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?

    Mikes Powerlifting log

    I am a newbie to the sport and have competed twice with a contest coming up on the 7th. I train in a garage gym with a group of more experienced guys and it was the best idea I ever had. My first contest I did raw with a 462 squat, 337 bench, and a 507 deadlift. My second meet was a bench meet which I did in a Katana with a 420 bench. Anyway, this next meet is an all raw meet and then I train for my first full equipped meet in May. Good to be here.

    My results from the WNPF Raw Worlds
    Squat
    425
    475
    501 (40 pound pr from last meet)

    Bench
    315
    352 (three reds for uneven extension)
    352 (good)

    Deadlift
    490
    535
    550 (no good)

    Overall, I had a great time. The judging was really strict and I am proud of what I did. I had alot more in the bench but I have got to find a way to fix my lockout problem. I am doing a push pull in two weeks and then my first full single ply meet in May.

    I am still tired from the meet but I wanted to get some work in. This was my second time ever doing declines so it was a little awkward. I would have done shrugs and abs but I was toasted.

    My training today was not very good. I felt weak and run down but I did get some work in. I have been fighting off a cold and have lost some weight so I should be a little weaker.

    Bench
    135 2x5
    225 2x3
    275x3
    315x3
    335x1
    355x1

    3 board
    315x3
    335x3
    355x3
    385x1

    No assistance because I fill like I got run over by a truck. Back to the shirt sunday.
