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?

    I vow to pull over 530.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Guido:
    Welcome to my journal. Based on your stats, you'd have no problem beating my 365 so I say go for it. After all, deads are intended to be maxed!


    Ryuage:
    Sounds like a plan...but if I fail you better.


    Josh:
    Seeing a 405 pull shouldn't be an issue, seeing me pull... welll? Besides, I'm sure once I get the 405, Chase will walk up and pull it 12 times for his warm up.


    Isaac:
    lol you've seen me do..It's time to show you something else.


    Connor:
    Sounds good. But you need to max out too!


    Josh:
    Ok, I wanna see that.

    pulling 405 should be EASIER for you because the ROM is what... 18"?

    Yeah for my 18" ROM and any other genetic advantages I might have, cause growth wasn't one of them.

    So maybe this is working. I should have done cardio yesterday but got stuck in the office and tied up with stuff at night. Yes, that will come in due time. So yesterday was just a rest day.

    Weight: 185

    Push Day - 12:00pm


    Bench: 135x10, 185x5, 225x2+1, 225x0 D 185x4, 185x5, 185x5, 185x4
    SS: Incline Dumbell Presses: 65x6, 65x5, 55x8, 50x7
    SS: Incline Dumbell Flies: 40x6, 40x5, 35x6, 30x7
    crunches: 40

    Well, we're back to benching. Seeing as I didn't stick to my diet yesterday, I thought I might have eaten enough carbs so it was time to test out the 225 again. I managed the two reps and only finger tip help on the third according to my partner. So that's more than last November, which was the last time I did bench and got the 225. Very pleased to see that went up. I did try it again, and couldn't get it so I dropped down to 185. The 225 took a lot out of me so even the 185's were tough.

    Supersetting the db presses and flies, I found these killed my chest even with the lower weights. Not that I cared since I got the 225 again.

    *does happy dance.

    Nice work on the 225, Rook. Luckily it sounds like you had a good spotter

    Man, you guys are making me wish I was going to the Arnold too! When's the next time there's going to be a mass WBB entourage at an event?

    Awesome pwn4g3\ of 225.
