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?

    Yeah I like to shake it and dance before working out too.
    People look at me funny in the gym though, I don't get it.

    l1ke u r such a s1lly g00se!!./`!11!!!

    You should see the look on some poeples faces when I do my plyo's, there so confused you'd think I was an oldman with a hard on or something .

    I was just looking back at less than 2 months ago, where I was doing 8x200. Now I'm at 6x235 with better ROM, it's nice to sometimes look back like this and enjoy the progress .

    CanadianHomer:
    Thanks, and let's hope man. I have a feeling tha using it is going to be a hasstle, I can imagine all the scrubs doing BB Curls and what not in them. I think it would be great if they made a rule where you could only dead, squat, press, lunge, and row in it .

    lilmase:
    Welcome, and LOL, I wish buddy. I did 1 lap, and 13 laps = 1 mile. So 1/13th of a mile, . It's probably about 70-80 lunges or so.

    Nice go at the squat max man. I'm sure you'll get it next time. What was your reasoning for squattin on a Smith Machine instead of in a Power Rack.

    THEY GOT THE POWERRACK!

    Chubrock:
    Hehe, next time I'll be squatting with 25s to get my form down . Reasoning, read above.

    Pizdoff:
    Muahahhaah, you are wrong. .

    Jeff:
    ROFL, I'm not sure what that 'lol ' is trying to insinuate but I'm pretty scared now . Thanks for the kind words man, let's hope I get 1x300 by the end of the school year in the POWER RACK.

    Thursday December 16, 2004
    Chest/Tricep/Abs

    Workout:
    repsXweight
    • BB Bench Press
      10xbar
      10x135
      5x165
      5x165
      4x165
      6x155
      4x165

      This was done in the new power rack at the gym. I went down 2 reps, which makes me a little iffy. Not sure if it was a bad day, the new enviroment, or maybe the weight's a bit heavier there. We'll see next chest session!

    • Flies
      10x40s
      7x45s (+2R)
      7x45s

      Sweet! These are 2 reps PRd from FRESH flies! I was usually doing 6-8x40s after bench, so +10W was quite a happy moment.

    • Dips
      10xBW
      7xBW+10
      6xBW+10
      4xBW+10

      Last few sessions I have had a few hour break between bench/flies and dips, not anymore though. I'm guessing that's the reason for the rep loss, but again we'll see next session.

    • Pushdowns
      8x75 (+2R)
      33x45

      New PR, and did a 33 rep drop set with 45. Was pretty dumb, didn't really feel it well at all.

    • Crunches/Leg Raises SUPERSET
      .


    ------------------------------------
    (+R) indicates increased reps.
    (+W) indicates increased weights.
    Red and bold indicates PR.
    Light gray on set indicates warmup set.
    Light gray on exercise indicates it's still not done
    ------------------------------------


    Cardio/Activities:
    None

    Other:
    None

    Comments:
    Next session is mentally being hyped in my mind.

    Finally set my diet to 5000. Hit over 5100 today with 200g fat LOL. I'm breaking my ass trying to get the protein up, I'll see what I can do next time at the grocery store. Hit up my fitday for more info (sig).

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    What's with the high chest volume and low tri work?

    Anyways, nice work on the pressing. Yes, I didn't gain nor lose anything on the powerack there. Must be the new bar or something. Felt a little off for me too.

    Zearoth:
    9 sets chest, 6 sets tris. What's wrong? I know you consider dips as chest but it's more tricep man, especially if you stay very upright.

    Thanks, and it felt just heavier as opposed to off. I dunno, next session I'm going to listen to some Rammstein before I go and set myself up well mentally, because maybe that was the problem (for both of us). It could be that when Belo, Vultaggio, and Levi are watching I try to push myself much harder, atleast thats what mr. baseball told me.

    hey congrats on the 5000 calorie diet... sounds intense. what kind of food are you eating ot get so many calories? anyway, i wouldnt bother with so many sets of chest... if you want to get your bench up, work on your triceps and back more. i only do 3 sets of heavy bench per week and my bench is already up to 255.

    debussy:
    Yesterday it was killer but I'm already at 3k today with over 6 hours left till sleepy time, .

    And yes, I have been really trying to get my shoulder and tri strength up ever since reading multiple threads and articles on how that is many people's biggest weakpoint, bench wise. I'll consider lowing the volume aswell, but do you train chest once or twice a week? Thanks for the reply!

    CanadianHomer:
    2 shakes, each 950 calories . Peanuts help, though I try my hardest to get to 5k without them since my fat gets REALLY high. Thank's, I had 11 hours of sleep last night and my chest is still feeling pretty crazy.

    CoCoa:
    Yes, almost. I would have been happier with 1x7 even if the rest were @ 5 or 4, but it was ok I guess.

    ryu:
    Uh huh, that's the plan for next time. I don't really know what I'm fussing about, even if determination wasn't the problem 2 reps isn't a big deal. I guess I'm just picky, .

    lilmase:
    I don't even think a mile is possible lol. Hmmm, that's my new long-term goal. Lunge for a mile . Thanks for the reply.

    Chubrock:
    Yes, it is heh. Funny thing is I think I could do even more, but the shakes I have are high in sugar so I don't want to go even more overboard. Maybe if the next weightgainer I get has a better source of carbs I'll try 5500.

    Today is deads, maybe I'll even out with you on that in a few sessions... though I doubt it.

    Which shakes do you use???

    The only one that's possible to create a 950 call shake, that comes to mind, is N-Large-2.
