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?

    Aspiring Strongman

    Decided to start a journal here. Nog intro, just straight to weights.

    Ive beenhaving problems with my lower back lately, so i made a foam roller and will focus on my OHP for the next three weeks by utilizing Smolov Jr. I did Smolov Jr for my deadlift and it worked wonderfully, im hoping it will help me break through a plateau on OH lifts.

    Accessory work will alternate between Hip Belt Squats(using a dip belt) and light Sumo Deadlifts(focusing on utilizing glutes and hip drive) and lots of stretching, foam rolling and heavy back/upper back work.

    Here is the first workout from yesterday. Was short on time because of work so i did this in about 30 minutes, had to leave out light sumos

    Did some foam rolling before starting lifting for about 10-15 minutes

    *used my dip belt and stood on two metal folding chairs. Hams touched calves on each rep, did not lockout each rep*

    25x20
    50x20
    70x20
    80x20

    Finished with 15 minutes of stretching hams, hips, low back, etc.

    Good idea bro. Don't mess around with a "bad" Back. Hopefully all you need is a good massage to fix it. GL.
