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?

    Haulin Steel...........on song today.

    Pulls off 1.25" mats against greens (200lb bands)-
    135+ bands x 2
    225+ bands x 1
    315+ bands x 1
    405+ bands x 1 easy
    Add suit
    455+ bands x 1
    495+ bands x 1 fast VIDEO best ever at that weight band combo
    545+ bands x 1 fast
    575+ bands x 1 miss, head down
    585+ bands x 1 10lb PR VIDEO!!

    5" deficit SLDL beltless-
    225 x 5 x 2 sets all reset reps.....really love these when done explosivley

    Back raises-
    10lb hat x 15
    64lb bell at chest x 15

    Weighted abs-
    15

    Bar was in finger tips on the last set was made the lock-out tricky but the weight was fine, that was a big PR for me so I am very very happy right now.

    Like I said before once I hit 600+200 off 1.25" mats I will try from floor.....once I hit 635+200 from floor I will treat myself to a deadlift bar.

    Speed and strength off floor is way up and I dont really even know why but I can tell you Im loving it.

    Thanks B&T, Tank, Coke and Hayden!!!!! I know it takes time to follow people logs and I appreciate it.

    99% sure Im going to buy some jack briefs size 42 (Ano says to buy tight).......look like they would be good to pull sumo in.

    My manager who was demoted has resigned from work and Im going to be working 6 days for the rest of the year but Im staying positive in that area along with training which I feel I have reached the next level.

    The 800 quest.

    More work.

    Thanks Coke!! Got the mid and upper back pumped!

    Thanks Rob!! Bar was in finger tips by the top which made it tough but actually the weight was ok, always get that crazy twitch at the top lol.......I enjoy fighting it out a lot.

    Good question I was actually thinking about it just now, I will stick to pulling with bands comp stance and pull straight weight ultra wide also.
    I will pull 640 against 120lb bands for a big PR then test.

    Thanks Marcus and Coke!! Big day for me and my family.

    In other breaking news I had my boss briefs taken in as they were too loose even to pull in.....used to slid on in 20 seconds, now takes 5 mins to get on which is tight enough for pulls I think and not too tight.

    Assistance work tomorrow.

    Pantless deadlifts, that's dangerous. Could rub the wrong way. You're gonna need your little buddy on your wedding night bro, haha. Solid session man.

    Perhaps it's just me, but shouldn't SLDL be with a deficit for more ROM? I generally do all my SLDL work on a 4" block. Hmm.

    Regardless, amazing work as always, Nick.
