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?

    Wayne's Bench only log

    Whats up everyone? Thought I might start a log on here for fun. As of right now I don't have any meets planned for the rest of the year but you never know what might come up.

    I am a bench only guy so don't bust my balls if I don't log my squat and deadlift work. I do them but not like I should. I compete in any fed I get a chance to lift in. I have lifted in APF/AAPF,WABDL,NASA,APA and SLP. I want to do one of Carps UPA meets next year if I get the chance. My best bench is 634.8@235 in a single Katana.

    My biggest goal right now is to stay healthy. I have had some elbow issues over the last several years but I think I have found how to work around them. I plan to compete back at 220 next year. My BWT is a sloppy 230 right now. So after not much lifting for the last few months it all starts on Tuesday

    With work, Family ect I have done zero assistance work for about 8 months. I was making the ME bench days early this year but after my last meet in May I mostly just help the team. Today was the first day of any bench assistance. So try not to laugh to hard.

    Light day

    speed bench
    135x 3 sets each of 3 dif grips

    shoulder press clean once press for reps (My OHP has always sucked!! I really need to work on it.)
    135 x 10
    135x10
    135 x 8

    side raise,shrugs Rotators and out.

    Just sorta jacked around today. I tried some things I have never tried before.

    Reverse band bench (average bands )

    Bar weight = minus bands
    225x10
    315x8
    405x3
    495x1
    545x0 I need bigger bands
    495x2
    495x2

    I really did not like these at all. I have seen lots of people doing these so I thought I would give it a shot.


    Reverse grip bench
    135x6
    225x3

    I am not flexible enough to do these!!! Did them years ago no plans to try them for a while.

    All easy as can be. That shirt is really beat up and I don't get a ton of support but thats what I want right now. the only reason I am using the boards is to save the elbow. It seems to be that to many full reps in a shirt really bother it.
