The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    My first meet results

    The new gym I joined had a lifting meet (not competition though). Just to see where you're at. We did three lifts: Squat, military press, and deadlift.

    My results were...

    Squat:

    240
    Opened conservatively. Easy!

    260
    Still easy.

    280
    Could feel it on this one, but got it no problem.

    Military Press:

    105
    I've never maxed out on it, and it's never been my forte, so I opened way light. This was a feather.

    135
    Could start to feel it, but still easy.

    150
    I pressed it perfectly fine, without any issues, but then I took a step backwards... grr! I didn't have in mind that we had to keep out feet planted. Miss.

    Deadlift:

    320
    Easy.

    365
    Easy.

    380
    No problem! A new PR for me. People were pretty impressed with this one, and it was the strongest deadlift out of anyone else.

    Pretty happy overall... just wish I didn't take the step on that press. I lifted fairly conservatively; I wanted to make all my lifts. Next time I'll grind the second or last lift out. It was really fun; the best time I've had in years.

    Might have pics or videos soon, not sure if people had taken any of me.
