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?

    8/1 Deadlift

    Working with Evan Snydman today to get my sumo corrected
    Sumo
    135x5
    225x3
    briefs
    315x3
    405x3
    Boss suit bottoms
    405x3
    455x3
    495x1 fast
    straps up tight
    495x1 tough to get to bar, slow

    Plate loaded Pulldowns
    Supinated grip
    180x12
    205x10
    205x10

    Reverse Hypers
    2pps x15 x3

    GHR
    BW x15 x3

    Today was a good learning day since I still have form issues with sumo. It wasnt about bar weight, just form. Evan is a strong sumo puller (775-800) and really knows the sumo. He had me bring my stance in a bit and point my toes out more and it really helped my lockout, which was my problem. I need more practice straps up, but once I get used to it, shit is going to take off.

    8/4 Squats

    Low box Squat against Strongbands
    145x5
    235x5
    briefs
    325x2
    415x2
    505x0 x2
    Free Squat
    465x2
    465x5

    Pulldown abs
    130x12 x3

    Interesting session. I wasnt able to get down to the box at all until the 505 sets. I forced myself down causing me to drop on the box and getting loose. So I decided to get rid of the box and drop the weight a little. 465 was easy. Session was a little long with 11 lifters today, so no time for anything else.

    One thing I learned was to not force myself down to a box, but to add weight if possible. I know it sounds crazy, but it worked for me, lol. Nice session!!!

    Yeah thats basically what i do, but Tone was calling me so close to the box, i started hunting for it and plopped. A fresh boil on the briefs had them pretty damn tight. Maybe a little too tight lol.

    I know what tight briefs feel like and they suck, lol. I remember my first time doing circa max, I had 465lbs of bar weight and approx. 250-300lbs of band tension with my boss briefs on and I didn't sit on the box on any of my sets, lol.
