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?

    Sorry too post in you journal, just interested to see wha your goals are, whats your current weight, bodyfat at, how long you been lifting?

    Cheers

    I've always gone to the gym with the conviction that I'll be the hardest working mother****er in the joint. Make that your credo, and hope we don't lift at the same place.

    No prob FAngel. Feel free. My goals are to diet down and compete someday. I'm 27, 5'9", 240lbs, bf% 14-16 range. I'm keeping at this size to keep my strength as high as possible to keep adding size. I find when I'm at a lower bf% I can't come near the weight I lift now. I've been lifting for just over two years now.

    Chest Friday Mar.9

    Bench press:275x10,295x7,315x5
    Incline db press:100x10,110x7,120x5
    Incline db flyes:skipped
    Cable crossovers:30x12,30x10,30x10

    Great workout. I didn't do dumbbell flyes because my shoulder joints started to feel a bit wore out from yesterday's workout(usually do shoulders on wednesday and take thursday off). Considering I didn't take a day between shoulders and chest I couldn't be happier with the results.

    Did a max tonight. Wasn't to hard. My target was for 405 by the end of December this year. Thats just been moved up to end of July. It's only 40 more pounds. If I don't get it no problem, the heat in the summer kills me. Flyes were strange. I skipped them last week so... stranger things have happened. 405 here I come.

    Took the night off from doing SLDL's. Front squats are going really well. May up the weight again next week because the first set is really easy. 335lbs is heavy on the shoulders so it may only be a 10lbs increase. Legs can take it no problem.

    Had to go to a different gym tonight. My gym closed for the week while they move back to their old building. I can't wait, I loved that old building. Couldn't get into triceps tonight. I was pretty tired by the time I got to doing them. This gym I went to the AC is broke. It was really hot in there. Atmosphere isn't the same either. Skipped incline french press. I just had to get outta there before I died of heat stroke.

    Good quick workout. Dumbbell shoulder press was awesome. One good thing about going to that other gym, I keep a good pace and get outta there quick. Did a few things different this week. Back to my regular workout next week.

    Last week for barbell bench so I decided to go for one last max. Added ten pounds and got it. It's hard to keep that from coming down fast. First set of incline dumbbells were really squirrly. Bench wouldn't set to the right angle quite right. Went to a different bench and it was perfect. Cables aren't the same as my gym.

    This gym's pulldown machine are very smooth. The spider row has a small pad and was very hard to use. The pad would press under my ribs making it hurt like hell. I cut that one short.

    Well...It's my first week back to hack squats. I couldn't be more disapointed. I toke last week off so that could have made a difference too. I got the right depth on the hacks so that was one good thing. I'm looking to get 520 for 12 reps pyramiding up to 610 for 6 reps. We will see. I was getting 600 for 5 reps before I moved to front squats. If I don't get this I will be pi$$ed.

    The owner forgot to put out the 95 pound dumbbells when the gym opened in the new location. So I decided to try my first set with the 100's. It went really well. I can easily do two more reps on the final set at 120. I just wanted to see how hard they would be to kick up. My wrists were really wobbly at the top so I did 3 reps and called it quits on that for this week. I wil get 5 reps for sure next week.
