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?

    Zalxder's Journal

    Follow me if you want to get ripped.

    I do WBB 2 works great, i added forearms chest and back day, and shoulder shrugs to shoulders and arms day.

    My maxes:

    Im incline benching 150 lbs (free weights)
    Decline 180
    dumbell flies 100
    incline skull crushers 70
    tricep pushdowns (on pulley) 170 (form could use work though)
    Bicep Curls 110 free weight, 125 straight bar
    hammer curls 100
    ab curling 180 lbs (on some weird machine)
    shoulder shrugs 225
    for obliques i hold a free weight, put my free hand behind my head (to support my neck) and squeeze obliques, 100 pound max (for each oblique)
    Deadlift 225 (only use deads for toning)
    Wide grip lat pulldowns on pulley type machine 220 lbs
    dumbell rows 240 lbs
    miliatary press with dumbells 110 lbs
    squats 340 excluding my own weight 220 touching butt with ankles
    calf raise 200 lbs on smith
    incline leg press 600 lbs
    hamstring (no idea some dumb machine that uses 1-20, im on 12)

    what i eat:

    Around 50 grams of fat a day
    Around 150 grams of protein
    Around 150 grams of carbs
    10 grams creatine 45 min before workout
    10 grams 30 minutes after workout
    15 grams L-glutamine 45 min before workout
    15 grams L-glutamine 30 minutes after workout
    i eat a semi big meal, mostly protein an hour and a half before workout
    and eat a semi big meal, 1/3 protein 1/3 carb 1/3 fats 30 minutes after
    Drink Soar carb drink (110 carbs) immediatly after workout
    Take "one a day" vitamin in morning
    And Vitamin E that is 660% DV
    Take 600% DV Zinc after school 2:30 PM
    And B complex pill


    No sweets or oily foods

    Things like:
    fruit (banana's are my favorite)
    Tuna Fish
    Luncheon meat (98% fat free turkey)
    Sandwich bread, the one in the yellow bag
    Granola bars
    Lots of cereal (breakfast)
    low fat yogurts
    low fat milk
    low fat cottage cheese

    Keys to success: (in order of most valuable in the gym)

    Form:Always keep good perfect form, especially on the last rep
    negatives: control the negative movement just as well as the positive
    Progression: Move up 5 pounds even if you know you cant, always use free weights for workouts you CAN use free weights on
    Intensity: Be at failure at 11th or 10th rep, the worst thing you can do is go home and not even feel like you worked out, were are the gains in that?
    Routine: Make sure you have a good routine WBB2 is near perfect, work ever muscle no madder how unimportant
    Safe: be "spotsafe" like on straight bar bench have a spotter or dont power lift AT ALL

    Little hints:
    -Alot of working the back is getting a really good stretch with the weight at the end of every rep, relax for a second and let the weight pull your back muscles, then contract again.
    -If you sacrifice range of movement for weight youll be flabby for the rest of your life
    -eat alot after you workout, only eat quality foods, make sure you get alot of proteins from many different foods
    - vitamins and minerals are a MUST, just as valuable as alot of protein
    -With intensity, work up you anger before every set and unleash it in every rep.
    -what seperates you from the massive guy in the gym isnt steroids or genetics, its the fact that he wants it more than anything in the world, and is willing to to go the highest level of intensity.
    -Dont stress dont loose hope, if your not getting gains then your not having enough intensity or food, so massively increase both.
    -Get plenty of fruit and yogurt an hour before a workout.
    -eat immediatly after a workout.
    -and dont get dysmophophobia if your abs are misaligned
    -do 8 to 10 reps of everything, be at failure at 11 or 10



    damn this is long

    A bunch of your lifts seem a little suspicious for a 15 year old who is 8 feet tall, but good work doing whatever you are.

    I can do a 120 lbs dumbell in each hand. not 240 in one hand... its not that much, i see alot of guys doin the 150's 10 or 11 times, 1 time all the way up, too easy. im not strong lol my bench is 200 lbs, i just do an equal amount of each exercise, some guys do a squats and bench and thats it. i make sure to improve persistantly on every lift. 225 for DL isnt good, i see people do twice that

    I believe you can deadlift 225, I gave you tuttut because deadlifts are not for toning. In fact IMO, no lifts should be used for toning. Use Body By Jake or the Abdominizer 9000 for stuff like that.

    The only way to really "tone" is by eating right. You can't do a lift just to "tone".

    I see a problem with the diet. According to your calculations of protein, carb, and fat intake you are only consuming 1650 calories a day. I'd say up it to at least 2000 (mostly in the form of protein since your protein is pretty low, also up either the fat and carbs just a little, you need one of those for energy.

    Well, your keys and hints are way off, they sound like you read too many flex's, and for your health, I would stop doing 20 grams of creatine a day. If you're rowing, not hoisting, 120lb dumbbells for sets of 10 with good form -- congrats! That rocks!
