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?

    My Doug Hepburn inspired quest for 405

    New here to the forums, I actually followed 275er and Petethe Greek here from another board as the other board was really not a good place for powerlifting info as they were the only powerlifters there with maybe one other person, and myself who really just got into it a few months ago. I can already see much more activity here and thats cool. I have also actually seen a few journals from people I met at an East End Barbell meet back in December, so hello to John and the crew.

    anyway, what you will see in this journal is pretty unorthodox as far as powerlifting goes. I train at home by myself right now, so a lot of the hardcore stuff is out of my grasp for now, so I try to incorporate different ideas into what I can and can't do. Right now, I am doing a lot of reading on Doug Hepburn's routines, and they seem to be solid and simple, which is good for me right now. All singles, ranging in sets from 4-10 per workout. work up to 10 singles, then up the weight and go back to 4. Simple right? When it stalls, go to doubles, when doubles stall, go to triples, then back to singles. I had some success with lots of sub max singles for my meet, so I figured why not.

    Here are my most recent numbers from the meet back in december, all done raw with just a belt.
    squat-a pathetic 385
    bench-an almost equally pathetic 335
    dealift-a respectable 520

    and off we go....

    Bench Press
    135 x 8
    225 x 6
    Add loose inzer HD blast
    315 x 1 (10 sets)
    *I want to add that this shirt is super loose for a bench shirt. I had it made with an open back, which I basically leave open. I can touch with 135 on the bar I believe, definitely 225. I am using it mainly for protection of my shoulders/pec tendons. I really don't feel any rebound at the chest, but I do feel more confident in that I won't hurt myself.

    OH Press from Rack
    190 x 1 (6 sets)

    Barbell Curls
    120 x 1 (5 sets)

    done.
