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?

    Weighted Dips
    BW+90 x12
    BW+90 x10 x2

    Early morning session at Iron Sports. Really great vibe in the gym and we had 9 guys benching, 6 shirted. This was the best day I had benching in this shirt so far. I feel I have my form totally dialed in and the weights felt light all day. Stuck with the numbers on the program though. The last 515 shouldve been a 2, but felt a little pain in my left shoulder thats been nagging me. It was an easy rep and couldve gotten a double, but didnt push it. Tight on time, so ill hit some extra accessory crap at home tonite.

    Great benching B! Pressure is on now. I am working to a 1 board and touch on Wednesday night. let's go!!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Thanks Nick! I finally got a good feel for this shirt. Now i can concentrate on moving the weight and put some good numbers. I should be good for a least a mid 500.

    Those looked even more impressive than I thought! Your elbows are looking picture perfect B. Heels are staying down well also. Now we can start focusing on getting more weight and more reps with higher percentages into your hands! Really nice job.

    Nice work Brian. Almost time to watch the Eagles dominate or fail. The more I think about the LB situation I think they should move Chaney back inside and start someone else outside. He did really well last year when he stepped in for Bradley.

    Thanks Nick. The recipe to beat the Birds right now is pretty simple..Run up the middle and corner blitz on D. I hope the shift on the O line pans out. I was a little suprised they didnt take one snap together against the Jets. Thats been some talk around here too that Chaney should start in the middle. Just too much for Matthews right now.
