The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    threw again on sunday but back was torched from pulls so nothing real good.

    tried to raw squat monday but quit at 475x2 (with a wrap). felt terrible so i went home

    skipped upper on wed and played my bass all night

    pulled off 3 in blocks again friday
    675x1 easy with hook grip
    715x0.5 came off the floor just not enough to get it over my knees.

    ripped calluses off both pinky's but healing well

    oh also had 4 beers between my first warm up and my 675 pull, yuengling does a body good.

    monday ME squats

    skipped and played bass again. got in a quick arm workout for the hell of it.

    Night of the Living Dead results - 6th of 25

    had a blast as always at alex's meet. this one had a completely different feel though. all the hype actually came true this year and it was a great great show. bolton was a huge crowd draw and the competition was exciting! Meeting andy bolton was pretty cool and he was actually super humble and very nice.

    my day went like this
    normal warm up
    135 conv and sumo
    225 same
    315x2 sumo and hook grip on out
    briefs and belt on
    405x1
    500x1
    565x1

    opener
    635 - good - lil wobbly at the top
    2nd
    675 - good - felt smoother, got in better position. hook still felt solid and i knew i was getting 7 for sure
    3rd
    705 - XXX - i was sadly mistaken haha. was really surprised when it just stopped at about knee level. not too dissapointed though since this is the first time i've pulled anything heavy in gear with a hook grip. also didn't put my suit on backwards like normal and thats how i usually miss when do that. oh well.

    had a great time!

    Meet day - RPS 6-29-12 Shit turd, pennsylvania

    did a good job fighting off the fever and head and chest congestion for the amount of time i had. emily stayed on me with the meds and such. weighed in at 206lbs

    squat
    1st 840 good - deepest round of squats i've ever seen judged at ANY meet, including usapl. i was amazed but everybody stepped up their game and got down passed 2nd and 3rd.

    bench
    1st 485 good - felt good
    2nd 520 miss - right shoulder crapped out on me, speed off the chest was great but can't lock anything out when my shoulder is out of place. very disappointing.
    3rd 520 miss - same thing, just couldn't recover.

    deadlift - felt very dead energy wise, sickness was catching up with me.
    1st 635 good - felt light but didn't move as quick as i would like.
    2nd 685 good - nice 5lb pr here, tore pinky callus on right hand and finally got to use the taping technique for that in a meet.
    3rd 700 good- very satisfying pull. mentally waved as i went by several sticking points that i had missed this weight at in the past as i cruised by them all to lockout.

    2025 total @ 206lbs qualifies for xpc semi finals and won best lifter of the meet.

    Just saw you were a member here in the last man thread and put together who you were. Glad you didn't take me too seriously warming up for the deadlifts. Nice pulling displayed. Sure you will get the bench worked out with the shoulder next time.

    enjoyed every minute with you guys tim. handoffs were great, my shoulder being retarded is all that happened. i'll buy a new one one day.

    thanks, i'm really excited about getting back to real tight judging, always prided myself on being prepared to go exactly where any judge wants me to go on meet day. it'll be nice to have that be a stronger factor in the outcome of the totals again.

    ME squat on saturday night

    had a 2 hour drive to asheville night before judging the raw pro am this weekend. had some back spasms on the car ride which never helps squatting...

    raw up to 435x1
    jack briefs
    525x3
    615x2
    705x2 a touch high but every time in the briefs is better than the last. they're still very very tight but getting close to perfect.

    conventional and sumo RDL's
    few sets of 8-10
