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?

    Damit! already starting to lose strenght from stoping the Cell Tech Ive been upping my calories in hopes to keep the strenght and weight gains i had with it. I think i might start again in one week and a half- two weeks.
    Trained Chest and shoulders today... Bench was 245x2! i did 4 last week damit! need creatine!
    Doing shoulders after chest is pretty damn hard cause the shoulders and triceps are already tired. I going up in reps on shoulder press each week on this routine though (3rd week on the routine), im only doing the 60's on shoulder press but my reps are going up each week.. did 7 this week. ( im doing, for shoulders: db press, side laterals, shrugs, clean 'n press.)... ( for chest i only did bench and flys (40's db's)

    Im gonna reach that damn 190lbs by june first no mather what!!

    Bulking is going ok although ive lost five pounds in the last 4 days, i slacked eating, i find my body responds better when i bulk for like a week-week and a half, then slow down a little bit for a couple of days, i think it slows down my metabolism again, so i gain more once i start eating again. before slowing down, i reached a peek of 192 lbs, already pas tmy goal of 190 for june first , im now 187, starting to eat again tomorow, should be around 193-194 by sunday.

    Today was leg day. It was not bad, although im stuck at the same squat weight for a month, ah well, can't always add weight i guess.

    Squats:
    warm up ( barx12, 135x10, 225x9)
    275x8
    335x3
    leg extension: 100x12
    squat: 225x12

    leg curls:
    warm up (40x12)
    70x8
    85x5

    Standing calf raises
    warm up (bwx12)
    on smith machine ( 1-45'sx12)
    2-45's x 8
    2-45's+25's x 5

    Might as well wright this in here too: I'm starting to seriously think about using gear, i was going to wait t'ill i am 22 , in two years but.... someone made me realize... why? I couldn't really answer anything intelligent ... like .. i want to get to know my body, i want to learn how to train properly, etc. so im starting to wonder if now is not the time. So im starting to educate myself on the subject, and depending on the time i have to invest in studying, i might start in 3-6 months.
    I think it would be a godd time, ive done good progress since I started, 3 1/2 years ago, i was 124@5'6''@apx 10 % bf, im now 190 ( apx ) @ 5'7'' @ apx 18% bf.
    Ive studied nutrition pretty much, i consider my self pretty knowlegeble in nutrition, supplementation and training science.
    After a while being natural is very hard, recuparating takes longer, cause oyu have to lift heavier and heavier, so you have to eat more to cut recuparation time, but theres a limit in eating. I feel gear would be a nice tool to help me recuperate

    Im taking a week off, wrist starts to hurt again, biceps is ****ed up, i think theres something wrong with the insertion. I need a break, been training heavy for too long now, its starting to have negative effects.

    Im 190, will try and set goals and plan this week. Im going to stay at 190 for this week.

    Strenght is starting to g down, so its time for a break.

    My fix of taking steroids is over, i'll stick to my original plan. I would like to compete once natural before going on the juice, if i see that i look good enough.

    WEll, im back after a much needed break. Diet wasn't really good latelly.. i droped 5 pounds.. im 185 now.
    Im trying to go higher reps for a while now... its friggin though.. i feel like im gonna puke all the time and i have zero enery..im dead after the first exercise. Im gonna up my training days as well.. to 4-5 days a week.

    overall..its not going too well... but hopefully i'll get used again to higher reps and more frequent training. I feel that my body has got too used to just trainng 3 days a week and takes too long to recuperate. Also it seems that its just used to push hard for 2-5 reps then stop. higher reps will also serve as a little cardio.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
