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?

    New Start, New Goals, Total Dedication

    well some of u might of seen my last journal, it was goin well lost 4-5lbs, probably put a few on since then as i took 2 week break eating almost anything, and only real exercise was football training. So anyway this is how my lifes gonna change just to get to where i wanna be for January, when i was aiming to start a slow bulk to add more muscle, iff im cut enough, maybe ill need to postpone it by a month or so, but iff i stick to my schedule i should be ok.

    So... The Goals

    im gonna be mean on myself and say im 23%bf i think it might be a tad lower, but probably not much.

    Current Stats

    Height: 6'0
    Weight: 217lbs
    Forearms: 12"
    Biceps: 16"
    Chest: 43"
    Waist: 41"
    Neck: 16"
    Calfs: 15"
    Thighs: 26"

    Goals For January 1st

    Height: 6'0
    Weight: 190-200lbs
    BF: 15%

    The Rest im not sure about as they are measurements, so i guess there all gonna go down, apart from my forarms and my thighs where i dont think there is much fat to lose. and maybe an inch of my biceps.

    The Plan

    1. Solid Diet
    2. 1 Cheat Day On Saturdays, When Ill Eat Cleanly Just More.
    3. Mod Beer, Drinking On 16th Sept, and then 23rd November.
    4. Workout 5 times a week(Split to come)
    5. Run at least 90 minutes a day, 30 mins morn, 30mins afternoon, 30mins night
    6. Row at least 20 minutes a day
    7. Give 100% effort at football training
    8. Be Sexy
    9. Sleep At Least 7-8 hours a night.

    The Gym Split

    Monday: Chest/Legs/Tri's/Abs
    Tuesday: Back/Shoulders/Biceps
    Wednesday: Chest/Abs
    Thursday: Shoulders
    Friday: Biceps
    Saturday: Football Game
    Sunday: Off

    just gonna warm up before i run in the mornings.
    do some situps, pressups stuff like that, then jog for atleast 20mins and do some sprints iff i can make it

    The Diet

    gonna stick to 1 diet, and eat what i can, be easier when i got more money

    Breakfast: Eggs/Protein Shake
    Dinner: Vyomax Bar/Meat/Cheese
    Tea: Chicken Or Fish
    Late Night: Protein Shake

    Cals: 1500-1800
    Prot: 200g
    Carbs: 40-50g
    Fat: 25-30g

    The Cardio

    1. 30 min before breakfast
    2. 30 min before dinner
    3. 30 min late night
    4. 20 min rowing(Gym)
    5. 15 min Stair Climber(Gym)

    i gotta say im feeling good abotu this now, just a matter of keeping my head and getting dedicated again, this time its gotta be for real.

    any of u got any comments, just put em in, ill listen and each week, probably monday i will add my weight, im even gonna get my mum to buy me some scales :-o

    anyway dont think ive missed anything

    Laterz

    4th October 2004

    Started My New Little Routine Today, However i didnt manage the 30 mins run i promised 3 times a day, i missed the morning run due to oversleeping, and got out at 1 to run round the beach, i timed myself and it came out as 15:26 secs, not bad...

    seeing as tho i dont normally run longer than 7 mins or so, the wind was so hard to run against too it was unbelievable, and my calfs were burning like fcuk

    anyway, its chest day tonight at the gym, + a little run before and after, will post later

    ciao.

    Everything looks pretty good in here buddy. Good luck with everything. I think I posted this quote in somebody's journal once before, but remember "A day without testing yourself, is a wasted day."

    Having a day off, i tell thee i have earned it, ive ran so much and put so much effort into football training that i can hardly move :P, feeling strong and fit and i even managed to keep up with 2 of the fastest guys in my team, on sprints.

    found out we are training 2-3 times a week now, so its all gonna help
