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?

    BW + 40lbs x 10

    Overall a pretty good workout in my opinion. I came into the workout with a lot of energy, and it showed. Curl Jockey strength has gone up. Tricep strength is still climbing at a pretty good pace. Lats looked like they exploded while I was watching myself in the mirror. Could have done more chins but didn't wanna push myself too much. I'm going to try using the 75lb DB next time for my decline situps. Even though I'm small, I felt like a beast while doing those cable curls. My arms looked huge with the pump they were getting. Today was just a fun session and overall I'm VERY happy.



    I'm leaving tomorrow for the first paintball tournament of the year. The teams gotta drive 8hrs to Canton, Georgia. There are 61 teams in our division, and most of them have been playing together for at least a year. Our team hasn't been together long, but I feel like we have a chance at doing fairly well. If nothing else, this will give us a good idea of what we need to work on the most.

    You're a nice, fat squatting free-weight (opposite of mean, lean squatting machine)

    Great work, 325 is impressive.

    Tournament Results from The Hot-Lanta Classic


    There were 77 teams in our Division alone. The biggest divisonal turnout for this tournament series ever. Most of the teams there have been together for a year and a bit. Our team, Team Genesis, has only been practicing together for roughly 2-3 months, so we really had our work cut out for us.

    Rough Field Layout: http://www.supairball.com/home/news.php Scroll halfway down the page and you'll see roughly what kind of field we played on. Use that picture to visual the game by game analysis.


    Game 1 (Team Nobodys): I made it to the back standup, but my corner was muddy as hell and I ended up busting my ass. Slid out the other side of the bunker, but was able to scramble back in. Shot a couple of times, but couldn't get a good rhythm going. Ended up getting shot in the face. Played like **** and one guys gun was down. Not a good way to start the tourney. Team Genesis (0-1)

    Game 2 (Team Busdrivers): Was nervous going into this game. I heard Busdrivers was one of the favored teams. Off the break I was able to make my back standup. My dad got burned off break and another from the left side followed him shortly. Our snake player was able to dive into the snake (long bunker on left side of the field). Nobody saw him make the move. I was able to shoot down line and catch a guy playing sloppy. My buddy playin in front of me caught it in the face. Snake man slid down the snake and pegged 3 bodies. That left us with the 2 on 1 advantage. I was breaking paint like crazy but made the move up and caught the guy on the run. Grabbed and hung the flag with time to spare. Team Genesis (1-1)

    Game 3 (Team Xtreme Tactics): On break, made my bunker again. Dad and other left side got burned on break for second game in a row. Snake player made snake. I got gogged in the face for the second game. Shortly after my snake player got bunkered and shot about 12 times. We managed to shoot 2 or 3 of em out, but couldn't withstand the quick push they made. Team Genesis 1-2

    Game 4 (Team Illusion): Switched up and played the center bunker this time. Everybody made their bunkers this time. Shot a guy out at the center bunker. Left side got taken out. Game seemed to be heading for a stale mate, so I made a quick move up the gut and made a dive for the flag. Pulled back in tight but got nailed. We got the first flag pull which was needed. We all ended up getting shot out, but because the game took so long, they couldn't get a flag hang, and we won by points (mainly because of my flag pull). Team Genesis 2-2

    Game 5 (Team Damage Inc): Really got screwed this game by the refs. Everybody made their bunkers, but my front player was called out because of pink paint on his shoe, when the other team was shooting orange paint.... My buddy shot another guy out, but the guy played on and shot him back. No penalty was issued. I was last one in and got bunkered. No penalty issued on a guy that hande 2 OBVIOUS hits on his leg. We should've had that game long in the bag if the damn refs had done their jobs. "Officially" Team Genesis 2-3

    Game 6 (Dominion): Off break everybody made their bunkers. We got our guy into the snake. He drew a lot of fire, but me and my back left were able to lock down the left side of the field and take the heat off him. I shot the guy in the center out. Snake men shot out two guys. Me and my right side front player got shot out. Dad and back left guy pushed the field and that combined with my snake player was too much for Dominion to handle. We won the final game with almost a perfect score. "Officially" Team Genesis 3-3

    4 of the 6 teams we played made the Semis, so we didn't play any scrub teams.

    Overall we played some good ball. Took us a game to realize the level we would actually have to play at. Communication was pretty good. Finally realized that putting all that paint in the air really helps roll teams. I'm really proud of everybody and I know that before long, we we'll be a contender. The tournament was awesome. Fields could've been a bit better, and the refs sucked, but overall I had a blast, and we proved that even though we don't have near the experience most people have (our snake players played paintball a total of 2-3 months) we can be and will be competitive.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.
