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?

    Those were some big ass shrugs awhile back. Nice squatting as well.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Thanks Chub. I like hitting the shrugs really heavy. 5/3/1 seems to be helping my squat/DL so im gonna stick it out with a few more cycles then test my 1rm again.

    I'll second that, I usually do some pull-aparts, pushdowns and hammer curls with bands on off days and it's helping keep my shoulders and elbows healthy and to help with recovery.

    6/25

    I had new ink done on my right shoulder/arm today, and its gonna hamper my training for about a week I cant through a bar on my shoulder until it heals. Im taking the fam to the Jersey shore until Mon night, so Ill have to train at this gay ass World gym down there. Im also going to start some cardio again. Time to get rid of some fluff. I missed my DE bench workout today and am not happy about it at all. Between the ink appointment, watching my kids while wifey's working, then a MC club meeting, I couldnt get it done. BLAH BLAH BLAH...no excuse..I need a home gym for these days. Im actually thinking of throwing an old squat cage out on my back porch. No room anywhere else. My neighbors will love me HAHA..fukin row houses suck.

    What did you get done? Half-sleeve? I've always thought that it'd be nice to train outside somedays, back porch squatting sounds great.

    What did you get done? Half-sleeve? I've always thought that it'd be nice to train outside somedays, back porch squatting sounds great.
    Its the beginning of a fullsleeve. It starts at the top of my trap and stops at the bottom of my side delt. This piece is of a celtic armor shield with a steel looking mesh top(on trap). Ill post a pic when its done.

    My buddy has a cage in his yard and its pretty cool squatting outside. I just have no other place to put one.

    Well, im back from the mini vaca with the family. The gym I wanted to use was temporarily closed for whatever F'n reason, and no other gym in the area. So I did some band work and some old fashion military training(push/pull ups, situps, wall jumps...Ahhh the good ole days). So now im behind in my training schedule..again..and have to get on the ball...again. Im off for another week with nothing to do, so ill catch up this week. Im gonna be a little weak I can tell with the lack of training and sh it ass diet while away(no way near enough protein). Hopefully not too bad. Im thinking of trying a 6 week cycle of Patrik Nyman's Prilepin Bench Program to kick it back in gear. Heard some good things about it. Heres a link: http://tsampa.org/training/scripts/n...rilepin_bench/
    Im happy with the 531 for squats/DL still so maybe one more cycle and ill reevaluate my 1rms.

Overall Im very happy wth todays w/o.

    Well, I found where the vaca caught up to me. Just didnt have it today. Deads felt heavy, and the 415 stalled knee-high. I think its more of a form problem though. I felt I was pulling with my back too much. I need to get vid of it and post it on WBB.
