The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    This is a deload week so nothing too exciting going on. I won't post any training sessions unless someone just wants to see them or has a question.

    Saturday will be a regular event day (with the exception of delaoding on log clean and press). So this session will be posted.

    That's a ton of work, and with all the PRs you must be wiped out. Nice job. I need to get me a log some day and make a new sandbag so I can have some fun workouts like this again.

    Thanks man! I was/am exhausted!

    The log is great. I started strongman training and first used it back in around Jan. It is one of my favorite lifts now.

    Sandbags are great also! I use one often. I have one at home and one at the facility i work at.

    Yeah, that's what I thought. Haha.

    My competition is getting close so I can't afford to slack in my training.

    Still not feeling 100%. It was in the 20's this morning and we usually train in a garage and outside. We decided to load up some of our equipment and train indoors at the facility I work. Had a decent session but started feeling wore down fairly quick (due to being sick).

    Trained some reps with the #220 and #240 stone. Nothing too exciting. Feeling a little beat up and my left bicep is bothering me a little again. Kept volume low today.

    I plan on hitting Incline Log for reps tomorrow.

    Then 18 inch deadlift and farmers hold on Thursday.

    Friday will be off.

    Saturday some log technique and maybe (depends) the #220 stone for technique.

    The competition is getting close.

    Just got in from the competition in St. Louis. It was the NAS "Hope For The Holidays".

    I weighed in at 198.6. I competed in the Open 200 class. The competition went great.

    Max Log I opened at 260. Next attempt was good for 280. My 3rd attempt I hit a 20 pound PR for 300 pounds. I tied for 1st on this event.

    The second event was Famers hold. I held them for 56 seconds or so. Don't remember the exact time. I finished 1st on this event.

    The third event was 18 inch deadlift. I opened at 600 pounds and it flew up. I jumped to 700 pounds and pulled it also (for a 100 pound PR). My 3rd attmept was a miss for 750 pounds. I took 4th on this event.

    The fourth event was Incline log with 220 pounds. The incline was a lot higher than I had been training. I hit 15 reps on this event. I took 2nd place. The first place guy hit 17 reps.

    The fifth event was stones. 200, 220, 240, 260, 300 loaded to a 52 inch platform. I loaded the first 4 stones in 16 seconds. I missed the 300 stone load barely, twice. I took 2nd place on this event.

    Overall I tied for 1st place. In the instance of a tie they look back at your finishes. I had 1 event wins and 1 event win tie. The guy I tied for the overall with had 2 event wins and 1 event win tie. Since he had more event wins than me he took the overall.

    I was very happy to with 2nd place out of a very competitive class of 6 competitors.

    I also won some cash for my 300 log clean and press. It was tied for the best max log of the day.

    I will be posting some video up later.

    That was awsome Chase. Congratulations. It sounds like your PRs came along at a great time.

    Getting back into some lifting this week after the competition. My plan is just some non-structured training this week. Starting my next training block next week with the goals of getting stronger, more powerful and bigger. Also, bringing up my deadlift/pulling strength. I placed 4th on the 18 inch deadlift at the last meet. That is unacceptable.

    Powerclean
    95/5
    135/5
    165/5
    185/5
    215/4 (+ 1 high pull - missed the catch on my last rep)

    Chin ups (slow negative, full ROM, pause top and bottom)
    BW/5
    25/5 x 3

    s/s

    Close grip bench press
    135/5
    185/5
    225/5
    265/5

    DB Lateral Raises (short rest 45-60s)
    25/10
    30/10
    35/10 x 3
