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?

    You realize that when I finish this vat of whey that's sitting on the kitchen counter, I have to try this Nitrean shtuff that so many of you are talking about.

    Stash
    me: so this is the "pump" you speak of
    me: I could never figure out what people were talking about
    Relentless: like an all over body hardon, yeah

    Recovery Day 8

    Weight- 159.5
    Down 3lbs from two weeks ago. I'm pretty sure its a combination of the loose skin the Doc cut off, and the fact that I've been eating just to maintain weight over the last week. Not too concerned about it because it just means I really have't lost any muscle, just loose skin.

    Food:


    Meal 1- Nitrean, Milk, Oatmeal

    Meal 2- Protein Plus Bar

    Meal 3- 2 Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

    Meal 4- Buffalo Bites, Dirty Rice

    Meal 5- 2 Chicken sandwiches with cheese and whole wheat bread, Milk

    Meal 6- Nutri Grain Bar, Balance Bar, OJ


    Totals:

    Calories- 2919
    Protein- 245grams
    Carbs- 313grams
    Fat- 68grams


    Diet today was great. Had a lot of good lean food, and my fat levels stayed down. Because of the loss in weight, it's def. time to start eatin' again.


    Workout- Biceps and Triceps


    Biceps-

    Barbell Curls- Lower Partial
    45lbs x 10
    55lbs x 10
    65lbs x 10

    Barbell Curls- Upper Partial
    45lbs x 10
    55lbs x 10
    65lbs x 7

    Alternating Dumbbell Curls-
    30lbs x 10
    30lbs x 10
    30lbs x 10

    21 Curls-
    45lbs x 1 set

    Triceps-

    Single Arm Reverse Grip Pushdowns-
    40lbs x 10
    40lbs x 10
    40lbs x 10

    Tricep Pushdowns-
    120lbs x 10
    120lbs x 10
    130lbs x 10

    Overhead Tricep Rope Extensions-
    50lbs x 15
    60lbs x 10
    70lbs x 5


    I burnt the hell outta my biceps and triceps today. After the workout, I couldn't even flex my arm. It was like the whole thing was numb. It was GREAT!!! Overall a pretty good workout.


    Soreness and Tightness next to nothing when just walking around. When stretched out though it still really pulls. Played a little tennis today with the new racquet. Didn't run much down but still stretched it a little. Still felt pretty good overall.

    Nice work Chubrock. Not being able to lift or flex your arms after a session rocks!

    Thank ya JustinF. Thought I'd follow your "curl jockey" ways haha.


    Recovery Day 9



    Food:


    Meal 1- Nitrean, Milk, Oatmeal

    Meal 2- Nutri Grain Bar, Balance Bar, Milk

    Meal 3- Roasted Chicken Breast, Double Meat, Fat Free Chips

    Meal 4- Spicy Chicken Sandwich no mayo, Raisans

    Meal 5- Lean Beef Meatloaf, Lite Mac and Cheese, Squash

    Meal 6- Chicken Sandwiches


    Totals-

    Calories- 2936
    Protein- 207grams
    Carbs-327grams
    Fat- 79grams


    Overall not too bad. My fat was higher than it usually is, but that comes from the Lean Beef and Spicy Chicken Sandwich. Still the totals are looking good.


    No Workout Today


    The only soreness or tightness I feel now is when I really tweak my body the wrong way. I still can't stretch out too much, and I don't want to push it quite yet, as I'm still worried I may tear something open. Played some more tennis today. Everything felt good except for one or two moments, and that only came when I turned wrong. Overall a good day, but a boring one as well.


    Quote of the Day- "Yeeaa, I was wondering if I could get that wakeup call to go to my cell phone. I really don't know where I'll be tommorow."

    Recovery Day 10



    Food:


    Meal 1- Nitrean, Milk, Oatmeal

    Meal 2- Balance Bar, Nutri Grain Bar, Milk

    Meal 3- 2 Chicken Sandwiches, OJ

    Meal 4- 2 Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

    Meal 5- Roasted Chicken Breast, Double Meat, Fat Free Chips

    Meal 6- Raisans, Honey Maid Apple Sticks, Milk


    Totals:

    Calories- 3048
    Protein- 226grams
    Carbs- 377grams
    Fat- 65grams


    Today's diet was probably the best I've had since I started. All my totals were dead on. I think this may be the lowest my fat levels have been since I started this journal. The only reason the fat levels broke 60grams is because I decided I might eat something a little tasty, and ate the AppleSticks. One thing I've been thinking about, is that I was wondering if there could be any downfalls to this lower level of fat? I mean its nothing super low, but still about 30grams lower than the Recommended Daily Value. Oh well, just food for thought.



    Workout- Chest and Shoulders

    Chest:

    Negative Dips-
    BW x 10
    BW x 8

    Dips-
    BW x 10
    BW x 8

    Hammer Strength Iso Wide Grip (combined weight of each side)-
    90lbs x 10
    110lbs x 10
    130lbs x 10
    150lbs x 10
    170lbs x 7

    Hammer Strength Iso Incline (combined weight of each side)-
    90lbs x 10
    110lbs x 4

    I quit this lift, because I just couldn't get the right feel for the piece of equipment. I felt like I was having to start each rep from almost behind my back, and it didn't feel all that good. At this point I went to something different.

