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?

    ME Bench and Shirted Bench - October 26, 2009

    Thank you Coke!

    Raw Bench
    Barx10, 135x10, 185x8, 225x5, 245x4, 275x5, 315x2x2, 325x1, 315x2x1

    Shirted Bench
    315x2, 345x2 PR, 365x1 PR, 385x1 PR, 405x0

    OH Triceps Extensions
    85x8x12

    Machine Shoulder Press
    200x3x12, 240x2x6

    Lat Pull-downs Reverse Grip
    150x5x10

    Chest Supported Rows
    4 Platesx2x10, 6 Platesx2x8

    Did a set of 24 pullups, and also threw in some curls (85x5x10) - Very pleased with where the bench went today. Really had no idea what I could do, but everything touched easily and the weight didn't feel all that heavy - the 405 attempt was mostly due to fatigue, but the bar went back a little so paused my upward progress - the way I see it though, got it off the chest so definitely have it in me in a few weeks! Thanks for reading!

    Nice pressing...and no doubt about the fatigue thing man...the raw work you'd done before hand surely took a bit out of you and I am sure you'll get it soon.

    Thanks Borracho & Coke


    Seeing as though we have a meet coming up, I just went to the gym to do my dead lift opener.

    Dead
    Raw - 135x5, 225x5, 315x5, 405x5, 475x1
    Suit - 535x1, 555x1

    I think I will make my opener 525 or 535, second attempt 555 and probably go to 570 or 580 from there depending on how it feels. Very excited for this meet. Hoping for a 405 shirted bench and a 580+ pull! Thanks for reading

    November 7 - Meet Results!

    The bench/deadlift meet was held in Marshfield, Wisconsin on 7 November. I came in at 210 pounds and lifted in the 220# weight class - here are my results.

    Bench Press - Shirted
    Opener (1st attempt) - 350 - Success
    2nd Attempt - 375 - Success
    3rd Attempt - 400 - Miss - I think I lost my tightness, but easy pop off.

    Deadlift
    This was my money maker!

    Opener - 525 - Success
    2nd Attempt - 560 - Success
    3rd Attempt - 585 - Success - 85 pound meet PR!!
    4th Attempt - 600 - Miss - Got this one a little more than half my shin. Popped my ass up too quick so lost leg drive. Very happy to get it off the ground though and I think I'll have it next time!

    Awards-
    Bench Press - Mens Open (Shirted) 220# - 1st Place
    Deadlift - Mens Open 220# - 1st Place
    --------------------------------------------------
    Mens Open - Best Lifter (Deadlift) - I figured it out and it was roughly 2.8xBW


    Thanks everyone for all the support and for reading my log!

    I have not done any meets. Slowly getting back on track after being fitted out with 3 titanium discs a few years back. Don't know how they'd hold up doing DL's though. I'd love to try but still not over the whole fear or re-injury. Maybe one day! Who knows huh? Do they allow Bionic women to compete? lol
