The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Awesome job on the bench PR's and strong pulls. Sucks about the rib though, hopefully it's not a setback.

    Nice benching and pulls! Deficits with a lot of chain weight are no joke! Been using them for ME work and they blow your brains out! Feel great for the lockout!

    Thanks Bri! Rib is fine. Feels ok today. Just a minor pull or something.

    Thanks Jay! I love that movement with the chains. I feel I get a lot out of it. And conventional felt great. No back issues, so im going to incorporate more conv movements into training.

    Shitty second half of the week for training. Work and life issues. Thursday I got some shoulder DB work and pullups late night at home.

    6/2
    Was working but left for a bit to meet up with the crew for squatting, but no sooner did I get there, I got a call to head back. So today was a deload instead of next week.
    Bar+200 chains x 8
    325 x5 x2

    Then had to roll. Blah. June is going to suck for training, so ill need to find a battle plan to get everything in.
