm having problems with the headlights and turn signals so I'm going to try and trade it in. Fixing my one headlight is approx $2K if there is no wiring problems....if I have a short somewhere which is blowing the HID bulbs I could be looking at $5K to find and fix it....so it's time to shop for a new toy....I was looking at the Mercedes SLK350 (maybe 55 AMG) but the availability is so low for them I either have to order one which takes 5 months (not an option) or settle for one they can locate and trade for. The AMG which had peaked my interest they want approx $7K over MSRP so thats out...

    Overall I wasn't impressed with Mercedes it seems if they don't have it on the lot they really stick it in you to get the model you want in the color you want (if your luckey) and forget about the right features....so I'm heading over to chevy after work to look at the new Vette..

    Any of you guys have either of these cars?....I know there not similar in anyway but there the only two I really have my eye on without having to finance anything....if I finance I'll buy something stupid like a Viper so I'm not even calling my bank....

    Mid- I have a 9-5 as a manager at Solgar vitamins but every morning I wake up and wonder why I even go in?...I just don't really sleep much anymore. I play poker from 10:00pm till 3:00am most nights of the week and I'm in AC every other weekend....if I told you what I cleared last year from poker alone you would think I'm lying or bragging.

    F=ma- Most certainly agree if you use the right services and research the car properly there are some great deals.

    You are my bestest friend ST, lol - ...seriously it's great that you are good at poker, nice deal to find one's niche. Take your time on the car front, I'd wait a minute and really key in on the very kind I wanted. Nice back day.

    get a lotus exige

    only 50-60k and definitely attracts attention. i was driving my dads elise (lesser version of exige) one time and these two random girls on the sidewalks flashed their titties at me. only downside is that they have very low ground clearance

    Mase- I usually don't like posting stuff like this and if any of you report me to the IRS I will hunt you down but I started 2005 with a poker bank roll of $1000 and ended with just over $126,000.

    Most of what I win goes towards the loans I took to build blacklabelpoker but I keep some to blow on toys (cars)....gambling isn't my vice...cars definitly are...

    Coke- Well turns out I didn't need to wait as White Plains Mercedes found me the exact car I wanted. Only 4 in the country set up the way I want but they secured one for me so I got the SLK 55 AMG in black with black and red leather.

    Mid- Rob hit it.

    F=ma- The lotus isn't an everday car you really need a second ride and the lotus uses magnesium wheels which chip easily in small pot holes. I know cause a friend of mine as one and the rims are $4000 each. He has a 1000 miles on the car and has already replaced 3 rims so while the price is nice it's completely impractical.

    Rob- was an awesome session I had DOM's till yesterday from it,lol

    Last night just blew out a session of arms

    all exercises were supersets with 1 minute of rest.

    HS preach curls 45 x 12
    staight bar press down 80 x 12

    HS preach curls 80 x 10
    staight bar press down 120 x 12

    HS preach curls 95 x 5
    staight bar press down 150 x 12

    Preacher curl 55 x 12
    Skull crushers 80 x 12

    Preacher curl 65 x 12
    Skull crushers 90 x 12

    Preacher curl 75 x 7
    Skull crushers 100 x 11

    bw Chin up x 10
    be Dips x 15

    bw Chin up x 10
    be Dips x 15

    Rested like 5-6 minutes then repeated above.

    Had such a serious pump that I was getting cramping in my forearm when I tried to wash my hair after the gym....anyone else get that?

    dropset 285 x 12 / 135 x 12

    DB Flyes

    55 x 12

    Mid- that makes two of us,lol

    Pup- Thanks, very pleased with how things are going lately...I suppose the extra test is what is letting me get away with the cheating I've been doing on the weekend cause I've let myself get a bit more out of control than I had expected and I still lost fat if I'm rock solid M-F. Also it's a hell of alot easier to lose fat at 190 than it was 165 due to the extra LBM so I guess it all plays a role. My water and supplements are also better this time around so I guess I'm finally dialing everything in....good thing is since I've been able to cheat as much as I have I have none of the cravings or fatigure that comes with dropping weight so I'll probably just keep dieting straight into june.

    Venom- Thanks bro felt like changing it up with the flyes this week but I might stick with the Flye's for a bit.

    Legs tonight-

    HS hack squat

    Legs/traps

    HS hack squat

    2 PPS x 12
    4 PPS x 12
    6 PPS x 12
    8 PPS x 12
    9 PPS x 12*
    *I was good for another few reps but I took #12 a little deeper than usual and my spotter needed to come in so that pissed me off....

    Leg press

    4 PPS x 15
    5 PPS x 15
    6 PPS x 12
    *started getting dizzy after set 3...not sure if it's just cause of the heavy sets on the hack, low carbs, or not having eaten but I wasn't feeling good after this....

    HS Leg extensions

    2 Plates x 15
    3 plates x 12
    4 plates x 12
    *was still feeling dizzy and started getting a little lightheaded so I called it quites here.
