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?

    Workout - April 7, 2009

    5/3/1 Deadlift

    135x5, 225x5, (335x5, 355x5, 380x10)

    Barbell Shrugs
    135x20, 225x5x20

    Pull Through (Green Band)
    5x12

    Chin Ups
    4 Max Sets

    Kneeling Ab Pulldowns?
    Not really sure what to call these, but need to incorporate more core work, so just did 5x15 at like 132 lbs of these.

    Quick day, in and out. Feels good to get back on an actual deadlift program. Day off tomorrow, just some cardio. Thursday is DE bench and Friday will be 5/3/1 squat providing the dbags dont close the gym.
    Squat - 450
    Bench - 325

    Workout - April 9, 2009

    DE Bench (or just normal bench)

    Wide Grip Bench
    6x5x235

    Barbell Rollbacks
    3x15x115

    Shirt Work
    No touches without board, but just wanted to work the shirt a bit! Got around the two board, maybe a little lower on the first two sets. Katana single.
    315x3, 325x1, 335x2 (2 board - touch)

    Chest Rows
    4x5 (4, 6, 6+2 25's, 6 plates)

    Tricep Circuits W/band
    Alternating between Red, Black and Purple bands. No idea on how many sets, but it was quite a few!

    All things considered not too bad of a workout. Today is supposed to be a rehab more than anything. And at a bodyweight of 194 after a low carb day yesterday, I was still able to push out my work sets pretty easily! Squat tomorrow then home for the weekend for Easter, thanks for reading!

    Extra workout - April 9, 2009

    Didn't feel that we hit the auxs hard enough to day, so went back to the gym for about a 25 minute workout just to get the blood flowing, plus we were bored.

    Did a sort of tricep circuit with some core work and pullups thrown in

    Overhead Extensions

    80x12, 80x10, 70x10, 70x10, 65x10

    DBell Rollbacks

    3x10x40

    Vbar pushdowns
    5x15

    Fingertip pullups
    3x10

    Kneeling Ab pulldowns?
    *** load

    Also threw in a couple sets of light dbell bench for recovery. Felt great. Cant wait to squat tomorrow!

    Haha, I figure the only way to get hyooge is to go back when you skimp on your auxs the first time

    Hows everything going for you?

    Workout - April 14, 2009

    Thanks Borracho, chains are one of my favorites!

    5/3/1 Deadlift - Sumo

    Warm up - 135x5, 225x3, 315x1
    5/3/1 - 350x3, 380x3, 405x5

    Barbell Shrugs
    135x20, 225x10, 275x8, 315x8x4

    GHRs
    5 Sets x 12 - One set w/mini bands, last 3 with purples.

    Back Raises

    Also threw in planks and kneeling ab-pulldowns or whatever the hell you call those. Great workout today. Dead lift felt easy, no real hip pain and back felt good. Did 40 minutes of cardio this morning (5.5 miles on elliptical at level 12). Day off tomorrow, not sure whats going on thursday as we have a bench meet on Saturday..most likely just auxs to keep the blood flowing. Thanks for reading!

    Yeah, the most I've ever done was with 90 lbs on my back. I was able to hold that for about 1:30 - 2:00 min in the pushup position. They are a pretty solid core builder.

    As for the meet, you dont need to be semi strong to compete. Doesn't even matter if you dont place. Once you do one, you'll be hooked, believe me. From there on out you'll have such high aspirations you'll have nowhere to get but stronger! If you ever have a question on something, dont hesitate to ask! Thanks for reading.

    One of the best feelings in the world man, thanks!

    ME Bench - 2 Board (Middle Finger on Ring)
    Warm Up w/out Board - 135x10, 185x5, 225x5
    Added 2 Board - 245x5, 275x5, 295x3, 315x1, 320x1 PR

    The 2 board felt absolutely incredible! I'm guessing my raw max is somewhere around 300-305 now, so strength gains are continuing!

    5/3/1 Bench - Wide Grip (Ring Finger on Ring)
    225x5, 235x3, 245x8 PR

    Close Grip Bench - (Edge of hand on smooth)
    205x8, 215x8, 225x6

    Chest Supported Rows
    4x8x320

    Tricep Pushdowns - Vbar
    5 Sets x 12

    Wide Grip Pullups
    1 Set x 8 w/45 lb plate
    1 Set x 12
    1 Set x 8
    1 Set x 5

    Just a ridiculous workout today. Went in there and just felt like smashing weight. All things considered, after just doing a bench meet two days ago and nailing two PRs, I feel pretty good about that! Maybe it was because I was wearing one of my new "Strong(er)" Ts Thanks Dave!
