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?

    alright baby... first official freedom workout. i have no obligations to any sports anymore. i can lift whatever i want. just trying to get back into the feel of things these next few workouts. got gassed real easy today, but it felt incredible. man ive missed this!!

    bench : 135x20, 135x15

    DB bench flys : 20 3x10

    DB CURLS : 30 3x10 - FIRST TIME IN OVER A YEAR I'VE DONE THEM WITHOUT SOMEONE TELLING ME. thats gotta be a record of some sort...

    DB OH tricep extension : 60 3x10

    handstand pushups : fail... too fatigued haha.

    pushups : x3... lol.

    weighed in at 181, with shirt/sweatpants and tennies on.

    my wrist hurts bad, and my thumb dislocates itself sometimes from it's socket and i have to shove it back in. should i go to the doc for this or do you think my ligaments are just loose from whailing on it all fb season? (when it comes out it hurts liek a mofo)

    anyways... whooo! time ta get back to business.

    the bike is super, but sadly it's been 30 and raining/snowing for the past week here. my last ride was probably somehwere near the first of october, then it was either 40+ mph winds, or 45-50 degrees. i cant wait to ride it again though, i love that thing! how is yours? is there even winter in NM?

    Does it snow in NM?


    Yea...if you get too far south it does not happen much, but I live (mostly) in northern NM.

    As far as the bike, I went for a good long ride two weekends ago..this weekend I didnt make much time for it. I need to get some riding pants or some thing to keep my fat legs warm. I finally scored a jacket off a friend...a red fieldsheer textile...its not too fancy but it works...sorta glad I didnt end up getting that dainese leather jacket...it woulda been like $750+ and I would have felt like a douche.

    wow! it sure does snow haha. i think im lookin at pants next too. if i was built out of money id get a full leather suit with gloves and boots so i could ride seasonally... maybe someday! no problem with scoring a cheap jacket off a buddy. i dont really see need for going out of the way to get fancy gear unless you can afford it or your very experienced and riding track.

    not much volume today, but first time doin deads for a while..

    deadlift : 135x5, 225x5, 235x5, 245x5, 255x5, 265x5... thought that was solid.

    BB bent rows : 95x5, 100x5, 105x5

    thought the deads were solid, and 5x5 is pretty draining. did full rows.

    178.3 naked today.

    mines well let u all know that i got another job to add to the store. this ones more manual which i like. working at a tire shop. it's pretty much 2-5 hours of solid tire moving, throwing, cleaning, prying, etc. it's pretty physical and i would count it as a workout in itself! employer is awesome, too. when we're not workin we just sit around and talk about stuff.

    Wicked dude! Sounds kinda like my job. I am a delivery driver for a fitness equipment store. My day consists of moving 300lb treadmills, weight stacks, benches, and stupid machines. It's definitely a workout.

    bench : 135x5, 155x5, 175x5, 185 2x5 wrist killed..

    BB mili press : 95 3x8

    BB shrug : 185 3x10

    arnold presses : 40 2x8, x6

    jump rope : 2x30 sec lol, i tried..

    weighed @ 182, not bad.

    went 2 doc 2day for my wrist... he thinks it might be a small tear in my ligament if anything. xrays were clear. says to be careful if i lift, and if it gets worse to get an MRI.
