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?

    10 days out from state deadlift meet.. GOING TO KICK ARSE

    I'm competing in a ADFPF Deadlift State Meet (massachusetts) on Apr 26. I have been a slob the last two weeks eating like **** and not lifting much. I want to pull an ADFPF state record here (for 20-23 @ 220) so I'm going to get focused.. diet / exercise everything...

    This is my 10 day log!

    Wednesday, April 16, 2008, ~216lb

    Diet
    10:30 AM: 3 scoops of Nitrean, 2 scoops of Results, 2 cups of coffee, 4xEFA, 4xETS, 4xfish oil, 1xmulti
    2:00 PM: 2 scoops of Nitrean, 1 large can of Red Bull, 2tb peanut butter, 1 scoop of Waxy Maize
    3:00-4:45 PM: M.E. Deadlift workout (last heavy pulling workout before meet)
    5:00 PM: 12" subway double meat chicken teriyaki with veggies
    8:30 PM:6oz grilled chicken breast on wheat bun with lettuce, tomato, onion (no condiments)
    11:30 PM: 2 scoops of Nitrean, 2tb peanut butter, 4xETS
    3:00 AM: chips with some cheese (don't ask)

    Workout
    M.E. Deadlift 135x8, 185x3, 225x3, 275x1, 315x1, 365x1, 405x1 - all smoked, felt fairly easy - 425xmiss (see comments below), 425xmiss (again, see comments), 135 for 5 singles (see comments lol)
    Front ATF Squats 135x8, 135x8, 165x8
    ATF Squat 225x8
    18" Rack Pulls 135x3, 225x1, 315x1, 365x2
    Some pre-hab foam roller and stretching, some bw pullups to loosen up a little

    Comments
    Overall good diet and workout day. Feeling a lot better - I thought I would be dead from this stomach virus that my buddies had but it seems that I handled it better than they did. Lifting today was good, except for that after my 405 pull I tried to go heavier and the weight felt fine but coming off the floor I was getting a sharp pain in my lower back and glutes. I then realized that my legs were so much weaker than my back (from neglecting squats for a month - I know, shame on me), that I was essentially SLDLing the weight. I didn't want an injury so I stopped and played with a bunch of singles at 135 just to practice proper form so I could be good for the meet. Also, I was pretty toast after wards and I didn't want to over push myself a week out, so my accessory work was all very light.

    If you're 10 days out that should probably be your last deadlift session. I wouldn't have done an ME one if I were you. Just remember, you're not going to get any stronger in the next ten days... But you can definitely make yourself weaker. Eat up, get in a couple light squats (with some very light sldl) and a light bench or two between now and the meet.
