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?

    whoa whoa whoa, there is some confusion! i highly suggest eating after nine to put on weight! i do it every night. i'm just saying the one night before you lift, dont eat after 9 pm in order to gather a more accurate picture of what you weigh

    Damn, dude, the artwork looks really good. I thought the pic of Slash was pretty damn good and the Mustang Transition was probably the most creative. Good stuff, bro. Keep at it.

    Super congrats on the 3pps squat! That's a huge milestone for sure. You're definitely doing something right. For sure only weigh yourself one, maybe two times each week. Don't obsess over it, man. Always weigh first thing in the morning too, no food, no water, no clothes. It's the most consistent and accurate, IMO.

    I can't believe you all are hooked on WoW, lol. I never started playing that game because I'm a recovering gameaholic. My wife would have left me if I started playing WoW, hah!

    thanks coke and lion.

    kiaran - thanks man. well the problem is i cant ever get to the weightroom until after school, uness i wanna wake up at 5:30 am and come lift in the morning, which i dont think weighing myself is worth THAT much. my weighing is consistent tho cuz i always weigh myself before my workout, and my workout is pretty damn close to the same time every day. oh yeah im definately hooked on wow... i tried to quit when i sold, but when my friend offered free playing time i couldnt resist.

    incline : 155x5, 165x5, 165x5

    front lat cable pulldowns : 150x6, 160x6, 170x6... havent done those forever!!

    Man you dont even want to get me started with wow. Ive played since molten core was endgame and no1 was in blackwing lair yet. I have 70s on dark iron, thunderlord, arthas, and gorefiend. Everyone but the dark iron is horde. For as many level 70s as I have I really dont play much. Infact I havent played in a few months. My new guy is on darrowmere right now and 33. Its funny when people know I play because I do all this stuff that isnt nerdy and I play wow.

    Nice work man. Hittin PRs on some level each week! Good work on gaining weight slowly, so to minimize the fat gains. Your pulldowns really explain why your back looks so strong. Strong overall man!

    short workout today, had to hunt for a while to find a key but me and a few guys got in. did some deadlift and hit a new PR for 10 lb.

    deadlift : stretch, 135x5, 225x3, 245x1, 265x1, 295x1, 315x1, 365x1, 385x1 slowly but surely and firmly i got this up. my initial pull is lacking but once i get it past about 6 inches i am good to go. form was solid throughout.

    temped to weigh, but didnt.

    have ACT's saturday mornin so wish me luck. i stayed at rachaels till 11 when i shouldnt even have done anything but i'd rather be with her. she is amazing. wish me luck!

    thanks pulse i got thru them, the only part i was confident on was the grammar part, where you correct words or restate parts of paragraphs. i am almost sure i got at least 65-70 out of 75 on that. other than that, on the reading, graph-interpreting ("science"), and mathematics, i think i may have gotten 6-8 correct out of 40 on each of those... sadly. oh well.

    thanks coke much appreciated.

    mick - thanks man. we hung out all day today, went to town at 3 and came back at 10. got some flowery things we wear for prom, messed around in the mall n stuff, and went to a movie. dont ask me why we arent going out. blew it on ACT's, read above i'm hoping for 405 by end of summer. 20 lb isnt that much to ask but seeing as i can rarely get around to DLing i think that's a decent goal.

    Wow, dude! Everytime I step into this journal you've made a new milestone. 240 on your power clean? That's a ****ing load right there, man. Total bad-ass right there, bro. I don't think I could even power clean 165, lol.

    Ace on the 385 for the DL as well. You are definitely growing, whether your weight is reflecting it or not, man. All your lifts are coming up like crazy. Keep doing whatever it is you're doing. You got a goal date set up for the big 4pps? I think it's closer than you may think. Hope the ACTs went well.

    Eh your only 16 you have plenty more chances to take the act again. Around here you only need like an 18 to get into most school anyways I think and thats pretty easy to obtain. I think I got 26 or 27? This is the one out of 36 right?

    Oh and whats this talk about a girl? You big pimpin' now? haha

    thanks keith and lion

    pulse - yeah this one is out of like 36 or somethin i think. i got a 22 on a total out-of-my-ass practice test freshman year so i dont know. yeah man rachaels her name we used to date a few months ago from june-november then we broke up. we are best friends now. i love her and she loves me and we'd die for each other and have great times. i dont really know why we're not going out but i think it might just be a stage for her that she doesnt want a serious relationship and i hope she grows out of it soon. but shes amazing and all of her flaws are perfect to me. i have a good feeling about us, personally.
