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?

    maxes: bench;195/ db bench;90x3/ squat; 315x6/ deadlift 275x6/ skull crusher; 105x6/ bb curl; 80x5

    my goal is to get bigger, cuz strength doesn't matter since nobody'd believe my stats unless i get bigger. i wanna be 150 by the end of may, and cut b4 my freshman year of college starts.

    current diet
    5:15a microwavable (good protein, but a lot of sodium)
    7:30 nlarge, 3 scoops w/ milk, sometimes w/ 80g dextrose and creatine
    12:35 nlarge 3 scoops w/milk
    3:30 nlarge 3 scoops w/ milk
    5:00 cmf protein, 3 scoops w/ milk
    7:00 rice, chicken, beef, some veggies
    9:00 nlarge 3 scoops, w/ milk

    this is what i use right now, and i know some mistakes in it, such as only 2 natural food meals!

    6pm today;
    bl deadlifts 275x6, 285x5,4
    pullups (false grip, somewhat wide grip) 10,10,10

    bad scheduling today, didn't have enough time to do calves. The deadlifts took a while cuz i got so tired, i felt i needed more rest (4min). i wanted to do 50 pullups, but my forearms and lats were tired from the deadlifts.

    stats
    136 @ 8%bf, still 5'4

    At least my deadlift went up 10lbs today. I did it off dymetadrine, which was pretty cool. I'm just paranoid about drug tests' error for a job i'm applying for. Seems scary to do squats and deadlifts w/o stimlulants; makes me REAL scared sometimes because of all that weight on my lower back.

    thanx

    10:40am-11:14am
    skull crusher 105x6,6,6
    bb bicep curl 85x5,3
    calf raises (bent kneed, loose form cuz my shins hurt) 720x12,12,10

    today, i tried the niacin every 15 min thing. pretty cool, w/ the flush thing, but the rash was annoying. I hope it really boosts gh, cuz i need to grow taller!

    134.5lb, 8%bf, still 5'4 (lost some water, maybe cuz it is in the morning)
    ran out of nlarge! i'm using cmf (54g protein) by protein fact w/ 80g dextrose instead. I'm still sore from the deadlifts! my lats, traps, and lower back is so sore, i can't stand up straight without getting tired...

    leg day
    squats 295x4, 315x5,5
    sldl 195x6, 225x6

    133lbs @ 7%bf

    feel better, i think i'm cured. thank goodness for all the vitc i got.

    my squats are slowly reapproaching 345, the highest i've ever done. I couldn't believe how much my squat went down because of staying too low in bf for wrestling (4-5%bf for almost six months). hopefully, in a month or two, i hope to be back with 345x3.

    next week, i'm gonna start cutting (abcde diet) @ about 1500-1800cals.

    this week was horrible. didn't have time to lift, and now, i had a wisdom tooth surgically removed. i hope to do sth, at least, b4 i recover. this is the second operation this year!!! with all the time restraints, i'm gonna concentrate on upper body, since my legs are already ahead of everything. I'm also trying jiu-jitsu, freestyle and grecoroman wrestling now, so that'll be my cardio. i haven't eaten a single meal today, and now i'm like 132lbs.

    thanx. yeah, i wanna post a pic, cuz a lot of ppl doubt my squat (345). look at my quads (the 3rd pic down). i hope to get a bigger back, cuz my shoulders don't stick out that much. i also hope to raise my bf, but my metabolism is too high and i can't find resources for a good diet. anything i should improve (i already know i need bigger calfs)?

    My goodness you do not look 134lbs you look more like 150lbs & you are so lean congrats. Do you take supplements like Creatine because that can really help your size gains. Keep up the hard work, I assume from your post that you are in your senior year in High School and to look like that shows incredible discipline as most of the people I knew in hs didn't look like that. And don't worry about off days everybody has them. Just look ahead and think about following your training and eating.

    OT: today, i got a letter from UC Berkeley, and got accepted! but for the spring 2002 semester, so i'll have to go take their extension program (or take the semester off!) b4 i'm actually admitted. i don't know why they're doing this: i got in, but i didn't. the thing that sucks is that my twin got in the fall 2001, and that makes things even more confusing for our parents financial and housing plans! Cal Day's next month, and i hope they have a good gym!

    Today, i did back and biceps

    bb curl 90x3, 85x3, 3
    db curl 35x5,5
    chin ups x12
    pull ups 10, 10, 9, 9

    man, maybe it was the heavy lifting in the morning (to help my mom for groceries, no cart!), but my reps went down on bbcurl. for some reason, i did 90x3, but not 85x>3 .

    current stats
    136lbs, 8.5%bf
    my weight is going back up, after two surgeries and several illness... argh! I guess it'll take longer to get to 150 @10%.

    new max bb curl 85lbs.

    chest and triceps
    db bench 90x7, 3, 3
    skull crushers 105x8,7
    db bench 85x 4

    man, i'm exhausted. i had a bad warm up and couldn't finish my workout for bench. for some reason, my lats are affected by db bench (last week, my lats were sore after chest day) and it seemed to affect my db bench today. skull crushers went up in reps.

    134lbs @ 8.6%bf
