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?

    Tone, Do you feel the speed bench has helped your raw bench?

    Im contemplating starting this back up.

    Yardage, I haven't done much speed work. I did some 531 which really brought my raw bench up big time (at one point I hit 440x7) but I rarely do much speed work anymore. I think it has it's place, but the bands really seem to put a big hurting on my wrists and elbows whenever I use them so I do it very sparingly. The guy to ask would be Vinny. 600 raw he's gotta be doing it right.

    Tore my left calf at work today. How awesome is that. Training on the squat finally starts going well and I get an injury carrying **** at work. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU**. It's pretty swollen and hurts like hell to walk on. I'll try to get some pics when I get home.

    Thanks CoCoa. The way Tim and I have to do them limits us a little. The gym we train at during the week doesn't have a power rack. So we're stuck trying to hand the weight off a pallet with a few matts on top of it. Not the greatest way of doing things. But we make due. I think I could get over 400 if we did these in a rack.

    Monster pull. Nice. Had you anything left?
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Thanks Cocoa.
    Flynn I probably would have been able to get 10lb more. I think I would have been good for even more than that had I not spent a ton of energy on the 405x10.
    Thanks Brian. Everything but my squat really seems to be coming along. Calf is fine. Not sure what happened to it. It was balled up, hurt like hell, felt really bad for the first day, but by Saturday it felt fine. Don't know what I did. It does seems to be balled up more than the right one now, but it doesn't hurt.

    Dude... you sure that calf is torn and balled up? and not just swollen? I can see ripping some high deadlift reps with that, but a full-gear ME squat?

    Nice deadlift. Conventional raw deadlifts are just too badass... i did them myself tonight for the second time in three years. Got one less rep than you did...
