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?

    workout today wasn't too bad, hit hammies good with some GHR and bench was decent. this week is sposed to be a deload/light week so im taking it easy.

    bench : 135x5, 135x5, 185x3, 225x5 flew up, 235x5, 240x5

    GHR : x18

    CG bench : 185x5, 190x5, 195x5 these flew up i was surprised

    GHR : x16, x14... the x16 was actually in the middle of my close grip session, then finished workout with the x14. hammies were fried!!

    team : DB lunges. light but worked legs pretty decent. with luhring so slow and explosive.

    plyos felt good, ran outside and did some sprints on grass w/ gym shoes haha. did 1 and 5 yard sprints, won a generous amount of them but our all-state dback beat me on a few too.

    186 today........... seriously idk whats up with my weight lol. i guess i wont really worry about it. if i keep eating ~3500+ a day and getting stronger, size is inevitable i suppose.

    alright, here's some more art... i'll try to go in order of date, latest made to earliest made. they obviously go best to worst, too, haha.

    DUKE -most badass
    Cat in the Hat! -most professional, i beleive
    -SLASH- -i think this is one of the more realistic ones, i really gave this one my all!
    Jango Fett -i tried. i think the depth and 3d stuff with the gun and extended leg is decent.
    Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila -i also tried on this one. its not the best but i had never drawn a football player.
    Mustang Transition -i think the symmetry is good in this. the car may be a bit wide, but i think its a pretty cool picture.
    King Arthas Menethil -by a litte bit, this is the hardest peice i have ever done. also i think it's one of the best i have ever done.
    Lord Maul -haha, i don't color often, especially with pencils, so this turned out interesting.
    Starcraft Terran Marine -i could of done alot better on this. i should of taken more time... the marine shape and detail is good, but horiffic shading. i may redo this later.
    Druid -this wasnt bad... at the time. started to get a little better with shading at this point.
    Orc Grunt -not sure how i pulled this off, but it turned out alright for the time. if i could redo it with proper shading i think it'd be a lot nicer.
    Spirits -first picture i've really ever took time on and it started my [more serious] journey as an artist!

    Also, here is some stain glass and etching i did last year in school...
    Bulls Stain
    Bulls Etch
    UnderArmour Etch
    Superman Stain

    Alright, that's pretty much all of it! if you guys would like to leave me any comments about anything, positive or negative, i would appreciate it! thanks everyone

    Good workout, amazing artwork! I wish I could draw stuff like that. I always liked drawing as a kid, it was really terrible, but I enjoyed it. I suppose if it was as good as yours I probably would have continued with it. Also, love the starcraft and warcraft ones haha.

    Awesome workout, man.

    I'd have to say the Terran is my fav, though I like all of the etchings. I'm a graphic design major myself. So I've got a few Photoshop projects up over at Deviant Art. Check 'em out:

    THose are some strong benches. Have to wonder if 240 x 5 would equal a bigger PR than 285?

    i like the mustang transformation idea. that was cool, but i'd have to say the king artheus mahicila or whatever was probably the best

    Well they are all good I just related to the blizzard ones haha. Ive played wayyyy too many of their games. D2, SC, WCII, WCIII, WoW... all the expansions... Yeahhh haha. As far as ideas I dunno man. It looks like you have plenty!

    I used to do web design thats actually what my first major in college was for so I did stuff more along the lines of what Jaybird linked. Never could freehand but for some reason photoshop made stuff so easyyyyy.

    bako - thanks alot dude yeah slash is alot of peoples favorites!

    coke - thanks bro!

    keith - another tally for slash thanks alot man, it means alot. i use fitday, so i think that'd count as tracking.

    jay - thats interesting about the terran. i think it could be soooo much better, but i think the proportions and details and stuff were good yes. i may redo it yeah. i looked at ur stuff on deviant art and that's sweet!! you use mainly photoshop or gimp or what? you work for a company or anything? i've never been good at photoshop even tho im a nerd, but if i could learn it it'd be awesome.

    mick - thanks man. i dont think 240x5 is bigger then 285, because i did 250x5 and squeezed out just enough for 285 max. but ya never know right?

    lion - cool, thanks!! yeah i thought of the mustang thing and since i got my own '68 and i love mustangs i figger'd id give it a try. arthas was hella hard, too. i may make another one of him.

    pulse - thats sweet dude. i LOVE blizzard! do you play any of their games now?? thatd be tight! weird you cant freehand but are good at photoshop. im complete opposite.

    also, i do have to mention : alot of my work is not made up off the top of my head. i do use pictures to reference, and alot of my pictures are from a picture very similar to it. somtimes if you look at it, you would think i traced it. but in the art world this is called 'copying', taking an image and recreating it, but freehand and in your own way. this i beleive is a hard stage for me, because using no reference for anything i want to create is very tough. but my sister is also extremely talented, and she is helping me with ways to extend past this point to create my very OWN masterpeices. hope this didn't disappoint any of you very much!

    damn nice workout bro! good stuff on the squatting. everythings looking solid.

    i would only weigh once a week. dont eat after 9 the night before. take a piss and **** if possible right before you weigh. weigh first thing in the morning. take that weight, and try to up it by whatever you want each week. thats usually a pretty good judge. i say this, but i weigh myself everyday about twice a day. but then again, i'm not emotionally attached to my weight..much

    Im just like lion except I do mine every few days. Hop in the bathroom do my business and jump on the scale. I probably weigh a good 5lbs more in the afternoon depending on what I eat or drink so I dont even look at it because it gets my hopes up haha. I still play WoW sadly. I just reactivated last week to level a character to 70 with a buddy. Only playing when we both have time.

    You and me both need to quit worrying about the scale cause apparently its not a good reference for strength... all the time.

    Oh also - I knew you had the 315 in ya so I wont act suprised. GJ!

    okay thanks pulsey well if i had a real scale at home i'd do what u guys do with the poopin stuff, but mine isnt very good... man what server u play on? i get mine free. i sold my acct ages ago with a level 70 to a friend, then that friend sold it to another of my friends, and that kid lets me play whenever he's not. its great because he gets off at like 9 every night so i get a solid amount of time considering its free. i'm on maelstrom with a 59 human warrior Jedo. my war before was also Jedo on maelstrom, a 70 war. gimmie ur info and maybe we can hook up sometime ingame!

    thanks about the 315 comment
