The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Clockwork24's Journal

    Hey guys...I've made a few posts over the last 2 months and its long overdue that I've started a journal here. I'm a 25 year old male from Long Island, NY. I'm 5'8” and 137 lbs. I've been lifting weights for around 3 ½ months, but I haven't been going as many days as I should. My diet has been an even bigger problem because although I know I need to eat a lot, I've been on a wacky schedule and eat most of my food later in the day. I am, however, getting stronger and I definitely gained a good 5 pounds of what appears to be muscle. If I hit the gym more religiously and ate more, I know I could have gained over 15 lbs during those 3 months. With all that being said, my short term goal is to gain at least 15 lbs over the next 2 months so that I'll weigh no less than 150 lbs and have noticeably bigger arms by the time classes start in early September.
    My routine has been changing a bit over the weeks while sticking to the M-W-F split. I started off doing chest/triceps – legs/shoulders – back/biceps. Then I switched to chest/biceps – legs/shoulders – back/triceps. I've been doing mostly compound excercises such as deadlift, squats, dumbell presses, dips, french-press, etc. Most excercises are done in sets of 3-4 with 6-12 reps. Last week things got screwed up because I trained with someone who likes to train one muscle group each day so he had me doing 5 chest exercises in 1 ½ hours! My plan is to start the WBB#1 workout tomorrow, but I'm still open to suggestions on how to tweak things so that I can see some great gains.
    Now to officially start my journal I will give you guys an idea of what I'm cramming into my mouth as I type. Lol
