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?

    Awesome stuff going on in here. Weights looks strong. Was it your back you tweaked a while back? Everything good on that front?

    Solid benching and makeshift leg day. I really have to start doing more paused benches, just so brutal at the heavier weights. Walt and Saul are definitely the two best characters, i'm curious to see what the Saul spin off series is gonna be all about.

    I agree 100% I like that they bowed out before things got repetitive. They ended it well too with the way Walt went and all, damn good writing.

    Awesome deads, I find if i'm not feeling 100% during a session its my deadlifts that get negatively effected the most.

    My low back hasn't been the best lately, so I need to keep things in check. I've dropped some weight too and not having the extra girth around the belly takes some getting used to. A belly helps with squattting for sure.

    Do wish Jessie would have been killed in the finale too. Really disliked how he turned out, but he went through a lot. Skylar dying would have been nice too!

    Last night. Felt good about this one.

    OH Press
    Bar x 8
    80 x 5
    100 x 5

    195 x 1. Belt and wraps
    140 x 10

    Chins
    BW 3x3
    Rest Paused 10 + 5 + 3. 18 total. Very strict chin.

    Close Grip Bench. 1/2 thumb from smooth. Count at the top and bottom pause.
    135 x 3

    180 x 5 x 3
    205 x 2
    235 x 1
    180 x 9. TNG

    Bent Over Row
    140 x 3
    Messed up my first set's weights and put more on. Should have been 150, put put on 160. so did.

    160 x 5
    185 x 5
    200 x 5

    So for those trying to follow, with the main lift of the day I am doing the 5/3/1 percentages for the required reps and then kind of going by feel after that. For the second lift, doing some rep work with percentages and maybe a few extra sets if I feel up to it. Rotating the first lift each week so I don't have to de-load after 3-4 weeks and the cycle lasts 6 instead.

    So after that week, decided to bump training weights down a bit. I am almost at a walking weight of 210, so a bit of a decrease isn't discouraging. Also deep into flag football season and we play Sunday, so pretty much doing something 6 days out of the week now. Adding Thursday to the routine actually is making recovery better so far.

    10/14

    DB Bench
    70's x 15 x 3

    DB Row
    70 x 15 x 3

    Pulldown
    100 x 15 x 3

    Rear Delt Raises
    10's x 20 x 2

    Tri Ext
    15 x 20 x 2

    BW Dip rep out
    33

    BB Curl
    70 x 20

    Hammer Curl
    30's x 20

    Leg Raise
    5 sets of 6

    Conditioning and stretching

    10/16

    Deadlift
    135 x 5 x 2
    215 x 5
    265 x 5
    320 x 3
    345 x 5
    395 x 5
    450 x 5

    Pause Squat
    135 x 3
    225 x 2
    325 x 3 x 5. Belt
