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?

    One of those sets of deadlift was warmup, I just included it anyway. Those hyperextensions are with no weight, so they aren't hard, so that pretty much brings it to nine.

    Stationary Bicycle: ~8 minutes


    Diet:

    Crappy, heh...I ate a roast beef sandwich today instead of tuna..it still has protein, but not as much. Ate some snacks when I got home because lunch was tiny kinda and also I didn't eat eggs But I am gonna have some chicken/asparagus(sp?) stir fry for dinner. Drinken 3 liters, gonna finish off the day with around 5 liters. Still need to make my new diet plan. Maybe I should start waking up ten minutes earlier.

    Lifting:

    5/3/01 - Chest/Shoulders

    Flat barbell bench press: 185 x 4, 185 x 4, 185 x 6
    Flat dumbbell bench press: 60 x 10, 8, 8
    Flat dumbbell flies: 30 x 10, 10, 8
    Lateral Dumbbell Raises: 15 x 10, 10, 8
    Rear Dumbbell Raises: 3 sets x 10, 10, 8
    Shoulder machine presses: 50 x 10, 10, 8
    Dumbbell shrugs: 80 x 10, 10, 8

    First two sets of bench I had no spotter, last one I did. I felt weak today and that is because I haven't done chest in a week and a half, so it's understandable. Next time if I get a sunburn, hopefully it won't hurt so bad I can't bench. Also added machine shoulder presses into workout.


    Diet:

    Late start, ate meal 1 late, meal 2 had taco salad with beef/bean/cheese/lettuce. I think I am going to add a meal into my plan at 3:30 and then make Meal 3, Meal 4 and then put that around 5 and then put Meal 4 right now at 7 and then Meal 5 at 9. Just gotta find a meal to put in at 3:30.

    Pullups: Wide-Grip: 10, 6, Close-Grip: 4 (all the way down)
    Concentration dumbbell curls: 30 x 8, 8, 40 x 6

    Diet:

    Good so far...sticking to my diet I just made. Missed Meals 4 and 5 though since I had to work. So I ate 2/3rds of a chicken thin crust pizza...had around the same protein, but probably more carbs. Pizza was goooood! The cottage cheese I ate tonight tasted like sh!t so I think I need to find something to replace that..any suggestions?

    Actually, those kickbacks work my triceps very good. They are hard if you do them slow and controlled.

    Fast twitch are called fast twitch becuase they fatigue FAST. They are stimulated to a greater degree with FAST contractions.

    Heath, don't try to train fast twitch and slow twitch fibers in different sessions. Just do them in the same session.

    For example,

    Chest:

    Bench Press - 1-3 sets, of 1-5 reps. 1-2 sets, of 10-15 reps.

    Flye - 1-2 sets, of 3-5 reps. 1-2 sets, of 10-15 reps.

    There you go, both fast twitch and slow twitch fibers are maximally stimulated in one session.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
