The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

So I flushed the toilet 18 times and wiped it down an extra 15 and then used 6 seat covers to protect my anus from any chance that another truant pubic hair might be introduced to my lower region. Do you know how hard it is to poop with the thought of another guy's pubic hair running rampant in your brain? Do you know the ill feelings that fill your head as your place of sanctuary is violated? Well, Do you?

    08.24.2002-08.25.2002

    Let's not even discuss the taboo things that occured this weekend. Let's just say I didn't eat very well but I sure as hell drank to the best of my ability.

    23 shots. This included vodka, whiskey, Parrot Bay (coconut rum), Rumpleman's peppermint schnapps, Jagermeister, and Bacardi 151.

    I do know I licked an Asian girl, looked at porn while I puked, and was way too honest with a lot of people. I love alcohol.

    Tomorrow I'll be officially 23 years closer to death. Wish me luck as I descend into the abyss.

    I went to bed at 11:00 but I slept horribly. It was hot and miserable and my girlfriend kept tossing and turning. I probably got like 1 hour of solid sleep. I got up at 6:50 this morning and felt like shiiiiit.
    Total Sleep: ~8 hours - broken

    IV. Daily Rant
    I am going to buy myself a large amount of synthol this week and head to the gym. I'll inject a bunch of it in all of the muscles of one side of my body and go into the gym doing one armed curls and one legged squats. When the first person approaches me I am going to tell them that it's a new technique that the big bodybuilders use and that I just started a few weeks before and you can already see the progress. If you only train one side of your body at a time it grows at 2x the rate [insert meaningless jargon using words like 'synthesis' and 'receptors']. I bet I'll get half the fücks in the place to do 1 armed bench presses and cable curls. SHEEP! YOU'RE ALL MY SHEEP.

    The End

    It was nasty straight, but even nastier with 1 shot of vodka. ...and even NASTIER in 8oz of fruit punch. My day of recovering rocked. Ginger ale and water my man!

    II. Training
    Daily Rating: *****
    Not too shabby of a workout. I had good energy and got done in exactly one hour. I could do it a lot quicker if I didn't have to fück around with my dumbells.

    Front Squat
    Warmup: 45lbsx8, 95x10
    Workset: 115lbsx10
    This felt really good today! I went ass to calves and felt my form was very good. The weight wasn't fantastic by any means but this is a hard one to get used to. My legs weren't even a little bit sore the rest of the night (like normal leg workouts).

    Shrugs ala trapBar
    Warmup: 140lbsx10
    Workset: 175lbsx10
    I think my ROM on this sucks but I can't really tell without a mirror. Note to self: Get a mirror. Additional note to self: you're a sexy bitch.

    Parallel Grip Chinups
    Warmup: n/a
    Workset: 10lbx8, 12.5lbsx5
    I didn't feel the first set worked me enough. I forgot to weigh down my racks so they toppled a little. If I do these as the first thing in my workout I could probably get a little more weight.

    Dips
    Warmup: n/a
    Worksets +10x10, +15x10
    Failed on the 10th of the second set. I love dips. Went up 10lbs since last week.

    Lateral Raises
    Warmup: n/a
    Workset: 17.5lbsx10
    The last rep of this excersize is stressful.

    Incline Dumbell Press
    Warmup: n/a
    Workset: 50lbsx8
    My arms were a bit wobbly after all the other junk so these were hard, but I focused on my chest as much as possible.

    One Arm Dumbell Row
    Warmup: n/a
    Workset: 50lbsx10 L:R, 50lbsx9 L:R
    The first set wasn't enough so I did a second. I was exhausted at the end of my workout though.

    Weighted Crunches
    Warmup: every other friggen excersize
    Workset: 50lbx12, 55lbsx12
    *yawn* I need a better way to do these. Either that or like 100lb+ dumbells. Next week I'll try my shortbar with plates.

