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?

    450x5 DL and a 1000+ total

    So I'm going to be writing my second journal on these forums... My first journal was extremely successful until I got extremely sick and lost 15-20 lbs, which were basically all of my gains and I lost over 100 lbs on my deadlift. I was following the SS routine and I will continue to do so in this journal until I plateau.

    Before losing gains = 215 lbs 6'4"
    Squat 280x5, DL 335x5, Bench 195x5, OH Press 130x5, Power Cleans 180x3
    (These gains were made from 10/6/08-Mid Nov. to Early Dec.)

    Now = 198 lbs (extra fat, but not much 15% or less) 6'4''
    Squat 185x5, DL 245x5, Bench 135x5, OH Press 95x5, Power Cleans 135x3

    I was hoping to achieve at least a 385-400lb deadlift by now, but my sickness set me back by at least 2 months so yeah :/.

    It was kind of sad knowing that I had lost all that strength in only a month. When I used to warm up for squats, 135lbs felt like I was lifting a feather.
