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?

    Mase- Thanks bro. I guess it wasn't too bad.

    Doug- Thanks man. I usually do heavy dips, but I was working out in a different gym and they have no dip belt, so I had to use weight I could fit in between my feet. I ended up doing negative dips also, instead of my regular dips.

    SW- HAHA, ya know I aim to please.....



    Weekly Weigh In: 175lbs. Up 2lbs from last week. Happy to see my weight go up as planned again.



    Food:


    Meal 1- Balance Bar, Cup of Milk

    Meal 2- Turkey Burger, Roast Beef Sandwich

    Meal 3- Chicken (Skin Removed), Spaghetti, OJ

    Meal 4- Chicken Sandwich, Cup of Milk

    Other:
    Multi Vitamin
    ETS



    Workout- Shoulders and Legs


    Seated Lateral Raises:

    15s x 15
    20s x 15 (+3 reps)
    25s x 10 (+2 reps)
    25s x 8


    BTB Rear Delt Cable Raises (each hand):

    10lbs x 15
    12.5lbs x 12
    20lbs x 10 (+5lbs)
    20lbs x 10 (+2 reps)

    185lbs x 5
    225lbs x 5
    270lbs x 5.5 (+5lbs)


    Jump Squats:

    Bar x 10
    65lbs x 5
    95lbs x 5
    115lbs x 3*

    *Bar slipped off back and smacked the ground haha. Was friggin' hilarious*



    Overall a pretty damn good workout. Shoulder session was dead on. I took a nap before I went, and I actually felt a bit sluggish before lifting. I was pleasantly surprised with how I did. Thinking about doing Borris' workout, so I decided to try some new things today. The overhead squats are def. different, and are going to take some getting used to. My reg. squats were ON tonight. I just felt so good sittin under the bar. I was afraid I may have gone shallow on one of the reps, so I pretty much went almost ATC on the last rep, and couldn't quite get it up. My spotter had to help me a bit. The jump squats were just something different. Everything was going good. 115lbs didn't seem heavy at all, but on the 3 rep, the bar slipped off my shoulder and I was able to slow it down a little bit, but it still ended up hittin the floor. Nobody said anything to me lol. I suppose the bit of cussing I was doing to myself made people realize I was already pissed. Overall VERY happy with tonight, if for no other reason than I finally felt comfortable squatting. I mean it felt right for some reason, it's hard for me to explain.

    Brute- Thanks bro. If the gym had bumper plates, it wouldn't have been such a big deal, but fact that they were steel plates kinda made the "bang" quite loud lol. The weight didn't seem heavy at all, it was just that it slipped off my traps.

    Stack- Thanks man, and welcome to the journal. The jump squats aren't anything special, just something I wanted to try.

    Mase- Thanks bro. I hadn't even thought about using the Smith Machine. I might have to try that the next time.

    cphafner- Thanks man and welcome to the journal. I haven't ever sat down and figured up how many calories I'm taking in. I do know I eat until well past full on most days.

    CC- Thanks buddy.

    Doug- Haha thanks man, and yea they were pretty fun.

    Brute- Might as well say it now lol.

    Tiger- Aight I gotcha buddy.


    Food:

    Meal 1- Nutri Grain Bar, Balance Bar, Cup of Milk

    Meal 2- 2 Chicken Sandwiches, Potatos, 2 Cups of Milk

    Meal 3- Turkey Burger, Chicken Sandwich, 2 Roast Beef Sandwiches, 2 Cups of Milk

    Meal 4- Balance Bar, Cup of Milk

    Other:
    ETS
    Multivitamin

    Workout- Chest and Back


    Benchpress:

    45lbs x 15
    115lbs x 10
    145lbs x 3
    155lbs x 3
    170lbs x 3
    180lbs x 3
    190lbs x 3


    Yates Rows:

    135lbs x 15
    150lbs x 12 (+5lbs)
    160lbs x 9 (+5lbs)
    190lbs x 6 (+5lbs)


    Dips:

    BW x 10
    BW x 10
    BW x 5*


    *Had to stop the workout here. It felt like I ripped something in my shoulder/chest area, right on the side of my chest near my armpit. I hurt pretty damn bad. I'm not going to do any shoulders tomorrow, probably won't squat because of how my arm has to sit, and probably won't do arms on Wed. I aggravated this **** awhile back and never let myself heal. I guess I'm paying for it now.



    As you can see I switched the workout once again. I've decided to use a little bit of stuff I know works for me, and things I've been reading as of late. Here's how it goes:

    Day 1: Upper focusing on Bench Strength and Back Size
    Day 2: Lower focusing on Squat/Leg Endurance and Shoulder Size
    Day 3: Rest
    Day 4: Upper focusing on Dip Strength and Back Size
    Day 5: Lower focusing on Squat Strength and Shoulder Size
    Day 6 and 7: Rest


    As you can see, I'm kind of using a hybrid type split. I'm going to focus on strength in my bench and squat areas, but I'm going to also continue focusing on gaining some size in my back and shoulder area.


    Overall, even though I had some intense pain, I enjoyed the workout. Bench is decent, at best. Yates Rows looked quite good.

    I know dude but it sounds like the tendon attaching the pectoral to...whatever it's attached to.... has tried to snap. You have to let this heal. I know it's gonna kill ya but it's the best alternative.

    SW- Yea I suppose you're right. I can't quit working out though, so I guess no shoulder or chest work for awhile.

    I think it is your rotator cuff that is hurting you. Try doing some light weight, high rep DB flyes for awhile. Add in some rotator cuff work too. I'll supply some links to exercises if you don't know how. If you can get your hands on some mini bands, they are great for toughening up your rotator cuffs. Do you ever work your rear delts?

    Machine- That would be awesome if you could send me some links to the rotator cuff work. I've noticed that if I stretch for a good bit, that it doesn't really hurt me during my workout. Today I didn't stretch as much as I used to, and ended up having to stretch multiple times throughout the sets. I do work my rear delts, though not to the degree of other things.
