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?

    Also had an arm workout that I missed posting. I have been weighing between 238-240 every morning and around 242-244 at night. I have been pretty consistent eating for about two months now which is really good for me. It has been showing too. My numbers are close to my pr's and I am weighing less. My best bench I hit when I was 257lbs. My pr for squats I think I was 260+. My deadlift is my only pr I'm not close to that was done at a lighter weight and that's my fault because I haven't been pulling. Speaking of not pulling, my reason for it has been I don't like the bars at my normal gym and I realized that is one of the saddest excuses for not doing something that I have ever heard, so no more of that. I'm just gonna pull and when I pull with a bar I like it will be that much better.

    Seems like this is more than 50% diet, so missing a few meals will definitely take its toll.

    You getting bigger, faster, and stronger these days is awesome - carry on bro!

    Ehh, not what I wanted. I know my strength won't keep going up while I'm losing weight though, so I'll get over it.

    Just got back from vacation. Didn't miss any workouts, actually I did an extra workout. I also finally benched 405. It went up really fast and I contemplated going for 415, but I was happy with that for now. That was my only goal recently so I'm pretty pumped about hitting it. All my other numbers were pretty typical of what I usually do. Kept squats no heavier then 405 since I didn't have a belt. Didn't go over 495 on deads. On my other bench day I stopped at 365x5.
