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?

    Didn't get in my Accessory workout today. Running low on gas and I'm broke, so I think I'll just rest up today and hit deadlift hard tomorrow.

    Thu- Deadlift day

    Thursday 11/5/09 Deadlifts(WK 6)

    Elliptical- 5mins

    Warm-Up
    Leg Extensions: 35x25, 50x25
    Seated Leg Curls: 35x25, 50x25
    Pull Downs: 80x12, 90x12

    Reverse-Band Deadlifts(green bands)- Conv
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3
    365x1 added bands here
    405x1
    455x1(Briefs, Belt)
    495x1(Max DL suit/straps up, Briefs, Belt)

    545x1, hitched a little on this set so I'm not counting it, if not for the hitch this would have been a PR

    (That was it, felt tired today so I didn't do any assistance work. I think all the heavy lifting is catching up with me, so I will probably take a deload week next week.)

    Didn't go do declines today. Cut my finger at work today, came home from work in a *****ed up mood also, argueing with the wife all day and just didn't feel like hitting the gym.

    I really think I did a smart thing with taking off from Friday's workout. Because I have been feeling really drained this weekend. I will be back into the swing of things next week.

    Next week will be my last heavy Bench and Dead workout, I'm thinking of maybe lowering my deadlift opener but we will see how things go. Then the following Monday I will work up to my squat opener and maybe 2nd attempt with the reverse bands, Bench opener, and then some Rack Pulls on deadlift day, then rest up and make weight for the BIG DAY!

    Thursday 11/19/09 Deadlifts(WK 8)

    Recumbent Bike- 5mins

    Warm-Up
    Leg Extensions: 35x25, 50x25
    Seated Leg Curls: 35x25, 50x25
    Pulldowns: 80x12, 90x12

    Deadlifts- Sumo
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3
    365x1(Briefs)
    405x1(Max DL suit/straps down, Briefs, Belt)
    455x1(Max DL suit/straps up, Briefs, Belt)planned Opener, easy
    480x1(Max DL suit/straps up, Briefs, Belt) sumo PR!! this is my planned 2nd attempt and also my previous conv. stance PR. And it felt alot easier with sumo than it did with the conventional stance

    Assistance Work
    Sumo Stiff-Legged DL's 2x5
    DB Lunges 3x6(each leg)
    1-Legged Leg Curls 3x12(each leg)
    Calf work
    Ab work

    (Very good workout, I deadlifted 480 about 4yrs ago at a meet for a 3rd attempt with a conventional stance. Ever since that meet I haven't been able to go heavy like that for some reason. I think alot of it was due to overtraining my lower back by going heavy with a conventional stance every single week in and week out. I switched to a sumo stance and everything seemed to start to pull togeather with deadlifts. With sumo I still feel it in my lower back but not near as much with conventional and I feel it alot in my hips, hamstrings, and upper back. It started getting stronger and slowly building back up. The way it felt tonight I am gonna pull 500+!!!!!)
