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?

    RycherX's Journal beginning 1/18/2001

    I'm starting a journal here. I am 171 lbs 5 ft 10 1/2 inch @ about 10% body fat. Goal: 175 lbs 5% body fat.

    Currently taking about 2400 calories
    10 g of glutamine/day
    3 caps of Methoxy power.

    I just began seeing a personal trainer for the next 2 months.

    Day 1.


    3 warm up sets of 95 lbs 10 reps
    1 set of 115 lbs 10 reps
    2 sets of 135 lbs 12 reps
    1 set of 115 lbs to failure
    1 set of 95 lbs to failure

    dumbell fly

    2 sets 25 lbs 12 reps
    1 set 20 lbs burnout.

    incline dumbells

    3 sets 25 lbs 10 reps

    4 sets of tricep pull downs
    reps of 12

    Funny how strong I look and lean I look and only lifting so little weights. Maybe it is the intense workout and only having 45 sec rest each. It seems like I'm growing fine with light weights.

    How long have you been lifting?

    Oh and good for you creating a journal here. I find it helps out.

    Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey:

    I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

    Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a beautiful rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk.

    I've been working out for about 1 year.
    I was 145 lbs. Now I'm almost 175 or so.
    I've made huge gains 7 months into it but have leveled off.
    My intensity has dropped. I just got myself a personal trainer for the next two months to push my training to the next level.

    I'm pretty happy where I am at physically now.
    I now look really good in clothes and in swimming trunks.

    I can be a little more vascular and lean.

    I'll post a pic sometime.

    Training Day #2

    Oh boy was it a hellish leg day.
    I haven't touched legs in about 3 weeks or so.
    I only had about 45 sec. rest in between sets.

    Leg press (10 rep each)
    -3 warm up sets
    2 sets of 90lbs
    1 set of 180 lbs

    -3 killer sets
    1 set @ 270 lbs
    2 sets @ 360 lbs

    Squat Rack (10 rep each)
    - 2 set at 135 lbs
    - 1 set at 155 lbs
    - 1 set at 175 lbs

    Leg extensions (10 reps each)
    - 3 sets of 90 lbs

    Leg curls ( 10 reps each)
    - 3 sets of 90 lbs

    3 sets of 30 yd lunges

    I couldn't sleep that night because my legs were so so tired.
    I loaded up on 15 g of glutamine that night and a caplet of Methoxy.
