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?

    Nice squats man, you are really starting to get up there in weight. Just make sure you keep your form tight, because squats are no joke. They will f*** you up if you're not careful with your form and you agressively try to add weight. I speak through experience.

    Nice PR man! Although you hit a PR, I'm thinking you started too high or you should back off the percentages to the lighter ones because your reps are too low. I was hitting 6+ reps on the 5/3/1 week and I know jbrint0k hit a lot higher than that consistently. Just a thought though.

    thanks for the help bro. Does Jim recomend taking 10% off or 10lbs off your true 1rm before starting the cycle? I took off 15lbs. I will go with the lighter percentages next time. I think i might max next week also if i feel im up to it instead of the deload, any thoughts?

    He says to take 10-15% off your true max and then calculating the percentages from there. You can max if you want, but he says that if you are going to max, doing it on your 5/3/1 day. Also, he suggests that you don't max that often. My suggestion is to wait a couple more cycles before you max.

    Ok thanks. Ill recalculate my training percentages and i wont max for another cycle or two. Ill just skip the deload and next week will be the first wave with lower percentages.

    Also this past ME squat was the last in Matt Rhodes Raw squat routine so on monday im going to max on deads and then possibly run the routine again starting in two weeks because it boosted my max 20lbs and i seem to be able to consistently squat 225lbs even on a bad day. That used to be my absolute max.

    Yeah, I agree with Gator. I started with 90% of a max I had done maybe two weeks before I started the program, and I was hitting 8+ reps all the time, even on the 5/3/1 days. That being said, you don't necessarily need to be hitting 8+ or anything, I just think the higher reps work well with this program. Nonetheless, a PR is a PR. Great work, bud!
