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?

    Useful Spreadsheet I made...

    I've been tracking my progress using a spreadsheet and I think others could use it too.

    It's an Excel format spreadsheet, without any VB since most people have disabled macro's.

    It has the following/calculates the following:

    Split Sched.
    Body composition day-by-day log with Fat/Muscle gained/lost. (based on Weight and BF%)
    Body composition calculation sheet. (based on age, weight, height in inches, BF%) It calculates Lean Body Mass, BMI, BMR for Male/Female at 3 diffrent activity levels (low,moderate,heavy). It also has a 1 rep Max calculator (given Weight and Reps) and a table of weight based off of your LBM with diffrent amounts of body fat in 1% incriments.
    Metric-Imperial conversion sheet.

    All formulas used are found on google in known places.

    Feel free to comment on whether or not its useful, any features you'd like to see, modify it as much as you want etc.

    Download here.

    EDIT: Tell me if the link works...

    Low = Desk Job all day, no working out
    Moderate = Kinda active during the day, 1hour workout sometime during the day.
    Heavy = A job that requires heavy all-day physical labor. Construction, trench digging, carrying molten iron lol.

    Well post a pic I'm pretty good at estimating. If not get one of these:

    They seem to be pretty accurate. If not get a caliper.

    I'm pretty skeptical of a scale that tells me how fat I am. I've heard if you drink a glass of water then check your bf it messes it up.
    Also the website says the weight is accurate withing 1% but doesn't mention anything about bf....I think it is based on BMI (shudders).

    Ok, I know it's been a while since this thread was touched but I'd like to get my hands on this spreadsheet if somebody's got it. The link no longer works.
