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?

    Short Term Goal - 700/450/600

    Hey guys.

    i guess its finally time for me to start a journal on here. Ive been tracking my progress outside of WBB(in a notebook) and have made amazing progress so far.

    i started out as a 130lb stick who could only bench 95, squat 115 and deadlift 115 at age 15.

    i'm currently 16, and my maxes are bench: 205, squat: 225, deadlift: 245, and weighing in at 155@~12-14%BF (i think).

    My goal is to bench 255, squat 315 and deadlift 345, and weigh 165-170@~11%.

    I am training for snowboarding and Mixed Martial Arts, mainly Muay Thai though. I've been snowboarding for 10 years, and training in Muay thai/BJJ for about 7 months. I'm hoping to have my first fight before my birthday(april) of next year.

    I used to lift 3-4 days per week on a 4 day split. Currently i am only lifting 2-3 days per week until i get my weight room put in at my new house (christmas time. I'm getting a power rack, 300lb oly set, freestanding flat bench, rubber flooring, mirror, mats, and all that good stuff. no im not spoiled. im paying for most of it and my whole family plans on using it.) I'm on a Upper/lower split until then.

    my current workout is:
    Day 1. Upper
    flat bench 3x5
    Bent over rows 3x5
    DB shoulder press 3x8
    Pullups(various grips) 3x8
    Push Press 3x5

    Day 2. Lower
    Squat 3x8
    Deadlift 3x8
    Calf Raises 3x5
    Goodmornings 3x8
    Lunges 3x12

    I'm trying to get in about 3100 cals per day and about 130g of protein per day.

    Here we go.

    i figure i might aswell post my workout from yesterday.

    upper

    Flat bench = 155x8 165x8 165x8 (didnt stick to my rep scheme)
    BB rows = 115x8 115x8 115x8
    shoulder press = 50'sx8 50'sx8 50'sx8
    pullups = BWx8 BWx7 BWx7
    Pushpress = didnt do. stupid grade 10's crowding the weight room
    Dips = bw+35x6 bw+35x6 bw+35x6

    it turns out that both grade 10 gym classes were in the weight room at the same time as my weightlifting class. 30 kids standing around watching one kid bench on the smith machine while 15 watch another kid doing abs and another 15 "haning out" by the power rack.

    and today. rest day.

    im at about 2000 cals so far with aobut 60g of protein. dinner + hockey game + home made weight gainer shake + nightime snack = 3100+ cals with about 100 g of protein.

    Well i just got back from hockey. we lost 5-2. i got a roughing penalty for hitting one of my buddies. my cardio is not where it should be. I pulled my groin aswell so it might hinder my lower body workout tomrow but i'll muscle through.

    Looking good so far detard. One piece of advice (up the protein). Make sure you still consume lots on rest days too.Muscle growth and repair can still occur 48-72 hrs after a workout.
    Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.

    You gotta eat bro, if you want it bad enough you'll find a way. Im quite the opposite, I can eat like theres no tomorrow and I purposely try to avoid having foods around that are easily/quickly consumed.

    Ofcourse at 15 I think my bodyweight was in the 260 pound rage with my lifts being higher then your goals. Ofcourse alot of that can be attributed to being almost 100 pounds heavier then you are, so EAT LIKE YOU MEAN IT!!!!!

    In all seriousness, the extra LBM will be invaluable towards meeting your goals.

    Lower
    Squats=
    155x5
    185x5
    185x5
    (box squats for a change)

    Deadlift=
    185x5
    185x5
    185x5
    (didnt feel that heavy)

    Goodmornings=
    115x5

    (lower back wasnt feeling that strong today)

    Lunges=

    (problems with groin pull)

    calf raises=
    185x10
    185x10
    185x10
    (had to pretty much do them with 20 seconds rest between sets cuz the bell rang)

    all in all, pretty good. those lunges really killed me though.

    IRL- yeah i konw i gotta eat up. thats what i plan on doing now. its the protein that i dont get enough of.

    Nice lifts. You are a step ahead getting started as intense as you are at your age, keep lifting heavy!

    thanks for the motivation CSN!

    well i jsut got back from Muay thai where we did 10 mins of skipping and worked on knees, defence to kicks and counters. pretty good training sessoin. my training partner slipped up while hitting pads and i took a knee to the face which brought me back to the reality that im not invincible.

    right now im just scarfing down a big mac meal which tastes REALLY GOOD.

    all around a pretty good workout. again the grade 10's were benching on the smith machine and doing abs, but at least i helped to teach one of them how to do push press, bent over rows, and dumbell rows.

    my bench wasnt feeling that great today. every weight felt really heavy. same goes for my dumbell shoulder press. i decided to throw in some dips because my tri's werent that tired and some bb curls just for fun at the end. Still looking forward to my power rack which i should have by the weekend.

    upper

    bb bench
    135x5

    really easy, almost no strain

    DB bench

    That Muay Thai looks to be it, I train BJJ as much as I can. I need to look for a Muay Thai school. Nice deads, I see em comming up in wt, good work.