    III. Slumber
    Daily Rating: *****
    Bed time was 11:00pm. After a quick handjob from the woman (which I call "manual sex") I went to sleep. I woke up about 6:30am totally awake, but I didn't need to get up until 7:00. I had to piss pretty bad so I went to the bathroom and I leaked for like 2 minutes. It sucked. I went back to sleep for 28 minutes until my alarm went off at 7:00am. The day started off well.
    Total Sleep: ~8 hours - broken

    IV. Daily Rant
    So it was my birthday today and I didn't do much. I rented "A Beautiful Mind" with that Crowe fück. He's such a dickface. I, however, enjoyed the movie. Guess who was in it? Remember the movie Labyrinth? Remember the lead girl Sara? Well she was in it. What a fine looking piece of ass she grew into. Anyway, that was my exciting evening. I think in homage to the movie Labyrinth I shall sing you a song.

    *cough*
    ~
    You remind me of the babe! What babe? The babe with the power! What power? The power of voodoo. Who do? You do. Do what? Remind me of the babe!

    I heard my baby, crying hard as babe could cry. What could I do-o-o? My baby's love had gone and left my baby bluuue. Nobody knew...what kind of magic spell to use. Slime and snails? Or puppy dog tails? Thunder and lightning...and baby said:
    Dance magic dance (dance magic, dance).
    Dance magic dance (dance magic, dance).
    Put that baby spell on me, slap that baby make it free!

    It would be V. Manual Sex...

    Hmmm, I could make a Sex section and describe in full detail the disturbing acts of intercourse that my girlfriend and I involve ourselves in nightly. Any interest?

And again at 5:00am. I got up at 6:45 to make my food for today. Someday I'll get in bed early I promise.

    I am so pissed off at work today that I feel being clever would be a grave injustice to the purity of my anger.

    V. Goal o' the Day
    This is a new section inspired by Jane. Thanks Jane.
    This section will contain my goals for the day. I plan on having a new goal every day and I am sure they will be trivial until I get used to setting them. Today's goal is inspired my my šhit-ass blender which spilled orange protein magic all over my kitchen counter. This goal isn't personal, spiritual, and doesn't deal with midgets in firemen's hats, but it's what I'd like to do today.

    Goal :Research to find the best blender I can that holds about 64oz of liquid and is easy to wash.
    Subgoal : Read the next chapter in my book on meditation.

    Ok, I felt like a moron because my goal was to find a fücking blender.

    III. Slumber
    Daily Rating: *****
    I got in bed after the MTV VMA's last night which sucked. Guns n' Roses came on and I got all friggen excited then Axl SUCKED and it was a totally different band and they looked like friggen Marilyn Manson or some bullšhit. I wanted to shoot myself in the head. I would rather rememeber GNR as they were...ass kicking hair band who broke through to the 90's. So it's about 11:30 and I get to sleep. I wake up a few hours later to piss and I see my clock is blinking so I get up, go to the bathroom, look at the clock with my blurry eyes then come back and set the alarms. Turns out it was 2:30, not 1:30. So I wake up a bunch more (natural clock) and my body is like "get up" and my brain says "I don't have to, punk" then my body is like "You've slept the proper amount, bitch, get up" and my brain's like "Fück you, you fückin dick! I'll get up whenever the fück I want." The battle raged on for 10 minutes and my brain won. So I wake up 5 minutes before my alarm and just get up. So I go out and look at the clock and flip out and call my boss. I ran out of the house lookin like a mess but I ended up only being 30 minutes late and I got a bonus of an extra hour of sleep or so. Go me.
    Total Sleep: ~8.5 hours - broken

    IV. Daily Rant
    My girlfriend's friends suck. We're always making these group plans to do **** and they always end up cancelling the plans and inviting themselves over to my apartment to drink. "No problem," you say? YES PROBLEM. They're mainly 20 years old (some are of age) and I live about 30 yards from the state police barracks. They come over, get rowdy, jump off of my balcony, and guess who goes to jail? THIS GUY. It's not bad enough that they are so friggen inconsiderate to cancel long standing plans, but COME ON. I don't want to be drinking and all that bullshit so I get to stare at a bunch of intoxicated aššholes running around the house making fools of themselves without me. Bah. Well, now I get to go clean up my large apartment so I can entertain the kiddies. Wish me luck.

