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?

    You can't blame it all on laziness either... There's a lot of times you probably aren't adding in you were busy, making it very hard to keep a tight lifting schedule. My dedication is very high, but work (the Army) doesn't allow me to devote my time in the gym more often than not.

    The biggest thing is you still have the drive and desire to get in the gym, get stronger, and better your physical preparedness. Once you've lost that drive, you then have problems to worry about.

    Keep with it man, you're doing great stuff... and like Coke said, we all go through this.

    Con, Coke, BoB- thanks for the words of support. Time to get back to work.

    Weight 194 (getting close to 185 goal)
    Floor Press
    340 x 1
    355 x miss

    Standing press
    135 x 8
    200 x 1
    155 x 8

    Skulls

    Nothing great. Decided to do overheads for sensei and BW's contest. Lifting three days a week with conditioning mixed throughout for awhile. Things are feeling good and I need to start getting after it if I am going to hit my end of the year lifting goals.

    Stump, BoB, Coke - thanks for stopping in.

    I have worked out since my last post, but don't remember any of it.

    Standing military
    195 x 3
    225 x 1

    Deadlift
    315 x 3

    Pullups
    A lot of sets x 3

    Several warmups for each lift, but I don't care what those numbers are. Nothing crazy, but very happy with the press. Unracked the first time and had to reset. Second time probably took six seconds to fully lock out. Started on shoulders, no leg drive at all and full lockout and hold. No video because I didn't have the camera. Deadlifts felt insanely heavy, that's what happens when I don't workout like I should be. Hopefully my girlfriend will start lifting with me at night and we can keep one another in line.

    Been awhile, again.

    Chain bench (40 pounds of chains)
    Warm up
    295 +chains x 1
    315 +chains x 1

    Close Grip
    225 x 6 x 2
    315 x 1
    225 x 12

    Skulls
    95 x 8 x 3

    Some side laterals. Strength is down, but not as bad I figured it would be. Started school this week, easy class. If I would stop overanalyzing my lifting and just set a routine and lift I would be better off. I think three days a week, bench, squat, deads for now. Bench I can alternate my ME lift, the other two follow a five rep max plan. Once I fail at five, drop to three and then to one. With my dead and squat so weak, I don't think a westside approach would be best for me at this point. I still want to throw in conditioning work on non lifting days.

    Last weigh in was 190, but I have been eating everthing since so I know I am heavier now.
