The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Great to see that steady climb on the weights. You have much better patience than I do.

    Competition lifts are a 520 lb squat, 255 lb bench and 600 lb dead at 220 lbs.

    Will be nice to be over 400 next time. These still feel light, so that is good. No problems with the arm at all. Chalked up and with a belt, I have no doubt I could pull 525 at least right now, and it would probably fly.

    Decline Sit Ups
    3 x 18, 18, 15

    15 minute stretch.

    Oh, and I started rolling again. My buddy and I did before the UFC last Saturday night for about 1 hour. He needs to cool it a bit, but felt good. If he even gets close to an arm lock on the left arm right now, I just tap right away. We are probably rolling tomorrow night and Saturday morning.

    Good news on the bicep pertaining to the deads.

    What style do you pull?

    Thanks guys. Rory I pull conventional. Left arm is actually my overhand arm, which is good as far as avoiding injury I suppose.

    Rolled last night. Might not get to do that again until Monday now. I'll take the two days off with pleasure.

    345 x 5. These felt better on Thursday. Didn't have the bar quite right on my back from the start and that never bothers me for a single, but having it pinch while trying to rep out becomes a tad distracting.

    Bench
    Bar x 5

    Happiest with these out of all 3 today. Felt on point.

    Weighted hypers
    30 lb bb x 10, 8

    Weighted Decline Sit Ups
    +10 x 8 x 4

    15 minutes stretching

    Annoyed with training today. Back felt stiff after waking up today and was never able to really get it loosened up while warming up. After the heaviest squat set training partner goes on for 5 minutes about how I need to be doing glute hams and good mornings since my hips shot up on my last two reps of squats. Didn't feel like getting into it about the bar, and my hips always shoot up as I get fatigued, regardless of how much of those exercises I do. Only thing doing glute hams really have done for me is got me better at doing glute hams. I like them and all, but my plan since I got hurt was to run 5x5 as written until I got my strength back up. He was on board at first, as he wasn't lifting very serioulsy during the time I was off, and needed to build strength back up as well. But already in between sets of squats he is doing good mornings, doing all sorts of laterals in between pressing sets, or doing curls with the fat gripz. I feel like a dick, but he'll suggest something and I'll just respond by stating that sounds like fun to do, I am going to squat, bench, row, do hypers, and do abs. Maybe I need to change my attitude. Done rant.

    I hate it when the bar doesn't sit right on my back. I usually just rack the weight, take a break, and retry it again.

    That does suck, I'm the same way. I can deal with it for one rep but not for multiple reps. I actually squatted 1020 in the gym with the bar leaning to my left and instead of racking it to fix the problem, I just went with it, lol.

    That is what I usually do as well. Obviously never had that much weight on my back, but I always figure you need to be strong enough to get it done even when conditions aren't optimal. I over compensated from my prior set today, as I had the bar too low to start and had to re-adjust mid set. Just couldn't find the sweet spot today, but still got it in.

    My training partner and I differ on some things. He is one to end a set if his form isn't perfect, but I'll gut out two more reps if I can, even if they are a tad ugly. At the same time he likes pushing assistance work to failure and doing different stuff all the time, whereas I'll stick with something and build gradually over time. We are built a bit different, so form on the same exercises look a bit different, but he sees his way as the way. I understand where he is coming from and all, but sometimes I just zone out and do my thing. Will be better once back on 5/3/1 because there will be more flexibility.

    That's the main reason why I went for it because just my luck, if I was at a meet I would of gotten the squat command and I wouldn't have a choice.

    2/15

    Squats
    Bar x 8, 5
    95 x 5 x 2 Got there early before training partner, so took more warm up sets tonight

    140 x 5
    190 x 5
    245 x 5 x 2. Bar in the right place each set. Felt good tonight. Just need to buckle down and focus better when it gets a bit heavier. Also, going to introduce the belt Thusday for my set of 3 with 355. Belt on the top set from here on out.

    Incline
    Bar x5

    90 x 5
    115 x 5
    140 x 5
    165 x 5

    Deads

    220 x 5
    285 x 5
    345 x 5
    405 x 5

    Experimented with touch and go on the last two sets. Didn't really like it. Last set on rep 3 the bar touched on the one side first and threw me off. Grip was lost after the 4th rep, so had to reset anyway. Re-gripped and pulled it pretty well. Back to the dead stop on each rep. From here on out straps on the heaviest set too. I could care less if it is not hardcore or not. I am not re-injuring this arm. Grip on a single when chalked up has never been an issue for me.

    Decline situps

    If you haven't experimented much with touch&go, it can definitely throw you off. IMO, doing with a dead stop, are alot harder.

    Brian, I have done them in the past, but have done the dead stop since resuming training. I saw the conversation you and Scott Yard were having about them and considered them with my bicep injury. I felt more strain though doing them that way. I am just going to do double overhand and strap on the last set for the time being. Dead stops for all reps.

    2/17/11

    After whining for two training sessions I have nothing to cry like a girl about today. Just some weight smashing, as should be done with these light weights. No belt on the squat yet, the sets felt good and went without it on the triple. Won't need it Sunday. No talk about hips shooting up first today. These were on point, as I was dialed in.

    Squats
    Bar x 8
    100 x 5

    140 x 5
    190 x 5
    245 x 5
    295 x 5
    355 x 3
    245 x 8. Just for fun I paused for a 3 count at the bottom on the last rep.

    Bench
    Bar x 5

    80 x 5
    105 x 5. Did 115 since it was on the bar
    125 x 5
    165 x 5
    200 x 3. Did 205 actually since it was easier with loading plates. Was not super easy, but went up smooth. I have been training all bench reps with a pause. Still trying to get speed as I get heavier, but I have always kind of been a grinder type bencher.
    135 x 8

    Rows
    70 x 5
    95 x 5
    120 x 5
    145 x 5
    180 x 3
    120 x 8

    Chins
    1x1 It didn't feel too bad today. Maybe in a month I can start doing some sets of 3

    Dips. BW x 12 x 3

    BB Curls
    50 x 15, 12, 10

    BB Extensions
    70 x 12, 12, 8

    15 minutes stretching
