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?

    Push/Pull meet in about a month, and

    I have a push/pull meet coming up in about a month, and lately I feel like I'm overtraining. Probably what put me other the top was 4 weeks ago I added in training strongman events but kept my powerlifting routine unchanged. I've fixed that now, but my question is should I just continue training like I am for the next few weeks and take a week of prior to the meet or should I back off a little now so I don't feel like I'm overtraining for the next few weeks. I guess what I'm wondering is if a week of rest before the meet will be enough. I really love the strongman training so I'd rather not stop that before the meet.

    IMHO, if you take a week off completly, meaning on PL or SM training then yes, it should be suffice.(depending on your individual recovery)
    I'm your age, and I gotta say, I love strongman training too but its real hard to focus on both at the same time.

    When I have a meet coming up, I drop all SM training about (2-3) months out. Too much shoulder involvement considering you're benching and log-pressing heavy weights weekly. Not to mention all the lower back stuff!!! I know I couldnt handle both anyway, and put up big numbers together. I think they both require your undivided attention/efforts...

    Just my 2-cents... Good luck bro.
