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 didn't go too crazy, I added 50lbs and did 12 trips x 50 feet, and then 50 burpees.

    It's good for recovery too, get's the blood flowin. I think I might screw and eye-hook on one end, to be able to do pulls too.
    Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

    I'm thinking I'll take 5 passes(30-40yrds) there and back. Low handles one way, and high handles back. Then add in something like burpess or jumping jacks in between.

    Raw Squat
    135x5
    225x5
    315x2
    365x3x5
    385x2x3

    Deadlifts w/ quaded Minis
    145x1
    245x1
    265x1
    305x3x1
    325x5x1

    Prowler- Took it out for the first time tonight. Took 4 total passes 20yrds each way (40yrds each pass) High handles one way, low handles on the way back. I used 90lbs plus prowler weight so 155lbs total. Wow did I get my ass kicked, Only took about 8-10mins to do 4 passes and that was all I could handle. My hips were fried after the 4th pass so I decided to call it quits. Everything from my toes to my glutes were pumped, even my shoulders had a pump going on.

    On another note, I'm starting to really hit the hard part of this squat routine. Each week is a grinder hopefully I can take it another 3 or so weeks before having to back off a bit. Sleep and recovery are going to be crucial the next few weeks.

    Don't count on ANY of that if you keep up that kind of Prowler work! LOL

    Sam, Tone is right I could not finish my 10 x 10 leg presses and only got to 7. But I'm wondering if this will give us more enduance to do more?
    I also still think that the accessory work is crucial on this raw squat routine. You need to do the leg presses and adductor and abductor sets to compliment it.
    Good Luck,
    Mike Ski

    Haha my glutes are really feeling it. I'm hoping this prowler is the accessory I need! You're next to jump on the prowler buddy!

    I'll give it a shot next week MIke but I had nothing left after that prowler work. I felt as though I really hit my hips pushing the prowler around. Oh well time will tell, that's for sure.

    That's all for today. Had a huge PR, all my raw squatting is giving me solid carryover into my equipped Squat. Excited to see the progress over the months. I haven't done reverse band deadlifts in awhile, and today is a reminder that I really need them. I love how the mimic your actually deadlift but targets your lockout in it's natural position unlike rack pulls.

    They sure did. I think we can do them in the smith machine. I'm gonna take a look today before we head over to Rocks. Thanks Tim, You looked pretty damn strong yourself. Those deads are gonna be key for us and our terrible lock outs. 700+ here we come!

    Thanks Dave. Everythings been great, got my training in check, as well as my diet. I'm expecting good things to happen later this year as long as I stay injury free (knock on wood).

    Nice work with the chains man, I think they're gonna be great for your raw strength. Lookin forward to seeing some huge numbers later on, especially with all this raw strength increasing lately.

    Ive had some crazy workouts lately, not a HUGE fan of volume but I talked with my coach and there's a method to the madness. One more week of it, and then I will be doing lower volume, more powerlifting, and more cardio.

    Curious to see how things work out. Whether he has me bench on Monday night or not, maybe I'll come to Philly with you guys just to help change plates and spot. Been too long man, feel so .. outta the loop lol

    Your bench is definitely headed in the right direction man. You're looking thicker and stronger every week now that you've stop starving yourself. Glad to see Tim push you last night. It was nice to see you get a little fired up. Chains were rough but you looked strong. I think we're all beat to **** today. Nice job!
