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 Brian! It does. Part of it is each meet there's less stuff to worry about. I have my own lights, PA, and calibrated scale now. I started out borrowing that stuff. I re-use the same chair/table and porta potty vendors, so it's super easy to book it. I have the same people helping each meet, so we really have it down. It is still two 12-hour days to setup then run it.

    ME squat with SSB vs light band
    330 x 3
    360 x 3
    380 x 3
    400 x 1

    My plan is to stick with triples until the set I can't get 3. This will keep my squat weights a little lighter so my form stays better.

    Sumo DL:
    495 3 x 5

    This felt great. I don't remember the last time I did sumo without briefs on.

    Neutral grip pull ups
    4 x 8

    TKE
    blue 3 x 15

    Band ab/hip
    MM 4 x 10

    I definitely need to keep my chest up more in the hole. You can see from the side the bar makes a s shape at the bottom.

    Sadly, yes... It's just a partial tear. I'll see how it feels Thursday.

    Thanks Brian. I'll live. It's way less than you went through, and you're even stronger now than before.

    ME sumo deadlift vs short average
    365 x 1
    405 x 1
    455 x 1

    I'm about 80%. Sumo hurt a lot less than conventional.

    I started to do some really high box squats, but they were so high it wasn't useful.

    Band leg curls
    mini 5 x 20

    Neutral grip pull ups
    4 x 8

    Too bad about the partial tear, you can come back even stronger afterwards - good luck!

    Thanks Coke. It happens. The bruising is very minimal, so it can't be too bad.

    Thanks Brian! It sucks a lot more raw than in briefs, since briefs help me stay more upright out of the hole.

    Thanks Coke!

    I'm going to Ohio to help Cliff at XPC semi finals, so I won't be training this weekend.

    Elbow and shoulder hurt like crazy, so I didn't do much else.

    ME deadlift:
    605 x 1
    635 x 1

    Cambered bar box squats vs 105 lbs of chain
    345 3 x 3

    Then I was at Super Training Saturday and Sunday for their meet.

    Thanks! He hit a 50 lb squat PR with 854. He bombed on bench though. His right arm was lagging badly and wouldn't lockout.

    DE squat vs 205 lbs of chain
    260 10 x 2

    That's too much contrast for raw, but it probably won't hurt to occasionally do it.
