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?

    Thanks Bri! I didnt like it too much the first time I used it, but this time I felt better in it and got better pop off the floor. I cranked the straps down this time which I didnt do the first time. Depending on how the Leviathan goes(if I have enough time with it), Im not sure which ill use this meet.

    LOL Look at your barrel ass using 140lb Dumbbells! Getting strong as shit B!

    On a side note, Retro only goes to 100lb dumbbells and unless Tim or I are there, they NEVER get used.

    Strong pulls and pressing BC. Really ramping it up. Impressive as hell.

    Gladiators instead of Inzer. I doubt ill get it broken in for this meet,which sucks because my Boss is pretty beat.
    Frustrating, mate. You have been waiting an age. One of our guys got his leviathan on Wednesday. HOLY FU*K!! That is one aggressive piece of kit. I did not realise just how thick and rigid they were. I hope yours does arrive sooner than later and you do get the chance to use it.

    By the way, my benching was awful on Wednesday night and I still havent brought myself to post it. Took 528 to the chest x3 but didnt touch once...pissed off. I bow to your superior strength and benching prowess You look like you have so much more too. Awesome.

    Haha no bowing yet. I need to hit 600 off the chest before i consider myself a "strong" bencher. Your going to get your bench in order and touching real soon. Have you touched at all yet with the metal? (i forget). Get some good angles of your elbows again and im sure Tone can get you touching.
    It really sucks about the canvas. I really need it i think to hit my numbers this meet. We are hitting 1 rm tomm, so this will determine where im at.

    Thanks Nick! Im feeling pretty good about them. My pull seems to be slowly coming along. I need to get the full bar weight in my hands and see where im at. Prob in 2 weeks.

    9/17 Squat day of doom...

    I was doomed from the beginning. Head just not in the game today.
    Briefs from beginning
    145 x5
    255 x5
    345 x3
    435 x1
    525 x1
    615 x1
    suit straps up
    705 xmiss
    705 x1
    725 x1
    Wraps
    760 xmiss

    Very disappointing day. We were scheduled for 100% on this cycle(800). I had doubts in my head which killed it from the get go. I wasnt sitting back enough at all and the last set my arch was shit and my shoulders were forward. I got stapled forward on the way down which hasnt happened in a long time. Moreso form than strength issues. But enough to fuck with my head. I had a heavy pull day on Wednesday, so from now until the meet, all heavy work will be on Saturdays.

    If I doubt me getting a lift, I take a step out of the gym to get shit right in my head instead of letting that loom around and kill my mental preperation. We have a saying that we don't let ourselves get psychologically annihilated before making the lift. Still good work getting in a getting work done.

    Yes, it is basically a mind sort of game going on, but days like these are crucial for fine tuning and tying up loose ends...glad you can see it for what it is.

    You have the strength and you know it. You also have a good team around you too so get the head in and get it done. Next time, take what you came for.

    Hard to hit big numbers when your head isn't all there... Tough luck but learn from it an keep the head up. Still hit some good strong numbers on an off day. Smart move with moving all heavy work to one day mate, will help for sure

    This past week, I was invited to attend the next World Police and Fire games which are held every 2 years. They will be in August 2013 in Belfast Ireland which will be pretty bad ass. Its a raw meet, but I didnt know much about it, so after a little research, its not a full meet, but either a raw Push/Pull or BP only. Not happy with that, but it still would be a great experience and trip. So 2 years to train for it. I should be able to be ready
