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?

    Like the routine, should produce the results your looking for.
    Yeah I get DOMS like mad. I swear I could get them from carrying groceries....
    I thought routine would be pretty simple, but I'm taking that back now.

    It's just something new. You'll get use to it.

    If the DOMS are that bad you should look into ETS.

    I hope I get used to it soon My student budget is a little tight for ETS. Is there a product that can help, but doesn't cost as much? Right now I'm stretching every 1/2 hour or so.

    Ouch, hockey was a mess. We were outnumb'ered 17-12 so there was lots of ice time. I thought I was going to puke on the bench by the end of the first

    Todays workout:

    Chinups: 5, 5, 4, 2, 1
    Hang Clean and Press: 40 kg - 5, 5, 5, 4, 3
    Weighted Situps (db on chest): 8x30 lbs, 8x 35lbs
    Pullthroughs: 8x60 lbs, 10x 70lbs

    Chins were brutal. I guess that's the downside of bulking - bodyweight exercises go down the ****ter.
    I was happy with the C&P. I've never done them before and I did a warmup with 30 kg. I think I could have got the 5x5 if I hadn't done the warmup set. I definately need to work on my technique, but it's getting there.

    EDIT: Apparently "out-number" (without the dash) is an emoticon. Who would have thought...

    ddegroff - I play defense - I don't know what to do with the puck when I'm playing forward lol

    Holy - Yeah the workout was ok. My shoulders are ****, so the press part is what killed me on the C&P. We were all heaving on the bench after the first shift....I guess that's what happens when a bunch of CS students try to play hockey

    Sounds easy on paper, but it never seems to happen. I don't get it.

    Really it should be down the ice and back then off.

    If you stay on the ice too long your legs die quick. Its a long game if your taking 1min long shifts.

    Deadlifts (245): 5, 5, 5, 4, 3
    Dips (bodyweight): 5, 5, 5, 4, 3
    Cable rows (45 kg): 8, 6
    Back hypers (35 lbs): 8, 8

    I felt my form degrading on deads. I also ended up hacking up my shins and bleeding on the bar. Good times
    As for the dips, well that's why bulking and bodyweight exercises don't mix well.

    All in all, a good workout. Every muscle in my body is tired

    I've been slacking on the diet since I got back to school. I was going to start getting on track tomorrow, but said **** it - I'm starting now. I was 1k calories short for the day (me no hungry), but I pounded back a shake and my actually eat more than I planned

    Incline DB press: 5x45, 5, 4, 3, 2x50,
    Squats: 5, 5, 5, 5, 3x195 (My hip cramped up on the last set)
    DB Rows: 8x30, 8x35
    Single Leg squats: 8x20

    My bench sucks I gotta sort out the weight selection, but I'm working on it. Since I know I can hit 5 w/50 lb DB, I'll just start there next time. I was suprised I got the squats. I'm sure I had it in me, but my hip felt really weird while I was doing it so I stopped.

    There was no room to do Clean and Press, so I had to change around the order of things.

    Chinups (underhand grip): 5, 5, 5, 3, 2
    Pull throughs: 8x80, 7x100
    Clean and Press: 3x50kg, 5, 4, 4, 4 x 42.26 kg
    situps: 8x40, 5x40

    Stupid me forgot that a 10 kg increase from last week is a lot. Apparently there aren't any 1.25 kg plates around, so I had to use the 2.5 lbs. This is why the metric and imperial systems should stay seperate.
    I did something funky to my lower back during the last set of situps. The pain has subsided, but it's feeling pretty tight. I'm going to rest it and see how it feel in a coupl of days.

    My workout on saturday was ****ty. I busted my shin open on the first set of deadlifts. It wouldn't stop bleeding, so I decided to try doing deadlifts with a barbell in each hand. That didn't go over so good The rest of the workout was a bust, too.

    Now today, on the other hand, was good.

    Squat: 205lbs 5x5
    Incline barbell BP: 95 lbs 5x5
    Split Squat: 8x25 lbs, (8 right, 5 left)x25 lbs
    DB row: 8x35, 8x40

    Barring the hip soreness on the last set, I nailed the 5x5 last week. I upped the wieght by 10 lbs and hit again this week! Holy **** I did not expect that
    The BP was atrocious (sp?). I started with 115 and nearly pinned myself to the bench. Dropped down to 95 and it was too easy. Oh well, more weight next time.

    Nice workouts! After I tore up my shin doing deads, I always were sweat pants so it doesn't happen again.

    Keep working on those squats bro!

    Hip Stretch

    I do those inbetween each set. Also yesterday I started swining my leg back and forth (foreward then backward, then side to side) then did the stretch. Really helped out forsure.

    detard: Thanks! I pumped for nailing the second 5x5

    ddegroff: I'm debating about getting sweats, but I hate wearing pants when I workout. Doesn't that bar just chew up the pants anyways??

    I wear my sweats 5days a week (different pairs ofcourse) working out, work, class. They seem to be holding up fine.

    I love wearing pants while squatting, deads or any leg work. My legs feel so warm and I feel I can push them harder.
