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?

    3/10 DE Bench

    Bar x10
    135x5
    185x5
    225x24

    Seated Military Press
    135x12
    185x12
    225x10 (pr?)

    CSR
    4plates x12
    5plates x10

    Rope Pressdowns
    150 x15 x2

    In a big rush today. 45 minutes and done. Gave the 225 my best for the comp, but 2 off my pr. Ill give it a shot again next week,but I did get vid of it, so ill put that up when I get home from work. Funny too. My wristband pops off on like rep 4, then I get stapled on 25, so I just layed it down on my lap and put it on the floor..no biggie since it's light weight. I'd never attempt it without a spotter on heavier weight. Shoulder presses felt good and light. I think the 10 was a pr,i can't remember.

    Saw the DE squat vid last night, BC. Very speedy. Like you were spring loaded, lol.

    Put up a pic of the new suit. It cant be that bad. Still amazed that someone would do that. I know it might be done for issues regarding judging depth but I mean, the leviathan is a cream colour so would it not be worse if that was the case. It it doesnt make much sense. Meh, who cares, cant wait to see you bust 800 in it!!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Pretty good day. Still having a few setup issues with my feet, but seem to be working it out. 705 flew up, 735 was a little shaky due to balance issues, so I took 615 with a closer stance to see how it felt. Overall im pleased with the day. Once I tighten up the briefs, I should get better carryover.
