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 Zen. Another lift which I hope to build on and in turn will benefit the squat and deadlift. Going to hit squats this week as the major exercise. Belt, wraps, and probably briefs. Those squats at the end of this one were a killer even with that light of a weight.

    It was honestly beating me up way too much this time around. I was feeling like crap most days. Plus I was getting tired of waiting two weeks to squat again.

    Nice lifting in here man. You gonna do powerlifting? Try to really hammer your triceps, that's been helping me a lot recently. I've pretty much stopped doing direct shoulder work and my bench goes up almost every week just from the heavy tricep and lat stuff. After about a month of hitting triceps hard I noticed that the bar doesn't move back towards my face as much as it did before and that really helps keep my shoulders from getting too beat up. Good luck man.

    I lost the will to thrash my muscles workout after workout. I like this approach and I enjoy working in the real low rep range on these movements. We will see how it goes.

    I am going to try to add 5-10 lbs to them each time they come around if possible. Short Term 350 lbs, 550 lbs, 575 lbs would be good to shoot for. Being still relatively young(29), I would like to greatly increase those numbers if posssible. I got away from that being my focus some time ago, and while I maintained and slightly gained strength, I am nowhere as strong as I should be for someone my size.

    Thanks CP. I feel they should be up a bit more, but I think they will continue to improve as I get more accustomed to front squatting heavy. I would never have been able to use those as a widow on DC training. By rep 10 of the 135 I was happy to be done.
