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?

    Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis + graphs

    Before I started my journal I wanted to have some hard data. This is why yesterday I purchased a "Terraillon" scale with Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA).

    These are the results I read out this morning:

    Weight: 73.8 KG
    Skeletal Muscle Mass: 31.3 KG
    Bone Mass: 4.0 KG
    Body Fat: 12.9%
    Total Body Water: 60.6%
    Daily Calorie Reference: 3609
    Optimal Weight: 77.4 KG
    Optimal Calorie Reference: 3701

    I started 3 months ago, so probably put on more muscle faster than I ever will be able to, but I now have a number to focus on, 31.3 KG of muscle mass. I'm not too displeased by this number, but I look forward to seeing it go up. Next I'll measure how much I can lift, and I'll measure myself, and as time goes by I'll start graphing some of the data out in excel.

    Be careful with this stuff. You need to be ridiculously hydrated for it to be 'accurate'. Also don't get in the habit of needing a specific equipment before you start something or train something (where there's a will theres a way). Make due with what you have and work out around that.
    My journal
    400(335) Bench Press
    600(520x3 2xBW) Dead Lift
    500(495x1) ATG Squat
    Total: 1500(1350)
    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.
