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?

    Really good session bro. I wouldve came over if I knew you guys were squatting last night. I feel you on the OT. The city kicked our asses the last few days standing out in this sh1t for hours at a time. Just zaps your motivation to do anything.

    Raw bench again since we stayed at the local fitness center.
    bar x10
    135x5
    225x5
    315x3
    365x2
    385x2
    405x2
    425x2
    440x1(went for second but nothing left)

    pull ups sets of 10,8, and 8
    lat pushdowns 3 x10
    tri push downs 3x15

    Feeling tired and crappy this week. I have been having these issues in lat right behind shoulders(like across shoulder blades). Slowing some of my benching down but usually hurts the worst for next 2 days.
    Going to miss Saturday training again this weekend do to family stuff, so may train on sunday. Have to see if i can shake my cold by then.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL

    you were about 3/4 of an inch from having that second rep at 440 up yesterday and it was nice and stable the whole time, it wont be long before you get that one easy. Pile on all the extra hours you've been working with the snow and its not hard to see why you're tired. I appreciate all the help you guys give me especially on squat days.

    Jesus dude, big squats and benches going on in here. I can't imagine how strong you'd be if you had a desk job.

    Felt ok tonite. My raw strength is way up right now. Shirt is still little loose, can get it on myself. Going to try boiling the shirt this week to see if I can shrink it(per Tone and Rock). Weight was 260 tonite.little too high(need to loose 5lbs). If that doesn't work might order something new.

    Thank you to both Brians. Today's training didn't go quite the way i planned. got thrown a couple of curve's and I never really handled curves well.

    speed pulls
    315x3x6sets

    wide grip pulldowns 3x10
    lat pushdowns 3x10
    db row 70lb db x 35 for both arms.

    That was that. Not very motivated , nothing good going on, but not going to worry. Planning a meet for end of Feb or beginning of March so not to worried about access day, as long as I hit main days big and hard.(haha I said big and hard). weight was 257 today. that's a plus
