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 for the reply man, the IPF seems littered with the sheiko warriors so there must be something to it and I feel the change could be a nice new stimulus. 29, 37 sounds about right, imagine if you werent going on hol you would of followed up with either another prep cycle or 32(the supposed peaking cycle as it were right?)

    nice work anyway, strong lifts, especially for reps, that deadlifts looking real strong
    Check out my training:

    Plan is to take off completely for the cruise this week. Might hit up the gym in the middle of the week, but probably not. Week back will do a de-load week. 3 week cycle of the 5/3/1, with a light week and a meet on 12/1 if everything goes good. Should be able to get squat and deadlift pr's based on this week's work. Bench, as always, is a crapshot.

    Don't be sweating the bench, nothing wrong with doing a few pushups in the meantime while off.

    May be a little early, but good luck come 1st of December.

    Going to try to squat lower bar and wider stance in chucks monday. Put the pressure more on the hams and hips. See how that feels. Will abort early if need be, but gotta try to train. Today I felt great on my first reps with the higher weights, but just can't stay tight.

    Deadlifts today. Better than last week, but not able to do the workout either. Did what I could. Realized warming up, reps weren't a good idea.

    135 x 5 x 3
    235 x 5
    315 x 5
    385 x 3
    405 x 1 x 2
    455 x 1 x 2
    495 x 1
    405 x 1 x 5

    HS Row
    2pps x 15 x 3

    Modified prone row
    60's x 10 x 5

    Hanging leg raise
    3 x 8

    Guess it is ok to work up to almost 500 with no belt and back irritation. Plus a good day of squatting. Still up in the air about the meet on 12/1. I might just do it.
