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?

    Take a video from the side or front sometime to look at the form better. Looks fine from behind, but hard to tell if the bar is close enough or many other things from behind that you can't see. Looked real fast and easy though.

    Thats guys and girls!!!!!

    I was pleased to have kept some speed since it's been a while........2 weeks and I should be super quick.

    The idea of pulling in some form from the floor (speed, rep etc) but maxing on different variations is working well, very well.
    I find it fun and at the same time productive to have tons of different pull varitions to do speed/ rep/ max work.

    April I dont really want my face on Youtube lol.

    In breaking news NEW JOB! Sign contract tomorrow yay......6 mins from home to the new jobs door.
    This job should benifit my training a lot, less stress and less hours.

    6 minute commute to get to work in the morning. So jealous... I hate city rush-hour traffic and ours probably isn't even that bad compared to some places.

    GL on the new job, and that's some crazy crazy band tension.

    +1 with what April said though. Watch for the knees unlocking at lockout since that'd be 3 reds in a meet. great speed though!

    F**KING EPIC!!!

    That awkward moment when scary deadlift guy appears in the gym wearing a wrestling mask....

    I reckon youre good for more than 645 off the deck btw
    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

    No mask yet.


    Haulin Steel....................slightly overtrained in the lower back but thats part of the plan.....deload soon enough.


    4" blocks against monsters (75lb bands)-
    145 + MM x 2
    235 + MM x 1
    325 + MM x 1
    415 + MM x 1
    505 + MM x 1
    Add suit
    555 + MM x 1
    595 + MM x 1 VIDEO wider stance........grip bar very uneven
    645 + MM x 1 VIDEO comp stance again 5lb PR

    Floor sumo comp stance-
    325 x 1
    375 x 1
    415 x 1
    465 x 1
    505 x 8 PR by 2 reps, zero bouncing

    Back raises-
    30 with 5 sec hold on last squeezing glutes

    SLDL holding kettlebell-
    44lb x 70 reps


    Block pulls did not feel strong so I got the 5lb PR and shut it down.

    Was not planning on repping the 505 but I just kept going cause it was easy (straps very loose so I can beat it easy next time), holding breath was really hard though.

    Really loving the floor pulls/ form work after maxing it's fucking awesome for building strength.



    4" blocks, Monster bands.
