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?

    Dam, I tried maxing out on reps of 225 on bench (because that's NFL Combine weight), and my old PR was 26, so obviously I was going for 27. I was about an inch away from lockout on my last rep....first time I've ever failed to lockout in my entire life. I've gone until failure, but I mean like first time I've ever gotten to the point where I could just instantly lock it out and failed.

    Didn't quite get 390, but I'm glad I got a new PR! 225 27 times! I know people here can rep that like 100 times, but for me, it's a big accomplishment for an incoming freshman (college).

    EDIT: I think, if I fix my muscle imbalance (it's pretty big, and honestly, I think it's cause I only carry grocery bags up the stairs in my left hand), that I could get another 4-5 reps. Any tips on how to do this, besides dedicating entire days to just one arm?

    Hit 225 28 times on bench, a new PR! Tried 29 times a few hours later, and I think I could've done it, but I hit the rack on 22, and it screwed up my pace.

    Figure best place to put it, provincials from Saturday. Lifted in the fancy new raw division: 55lbs pr on the squat, no PR on bench and a whopping 11lbs pr on deadlift.

    Benched 365+140lbs of chain at 280. Big deal for me because my bench has always sucked and now it sucks a little less.

    I have a lot of exercises I PR in, but I choose to only document Bench, deadlift, and (for now) Front Squat, as Back Squat isn't in my training. Raw lifts. I don't set out to max out all too often as I have no idea where I'd fit a max week in. Perhaps where I would "deload" I should max. Every 8 weeks or so?


    Bench: 225 (8/5/11) <--- from my old 185 PR, this makes me smile.
    Dead: 405 (8/8/11) <--- got an Inzer Forever Belt recently, this should go up with the additional support.
    F. Squat: 235 (8/18/11) <--- projecting adding 10#-20# to this soon


    I am happy with my 195 on the Incline BB Press I achieved a week or so ago. Check my log for that day. Uber fatigue at the end of my last cluster. Fun.
