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?

    SICK!!! It was a TON of fun. I couldnt wipe the smile from my face I was so excited. I placed 3rd in the 82.5kg open weight class (weighed in at 179.8) with a total of 450kg. I only hit a PR on the deadlift. Just wasnt my day with the bench.

    Squat
    346.5 - 3 whites easy
    376 - 2 whites (folded over in the hole but managed to grind it out)
    385 - 3 reds (folded again and couldnt grind it out)

    Bench
    205 - 3 whites easy
    225 - 3 reds (touched too low and had to fight to bring it in)
    225 - 3 reds (no gas left)

    Deadlift
    385 - 2 whites, easy
    407.5 - 3 whites
    418 - 3 reds (I thought this was good but they said I hitched it)

    All in all, an AWESOME day. Clint Harwood (rusty's coach) acted as my coach and helped me out with everything. Thanks a million to him for helping me get prepared for all my attempts, warmups...etc. Also thanks to the guy who lent me a pair of high socks. I was unaware that you cant pull in regular socks so I had to borrow a pair. This guy saved me!

    Vids to come soon

    Great job Detard! That's funny everyone has to wear the socks. Probably not a bad idea with all the bloody shins.

    I might aswell throw my **** in here too.

    The day went really well. I went to sleep last night at 248lbs and weighed in at 240lbs this morning so I made the 110Kg class.

    Squat
    405 - 3 whites
    515 - 2 whites I think, might have been 3
    550 - went up easily, got called for depth though. Once Dan throws up the video, I'll watch it 389032750284 times and curse all the judges for calling me high when I wasn't.

    Bench
    315 - 3 whites
    345 - called for bar drop
    345 - 2 whites

    Deadlift
    520 - 3 whites
    550 - 2 or 3 whites
    584 - got it up, but was called for ramping

    All in all it was a great first meet.

    There should be some good videos from Dan or Keith

    A huge thanks to Clint for coming down to help, and to Dan's dad for recording the lifts. The spotters were great too.

    nice job guys. I've never heard of the sock rule... is that really for keeping blood off the bar?

    Rusty's lifts:

    550 squat: *red*
    Video


    345 bench: *green*
    Video


    584 deadlift: *red*
    Video







    Damn camera had very little memory so I couldn't have Dan's lifts on there too, but luckily his Dad got them all.

    This was the first meet I've seen and I gotta say it makes me want to get myself into a meet in the near future.

    Rusty's coach was up there with one of the largest men I've ever seen. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it was the dude in the blue shirt, right?

    Both of you guys did great! All of it was awesome to see live.

    Yeah the guy in the blue shirt was Clint Harwood. The other mammoth was Dave Hoffman (who was also the announcer).

    Good job Rusty. That is a damn shame they red-lighted that squat. It looks like you broke from a front camera angle, which is usually the worst angle to go by. This leads me to believe it was deep enough for whites. I would have red-lighted both of your last deadlift attempts(yours and Detards), but they were both minor hitches. Strength is definitely there for those weights.


    Why did you open so light in the squat? Nervous?

    great numbers you guys...that 550 squat looked like it hit depth to me...

    Reach down between your legs and find a pair of balls. That's what it takes to lift big weights. Genetics is the weak man's excuse for why he sucks at life. Don't be that guy - RhodeHouse

    Thanks Chris.

    The squat was a little dissapointing with the depth call, but it went up easily, so I'm happy. I opened so light just to be on the safe side. I also had no idea what it would be like to lift infront of a crowd.

    I also got my qualifying total for nationals next year, which was my primary goal with this meet.
