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?

    Thanks again coke. Saturday I just did several different movements for high reps. I re-evaluated and want to add frequency to my training. Want to train 4 days per week as well. So decided to start that this week and take a true de-load to introduce the schedule. Then I dropped my percentages a bit with the squat, dead, and oh press to acclimate as well. This way I can get back to the real rep scheme too. In truch I really buggered the lower back some time ago and never backed off like I should have. Lately I have been hurting all over despite frequent foam rolling and stretching. So, re-charge and get to where I am chomping at the bit to get back to it next week. Now this unfortunately is also the last week with my most recent training partner. He is moving out of the area Saturday. He is going to hit it hard Tuesday and Thursday I believe still. I will bench with him tomorrow, but then regular bench day will be Wednesday.

    Today
    Squat
    Bar x 8, 5
    115 x 5
    165 x 5
    205 x 5
    255 x 5
    305 x 5

    Leg Curl
    50 lb stack x 20 x 3

    Hyperextension
    BW x 10 x 3

    Hangining Knee Raises
    3 x 10

    Stretch

    So we will be doing

    Monday 3/5/1 Squat
    Hamstring movement
    Hypers
    Abs

    Wednesday 3/5/1 Bench
    Close Grip
    Weighted Chins
    Pulldowns

    Thursday 3/5/1 Deadlift
    5/3/1 Row
    Good Morning variation
    abs

    If the lat work affects the deads I might just nix it until Saturday

    Saturday 3/5/1 OH Press, scaled back a bit
    Continue with the rest of my Saturday accessory work, hammer back work, side db laterals, tricep ext, pushdowns, and curls

    Losing a training partner is always an unfair ordeal any way you look at it, but nothing stays the same forever. Keep hanging tough, good to see you revising things and planning ahead.

    Kind of like most relationships and friendships. Things don't stay the same forever. We had a good one today though. He benched heavy and I did my bench deload, with one twist. Based on reading Tom G's log I decided to get a slingshot and messed around a bit with it. Training partner used it to get 405 quite easily and then just missed it straight due to some technique mishaps. He is close.

    Bench
    Bar x 20, 5
    85 x 5
    110 x 5
    135 x 5
    165 x 5

    Close Grip- Thumb from smooth. Put the slingshot on and did 225 x 5 x2. Had to try 275 for 5 and that was pretty easy too. This will be a nice overload tool.

    DB Bench
    50's x 15 x 3

    Pushdown
    20 lb stack x 30 x 3

    Stretch

    So more thinking about this schedule, it is simple. Bench day will be pushing movements and some pushdowns, deadlift day will be all pulling movements, so dl into bentover rows and then db prone rows. If I want to do GM's they'll get thrown in on squat day. that was easy.

    Saw your post concerning paused squats and the benefits thereof, may be adding them in and putting 'em to use.

    Oh man Coke, that was kind of a joke. I know you don't stray too far from journal land, but you may want to check the member video section.

    Had another thought today. I had considered doing this a year ago and then never followed through. OHP day is going to turn into an incline day.

    Yup, that is exactly where I am headed once my OHP stalls. I think it's a good idea.

    Do you feel some carryover from inclines? I've been thinking about doing the same thing.

    Sure did Coke, now to pick it up a notch.

    Squats, training solo again. Working on technique as much as weight right now. I am in a funk where the place I am putting the bar is I believe pinching a nerve and it isn't helping to feel explosive with the heavier weights. If anything though, the last set was the best and finally felt explosive.

    Bar x 8 x 2
    135 x 8
    185 x 5
    230 x 5
    275 x 3

    320 x 3
    365 x 3
    410 x 3 x 3 Belt

    Good Morning
    150 x 5 x 3

    Lying Hamstring Curl
    70 lb stack x 15, 10, 10

    Hanging Knee Raise
    + 20 lb db x 8 x 2. This was difficult to get in position on my own
    BW x 12

    Stretch. Didn't overdo it today because of deadlifting Thursday.

    Last night hit some cardio and stretching. Tonight was meh. I had to bring my grip back in to pinky on the ring because a few weeks ago going index on ring I felt quite a strain in my right pec. The right shoulder is the one with the labrum tear from years back. Also with squatting monday and deadlifting tomorrow, decided to go back to feet flat as to not jack the back up too much. Weird day because it felt like the tighter I tried to squeeze, the weaker I felt. I may have pinched something squatting Monday, who knows.

    Bench
    Bar x 15, 5
    110 x 5
    140 x 5
    165 x 3

    195 x 3
    225 x 3
    250 x 3 x 3. For some reason on all 3 sets, the 3rd rep felt the best.

    Slingshot
    275 x 3
    305 x 2. Wouldn't have got 3, but that was the goal.

    Close Grip. Thumb from Smooth
    225 x 5, 3, 5. Don't know what happened on the second set. Might have hit it too quick after the first one.

    DB Bench
    60's x 15, 15, 12

    Pushdown
    20 lb stack x 25, 20, 20

    Stretch

    Deads

    260 x 5
    315 x 3

    365 x 3
    415 x 3
    470 x 3 x 3. First set I felt like I could have got 8+. Even the last one would have been able to gut out 6 I believe if push came to shove. And this was with my hamstrings sore as shit. Not bad.

    Bent Over Row
    135 x 5

    150 x 5
    170 x 5
    195 x 12

    Modified prone row

    Hanging leg raise