    Incline Dumbbell Flyes-
    25lbs each hand x 10
    25lbs each hand x 10

    Shoulders:

    Shrugs (Machine Weight)-
    300lbs (Full Stack) x 10
    Stack + Two 25lb Plates x 10
    Stack + Two 25lb Plates x 10

    Machine Side Laterals-
    60lbs x 10
    70lbs x 10
    80lbs x 10
    90lbs x 10
    100lbs x 10
    110lbs x 10

    Plate Raises-
    45lb Plate x 10
    45lb Plate x 10
    45lb Plate x 10


    Pretty good workout overall. Felt like I did a pretty good job working my selected body parts. I think by next week I'll be able to strap the weightbelt back on for the dips, and do some bench or something.


    Everything felt good today. Still a lot of swelling, and the pain is minimal. Overall a good day.

    Thanks man. Not some of the greatest lifts, but not too bad considering I can't stretch out too much. Everything ends up being done with pretty strict form. Guess that's a good thing though.

    Nice job Chubrock! As for your fat, I'd say its a little low. Why not supplement with some fish oil caps or some other source of EFAs?

    If you have access to a Costco you can get like 500 1 g caps for like $8. You cant beat that with a stick. Good sessions. Keep up the good work.

    Recovery Day 11


    Food:


    Meal 1- Nitrean, Milk, Oatmeal

    Meal 2- Nutri Grain Bar, Balance Bar

    Meal 3- Stir Fry Chicken, Rice

    Meal 4- Roasted Chicken Breast, Double Meat

    Meal 5- Turkey and Ham, Double Meat

    Meal 6- Turkey Sandwich, Raisans, Nutri Grain Bar



    Totals-

    Calories- 2914
    Protein- 220grams
    Carbs- 335grams
    Fat- 70grams


    Overall today's totals were pretty good. My family wanted to eat mexican, so I ate the healthiest stuff I could find. Ate pretty cleanly if you disregard the third meal of the day.


    No Workout


    Today I felt great. Got up and cut the grass, lounged around, and played some tennis this evening. I'm def. getting my motion back, but still at times I can feel it stretch. Had some great DOMS today in my chest and shoulders. I've got a Back, Forearms, and Calf workout scheduled for tommorow. I'm going to see if I can start doing pullups again.

    [U]Info. for 6/11/04


    Recovery Day 12


    Food:


    Meal 1- Oatmeal, Tuna Creations Tuna

    Meal 2- Balance Bar, Nutri Grain Bar

    Meal 3- Spicy Chicken Filet

    Meal 4- Roasted Chicken Breast, Double Meat, Fat Free Chips, Raisans, Nutri Grain Bar

    Meal 5- Milk, Natty PB Sandwich

    Meal 6- Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Nitrean, Milk

    Totals:

    Calories- 3036
    Protein- 211grams
    Carbs- 356grams
    Fat- 80grams


    Fat was a little higher than normal today. Not really concerned though, as it is still a decent level. Bought some Fish Oil Caplets today, so I started taking those. Everything looked good today for the most part. Tommorow is my "relaxed" day.


    Workout- Back and Forearms

    Hammer Strength Iso Lateral Row (weight each side):

    45lbs x 10
    70lbs x 10
    80lbs x 10
    90lbs x 10
    100lbs x 10
    110lbs x 10

    HS Iso Lateral Lat Pulldowns (combined weight);

    90lbs x 10
    110lbs x 10
    130lbs x 7

    Barbell Wrist Curls:

    65lbs x 10
    85lbs x 10
    95lbs x 10


    Didn't get an OK to start pull-ups, so I had to do some other stuff. I still felt like I got a good burn in my back though. Not a bad workout, but not a great one either.



    Everything felt good today. Still the swelling but that doesn't bother me.

    Info. for 6/12/04


    Recovery Day 13


    Food:

    Today was my relaxed diet day. Didn't eat TOO much bad stuff. About the only bad things I ate were the Chicken Supremes from Bojangles, and a Gordita from Taco Bell. Everything else eaten today was extremely clean.


    Totals:

    Didn't add up any totals today. Pretty sure my protein levels and calorie levels were up there around normal, but I know my fat was a little higher than usual.


    No Workout Today

    Felt pretty good today. No pain really. I'm beginning to get used to the stretching . Swelling still evident but that's going to be around for awhile. Overall a good day.

    Went to a SPL Audio Competition today. Dad has been fixing up a Mustang and is going to start showing it in regular car shows. He just ran the Stang' in the SPL for fun and to see what he was hittin'. With one 12in woofer, dad hit 140.2db. He beat out several cars and trucks with several subs. Def. not a bad showing for a car not designed to compete in these competitions.
