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?

    Thanks guys. I'll take some when I go there tonight.

    Dave Tate decided to help out by running the EFS equipment sale. I ordered the deluxe mono. I was going to get the Texas Strength System one, but his shipping costs were actually twice as high. That made them almost the same cost, and Elite has faster delivery time.

    I ordered a cambered bar too:

    Can't beat that price. I saw a video clip of a strongman squatting 675 x 3 with it, so it has to be pretty strong.

    I found a used econo prowler on craiglist. I just need to pick it up. Next up is bigger dumbbells.

    Yes! I don't remember if the one you guys have is with the band pegs or not. I plan to bolt it down, so I got the one with band pegs. I'm excited about the cambered bar too.

    No, ours don't have band pegs. We just choke them from the base.

    Bill did a short video tour. I realized tonight I need to built some sort of deadlift platform to distribute the weight out. Kevin did some sumo deads as an accessory and 515 was making the whole place shake. I definitely think bigger weights could have the potential to crack the floor.

    ME raw squat vs 110 lbs of chains
    325 x 1
    375 x 1
    415 x 1 add wraps
    435 x miss (lost my arch)
    235 3 x 5

    I need to wear wraps more. They made me feel unstable and made it hard to tell depth. I'm not happy with the depth on 415. I'm going to try raw squatting more and wrapping my knees on the heavy sets.

    Pullups
    5 x 5

    Abs
    4 x 10

    Thanks Brian. I haven't decided on a sign yet. I'll get to it through. There's actually a printing/sign place on the other side of the building. It doesn't get much more convenient than that.

    Thanks Coke.

    Yeah Brian, I have some sign ideas. I actually want to get new t-shirts too. I found a tattoo artist that wants to design one, so it should be pretty cool.

    I ended up missing training, since I was at work until 8. That's not much fun.

    ME reverse average deadlift
    605 x 1
    655 x 1
    685 x 1 (10 lb PR)
    705 x miss

    I need to do a few speed deads with normal setup on DE day. I've been rotating through deficits, sumo, and rack pulls. My setup isn't as consistent as it should. My setup for 685 was perfect. It was faster and easier than 655. It was horrible on 705. I tend to sink my hips too far on the heaviest attempts. That gets my hips too far away form the bar.

    Medium stance GM
    320 3 x 5

    The medium stance lights up my back completely differently.

    Spud abs
    110 3 x 10

    Knee, hip, and ankle stuff.

    No video since Bill got there super late. He's deloading for USPA nationals this weekend. Today is actually my last day of work until July, 5th!

    Thanks Coke.

    I didn't train Thurs-Sun. I went down to USPA nationals. Our lifters were:

    Suzanne - 925 total with a PR bench
    MCL - 1603 total with PRs across the board
    Bill - 2259 total with PRs across the board and a 903 squat

    It was a well run meet. They ran a morning and afternoon session each day with 2 flights in each.

    ME squat in briefs:
    525 x 1 (added wraps)
    615 x 1
    665 x miss

    I almost passed out on 665. I went outside for about 10 minutes thinking it would pass, but I was still feeling light headed. I figured it was best to stop there. Really odd, since I've never had that happen in full gear let alone just briefs. I guess I was more run down than I thought and 90 degree heat didn't help.

    On the upside, I got the cambered bar. It's pretty nice. There's no knurl, so I'll probably try hockey tape on it to give it some grip.

    I feel ok now. It was just kind of weird. I guess it's easy to feel ok until you get up over 90%. Then you realize you're not 100% really fast, haha. I'll try tape on the bar and see how it works.

    DE squats vs 130 lbs of chains
    235 6 x 2
    325 4 x 2 (not fast enough to be DE but good sets)

    Cambered bar GM
    205 4 x 8

    I didn't get in enough training today. I still have a lot of non-training stuff going on. It does look like we'll be having a USPA meet (raw and single-ply) at the gym. We need to pick a date.