    V. Goal o' the Day
    I have been neglecting myself on a mental level a lot lately. I mean I am always reading studies on nutrition, medicine, and the like but I haven't been taking the time to read books and relax. I am going to start doing this right now. I spend too much free time on the computer and in front of the TV since my girlfriend is a ravaging TV addict.
    Goal: Read a book every night this coming week.

    The End

    Thanks G². I appreciate your compliments.

    I am up to 157 dry today from 152 dry (morning weight). I think I am going to slow down my bulk a little as I think I'm going a bit quick. At this rate I'll hit my first goal (165) by mid september. I just don't want to need to lose 10lbs of fat

    Good. I exceeded most of my workout goals.

    Front Squat
    Warmup: 45lbsx10

    I found my balance slipping a bit towards the end of this. I was leaning forward slightly too much.

    Shrugs ala trapBar
    Warmup: 140lbsx10
    Workset: 175lbsx10, 185lbsx13, 185lbsx10
    Well, as it turns out, the last two workouts that I did shrugs, I was doing like 225-230lbs not the 170-175 I thought. I am mildly retarded.

    Parallel Grip Chinups
    Warmup: n/a
    Workset: +15lbsx9
    Nice set. That's what she said.

    Dips
    Warmup: n/a

    Exhale all of your air out and try to pull your stomach back toward your spine. I've been doing these daily to try to pull in my abdomen. It seems to actually be working.

    New Diet! I gained a little too much fat so I can only assume my calories were too high so I made this diet up for the week. The only problem is that I didn't gain any weight last week which kind of scares me. I do, however, need a new scale that is digital.

    So as a synopsis: I am getting slighlty fatter, or at least holding more water. I think my body adjusted to the high calories, but I am afraid to up them anymore. So I do the most counter-intuitive thing I can, which would be to lower my calories by a little over 200 and see what I look like in 2 weeks. I am already 1lb ahead of my goal, so I should be OK. If I get rid of that 1lb of fat maybe I'll see where my problem is. 2lbs muscle, 1lb of fat...hmm.

    V. Daily Rant
    People anger me. Almost every single day, mid-morning, I go to the lunch room to make my second meal. Simultaneously a signal that is inaudible to all but the fat and stupid rings out. Each day a different slob will approach me with the same exact question. "Breakfast?" Rather than do the smart thing and just say "Yes" I tell them something along the lines of "Meal number two." Of course this brings up a bunch of questions about my health and eating habits. My top 5 favorite responses thus far:
    5. Do you have a health problem that requires you to eat that often?
    4. Do you like to cook?
    3. Oh.
    2. Wow, I wish I had your metabolism!
    1. You're going to get fat if you keep eating so much!

    I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE I HATE STUPID PEOPLE. Die.

    Then I get the pleasure of walking past our "health center" to find these tubs of lard walking on a Stairmaster for 5 minutes and nearly sweating to death. "What's so bad about that," you think? I JUST SAW THE SAME FÜCKING PERSON EATING A DOUGHNUT IN THEIR CUBICAL. This is why the fat stay fat and the dumb get dumber. As a society we're innundated with fallacies. People think they can "walk off" that donut and burn fat because they hit their "target heart rate" for 5 god-damned minutes. What did you have for breakfast, fat-ass? Let me guess...waffles? Toaster strüedels? Oh, lardy-love boat, is that candy in your cubical? Can I have a little piece? Here, in exchange I'll give you some of this QUIT BEING A BIG FÜCKING IDIOT. Just because you do your half-assed excersizing every single day doesn't mean you're healthy. Die.

    Do any of the fat guys lift weights here? NO. You know why? They're afraid of bulking up. Do any of the girls lift weights here? NO. You guessed it. You know what makes it worse? We have a "personal fitness advisor" here at work. I'll call him "Brad." All 150lbs of "Brad" walks around telling people about what weights they should be using and how to properly execute a squat and bench press on the fücking Smith machine. Die.

    I guess I'll go home and eat some cake before I do my 200 sit-ups.
