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?

    I forgot to post about my first competition.
    10/17/09 NASA Morehead, KY meet.
    I wanted to be conservative and wanted to go 9/9 so I did.
    Squats: 365, 419, 463
    Bench: 276, 298, 309
    Deadlift: 452, 502, 535
    Total: 1307
    Only thing I ended up using was wrist wraps to bench.
    I really wish I would have went a little heavier but, I'm happy. I did what I intended to do.

    sounds like my 395 plus bands to a box the other day, have a scab to show for it, I'm short and the rack I currently have access too is too tall, so the walk out was tough but getting it back on the rack was even harder.

    585 at the top is no joke, especially to a low box for 2 reps, good job.

    my 2nd day trying low bar squats

    495 X 3
    515 X 2

    these were without wraps/sleeves which is a PR for me without those. Normally I'd use at least sleeves but my next meet doesn't allow them so I'm getting used to training without them. I think I definitely have 515X3 in me but the bar started sliding around on me so I played it safe
