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?

    Tuesday, September 18th - Day 2

    Training:

    No training today. Ran 2 miles at 6:45 am though. Also did sprints at 3:00 pm.


    Diet:

    Spot on, but damn this is hard. Stupid ass people who eat candy all day and have shitty lunches and poke fun at you cause you barely eat anything. Well, ****, maybe I don't want to be a fat ass or unhealthy and die at an early age like you, f00! Tennis practice was bad also; at the end, pizza was ordered. I was the only one who didn't eat any. Damn temptations so easy to give into, but I gotta keep the will power! Losing this 11 pounds will be hard, but well worth it in the end.

    Wednesday, September 19th - Day 3

    Training:

    Bench: 135 x 6, 185 x 6, 185 x 6, 185 x 3

    Squats: 135 x 6, 225 x 6, 295 x 6

    Gotta get my strength back up, but it will be suffering from my cutting cycle.
    Threw up today out my nose at tennis. Was going down to start my pushups and I felt like I was gonna barf and I held it in..it came out my nose instead. Ouch, what the **** was that from? Odd.
    Diet:

    Spot on except for 1/4 cup trailmix and some gum. People keep critizing me when I eat my can of tuna at lunch, but I don't care, they piss me off, but they will notice a change in 7 1/2 weeks, biatch!

    Thursday, September 20th - Day 4

    Training:

    Shrugs: 2 80 db x 30
    Lat Raises: 25 x 6
    Dips: 15 reps, 15 reps
    Preacher Curls: 65 x 6, 65 x 6
    Tricep Extensions: 80 x 6
    Pullups: bw x 15
    Shoulder Presses: 40 x 10

    Just did a bunch of stuff since it was a free day in weight training class.

    Diet:

    Went good for the majority of the day, but I ate a banana and about 3 cups of trail mix. Other then that, perfect. I think I might have a cheat day on Saturday. I think I want some chicken teryaki and maybe some nachos. Gonna try and stick to replace the chicken and nachos with two-three meals. Trying to keep my cals around 2000-2500 on my cheat day.

    Why was what I ate bad? It was just one fooking day out of the week. Don't infest my journal like last time.

    I can't balance them any other way. I don't have time to pre-make any of these meals. Lots of my days are busy 13 hours straight, not much time to pre-make anything to spread out and even my meals. Some are in the middle of class too and we're not supposed to eat in class. I have tried my best term, sorry it's not up to your standards.

    Heathgay,. here's some suggestions for ya:

    if you can make meals, open a can of tuna.

    open a can of tuna for more of your meals

    have some roast beef

    some chicken breasts that you can buy at the deli.

    just a few ideas...

    Everyone makes fun of me for eating tuna out of a can. Bah, fook them, those unhealthy bastards who know nothing about bodybuilding and weightlifting. One of my friends said that she noticed that I looked leaner. I can tell my waist is smaller and I have lost fat on my chest. Yay me..now time to get some calipers for those weekly bodyfat tests.

    squat - 315 x 1
    dead - 335 x 1

    wow I really tried

    Cleans are tomorrow, hopefully I'll get 205. Monday is the start of perfect form and less weight time. ATF squats, perfect ass down deads and curls all the way stretched, bench slow and controlled. I was thinking of doing rest/pause for squats and bench. What do you think? So for squat I'd do like 315 x 1, 315 x 1, 315 x 1, 295 x 1, 275 x 1, 245 x 1. Then bench I'd do something like 225 x 1, 225 x 1, 225 x 1, 205 x 1, 185 x 1, 135 x 1. Hmm....Deads, probably heavy 3's.

    bicep curls
    hammer curls
    tri extensions
    skull crushers
    dips
    flat bench db
    lat raises - 20 x 6, 35 x 3 (!)
    tricep pushdowns
    close grip bench press

    Will start listing all weights on monday.

    had another tennis match today, I lost singles 0-6, 1-6 and won doubles 6-4, 6-3. We played the best team in state..thank you, thank you

    Becoming more vascular, I like this. More veins in forearms coming out and on shoulders and bicep. Diet going quite well. I've been tired the last few days because of so much cardio and maxes and lack of sleep and from the low cal diet. I weigh about 180 now. I ate some beef jerky and some cookies(during tennis match) because Belial said I needed more calories during this week cause of all the exercise.
