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?

    that 860 was a nice squat, your squat has really taken off. I am sure you will get that 900 really soon.

    that vid is the reason why all meets should use straps/chains. noway in hell spotters are getting that.

    missed training from moving new equipment to the gym yesterday so pulled a bit today.

    pull day

    felt a little better than i figured i would, slept like a log last night!

    had on a loose uno ply suit straps down toward the end but i'm pretty sure if it did anything, it was throw me off.

    worked up to 550x1 conventional with head in my ass technique. feel good for around 625ish give or take a few hundred pounds.

    no accessory - off to write another paper

    ME squat

    intended to take it easy today as i've been wiped out from from finals for the last week. the rest from friday must have helped.

    naked lifting done by crazy people up to 425x2
    briefs on - no knee wraps
    515x2
    605x2
    655x2
    705x2 pretty decent pr though it seems a bit high on video. certainly missed the confidence to ride it hard down into the hole that the wraps give me.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MC3-o5lDWdc

    close stance on toes leg press
    2 plates x20
    4 plates 2x20

    ham curls
    3x20

    done, good night for everyone!

    suit straps down
    750x1
    wraps
    835x2 both to depth and easy

    925x1 partial - straps were a bit tight so i fought that mostly instead of the weight. went a lil over halway down and just popped it back. came up so fast i lost balance at the top.

    wearing less gear and actually doing better, wtf

    thank ya suh

    highland games in rocky mount

    22lb braemar - 24'4 default pr - first throw was around 22'0 and eric told me to not look at the stone after i let it go and got an extra 2 1/2 feet from it apparently. never done this before but it wasn't as bad as i thought. def made for the big guys though!

    open 16lb stone
    33'11 - game pr. went back to shuffle tech. finished through much better on these than i have been from the same advice. still suck at transferring weight forward, should be fighting to stay behind the trig like crazy and i'm usually perfectly centered. should be closing in on 40 ft within a year i hope.

    56 dist
    22'10 game pr - single spin, nothin real special.

    28 dist
    47'1 - around the pr, still single spin.

    heavy hammer
    59'10 - once again missing the A mark of 60 by > < that much

    17-18lb sheaf
    22ft - i went ******ed for a bit and had to take 3 attempts at 18 feet. heard advice given to someone else and it clicked with me, stay long and smooth. had a height error and jumped to 22 feet instead of 20ft and i made it on my first attempt. close but no cigar on 26ft. actually had this event won til thorbjorn from iceland came in late and beat me on less misses.

    56 wob
    11ft - tied pr - standing, will be spinning very soon. tried it once on a warm up, was told it looked good and it felt great, just need some reps with it.

    overall a good day for me but still have a light years to travel to be decent and i'm on a vespa.
