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?

    Do I have the right idea with my 5/3/1 deload?

    Today was my first day of my deload week of my 1st wave and was wondering if I have the correct formula for it. Today was Miltary Press so what I did was:

    Warm up
    40% x 5
    50% x 5
    60% x 3

    Work set
    40% x 5
    50% x 5
    60% x 5

    Assist work
    60% 5 x 10
    chin ups
    5 x 10

    272 425 345 495 1265

    less warm ups if any. its a deload and time for repair. your assistance should be fine as long as it allows for proper healing/repair. Usually my 5/3/1 deloads I up the cardio a bit and look at it as an easy week.

    I would do no warm ups and just the deload sets.

    That said, I haven't done a deload yet, but when I do I'm doing a 45%-55%-65% 10-8-6 formula. Probably not the best way to go about it, but mentally I need to do a little more than the prescribed in order to feel like I accomplished something (as wrong as that is )

    Assistance work I'm going to do the same exercises that I did for the entire cycle, just lower the weight by a good portion and go from there.

Start kicking ass, and take out the crap that doesnít matter. Start doing and believing in the stuff that works, and do it today and forever. You want science and studies? **** you. Iíve got scars and blood and vomit."

    No warm up really. Assistance should be 50-60% of your normal volume.

    Warm ups for military, bar x5, 135 x5, 225 x5, then work sets of 3x5 with 315. Come on, deload is simple.

    You are just looking for a way to rub it in that your warmup is more than most people's work sets
