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?

    Those were bentover barbell rows.

    Not much of a step... but yeah, I stopped to regrip once.


    Feb 17/05

    Rower: 500m in 1:58
    - Is this good? I was so gassed by the 400m mark. I can't go faster without the stupid thing moving and falling off the seat.

    Crossfit-like Workout
    10 minutes: 1 round =
    . 30 squats
    . 25 situps
    . 15 pushups

    5 rounds + 14 squats

    - This was freakin tough! I'll find an actual xfit workout to perform for next time. Any comments on this?

    Calf Raise
    12 x 2p
    10 x 2p+25
    8 x 3p

    Single Leg Leg Curls
    12:12 x 50
    12:12 x 50

    - This is a PR, but who really cares.


    Overall:
    Yer. Just random crap basically.

    Should of done Cindy instead, no need for situps. Crossfit looks like its thrown together randomly each day, but go through the website and follow the split with a detailed eye. Fun stuff.

    warmup: Rower - 900m in 5:00

    Crossfit Workout
    50 pullups
    50 situps
    50 pushups
    50 squats

    13:55

    - The pullups took well over half of the time here. I have no clue how to kip, lol. The reps weren't clean but they weren't kipping either. I pushed down on the neg to get some momentum for coming back up, but didn't have any swing or much hip involvement into it. It went 16-10-8-8-8 for reps, in about 8-9 mins. I think I can do sub 12 on this if I organize myself better, as I was playing around with grips and attemps at kipping for the pullups and had to move across the gym to the mats for the other stuff.

    Calf Raise
    12 x 2p
    10 x 3p
    6 x 3p+25


    Overall:
    There it is. CF+Calves/Abs is the Monday workout. Tommorow is upper 5x5/3x8, then CF on Wed, Thur is lower 5x5/3x8, then CF+Arms/Abs on Fri.

    Pretty good workout Mitchy. Why no flat bench though? Figured you'd be one to flat bench over db bench.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Try pulling harder instead of faster. If it's anything like all the machines I've ever used, it's torque-sensitive as well as speed-sensitive, and I usually do around 800 metres in 3 minutes for a warmup. I don't think it's bolted down, either.

    Nice workouts. Your DB presses are looking pretty good.

    Hmm, I'll give it a try.

    Change of plans...

    I hate to stop something so damn early, but good God do I love bodybuilding too much to cut it down to 2x a week. So, the new schedule is:

    Mon - Lower
    Tue - Upper
    Wed - Crossfit
    Thur - Lower
    Fri - Upper
    Sat or Sun - Crossfit

    Word. I won't be doing the WOD today, I have no clue how to clean and jerk and my delts are pooped from yesterday. I'll look up something, preferably upper oriented.

    I'll give Jackie a try today.

    Wait, my mom found out I've skipped a ****load of classes. Likely won't make it to the gym

    Looks like a good plan, the crossfit will ensure that your gains are pretty much all lean mass.

    Do this, then:
    "Easy" Mary
    Complete as many rounds in 20 minutes as you can of:
    5 Handstand Push-ups
    10 Pull-ups
    25 Squats

    The journal / I live here.

    If I were to start from scratch as a young 13 year old again, I would do every press, squat, and perhaps deadlifts, for my entire career with chains. -- Dan John

    He knows he wont succeed even if he goes, and therefore has given up.

    The same thing will eventually happen with bodybuilding.
