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?

    1 week of FitDay and results. What should change.

    http://fitday.com/WebFit/PublicJourn...l?Owner=zonify

    Im 250 pounds when I started this diet. Down to maybe 241 after a week, may be a lot of water weight. Dunno.

    I did Back and Legs on Monday
    Shoulders, abs, and arms on wednesday
    Biceps and triceps on Friday.

    Im still sore as **** from friday. Maybe 1- 1.5 hrs each workout day and on non workout days maybe 10 mins of HIIT.

    Uhm.... Taking Complex B, one a day multi, 2-3 whey scoops a day, and fish/borax oil daily.

    How am I doing so far, what should i change, etc.

    Ugh forgot to mention... I am 5'10. Mostly fat. I'd say 150 lb LBM or so. So im very fat.

    WEll on most days its seems like you have too low of fat and protein and calories in general.


    Someone at your size should be eating at least 2500 cals and still lose good amount of weight.

    I would also change your lifting split. Check out Built and her signature for Baby Got Back or Check out WBB1 or check out Paul Staggs signature.

    how can i get more calories in me, im eating 6 meals a day and am quite full at the end of the day.

    Whats an easy way to just get calories quick.

    Also what i posted for my split was wrong.

    Day 1 - Chest and Back

    Day 3 - Legs and Shoulders

    Day 5 - Biceps and Triceps

    Is that ok?
    BTW im still sore as hell from my bicep/tricep workout last friday.

    To get fat: Eat nuts (cashews,walnuts,almonds,peanuts,macedamia), add oil to your shakes (olive oil), throw sesame oil on salads, eat avocados, natural peanut butter,and of course you should already be taking Fish Oil daily.

    Basically, check oout the sticky that says "What a bodybuilder eats"

    I would still switch your lifting split to this:

    Squat
    Stiff Leg Deadlift
    Pull Up (Chin)
    Row
    Bench Press
    Overhead press

    Do this 3x a week. At the end of each day, you can pick some exercises you would like to do, such as:
    Day 1: Biceps and Triceps
    Day 2: Calves and Leg Extensions
    Day 3: Flys and Lat Pulldowns

    Those are jsut examples and not anything written in stone. As far as rep ranges, Day 1 and 3 do 3-6 sets at 3-5 reps, on Day 2, do 3-5 reps at 6-10 reps.

    Hopefully/maybe Paul Stagg can chime in and clear up anything.

    I wish id get more help. -_-
    Ive read so many articles but theres still questions to be answered.

    I measured my BF today. Im not sure how accurate the machine is. But it had me at

    244 lbs
    31.3 % BF.
    PS. I reran my BF on a diff scale and it had me at 244 lbs and 40% BF.
    So im between 146 lbs LBm and 168 lbs. Gosh this is rediculous. If i hadda guess id go with the 40% as more accurate.

    I have just eaten a meal and drank 2 lbs of water. Ill redo a measure tomorrow morning.

    but that right there puts me at 168 lbs LBM. I Doubt I have that much lbm. I really think the measure was off. I mean if so that means at 12% BF id weigh 188 lbs. Maybe so. If thats the case I have less weight to lose than expected.

    But i doubt its the case. My bench is weak but I use to be able to squat, deadlift the **** out of stuff.
