The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Ooooooook...diet destroyed. Left at 205. Returned at 212. Would have been worse but I sweated a lot..lol been home since Sunday and already back to 205.

    I am officially married now and a father of two great girls. Life is good. Honeymoon cruise in 2 weeks.

    First WOD since the 24th I think.

    10min AMRAP of..
    30 double unders
    15 floor to overhead @ 75lbs

    This was the first open competition WOD, but MUCH hotter in the gym this time. Got 4 rounds plus 5 double unders. That is 5 DU's better than back during the competition so..lol..it's improvement.

    Still..60 power snatch (or whatever FTO you choose) and 125 DU's in 10min is still pretty decent.

    Diet is very clean the last few days. Might see if I can hit 202 before the cruise.

    Thanks. It was 115 seconds in total. I did 60 seconds straight, then 30,15,10. That 60 right off the bat was a big surprise though. I wish I could see the seemingly very strong abs I have..lol

    Working 16 hours today and 8 tomorrow. No WOD. maybe a "fix the lawnmower" WOD tomorrow..lol. Diet is still strict.

    Didn't get to the mowers. The heat index was 100 degrees the last couple days then yesterday we had an apocalyptic storm. Oh well. Maybe tomorrow..

    WOD

    400m run
    20 ring dips
    20 med ball cleans
    20 burpees
    200m run
    30 situps
    30 pullups
    30 squats
    400m run

    14:41. Brutal workout. That last quarter mile just about sent me to see Mr. Puke. Ring dips really slowed me down. I finished second to last but other than me only the guy who finished first was doing it without assistance on at least one movement so I feel pretty good about my time. I'm hurting all over though..lol

    Thanks for the support..lol

    I have to adjust a workout a few times a month so i have no superior feeling to anyone who does the same. The workouts hurt them just as much as me just like when I workout with the advanced people. Hell, my last 5 dips were pretty sketchy. I probably should have used an assistance band..lol

    IMO, it's more about giving yourself credit than it is about taking anything away from others

    Lol..true. Ooooook..."I'm sooooo awesome at xfit!!!"

    How's that??


    WOD (I was bad sore and now miserably sore)

    7 Rounds

    7 Full Snatch @ 95lbs
    30 kb swings (1.5 pood)
    30 sit-ups

    Had a 40 minute cap. I got capped..lol

    Got through 5 full rounds, snatches, swings. And 3 sit-ups of round 6.

    This workout was he'll. Rx weight was 155, then lowered to 135, and I went with 95..lol. My snatch form is improving but I still dropped 1 for every one I got. Exhaustion and previous soreness had a lot to do with it.

    This was just an awful, awful workout. I am spent, even 4 hours later. I wanna go home and nap till dinner.

    Awful equates to extreme intensity in this case, that's the real deal, lol.

    At-home WOD.

    6 rounds

    1/5 mile run
    25 du's

    18:07

    Same road WOD I did at the beach a couple weeks ago. My guess was 15min back then but it was probably more and my neighborhood has 1/3 of the run uphill, so... Im happy with it. I also got all my DU's unbroken with the exception of one missed rep. Considering I was wearing shoes (never do on rope unless I have no choice) that surprises me. Hopefully that means I've got a new PR set on the horizon.

    Diet has been pretty strict. Weight isn't really moving though but I don't have food guilt as long as it is n going up..lol

    Monday WOD

    back squat 5x5x5x5x5

    Ended up at 225 x 5. Most I've done for 5 reps in the last few years. Happy with it, considering I haven't back squatted in 3 months..lol. It's funny how all the other stuff translates over like that.

    After that, did 25 around the worlds. And 2 sled drags.Abs are killing me.


    Today's WOD..

    "Grace"

    30 floor to overhead @ 135lbs

    6:11

    Better than I expected. I really didn't push too hard anyway. Just wanted clean reps.

    Ran 4x800m then did some strict press

    when you do Grace is it a snatch or a clean and jerk?

    Very nice on the back squatting. Good Grace time. We've got a couple of guys that can do it ~1:20. Freaks.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Dang..1:20. That's LEGIT. Head coach did it in 1:55 last time. Not sure if we have better there or not.


    It was listed as a power clean and jerk on our website but we were told to basically go floor to overhead. I didn't have a choice other than push jerking it though. That's not a weight I can power snatch more than a couple times..lol
