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?

    Starting this week Im going to do a new training split. It'll be as follows:
    Monday-ME Bench
    Wednesday-ME Squat
    Thursday-DE Bench
    Saturday-Squat assist/DL

    Hopefully this works out. I wanted to have a day between my 2 ME Days for rest/recovery and space between my Squat and DL days. Because of time constraints, I cant really squat/DL on the same day. Ill also add some conditioning work in here and there. Tonite is my first session with DGabe, Tone and his crew. should be awesome. Stay tuned

    10/12 ME Bench

    135x8
    185x5
    225x5
    275x3
    315x3
    *add shirt*
    3 brd
    405x3
    2 brd
    425x2
    Full ROM
    455x0
    455x0

    3 brd raw
    335x6
    345x5

    Miniband pull aparts
    3 sets of 20

    Tonite was the first night with the new crew and its a great bunch of guys. Tone really laid into me and got my form moving in a positive direction. Now onto the lifts.....I felt alot tighter in form, but my strength is lacking. I was definately getting good leg drive after a little adjustment, but just couldnt move any weight. i have to get used to the bar path also. Its all up from here though. This is exactly what i needed. Im sure my strength will come around so im not sweating anything. Just pissed i didnt even hit 455 though...next time im owning it.

    Couldnt agree more. My numbers didnt really strat going up till I got a good group around me. Could just be the form changes that caused the miss at 455.

    What size is the shirt bro?

    Sounds like you're lifting with a solid crew man. Don't worry about those misses in the shirt, you'll figure it out.

    Yeah I agree about form. Tone reallt got my bar path in a better way, and im not used to it. I felt i was concentrating on the path and not getting any pop off the chest. i know once im dialed in itll be all good. The single APT is a size 50 which sounds big but fits pretty well. I also have a 48 that i might give a go also. One of the guys has a double F6 that should fit really well and offered to sell if it fits right, so the next few weeks will be all about finding the right shirt. Thanks for stopping buy too bro

    Very quick day today, but effective. I had little time today because I had to take my kids on their class trip to a pumkin patch, then I have to be in work early because of the potential Phillies NLCS clinch. I have to ride a bike for 12 frickin hours among standing on corners all day down the stadium. Kindve a buzz kill on the festivities, especially when last year I worked in the dugout for every home playoff and World Series game. Being on the field for the World Series win last year was one of the best experiences of my life. This year Ill be outside crackin heads on Broad st with all the looters. I have no problem with all the celebration, sh it id be out there too getting wasted in the intersections, but when it comes to property destruction, Im fukin layin the smack down. That sh it aint cool at all. Anyway, LETs GO PHILS! Back to Back its ours!
