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?

    Ryan,

    I am a garage training 49 year old and I am thinking of reverting to a one-day a week press schedule and I was looking over your logs for the last few weeks and was wondering what you used to guide your percentages for Bnech press form week to week while training raw ? Do you go by feel on that day or do you have a target number of reps you want to hit ? Does not look like you miss very many top weights, so I guess that you do not perform a true ME.

    Thanks,

    Frank

    Hey Frank,
    I go by feel whether shirted or raw. As I warm up I decide how I feel and what I want to hit as my "work" sets. I never do percentages. I mean technically they are percentages, but I know my numbers and what is good or bad for me so I go by numbers. So, yes I go by feel AND have a target set or two. As a met draws near, I will map out week by week the top work sets for each week as a guide. Alot of times these up up changing, but at least I have a guide to go by. Hope this helps! Any more questions just ask, good luck and train hard!

    Super benching Ryan! Looks like everything is right where it needs to be.

    How'd you like the overhead pin presses?

    I did them for the first time in probably 3 years last week and was reminded of how much they can help your bench

    Your bench technique is looking flawless as ever man. Very impressive.

    speed squat.
    hurt something in lower back today. 145 with chains, second rep coming out of the hole my lower back made a huge pop noise. I think it was super tight from benching the night before and I sat at my desk most of the day. Had to stop there. just did some stretching, iced on the way home followed by a mortin and muscle relaxer. Have chiro appt at 4 today. It's just a little tight and sore today. Hopefully no big deal.

    Trip to chiro. L5 out as suspected. Should be fine. hopefully it doesn't effect squats on Friday! Used the ultrasound machine for 4 minutes on each forearm just for good measure.
    Ice and rest today.

    Scott--- thanks man, I've been about 215-217 in clothes. yikes! And NOT getting in my cardio.
