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?

    Just destroyed my Squat and dead PB's!

    I have not posted for a while as i think i was putting far too much thought into my training, so i decided to stop thinking and just train.

    I changed my routine to low reps and train for a 1 rep max on the big lifts.

    Previous PBS

    Squat 130 kg / 286lbs
    Deadlift 140kg / 308lbs

    4 weeks later

    New PBS at 87.5kg body weight

    Squat 172.5 kg / 379.5 lbs ATF
    Deadlift 182.5 kd / 401.5 lbs

    I am very happy with this progress.

    I have to thank my mate for this as he has corrected alot of mistakes in my technique and pushed me harder.

    I still think i can push these lifts higher

    What you guys think about my lifts for my weight?
    Train,train hard.Eat,eat lots and sleep even more.

    wow, that's a HUGE improvement...good job

    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 guys. I am actually a few pounds lighter than before too!

    Off out of town tonight to train at a different gym. Maybe my deadlift will increase again in new surroundings too.
    I hear nobody deadlifts at this place either.

    Great progress man. It sounds like you've been working hard and having a training pertner to push you has helped.

    Make sure you make a bloody mess of their bar and after your very last rep, drop it from the top so it shakes the room.

    Maybe if you're on gear. Nothing wrong with natural rapid progression.

    Great work. My previous comment was in response to Jake, as I didn't think you were on anything.
