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?

    I hold 3 45s to my chest, if we had a taller hyper extension machine like i had in college i would do them holding the bar.


    Thanks on the squats, its a pretty good exercise for me im kinda built for it, and i like doing it, the deadlift is the exercise im regrooving to get back super strong at it

    had to cut this one a little short in the beginning but still got some good work done

    Bench Press
    225x3
    245x3
    265x3
    300x3
    335x2, had some more sets left but i stopped here, had a slight twinge in my shoulder, not in the joint more in the muscle, nothing too serious, ima just rest it, and give the barbell movements a break and do dumbbells to change it up, which kinda sucked because i threw the 335 up way easier than last week, i think i just lost some tightness somehwere in the lift which caused the slip up, no worries, ima rest it for like a week or two then go with heavy DB's for a while

    Medium grip semisupinated chinups
    6x5

    Glute ham raises
    5x5
    tried using a weight, but my lower hammy was not having it today..lol, so i just shortened up the bench a bit and made it harder that way and will build up to using a weight again

    T-bar rows
    160x5 5 sets

    Bulgarian Squats
    140x5 3 sets
    200x5 2 sets

    on the lighter sets i tried a new lower bench to allow me to get a tad lower and deeper stretch but i was having problems getting my back foot situated so i said screw it and loaded it up and went back to my higher bench

    Box Pistol
    5x5 on each leg,
    getting better with these, some odd reason im better on my left leg than my right but im working through it

    done and done
