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?

    Big band tension on those squats! Nice work on the paused bench too. Good call to leave it on the extension work! elbows can be a pain

    Thanks Hayden. Yeah elbows need a week to heal. Deload came at the right time for sure.

    10/3 Pullz

    Raw Speed Sumo
    135x5
    225x3
    225+100chains x1 x5
    315+100chains x1
    405+100chains x1 x5

    3in deficit conv
    315x2x5

    BB Shrugs
    495x20x2

    Rev Hyper strap kickbacks
    90x12 x3

    Averageband Standing Ab Pulldowns
    2x50

    Very good day. Sumo stance is totally dialed in and all sets today were easy. The RH kickbacks are when you use the long strap and put it around your feet and kick out intstead of swinging the weight. Really gets at the hams and Glutes.
    *side note- I started cutting weight this week, so Im going to give 198s a run. After 4 weeks Ill decide whether im going 198 or 220. BW now -218

    Backloading works around crazy schedules. My work schedule changes every 2 weeks so I need to adjust. Had good results so far.

    I have the backloading book. I like it alot and its become almost a natural way if eating for me. Carb nite calls for 6 days no carb and on the 7th your allowed carbs with your last 2 meals. I definately dont have the willpower to go that long carb free, especially when its Fall beer season lol. Im modifying it a bit and kindve combining the two.

    Good luck with the cut. Is it worth it to get the book? On to the Eagles, why is Vick still playing. He has so many turnovers it's insane. Not only that they are playing conservative offense just to try and minimize the turnovers. They need to put Foles in, run the shit out of Shady and get something going. The defense is finally playing as good as it needs to and they have Vick fumbling into the end zone giving away games.

    Thanks Nick. Its pretty straight forward. The book has a lot of scientific shit in it, but does break down how to diet when training at non optimal times. Its worth grabbing.
    Im right with you on getting Foles in there. The "pros" are still saying it would be suicide to get rid of Vick. Not sure what they are watching... The under use of Shady along with the turnovers is a recipe for failure. They say Foles is untested against real opponents, but as cool as he is in the pocket and as accurate he is, i think we'd easily be in better shape. Reid will never pull the trigger, unless Vick gets hurt. I wouldnt be suprised if he hopes to see him go down so he doesnt have to make the decision...

    I just think your bench suffered a little bit today due to the big push you've made on Squats and Deads. Your body just looked tired and your technique suffered. The last few weeks before this one your arch has been better than ever. HUGE belly and you lost that today. You're far enough out it won't effect you, it was just an off night. Strength is definitely there.

    3/10 Pullin

    135x5
    225x5
    315x1
    365x1
    Briefs
    405x1
    455x1
    Add metal king
    455+60chains x1
    Switched to canvas only
    455+60chains x1
    455+100chains x1 x4

    Had to pull and run today because of time restraints. Tried briefs and king but didnt like it. So threw on the canvas by itself. Felt ok. Probably go with it.
