The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Week 4

    Day 4 [ Saturday ] Squat Day – Did this on Sunday, Sept. 17/06

    Warm up – Front Squat 90 lbs. x 10

    Front Squat – 125 lbs. 3rd set at 140 lbs.
    Set 1 x 8 reps –
    Set 2 x 8 reps –
    Set 3 x 8 reps – (140 lbs.) Pretty hard…sweating a lot, heart pumping.

    Notes: Keep the same for next week.

    Back Squat (Below Parallel)– 5 x 3 (work up to 5 x 5)

    5x3 all sets at 200 lbs. I wonder how much easier these would feel if my lower back problems went back to normal.

    Notes: Lower back still hurting; hurts the most when I unrack. Seems like the more I arch it the more it amplifies the discomfortness. Oh man it feels like I could REALLY ROCK THE SQUATS if these BACK PAINS WENT AWAY!!!!!!!!

    Romanian Deadlift – 200 lbs.

    Set 1 x 6 reps –
    Set 2 x 6 reps –
    Set 3 x 6 reps –

    Notes: Freaking lower back is still hurting. Perhaps I could of did 4 sets or 3 x 8 but everytime I think about how that... (ermmm I've said it many times already).... LOWER BACK is going to hurt makes me want to back off.

    Week 5

    Deadlift today, but since my lwoer back just hurts even when only doing the first warm up sets of deadlift; 140 lbs. I just stopped.

    Instead I did:

    SHOULDERS:

    5 x 3 Military press - 120 lbs.

    NOTES: I think my left wrist got messed up. 2 months ago I started learning guitar; perhaps it's the lousy attempt at forming "Barre chords".

    Lateral Raise - 25 lbs. dumbells for 1 set of 8

    NOTES: A bit too heavy I swinged the dumbell.

    Front Raise - 20 lbs. dumbell for 1 set of 10

    NOTES: Feeling a bit too heavy.

    BACK:

    Barbell Good mornings -

    130 lbs. x 5

    150 lbs. x 1.... naaaahhhh I'm going to stop.

    Massage therapist appointment on Friday.

    Well I haven't worked out for 2 weeks.

    Anyways about 10 days have passed since I went for my massage. My lower back doesn't hurt anymore when I bend over like romanian deadlifts or good mornings.

    I will have to try and pull Sumo-style deads instead of conventional this time aswell.
