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?

    Are we on the same wavelength or what? - I'm switching things around now too. Legs and back are now gonna be done apart from each other, it's not being fair anymore to keep them on the same days for now imo.

    That chest/back/shoulder and legs/arm split you outlined is what Mr. O - Dorian Yates did earlier on, it should work well for you if you give it a go. You could also try upper body and lower body training too. There are so many choices, so many directions to take, lol.

    cheers for the input coke. haha we must be related somehow. Maybe ur a long lost brother? lol.

    I was not aware that Mr yates used this kind of split. I'll give it a go and see what happens.

    Today I did Back/Leg/Chest (hardly any chest work)
    I think I'll stick to Chest/back/shoulder and then legs/arms. Anyways a solid workout and im very pleased!


    BLC (Back, Legs, Chest)


    Barbell Squat Below paralell

    Bar x 8
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    250 x 2 (PR) could have got 3.
    270 x 2 (PR!)
    300 x F (damnit bailed. But still extatic about the 270 squat! A double too!)

    T-Bar Row (using lever system thing) Alot harder in my opinion

    90 x 8
    180 x 5
    225 x 5
    270 x 2 (felt way heavier than the other tbar row style) I might jsut stick to the other tbar barbell rowing.

    Deadlifts

    135 x 8
    225 x 5
    315 x 5
    360 x 1 (mistake. Was meant to be 335. Oh well.)
    315 x 5
    360 x 1

    Loving being able to deadlift with more weight!

    Seated Row *whole stack again*

    170 x 5
    170 x 5
    170 x 5
    170 x 5

    Leg Press w00t for heavy weight! lol

    Deep Presses
    380 x 5
    500 x 5
    605 x 1

    Low ROM Presses (Wanted to know what heavier weight felt like.
    605 x 10
    690 x 5
    690 x 5
    780 x 5 (This was heavy! lol. I wreckon I could do 1,000lbs with like a 1 inch rom.
    780 x F (Tried a Full Rom Rep) lol. Not happening anytime soon!

    BB Bench

    135 x 5
    180 x 5
    225 x 1 (assisted)

    Didnt do any more. Ive gotta draw up a plan for chest work now. No more pissing around.

    Lat Pulldown

    55 x 10
    170 x 5
    170 x 5
    170 x 5

    Finished. Im happy. Thrilled about the 270 x 2 squat. Really surprised myself! And after feeling how heavy nearly 800lbs was on leg press, I cant imgaine anyone squatting that much. It truley is an insane amoount of weight! lol.

    Big 3 total is now at 900lbs exactly!

    One PR after the other... Way to give it hell for the last few workouts Mike. I like the idea to spice things up and workout a new split.

    Cheers pal,

    Well I just make it up as I go along really,

    Just try and hit all muscle groups every week.

    Just wanted to do lots of volume for a couple months before I switch to heavy triples, but the thing is I kinda like volume!

    As long as I'm squatting couple times a week im happy!

    23.10.13

    No workout due to illness! Vomiting and Diarreah at work, felt awful yesterday, and this morning I feel fragile.

    So probably no sessions for a couple days which sucks!

    Then go on holiday Saturday 26.10.13for a week so probably no sessions then either!
