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?

    Here is a version of the Haka where NZ take on AUS in Rugby League (my favorite game).

    This was one of the first times the opposing teams advanced so it was pretty cool to watch live.

    The chorus is: It is death! It is death! It is life! It is life! It is death! It is death! It is life! It is life!

    Haulin Steel.........2 days early.

    Ultra wide (feet 2.5" past plates each side) off 2" mats-
    135 x 4
    225 x 4
    315 x 2
    405 x 2
    Add suit
    495 x 1
    545 x 1
    585 x 1 VIDEO
    635 x 1 10lb PR left some in the tank VIDEO

    Squat raw to 11" box close stance-
    135 x 5
    185 x 5
    225 x 5
    275 x 5
    315 x 5

    Had not done ultra wides in a while and have not done any specific work for the hips so I was not sure how this would go but the ab work has paid off here.

    Very hard to get a good fast start so it makes for a slower pull than if you had more leg drive with feet closer..........this is just what I needed.

    More to do!

    Ha ha a few idiots there but the Cop is funny!

    Extra work.

    Weighted abs-
    45lb at chest x 15 x 4 sets

    Sidebends-
    70s x 20 x 4 sets

    Straight arm pulldowns-
    120 x 15 x 4 sets

    Half ball abs-
    15 x 1 set

    Choosening between three work-outs for Friday or Saturday depending.

    - 2" defict against mini bands 505 (newest PR of the 3)
    - Brief free squat 5s

    - 1.25" blocks against purples 585
    - Brief free squat 5s

    - 6" blocks against greens 585 (oldest PR of the 3)
    - Leg press

    Fun choosing between them, they all have previous PRs as you can see so either way ill be going for +10lb.

    Yeah I think ill hit the mini band deficit deads next week.

    Tomorrow ill go for the block pulls against greens like Hayden said (checked and its 7.5" blocks 585+200) was the old PR......should beat that no probs.

    Resting up and refueling I was smashed at 5 today but now Im ok , work is busy as heck doing 5 1/2 days but the money is good and its not hard on the body.

    Going to try hit 224 tonight before bed.

    Thanks for all the support down here it means a lot.

    Thanks guys!! Yeah the Haka (it's The Haka btw) is pretty cool......some hate it....I love it.

    Forgot to take green bands to gym.....

    Weighted abs-
    8

    Sumo off 7.5" blocks-
    225 x 2
    315 x 2
    405 x 2
    495 x 2 quickest raw double to date
    Add suit straps loose
    585 x 2
    635 x 1 easy as but mid back felt strange so I stopped here VIDEO
    505 x 16 piece of cake, ran out of breath ha ha VIDEO

    Back raises-
    12 with 12 sec hold

    8" Deficit SLDL kettlebell-
    98lb bell x 12

    Calve raises-
    15/12/10 rest pause set

    Leg extensions-
    30

    Done, first time in a while I stopped well short of a max but it was the smart thing to do.

    505x16 may sound cool but I dont really care about high reps and they are high blocks although it pumped the shit out of my back!

    So much to work on I just want to get back into the gym!

    Strong pulls big Nick! Love the vids. Looking large mate.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
