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?

    Everyone looked strong today. Crew is really coming along well. Your 605's were pretty easy B. Can't wait to see what this cycle does for you.

    Thanks!

    Sounds good, I am 100% certain block pulls against bands for max effort build massive strength and nothing much is harder.

    I think that plan is good and you know what your doing, maybe rotate block pulls for singles one week and rep work off deficit the second that way you dont overtrain and can build the exact muscles that pull.

    Speed pulls mixing conventional and sumo is working for me.

    Really keen to see you nail that 600 and then be working on 700 which may fall sooner than you think!!

    Solid taining all around lately Brian. If that forearm keeps bothering you, I know grip work usually helps mine. One of the guys at our gym does nail bending too, and those seem to help my forearms.
    Current PR's 198 - 220
    Squat - 777 - 771.5
    Bench - 611.7 - 628.2
    Deadlift - 567 - 584
    Total 1929 - 1973

    Different feeling in the shirt tonite. Just wasnt as comfortable as I was last week. This week everything felt heavy. But still hit a pr, so its bitter sweet. Once I got under the 2 brd area I bailed on the weight. More time with the heavy weight and Ill get it figured out.

    Strong benching BC. Missing stinks but you will get them next time. You know how it is though and you still picked up a PR on the 2 board.

    With your squatting are you going:

    week 1- 5x3
    week 2- 3x2
    week 3- 2x1

    by any chance? Sorry if you have explained it already.
    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

    Thanks Justin. Leaving on a miss blows bad, but ill get it figured out. As far as squatting, we are rotating straight weight, bands, then chains. Straight was 3 reps@75%, then next I believe is 2reps@85%. 5 sets. And so on. Bands this week. I have to check with Tim or Tone how the whole cycle is laid out. I just show up and they give me the percentages lol.
    **Just got the spreadsheet from Tim. Heres what the cycle looks like up to the meet:
    wk14-Bands - 8x2 @ 75%
    13-Chains - 4x3 @ 90%
    12-Reps - 5x3 @ 80%
    11-Bands - 8x2 @ 75%
    10-Chains - 3x2 @ 95%
    9-reps - 4x3 @ 85%
    8-Down - No briefs light box squats w/ Blue Band
    7-2 Heavy Singles @ 100% (Rev band 110%?)
    6-Bands - 8x2 @ 70%
    5-chains - 4x1 @ 100%
    4-Reps - 3x2 @ 90%
    3-Bands - 6x2 @ 70%
    2-OPENER
    1-off
