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?

    Very good day!

    This new routine is working great! I'd like to thank all those who helped, especially Jeff. You guys are teh shiz 1n d4 cuzt0m1z1n 0f t3h r00t33n~13/!!

    I wasn't sure what I could do with the DB Rows, so the reps are high. With the 40's was easy. the 10 reps with the 45's is legit and solid. I will be starting with 50's next time however.

    My biceps were really dead before I started there isolation. I'm not sure if it's that, or if I just stink at BB curls... but I was doing much less than usual. Same with the concentration, but that was definately because my bi's were done for.

    Checked my weight today again, 151! I feel good now that I have solidly beat my July goal, even if it is a little late.

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    If you really feel the bi's are too tired an alternative would be to work tri's with back and bi's with chest. The triceps are relatively fresh after back so you can hit hard and the same goes for the biceps on chest day.

    Rook: The problem is if I did Back on Monday, and then Bicep on Tuesday, I would have already worked bicep on monday while doing back, AND then doing bicep again on tuesday. You know what I mean? Either way, it's not a big problem. As long as I am working them well, which I am with this routine.

    Chun: I've been busy with wrestling, out of towners, and some other temporary stuff... so at the current moment, I just go whenever I have a moment to. Whether this is everyday, every 2 days, or some other pattern, it's what I have to live with. But yea, my schedule shoud clean up after this weekend, and definately when school starts.

    lol, just let me know when I offer too many suggestions, however here's one more. I've often do legs between two upper body days. This allows the upper body to recoop some before you hit it again. Anyway, just a thought as you refine this routine of yours.

    Below-par day.

    I forgot to print out and bring my new routine, so I had to try to remember it there. I got it almost right, except totally forgot about dips =/.

    Good bench sets, 8x150 is a new PR I think (I was doing 4x155 a few weeks ago, never tried 150).

    I felt something =/ish in my bicep on the second set of standing flies. My form has never been good on these, and I think that was the problem. I'm gonna have to find a replacement for them.

    I really felt those skulls, good sets.

    Checked my weight today again, 150. Last time, I thought it was 151, but it actually was 150.1. Stupid me lol, anyways I was the same weight today.

    Today was an abs day, but during the first set of crunches I started to sweat like crazy. I decided to just get up, leave, and do it tommorow... when I noticed the mat area hotter than the rest of the gym. Why? I do not know. But I'm guessing that's why I was sweating. Abs will be done tommorow.

    So with the miss of 2 fly sets, and the miss of dips as an exercise, today wasn't a great day at the gym. Tommorow my pass expires =/. I might sign up for one more month, since I don't think my school gym will be open everday until mid/end september.

    Solid day.

    It seems like everyweek my legs get stronger! If I'm not mistaken, just last week I was leg pressing 320x6, but today I did 325x10. I've gotta start with higher weight next time, but I still felt the sets nonetheless.

    I decided to use front (regular) grip on the shoulder presses. Before I was using sidegrip. I've gotta say, regular grip is alot harder. I feel it more though.

    Don't feel like explaining this each workout... TVO's are done slow, bla blah blah close sets blah blah.

    Some kid wouldn't leave me alone. ****er kept following me, asking what school I go to, what courses I am taking, how old I am, and then starts telling me about himself. Goes on about some Hockey game he played, but stopped since it was obvious I had no interest in listening. Yea, so the scrub does 1 set of every muscle group, and then leaves. Gotta love em

    Alke: Thanks for replying. And yep, slow bulk. Originally I was just going for a bulk, but I really can't seem to get something like 4000 cals and 220 g protein in me (time restraints; parents cant do groceries 3 times a week). Right now I am packing in 3000-3300 cals a day, and around 140g protein.

    Hey Mitch, nice work on the leg day. Getting increases is great and 4pps will be yours in no time. Also nice strength on the extensions. Keep it up and make sure you're adding enough calories to be gaining weight.

    Brian: Thanks for the reply.

    Jeff: I can probably do 4pps at the moment, 2 or 3 reps. But yea man, I am hoping to be repping with 5pps by my birthday in January. We'll see how that goes. Thanks for the reply!

    This is what I suggest, replace the shoulder press machine, with dumbells (works stabalizers aswell) Change Tvo's to Lateral Raises, imo they work better (for me). Anywayz, good day overall keep it up

    Nito: I would gladly do it with DBs, but I have no spotter. I will be using DB's at school. I find TVOs to be better than Lateral Raises. TVO's work more than one part of your delt, as lat raises obviously don't. Thanks for the advice though man

    debussy: It's basically DB raises, where you make the letters T, then V, then O. As for squats, I don't do them. I am planning on starting deads soon.

    Very good day.

    Not much to say really. All sets were good.

    I nearly dropped the 65s on my last set of shrugs; I MIGHT have been able to do an 8th rep. Damn grip

    Bi's were definately dead before I started their isolation. I STILL believe that the bar there is harder, or more than 15 pounds. It just doesn't make much sense lol.

    That damn annoying kid from yesterday was there today, again asking me stupid question. I told him to shutup while I was doing pullups, but he didn't listen. I then told him he needs a freakin routine, and 10 minutes later he comes out with the hot trainer. Looks like he is useful after all :P.

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    Excellent work on the dumbell rows and shrugs. Those rows are great. You'll have to work the grip some but it will come along in due time.

    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

    Grip is always a concern, but you'll be better off progressing in line with your grip rather than using straps for now. Once you get into some huge weights, straps can be useful, but definitely work on that grip!
