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?

    Summer with home gym

    Hi, I joined wannabebig forums to keep a workout log and to help me track progress. I will be working out at home (just graduated) with a #300 barbell set and 44lb kettlebell. I'm also looking to add a pull up bar soon. Thanks for stopping bye and for the support!


    Current (7/11)

    height: 5'5"
    age:22
    bw: 130lbs
    bf ~ 13
    vertical: 24 "
    Squat 5 rpm:205lbs
    pistols 5rpm: 44lbs
    bench 5rpm: 145lbs
    dl 5rpm: 205
    pullups: 11

    Goal (10/11)

    height: 5'11 (haha I wish)
    bw: 136
    bf ~ 10
    vertical: 32 "
    Squat: 255lbs
    bench: 175lbs
    dl: 275lbs
    pullups:20

    I started training around 4 years ago (yeah sad results) but have been on and off. Hopefully this log will keep me on track this time around. I will focus on deadlifts, oly lifts, pullups, single leg movements, dips, and other stuff that I can do at home.

    Should we get someone to pull you on a rack to help you reach that 5' 10" goal. Welcome to the journals and I'm sure you'll find lots of support to help you reach the other goals at least.

    p.s. the rack doesn't work...I can't seem to get to 5' 10" either.

    Damn right you will be! We don't mess around down here. Liquor and Steel, that's what we're all about -Casey

    ROFL, oh man - I usually wait until I'm on the freeway to do that. What an idiot! -teufy doing what he does best.

    You aren't strong enough or pretty enough to train in the evenings with us...better stick to noon workouts with the rest of the geriatrics. - pup

    Yeah. I'm a dork. - Teufy
