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?

    Fight Fire With Fire

    Well I guess I'm gonna keep a journal of my progress. I'll start with my current stats and goals. This is a 6 month goal so it's should be no problem.

    Age: 21

    Height: 6'1

    Weight: 248

    Haven't figured my body fat yet

    Bench: 335

    Squat: 475

    Cleans: 295

    Deadlift: 460

    My Goals Are:

    Weight: 215

    Bench: 375

    Squat: 500

    Cleans: 335

    Deadlift: 500

    My diet's gonna consist of a lot of protein with good fats and good carbs. All my carbs will come during breakfast and lunch but none at night. I work with the fire dept so my training split will be 2 days on and 1 off. Lots of compound lifts.

    So I had to work yesterday so no lifting. I got to work and checked off my rig. We then did PT. I ran 3 miles and then went through a firefighter challenge type course 3 times. So it was a good 45 minutes of fairly high-intensity cardio. I had a protein shake for breakfast, a turkey and chicken on wheat sandwhich about 10:00am and another around 3:00. I then had 2 pieces of pizza(gotta eat supper with the company) and another shake around 9:00pm.

    I lifted yesterday and today. I had a much more intense workout both days than I've had since i started back. Brought back memories of football training. I don't think i've got my split entirely worked out yet but as of right now it's going something like this. Remember my goals are solely for strength and weight loss.

    Day 1:
    Bench
    Cleans
    DB Bench
    DB Shoulder Press
    DB Incline Bench
    Machine Shoulder Press
    Dumbell Lateral Raises
    DB Shrugs
    Skull Crushers
    Hammer Curls
    Rope Pushdown
    Preacher Curls
    Burnout on Machine Bench Press
    Abs: (weighted cruches, weighted torso twists)
    Cardio: 1-2 miles jogging

    Day 2:
    Squats
    Dead Lift
    Leg Press
    Lat Pulldowns
    Machine Rows
    Db Lunges
    Leg Extensions
    Hamstring Curls
    Calf Raises
    Abs: (weighted crunches, weighted torso twists)

    Day 3:
    Cardio (2-3 miles jogging, firefighter challenge course)

    Day 4:
    Same as Day 1

    Day 5:
    Same as Day 2

    You're one strong dude. Welcome to the boards.

    Do you do ALL of that stuff on "Day 1" or is that a list you pick and choose from?

    I usually do all the compund stuff and then pick from the concentration stuff. But if I get in there and just feel like suffering then I'll do it all. Most importantly I do it all high intensity. Not much rest time. Keeps me from having to do so much cardio.
