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's awesome Tone, good luck!!! I'm definitley looking forward to see what you're gonna put up. Your training has been looking good, just gotta go get it done on the platform. Is it just you lifting or some others from your crew?

    What's up buddy? doing great, can't wait to see you hit this meet. after some thought thinking your squat is going great. still have 5 or 6 weeks left taking it up 25 to 50 lbs a week is smart. don't blow ur load to early like I've been doing. save the big numbers for meet day, who cares what or where gym lifts are. Form looks right on. You've been handling super heavy **** every workout, so them pulling you back a little on one lift is good.

    100 Pushup Routine
    21 25 21 15(Died here)

    Felt the last few weeks catch up with me today. I think 2 weeks in the shirt and one week out is what I'm sticking with. I've also decided to throw out the 100 Pushup program. I really enjoyed it, but it's getting to the final weeks and probably doing more harm than good at this point. I get scared to take down weeks now because I'm afraid to lose focus like I did before but I it's been 2 days and I think I did need the downtime. Big squat day coming this Saturday so I'll just keep things easy till then. Saturday I'll be ready to work. Back at it on the bench next Monday as well.

    Uh, thanks? That was a terrible day though man. LOL. To go from a 765x1 week, then a 725x2 week to an almost kill myself with 635 week...definitely not a highlight. I needed the down week and I'd like to really push next week and go for 755x2.

    I know it wasn't your best, I was more impressed with you hitting 315x15 after all that benching. To me that was bad ass!!!!!

    Congrats on the baby boy!!!!

    Not a great day for squatting on Saturday.
    I have some major mental hurdles I need to overcome.

    It happens to us all, you are not alone dude. No doubt you'll get back into the groove just in time to kill it the next meet.
