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?

    Comments: Gains Galore! I gained somewhere on every exercise I did. Don't know about leg extensions because I haven't kept track in the past. Did those instead of leg presses to mix things up. I ate like crazy today. Over 4,200 calories and 230g of protein. New record weight today. I'm now up to 154lbs. I think I should meet my goal of 160 by Feb. 15th easily.

    Also, I saw a guy in there doing 630lbs on deadlift. He was doing SLDL's with over 450. Insane! He was shorter than me but you could tell he'd been powerlifting for a long time. He was thick as hell. I think he was Russian or eastern european judging by his accent. Impressive to watch and definitely good inspiration.

    Nice squatting, you're gonna own me on everything now after these next 3 weeks.

    I don't think you should be dropping 130lbs from Parallel to ATF. I'd make sure you're going all the way parallel on the regular ones because the drop shouldn't be that much IMO.

    Crippler: The reason for the drop is because my legs are so fried after doing regular squats and I do the ATF squats right after!

    Thanks for the props Cripp, Homeslice, CoCoa.

    Ate like crap for dinner last night. Got there a little late to a Chirstmas party and most of the good food was already gone (no turkey! ). That make Hulk sad.

    I'm doing arms/shoulders today and then off to my family's party. Hopefully better food there.

    My in-laws have redeemed themselves. They have turkey. Worked out in their basement as I don't have access to a gym here. Fortunately, they have a good assortment of dumbells and barbells w/plates (and a bench). Also a pullup bar. This is a good thing. Merry Christmas everyone. Gonna eat big tonight and tomorrow. Already gained another pound. Up to 155 now

    Comments:
    Worked out with my old best buddy and lifting partner from college. I'm visiting him for a few days, so we decided to go lift at his medical schools exercise room. It's small but they have a pretty decent assortment of equipment, including power racks, pulley machine, pullup bars, benches, barbells, dumbells, etc. I introduced him to the deadlift and I think he's going to incorporate them into his routine. He's sore already! I worked him to the bone. He said he had forgotten how tough of a w/o partner I am, which I'll take as a compliment! Mixed up the routine a bit, did DB bench instead of BB and BB incline instead od DB. The one peice of equipment I wanted was a weighted belt, though, which they didn't have. Oh, well. The DL pretty much wore me out, anyway, but I am still steadliy improving on it
