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?

    Solid Day.

    I woke up early and brought my dog to the vet, and did some groceries with my bro. Finally, got stacked up on the meats, dairy, and fruits!

    Good reps today in my sets, unlike the past few workouts. I can now use 40's as "heavy sets" if I do these sets in the beginning of my workout. Hey, its improvement!

    I read the thread I posted about this routine after I did it, and apparently it's too many biceps. I'll try to cut back on that and higher up on the back sets for next time.

    I ****ed up the order on my sheet; this is not the order. My pattern was one exercise that focuses on biceps (EXERCISE, including all sets in it), then one that focuses on back. Ofcourse, doing this until I was done. The pullups were done at the end. I'm going to post a full routine, to get a good critique and edit it accordingly.

    I'm not posting diet anymore; it takes me way to long to jot it all down and find the calories and protein (online or in house). I am however still making sure I eat as much as I did before (and more), just now cleanly. Had lots of meat today, orange juice, some fruits, and yogurt. That's "cleaner" I suppose.

    Again, wrestling training wasn't really "cardio". Lots of mat moves, top rope moves, and others today. Not much chain wrestling and running the ropes (the 2 things that freakin kill your energy in 1 minute).

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    REST DAY

    Went to this trade show with my uncle, so didn't hit the gym today. Also, my back was hurting from yesterday's training so I didn't go to wrestle today.

    I was about to leave to the gym, when I decided to take look on Ticketmaster for tickets to Summerslam (already looked atleast 20 times). And you will never guess... 4 tickets, Level 100, Row 3!!! Those lil itty biddy ****ers released tickets 1 day before the event! Yea, so a happy little Altersh0ck got the tickets ordered, and picked them up. By the time I was done this, I had to go to wrestling training. So in other words.... no workout today.

    Why call, apologize to me, and make an uncomfortable situation if you know that you're never going to stop?

    It would be easier to say something if you actually had interests and ambitions...

    Comments:
    Eh, lighter day than usual.

    Some sets were a little iffy, as you can see. I did feel todays workout quite well though. The pad for doing squats is absolutely useless; it's padded for about 1 inch and then it's just vinyl. Oh well, I'll have to save learning and doing squats for..... now that I think about it, I won't be able to squat for another few years.

    Tommorow is wrestling, pumped for it.

    RAW tonight was very good, lots of good and funny promos, and decent matches at the LEAST.

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    Good workout.

    I would, however, probably move your lat pulldowns to your back/biceps day. Doesn't really fit with your shoulder schedule, but that's just me.

    I stumbled on the last bit of RAW and was pretty decent. Ending kind of trailed off at the end though...

    Keep it up.

    You mean where they turned on "Randy Orton"? Those guys have been a powerful stable team for over a year now... so it actually was very shocking and a terrific finish :P

    Ken leg pressed 520 twice by the way.

    Decent day.

    Back got stronger by a rep or two.

    My biceps were almost done after I finished all the rows and other back work. I do believe though that my bicep strength has aswell improved since I returned to posting in my journal.

    Possibly going to Wonderland tommorow, and Smackdown is on tommorow aswell. Chest/Tricep/Abs tommorow.
