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?

    Recreation of a STEVE!!!

    So Here goes!

    This is attempt two at keeping a journal. My first was a bust for multiple reasons:

    1. I was dumb lol

    2. I was a much higher body fat, I weighed in the 220's, I wanted to be stronger so I kept bulking but was unhappy with my fat so my diet was bad and inconsistant.

    3. I was not as serious about Powerlifting as I am now.

    [/B]::THE STATS::[/B]

    Age: 16
    Weight: 173
    Height: 6'3
    lifting exp. 2 years

    I do not have my maxes as of now. My Bench max will be done on monday, squat tuesday and deadlift most likely on friday.
    GOALS

    February 10th / March 10th / April 10th (b-day )
    _________________________________________________________________
    Bench 265 / 280 / 300

    squat 405 / 435 / 465

    Dead lift 365 / 395 / 420

    C&J 245 / 260 / 275

    to some these gains may be high...30 pounds in a month...but I gain very easily and quickly. It is just the goal I have to stay as lean as possible while gaining muscle that makes it a challenge. I am however at a body fat I am happy with so adding a little fat wont bother me like it used to (although my loose skin is annoying).

    Diet

    Currently my diet is poor. Far too few calories. Around 1200 a day. I don't Know how my weight is staying where it is.

    a sample:

    Meal 1:
    2 egg whites (34 calories, 4 protein)
    1 slice turkey (30 calories, 5 protein)
    Total: 64 calories, 9 protein

    Meal 2 :
    Pure protein Bar (170 calories, 20 protein)
    Total: 170, 20 protein

    Meal 3:
    Wrap (50 calories )
    3 oz chicken breast (100 calories, 21 protein)
    1 slice no fat cheese (30 calories, 5 protein)
    BBQ sauce (15 calories)
    Total: 195 calories

    Meal 4:
    3 oz chicken breast (100 calories 21 protein)

    Meal 5
    6 oz chicken breast (200 calories 42 protein)
    broccoli (60 calories)

    snack allowance (just little crap thru out the day i eat) 100 calories

    that is actually only around 900 calories. Maybe my 1200 estimate was alittle too optimistic.

    I will however, to begin my bulk, move to 1150 calories a day (1000 calories with a 15% increase). I will stay here until the weight gain stops. then add 15% more. I figure small increases in these calories, mostly from lean protein will not put fat on me.

    Another problem I know I have is a lack of fats in my diet. I am starting to supplement with Fish oils.

    Supplements

    Whey protein
    Pure Creatine mono
    Fish oils
    Multi vitamin
    Redline

    Training
    ::Extremely low reps:: I do weightlifting so I go for the 1rm

    Monday:
    Flat bench
    Incline bench
    Lockouts
    Close Grip Bench
    Skull Crushers
    Abs

    Tuesday:
    Dead lift
    shrugs
    pullups
    rows
    military
    curls

    Wendsday:
    Squat
    Leg extentions

    Lunges
    abs

    Thursday:

    skull crushers
    dips

    Friday:
    Dead lift
    shrugs
    pullups
    rows
    military
    curls
    abs

    I know my routine is probably pretty screwy but I have had good results. Of Course I would appriciate suggestions to my Diet, supplementation and training as this is a learning forum. Its why I came here a long time ago and I still have a lot to learn.


    I am excited to get started on my bulk starting MONDAY! . I hope all goes well. I will post My daily Lifting journal as well as my diet.

    I will also Post better pics tomorow

    hope you all enjoy following me along my journey!

    Ok so I didnt get those pics today, my friend forgot his camera.

    So far today I have eaten
    Meal 1
    8 egg whites (136 calories, 24 protein)
    2 slices turkey (60 calories, 14 protein)
    Piece of non fat cheese (30 calories, protein 5)
    Total: 226 calories 41 protein

    Meal 2:
    Homemade protein bar (238 calories, 40 protein)

    Meal 3:
    3 oz chicken (100 calories, 21 protein)

    Meal 4:
    Ĺ cup oats (150 calories , 5 protein)
    Ĺ cup strawberries (25 calories)
    Protein (105 calories, 25 protein)
    Total 280 calories, 30 protein

    Meal 5:
    Homemade protein bar (238 calories, 40 protein)
    Protein shake (110 calories, 24 protein)

    Pimp is back, wish you well as you recreate in the gym, lol. Honestly, it seems you are doing too much. I think if you hit up each body part just once per week, you'll keep on track better. You've got a lot to fill in with that 6'3 frame but take your time with everything as you are only 16 years of age, just stay on it all.
