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?

    What's up izzy? good job tonite. Way to challenge and push yourself on that last set of bench. Your form is looking good, and strength is coming around for you. Make sure you do some speed work this week and focus on exploding the weight up.(moving the weight as fast as possible without letting your form suffer)

    Overall felt real good tonight, I wasn't dropping the weights evenly, something I need to work on, that last grinder was fun tho
    The one thing I don't understand is how I am so slow on every rep, I am exploding with everything I have, the strength is there, its like that with all my other exercises too, could that be due to being new to these types of weights?

    Monster set man. Once we get you some more power and speed, the weights will sky rocket.


    I cant believe those guys had the nerve to walk in the way, when im OBVIOUSLY taking a video. Can someone be THAT ******ed?? I wish they said somethin back.

    Way to push. Another pr good stuff. have good holiday. Keep Dave out of the gym next week. When you video tape someone squatting try to get more of a side profile so we can see his depth, if his knees are moving alot, and if he is leaning to far forward or to straight up. There how was that for some negative bashing b***hes.

    Some great negative feedback there Tim, lol thanks though, I'm pumped about this, my last video I could have grinded out another rep, this time I went for ita and to my surprise it worked...

    I haven't been on here in what feels like a lifetime - because I'm a lazy ****, I took off my deload week, been sick all week, and went to the APA meet on Saturday with the crew, Dave ****ing killed it man, great ****.

    07 December 2009

    Bench
    Warm-up
    165 X 5
    190 X 5
    215 X 11 (felt heavy, my feet were all over)

    Band bench double mini's
    135 X 5
    135 X 5
    155 X 5
    135 X 3
    135 X 3

    Ran the river(I dont remember what that was but it was ****ing terrible)
    @ 135

    Icing the shoulder, everyone looked good tonight, felt good to get under some weight I can't wait till I get a meet setup and planned, watching Dave get such good numbers really helped me, I want it more.

    Nice set Viz. Looks like your dead is starting to come along nicely. 15 reps is freaking cardio!
