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?

    Been feeling run down all day. Not much in the way of energy. It was hard dragging myself to the power rack. I got my prescribed reps on box squats and decided to reward myself with a little fun.

    I got a pair of Centurion Briefs at the beginning of December and have yet to use them. Today, I was going to bust my cherry - so to speak. I didn't think there was much chance of me getting down to 12", so I upped the box to 13" and gave it a go.

    My first attempt was high. I did a couple reps with nothing on my back to show myself I could hit the depth and my next set at 315 was cake. Squatting with briefs is a bit different.

    My left bicep is pretty tweaked. I used a double overhanded grip with wrist straps to take the strain of my bicep. I wouldn't have been able to deadlift otherwise. At the moment, grip isn't my problem. Raw strength is. I got some decent reps in and that was what really mattered.

    Despite feeling wiped out, I was able to hike just a bit north of vag and get some work down. Pops would be proud.
