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 feel pretty silly posting this right after Travis' 550, but I hit a 355 raw bench press yesterday, which I am pretty excited about since I was stuck at 345 since October.

    Buccos1, for those of us without a monolift available (like me), that's very important. I do that every few weeks - unrack and step back with an ultra heavy weight.

    Squats - knee wraps and belt
    635/1/1

    Unrack and step backs
    675/1/1/1
    Give chalk a chance.

    Yeah, that is something I am going to be doing a lot more of now. I need to get into position faster/better too.

    95x2
    105x2
    115x2
    135x2

    I've added 135 pounds worth of workload with my snatch session. Technique have improved.

    Raw Squat PR! 515@195lbs Not a PR in weight but the last time I got this Raw I was 20-25 lbs heavier. oh and today was the first time ever that i handle anything over 400 without knee wraps (405 x 3 ) didn't go higher in reps cause I wanted to check my max.
