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?

    Starting over from scratch...

    Well I've decided to start a journal since I don't really have anything better to do. I lifted for about a year, then went off to college (uconn) but barely lifted up there because the gym was just really anoying not enough equipment for the amount of people, but when i came home at hte begining of may i started to lift again up until the begining of july. At that time i weighed about 155 pounds, I was benching 165 for my last set and deadlifts were 205 last set, and squat was 185 last set. At the begining of july I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis, spent three weeks in the hospital and lost 25 pounds. I currently weigh 132 pounds and i'm 5'8 and 19 years old. It's amazing how quickly your body will deteriorate, i pretty much watched all the muscle i had gained vanish in the mirror from day to day. Ive been outa the hopsital for about 3-4 weeks now, and couldn't stay away from the gym heh this will be my second week back in the gym. I'm definatley attempting a bulk but its pretty hard considering diet limitations due to ulcerative colitis. I will be doing a 4 day split, Chest/tris, Bis/back, off day, shoulders, legs, off day, off day. back was yesterday and chest was teh day before that so here is what I did...I dont have a spot and last week i did all DB's so this week i used the smith machine cuz i wanted to use a bar dont make fun

    Weight assisted pull ups - 75x10x2
    lat pull downs - 55x10, 65x8, 75x6
    bent over rows - 35x10x3
    seated rows - 60x10, 75x10, 90x8

    preacher curl machine - 2 plates (dunno how much they weigh)x10x2

    Flat bench - 50x12, 60x10, 70x8
    Incline - 40x12, 50x10, 55x8
    Flies - 3x30x10
    to finsih chest i did a few sets of dips on the weight assisted machine (can't even do more than 2 dips anymore of my body weight )

    French curl - 30x10, 35x10
    Pull downs - 40x10, 50x10

    Sorry this is so long ill be surprised if anyone actually gets through it, but i guess my goals since im taking first semester off from school are to gain 20-25 pounds by the end of january...i know the weight on my sets will go up pretty quickly again so id like to be where i left off before i went into the hospital by this time as well if not higher.
