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?

    6/19/09 ME Bench video

    Alright for some strange reason I felt the urge to take some straight raw weight again this week. I just did 515 then went to my chain work. I had a really good pr. I had only ever done this exercise once before about 6 weeks ago and went 385. So I hit a 50 lb pr today. I want 475 next time.

    Oh yeah, I did a 24" standing box jump and then a 32" at the end of the workout just because I felt like it. Nobody thought it was a good idea which enticed me even more. I want 36" by the end of the summer. I'll make sure to video it.

    Nice work Vincent. But he only hit a 50lb pr because this was only his 2nd time doing this exercise and the first time he did it he was a sandbagger! LOL! I will have to say I am some what disapointed in you Vincent. I was hoping to see a video of the box jumps you were talking about.

    A video has been promised for the 36' box jump. The room we were in has a low ceiling so of course the boxes are set up under a low pipe/fire sprinkler. So just to be safe it gets moved out of the way and under a metal beam

    Good times.

    Thanks, raw meet 8/8 then it's back to the shirt. I have unfinished business with that thing.

    As far as sandbagging Mr. Luyando, I said I had only done the exercise once before. When I feel I hit something good I shut it down. I don't like to miss, it puts me in a bad place. I will hit this lift again in a month That will be a better test as far as a pr.
