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?

    There is a slight modification on my diet;

    Since this week It will be my very first after 5.5 months without lifting, I will begin with a high protein, high carb, mod fat diet. I don't want to make any quick and harsh changes on my diet right away. *I will be posting my daily intake.

    What a shame today's workout was.

    I started doing HST finding my max for 15 reps.. Well I was not ready for it at all. I only squatted 145 x 15. DB bench only 45lb and could not even do one full dip. It was sad. Well, not even half way to my routine I begun to feel bad.
    I felt like puking and felt at any given time I would pass out. This has happened to onces about a year and half ago on leg day. But this time was It was 5x worse. I mean, it was so bad, that I could careless if it was the end of the world for that matter.

    Got home on and just went to bed for about an hour and it finally passed. I was not able to finish my workout and now I will be going to work. Hopefully I will be able to finish my workout after I return from work tonight.


    My lifts are as low as when I first started lifting. SAD...and i am pissed at the same time.

    Beef : 350 : ?? : 25g : 0

    I lost track after breakfast. Due to work. However, everything was very clean and similar to yesterday.


    I was SORE all over this morning. I don't know how i got out of bed to go to work. Then I work 8 hours standing up, not fun at all.


    - Well next week i am leaving to VA. BEACH for a week. Onces I return I have to move, which means no lifting until I get a job and settle down w/ school and get enough money.

    Today I did not squat because I wanted to see what was the cause for my sickness on monday. So far it all links back to the squat. Have no fear, I will squat on Friday but I will leave it for my last excersise.

    I did not feel weak or light headed at the gym today. I noticed that I am quickly re-gaining my strenght. So next week is my SD for HST which is just in time for my trip to VA. Beach.

    DAY 5

    Everything went well.

    Diet is pretty much the same and lifts are getting up. I did not do legs again today. Hopefully will be able to go Saturday and jsut do legs. Tomorrow I will be leaving to VA BEACH late in the evening to arrive Sunday, for one week. Then I am off to a new place and hopefully can find a job to pay for a new gym membership.

    Day 12

    I had a great time over in va beach. Too bad I had to come back although the beach was cold and dirty, I had fun. My diet was very bad, and did not lift. The weight room on the hotel was pathetic to say the least. I did get a nice tan and did not get bured at all.

    This weekend I am moving to the new town so I won't lift till I find a job to pay for a new gym membership. I JUST HOPE there is a good paying job that I can find. Luck has not been on my side finding that good job. I am not askin for much, just somethign better then were I am at now.

    Hey man,

    Glad to have you back, its been a while. Glad to hear your getting back into things

    You gotta get a job sorted bro and get lifting! im lucky that i only pay £30 ($45) for a year, i also have my home gym which is pretty cool.

    Is there a job center in the USA? we have them over in the UK but some of the jobs dont pay well. Im lucky when i found my job on the railway, but before that i was in a Reebok factory, you gotta do what you gotta do!!!

    good luck mate

    Man its been awhile AGAIN. This injury has had major stopped my dedication . I have not lifted in over one year, the ways I used to lift. I joined the gym about 4 months ago but been busy with work and school. After I get out of work I just go home and sit all day long. I lost most off the gains I had made. But It's time to get back hardcore. I have been giving myself excuses why I should stay home such as ' ill go tomorrow ' thats just B.S . Its time to hit it again!!!
