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?

    Oh boy, I'm catching up to you on those lat pulldowns! I hope that when you said "felt like crap", you mean you could have easily doubled that.

    Good session.

    yup, awesome back work....glad to see you not holding back on the back

    yeah, I met a trainer up north. he trianed me for 5 months and I loved it. trouble is a got a bad left knee, and even wrapped up tight I am not healthy enough for the abuse.

    I loved the training though, puked my first and second day in the ring.

    I had to put the ring together, then take it apart at the end....GOD I was so tired that I didnt want to take the ring apart, but he was old school...he said if I dont take the ring down then I dont come back tomorrow to put it back up and train again.....what a tough sumbithc

    he would pick like three moves and we would just do that over and over again for 2-3 hours.....wanna see me hyperventilate?

    I miss it though, I hope if I have kids he dont get my bad knee its genetic and my dad has the same thing.

    now I bodybuild

    Josh: Thanks!

    Jeff: Yeah, it's really weird because it seems like I'm going up 5lb DBs every 2 sessions... not that I'm complaining or anything .

    BIG C: Thanks for the comment!

    Brian: Lol. I'm not chris mason, so no I could not double that :P. They felt like crap, as in light weight, bah form, and just all around sucky. I felt my forearms blow out before my lats did.

    Alke: Well, actually I am. I am not deading until my all around weightlifting form becomes better, because I don't want to injure my back. I couldn't dead at my gym anyways though, no olympic bar.

    Yea, the first days are pretty brutal. All the bumping and cardio, it's just not something ones used to. That ring takes so long to put together/apart lol. Ive helped with that at the shows; it's a pain in the ass but I am still thankful that they showed me how its constructed.

    As for 21s, nah I don't think I am going to incorporate them. I also try to lean away from BB curls, since my bicep strength is uneven.

    Thanks for all the comments bro!

    Comments:
    Lighter day than usual.

    Spotting myself up on the DB presses was pretty hard, it took me 10 seconds just to get everything up, straight, and unwobbly . I'm sure if I had a spotter I could have PRd them.

    Up to the 40s for the flies. I thought maybe I was losing my form because I was only doing 8x35s last session... but looking in the mirror everything was fine.

    CGBP on the smith isn't working for me; it feels weird and puts pressure on my wrists. I think it's the fact that you don't control the bar that's doing this.

    Comments and critique welcome and appreciated!

    Have you looked at the www.ironmind.com info for your grip?
    Or thought of doing some rock climbing for a bit?

    Gotta get that choke slam tight!

    So I bought weightgainer today . 3 shakes a day (powder, milk, olive oil) = 1874 cals. I'm so happy!

    Chun: I hope so! You better hit the iron man. The day had less volume, but I'm still really feeling it today. I was pushing myself pretty hard.

    Piz: I can finally grip the proper weight to shrug now... dunno lol. That's a cool site though, thanks for the post!

    ryuage: Yeah, it matters what we do. I'm not doing stuff that whole time either... theres only so many (usually 2 or 3) people who can be in the ring at once. Thanks for the post!

    He meant mixing them all together. I like to do that with my shakes as well. It helps get more calories as well as some much needed EFAs.

    Chun/Josh: I bought Mammoth 2500 Weight Gainer (powder), and I put it in a shake with milk, olive oil, and a banana (soon).

    Alke: Yeah man, 2 shakes alone are about 1200 cals .

    Again, a lighter day. The gym was closing at 4:00, and I arrived at about 3:15. I had to stop whilse doing shoulders, thus explaining the low sets.

    Feeling those squats! I'm sure I could have done 10x200, but I thought I was going to do one more set and therefore didnt try to push myself to far. =/

    I'm liking the HS for calves, I'm gonna stick with these. Originally I hurt my knees on it a bit (3 months ago), but no problems this time.

    Arph, yet another 'lighter day'. I gotta get my sched in order, because today I again had only 45 mins in the gym.

    Everything felt fine, not much to say except that I am slowly starting to think my bi's are just weak, as opposed to fatigue. Gonna do more isolation. I'm wanting to do that with BB Curls, but my bicep strength isn't equal so that makes it difficult. F'n dumbells better work on that fast!

    Gonna cut the Lever Preachers out all together; they kinda suck.

    Not a bad day, but personally ez BB curls against a wall and 21's KILL my bi's there like the best excercies ever. I think my Bi's have doubled in size from just that 1 workout, im serious those excercises really work for me, try them out and see if it works well for you.
