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?

    First time ever doing good mornings so cut me a break on the weight. Only about the fifth time doing deads...slowly making progress. I tried to go for 325 on the deads but couldnt quite lock it, settled for 320.

    I think I am going to do some legs tomorrow instead of Saturday after work tomorrow. I get off around 8:30 and I can just walk right down to the gym, its usually empty by that time anyway.

    New Squat PR!!! The reason I had to do it 3 times was I didnt go low enough on the first two and all I heard from my buddies was "cough...pussy...lower...cough". Finally on my third try I went low enough.

    Finally caught one of my buddies at the gym to give me a spot for the bench press and got my 275 baby. Went for 280 but I got the bar about 4 inches off my chest and didnt have the energy. Check my weight today and I am in at 174!!! Sweet deal there...

    I am thinking of trying dead presses tomorrow in addition to my shoulders. I really want to try them and I kinda cant wait till tuesday. btw, anyone who reads this know what the benefit is of doing them static. Lifting it off and then holding it for a count?

    I tried out those static dead presses which were cool. Then I got my form down for the power cleans (thank you youtube). After that I went to my shoulder workout.

    Hi mate, probably being ******ed here but what do you mean by static dead bench?

    I hope to be able to hit 180 by the end of this week. I weighed in at around 178 today. I am making gains like crazy since I stopped heavy cardio. It also helps that I eat everything in sight. I plan on doing some before and after pics soon just to see if the muscle I have put on is noticeable.

    Oh yeah the reason those front squats are so weak is because some ******* in the gym decided to take the one squat rack for BICEPT CURLS. yes, he was being that guy. I set a new power clean record though lol...135. (Hadda clean the weight to get setup for front squats.)
