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?

    Squat 455 (currently 360)
    Bench 300 (currently 230)
    Deadlift 485 (been stuck at 350 a while)
    Do 2 powerlifting meets
    Not allow my conditioning level to slow me down in the gym
    Spend 6-8 weeks training with some other system than the Westside template
    Better posture and mobility, complete rotation of shoulder disconect without having to use an extremely wide grip.

    This will be my second year powerlifting and I am doing the 5/3/1 so my goals are 600 sq 475 bp 600 dl all raw and I would like to put on more weight muscle I hope. Good luck to everyone on thier goals. Vinny thank you and matt for all your advice at the bench seminar. I go tonight to get set up for my cpap. If it works as well as you guys said maybe I should raise my goals.

    My short term goal is to rehab my shoulder after it gets scoped on Monday. During that time frame, to get my bodyweight down to 230. Compete in the summer (2 meets) and bench a PR at 220 (over 730), and by years end to bench 800 at 220. And I plan to train like never before to obtain those goals.

    -Finish my undergrad
    -Decide what I plan to do with my life outside of school
    -Bench 545 equipped in single ply, bench 405 raw
    -Deadlift 635 and consistently deadlift over 600lbs
    -Get my bf to single digits or close to 10% before I go away with the gf at the end of april
    -Squat 700 in briefs, belt and knee wraps
    -Get my ass into gear and compete
    I missed a few of my goals last year, so who knows.
    PRs: 655/525/645 = 1825 Total
    Meet PRs: Bench Only 525

    Work on all my pressing in general. I think with an overall stronger upper body that my strongman training will come along alot faster.

    Lifting;
    Total Junior Elite (302kg) and qualify for Junior Worlds in 2010... there by setting me up to hit Senior Elite (342kg) in 2011 to qualify for 2012 Olympics.

    Achieve a perfect Entrance score and begin studying a double degree in Law and Commerce.

    Undo the damage several years of being a self righteous cocky prick to everyone around me.

    Live by my new life motto, forgive and forget.
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    This year I would like to bench 350, squat 500, and deadlift 500. I'm a little ways away from all of those, but with some hard work, who knows?

    I also want to get back into better general shape and do more extra workouts focused on GPP and bringing up weak points.
