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?

    Dang Bako you were right somehow, you predicted the snowstorm and no weights today!! Thanks for the comment Coke Snowed about 3 inches today so school got out early and weights and stuff was cancelled. Whipped a bunch of donuts and fun stuff in the parking lot and streets, about 3 people got pulled over after school for drivin bad. :P

    Great workout today, hit new single set PR for pullups, and had the hardest squat session of my life.

    Pullups : 1x20, 1x15, 1x7

    Squat : 155x20 , was complete torture... got through it though.

    Bent Over BB Row : 115 3x10

    Team Workout : SS 30 sec useless DB lunges to 30 sec crunches, 3 sets no rest.

    Haha thanks Coke!! Yeah, the pullups were hard, and I was pretty tired afterwards, but the squats were total murder! I felt like passing out afterwards... you shudda seen me sittin on the bench resting afterwards, my mouth was just hanging open and I was staring at nothing! It was probably a sight.

    calf raise : 3x50

    bb mili press : 115 3x8

    thanks you 3, the positive motivation helps, specailly when i feel like that workout was totally useless! workout today was pretty nice feeling to counter yesterdays crappy one, though. cleaned for the first time in a LOOONG time.

    power clean : 135x5, 135x3, 155x3, 175x3, 185x3, 195x1, 205x1... glad i got 205 , happy 2 get that since i haven't cleaned heavy in an age.

    squat : 160x20, felt absolutely dead DURING the process, recouped better than last time though. whole forearms and hands were numb after rep 15... how great!

    single arm DB curls : 35 3x10... got some compliments on my shoulder veins haha.

    team workout : did about 6 sets of 30-40 sec crunches total, a set of 2 min wall sits weighted, then some medicine ball pushups... a big mess, but abs were sore after crunches i suppose.

    thanks coke.

    decent workout today, naturally felt like slacking because it was friday and we never lift on fridays, but i tried to keep the tempo up to par.

    calf raise : 2x35... had to stop, calves were cramping up all the way from last time.

    bench : 135x5, 155x3, 185x5, 190x5, 195x5, 225x3

    dips : 3x10

    team workout : 30 sec L's/planks to 30 sec rest to 30 sec pushup to 30 rest. 3 sets.

    weighed 177 today, most i've weighed in about 3 months.

    Make sure to get a couple of extra protein shakes in each day, you ain't near done growing yet which is super.

    pullups : 1x20, 1x16, 1x14

    strict calf raises : 3 x ~40

    squat : 20x165 wow that was insane! not to mention i did 135x5 and 175x5 before that! last 2 reps were absolutely insane!

    team workout : SS 30 sec calf raises with 30 sec crunches, no rest 3 sets.

    if anyone notices anything about my workouts that i'm missing or not including or working on enough, please tell me! i need ta get the best i can be!

    Thanks for that Coke, that means alot. Bako, thanks for that bro... if your talking looks themselves, i'd say okay, cept my broken fib (left) calf is still substantially smaller then the right, atleast in my view. Strength-wise, they are looking pretty good I think. 165x20 was by far the hardest squat set I've done in my life (pathetic as it may sound), and tomorrow will be even harder, but I'm ready for the challenge.

    Well I'm glad to say I had a hell of a workout today, including my best bench workout I've done in a while, and a new exercize for me.

    Bench : 135x5, 155x3, 185x5 nailed, 195x5 nailed, 205x5 nailed, 215x5... might of had 2 or 3 more 215's left in me but I didn't want to burn out for rest of session.

    DB Overhead Tri Ext : 55lb 3x12

    Supersets : BB Shrug to Mili Press to about 1.5 min rest.
    BB Shrug : 175x8 175x8 175x8
    Mili Press : 115x8 115x8 115x7 (fail)

    -new for me- i'll just call it 'barbell grip/forearm work', picked up 175 lb BB and held it in hands and let it hang until fatigue (till my fingers died and bar dropped). Fingers and Forearms were absolutely dead after this, it was great!

    BB Forearm/Grip (seconds)- 175lb x15, x10, x8

    Team Workout : 30 sec Bench Dips -> 10 sec rest -> 30 sec L's -> 10 sec rest. 4 sets.
    Dips : weightless, 25lb, 25lb, weightless
    L's: normal, normal, normal, normal

    I'll be honest and say that was one hell of a workout today! I haven't had a workout this in a long time. Actually felt good about myself.

    nice benching and good work on the 20 rep squats. I have yet to try those, but I'm pretty sure I'd toss my cookies...

    awesome work on the 20 rep squats. I'll be throwing those into my routine soon.

    Strong millies too. 115 isn't anything to shrug at.

    As for advice, the only I'd say is write down your stats, increase the weights each week and eat enough to grow. You're recooping real good here. Also, maybe you could write down how long you hold the bb grips before you fail, so you have a goal to shoot for?

    Thanks so much coke, that means a ton.
    Red, thanks for stopping in bro, the 20 rep squats are a real treat. If you have any questions ask me, I got the book at home.
    Mick, thanks for the props and advice. What do you mean by 'write down your stats'? And I edited the BB grip now, thanks

    Workout today was decent, I think 170x20 is the most I've ever done on the 20 rep program, so that's a new PR I suppose. It actually wasn't as hard as I anticipated, even after some full cleans.

    Full Clean : 135x5, 135x3, 155x1 then got a huge kink in my hand, couldn't even normal clean either, had to stop for the day Shame, they were feeling great.

    Squat : 170x20, yeeeehaw what an adventure. Once I get to 185 I'm gonna crap my pants! (hell maybe even literally!) note : lower back was toast; not pain but muscular.

    DB Curl : 40lb 3x10 maybe a little cheat last set last few reps.

    Glute Ham Raise : x8, x6, x6

    Team Workout : 30 sec crunches -> 10 sec rest -> 30 sec DB 7-21's -> 10 sec rest. 3 sets.
    DB 7-21's : 20lb, 20lb, 20lb
    Crunches : normal, normal, normal
