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?

    I looked through your training a little bit. Do you have an injury that you're not benching?

    Also, if you're prioritizing upper back work like you mentioned in my log, I think heavy shrugs and barbell rows would be much more helpful than just upright rows and machine work (unless you have some kind of injury that also prevents this right now).
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Thanks Tom, BC and April!! NYE should be spent on the water in the sun.......Ill post some pics of how its done Sydney style.


    April, yep left elbow is pretty fuct.

    I have done a ton of shrugs but always slacked on the barbell rows a little, I can do both no dramas.
    The upright rows are not common in my training, more just for a change.
    I will be doing barbell rows (thanks for the reminder) and shrugs from next week.
    I appreciate advice from ANYONE but to get advice from a top lifter is fantastic!!
    Thanks!

    Hammys and glutes are sore from the raw squats!

    Thanks guys!!!!!


    Haulin Steel...........week 3..................and some extra pulling ha ha.

    Sumo against purples weights on 1.25" mats (pretty much sink in to the ground)-
    135 + purples x 1
    225 + purples x 1
    315 + purples x 1
    405 + purples x 1
    Add suit
    495 + purples x 1
    545 + purples x 1
    585 + purples x 1
    610 + purples x 1 5lb PR

    Sumo from 2" deficit-
    225 x 1
    315 x 1
    365 x 1
    Add briefs
    405 x 1
    455 x 1
    495 x 1 miss ha ha lost balance, felt light
    525 x 1 old PR
    550 x 1 25lb PR fuck yeah........I suck at sumo deficits so this felt good

    Speed pulls 2" deficit conventional-
    235 x 3 x 5 sets (1 min between sets or less)

    Back raises-
    23lb ball at chest x 25
    23lb ball at chest x 25

    Weighted abs-
    5lb x 15
    23lb x 15
    23lb x 15


    Added the second movement because I have wanted a deficit PR for 10 weeks or so and next week is a deload.

    Everything except that one set felt good today although the top sets were hard.

    Leg drive has improved.

    RSU.

    Great squattin' to open up the new with there Nick!!

    Wishing you a strong and successful new year. Lets see that 800lber
    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

    Thanks Gazzy!! Good fun day.

    Thanks Tank! Yeah plenty of pulling, my GPP has come up rather quick from adding volume.

    Thanks Coke!! Just learnt how to add the photos lol......more to come.

    Thanks BC!! Yeah new years is pretty cool down here, funny place Australia being that the first people to land here came on 11 ships in 1788 (mostly convicts) yet the crime rates are low and the ecomony very strong.
    NZ (where Im from) can not even try to compete when it comes to beaches, weather, girls, atomopshere, life style, economy, retirement funds etc etc.

    Thanks Justin!! A big and fantastic year to you too big man, 800 is years away bro but thats half the fun.
