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?

    Wannabe Wannabe Like Mikey

    Monday:chest/Tri
    plyo/sport specific

    Tuesday:legs

    Wends: plyo/sport specific

    Thursday:Back/Bi

    Friday:shoulders
    plyo/sport specific

    I'm going to really try to keep this one going haha

    anyways this is kindda what my split is going to look like starting Monday. i been bulking all winter ,i would say it went pretty well some great strength gains, but i think i gained a little too much body fat.
    so now i look outside and i see the sun shining, so its about time to go run and play outside, in other words cardio time. i hate run on the treadmill and stuff so i will be doing some plyometrics and some sport specific drills for basketball.

    goals: losses some body fat. and maybe put on some lean muscle
    increase vertical and speed.

    supplements: creatine and ON whey

    Nice leg workout.

    Do you find your height a problem with deadlifts?

    Good luck with everything...I was thinking the same as Exnor, I hear tall guys whine at least a little -

    hmm well i been on spring break, but instead of on the beach i am home in eastliverpool. i missed thursday and fridays workout becouse i went on a trip to vist a friend at college (ended up getting charged for underage drinking by the cops but thats another story).


    like i said im back home for spring break.i ended up doing legs today cuz my work out partner didnt want to do chest becouse he just did chest. and my home town gym is moving to another building so not everything is set up. so the only thing i could do was a set of squats and a sit of SLDL

    Squats 1x10 185lbs 1x8 225lbs 1x8 275lbs
    SLDL 3x8 215


    a horrble workout today, but tommorow im going to a differnt gym. and ill will be doing chest and tris along with the running that i didnt get to do today. and hopfully everything will return to normal
