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?

    SuprSmall - Yup, each arm

    Fuzz - Thanks dude, double body weight would be awesome.

    Kiaran - Lol, I know, this bench thing is starting to get freaky, I didn't think it was possible to make these gains without roids. I'm going all out legs once I get 275, lol. You can catch up then.

    LiftingKid - Lol, is it really that hardcore? I'll make sure I'm careful.

    i NEVER feel like doing shoulder presses, much prefer milies. nice workout though.

    you should try you weighted dips with a belt & chain, gives you a direct addition to normal Bw & keeps same dip motion.

    I checked out that Smolov, that looks downright nasty... cant wait to do it.

    How much experience do you have? Your damn strong... I have over 60 pounds on you and your bench craps all over mine.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Brute - Thanks man

    Freak - I'm gonna try to put together some kind of belt to hook plates onto. It's gonna be ghetto though, lol.

    Fuzz - About 3 years off and on of experience. I can't wait to start the squat cycle either.

    Lol, I don't trust the scale anymore. It's one of these -


    The top little slider goes from 1-50. The bottom one goes 50, 100, 150, etc.
    Well if the top slider is on 50, and the bottom is at 100, then it says I way 150 and a little more but there are no numbers left to see.

    If the bottom one is at 150, and the top one at 0, I don't weigh enough to make the thing go up.

    I'll just say I'm about 1 lb heavier than my last weigh in, but I'm not sure on the actual weight.

    Thoughts:
    Finally pulled 3 plates, it wasn't extremely hard so I jumped up 20 lbs and it didn't even budge. I took off 10 lbs, but I only got it like half an inch off the floor. Oh well, that gives me room for improvement next week. No morning workout because I ditched P.E., lol, I got to school a little late and they were already in the weigh room lifting, so I just went back to my car till 2nd period.

    Thoughts:
    Alright day, didn't feel very strong cuz I hadn't eaten anything all day. I attempted to use my belt to hook plates onto but it didn't work. Then I tried to tie 25s to each end of a jump rope and put it around my shoulders but that didn't work either. So I ended up just putting my legs in like an L shape, and held a 45 on the back of my calves. It didn't work very well either... oh well. Oh ya, and on a side note - I wrecked my freakin' car today . Not a bad wreck, this giant truck that was raised up like a million feet side swiped me. It left a bunch of tire crap on the side of my car, and a little scratch from the rim. Damn.

    20 reppers are ass kickers, strong work all around. Stout numbers for your wt for sure.

    Thoughts:
    I finally found another power lifter that goes to my gym! I didn't talk to him though, I'm not even sure if he's really a powerlifter. He was squatting 400+ and then he was doing SLDLs, then he was doing leg curls, lol, what a coincidence.

    On a side note: I told my training partner he should join WBB, so he should be starting a journal soon, he's just starting out.
