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?

    Solid accessory day man. I think the Eagles will do fine against the Packers. I mostly think that because of how well Andy Reid does with making adjustments. If you compare the two Giants games you can see some of the things they switched up to take care of all the safety blitzing. Now I know the Vikings ate them up with Winfield the corner blitzing off the edge, but I think with all the crazy blitzing the Eagles have seen this year the proper adjustments will be made. I think it will be a huge game for McCoy in the passing game with a lot of screens and draws. Desean Jackson has a chance to have another 4 catch 200 yard game because of how quick Vick will need to get passes off. Jackson is at his best with short routes, making people miss, and taking it for a huge gain. The only thing I am worried about is our defensive backfield, sometimes they show, sometimes they don't.

    Great synopsis bro. I just hope even though Reid knows what adjustments to make, the O line can hold up and pick up their assignments. And the backfield is just a mess. Rogers is going to try and pick Patterson apart. If its a win for us, it'll be a squeeker I think.

    The birds are gonna SMOKE the packers...even if it requires another 4th and 26 in the last 2 minutes of the game! Just like last time.....

    Good stuff Bri, you're a f***in maniac with that high volume on the GM's....damn I hate GM's, and there's no way in hell I'd ever be able to commit to that kind of volume on them.

    1/7 Squat/ DL

    Box Squat w/ GreenBands
    15"ish Box
    135 x5
    135+G x5
    briefs
    225+G x5
    315+G x5
    belt
    405+G x5
    455+G x2
    500+G x2
    500+G x2

    Rack Pulls
    top of knee
    495 x3
    545 x3
    585 x3
    straps
    635 x3
    685 x0
    585 x3

    Squats felt good again today. Had to train today instead of tomorrow because of some OT at work all day. Had no chalk, so the bar started slipping on the 585 set. 685 just didnt want to go. Still happy with it. Hopefully this will be the last time squatting in this gym for awhile. Going to train with Tone and Tim Gale next week again. Itll be great to see them again.

    Mega session with the squats and DLs, BC. Impressive numbers.

    For a few crazy days at the start of the new year I thought about getting lean and living past 50 and all. Then I thought, WTF? Do I want a big total or do I want to look good, lol. I like your 2011 goals and I think you are selling yourself short. Heres to getting that total or more. GL man.

    Good job on the squats and the rack pulls brother!!!

    IMO, I would contact Ken Anderson just because he deals more with Titan and the turnaround would probably be alot faster.

    Pretty good for "neglecting" bench. Strong board work with a fairly close grip bench.
