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?

    G-B's Journal

    I decided that my training has really been lacking lately, so what better to get me motivated than to post my own journal and keep it updated.

    These pics were taken with in the last month, and just show how fat I really have gotten.

    I have been clean for about 6-7 months now and have gone from a good 210-215 down to 190, give or take a few pounds.

    My goals right now are to lean up quite a bit. I had a BF% test done (calipers) and it came out to be 16%. I believe it is actually a little higher than that right now. Once I get down to around 12% I will then focus on putting on a few pounds of quality muscle.

    Right now my eating habbits could be a lot better than what they are. I only eat 2-4 times a day, depending on what I am doing that day. With my work and school schedule it is hard to find time to eat, and when I do find time to eat usually it isnt too healthy. My water intake isnt all that great either. I only drink about 3 glasses of water a day. I have 1 protein shake post-training that I mix with 12oz of 2% milk, and 4 scoops of Designer Protein.

    I am also training only 4 times a week right now.
    Mon- Chest and bi's
    Tues- Legs and calves
    Thurs- Back and tri's
    Sat- Shoulders and trap

    Currently I am not doing cardio at all. With in the next 3-4 weeks I will start running on the treadmill 3 times a week for 20 minutes. Start out slow at first and then gradually increase the time I spend on the treadmill.

    Any suggestions or comments are welcome.

    I have to plan my meals around work and school too. Here's a suggestion, get a big thermus, through like 4-6 scoops of protein in it, fill it up with water and through in some ice cubes to keep it cold. Carry this around with you and whenever you get a chance take a few big gulps out of it. Not the most scientific way to do it, but at least you'll be getting some protein every 2 hours or so. It wont go bad as long as it stays cold.

    I am a whopping 5'5". And the camera looks as thought it took a few pounds off of me. The caliper test said 16% but I believe it to me a little higher.

    Meal 3 - Isopure protein bar and 12oz water

    Meal 4 - 2 chicken breasts mixed with 4 egg whites, 1 cup brown rice and topped with salsa, a glass of Dr Pepper (that wont help eh?)

    .
    LOL, I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that you're prolly not using 200 kilo's for leg extension....200 lbs is impressive tho, especially after squatting 315 then using 6 plates for hack squat....them quads show it man...

    ?- why no direct hamstring work? Do you do deads with back?
