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?

    Good day today. I tried out an Overkill shirt on that was alittle big on me, slipped myself in, in about 10seconds. I really really liked the shirt, the material felt like a cross between the rage and sdp (softer then a rage but stiffer then a phenom). It didn't really feel like either though. Sometime around april I'm going to get one made that fits me.

    For the first time in weeks my hips didn't hurt. I absolutely love the way that felt. The culprit seemed to be squatting and pulling twice a week. Now I'm rotating which one I'm going to do twice that week. Made a big difference. knees have been sore but the light leg presses are getting the blood flowing and making things better.

    Had a pretty good day, felt like I was handling the 405 alot easier then before. I tried pulling in the suit and briefs for the first time and really didn't like it. Next week I'm going to pull in just the suit and see how it compares. I had way to much trouble getting to the bar and felt like I couldn't sit enough. I think I'll have better results in just the suit with the straps cranked tighter, like I used too. New meet date is Feb. 20th 2010. Here I come Elite! I'll be coming out with my guns blazing.

    Great night, starting to feel good in the shirt again, hopefully next week I can handle close to the same weight but to a lower board. Everyone looked strong. We had a few of the guys back now that the holidays are over and the atmosphere was great. Can't wait to see what the next few weeks bring.

    Decline sit ups (super setted these with the side crunches)
    45x3x12

    Side Crunches
    100x3x10

    Time to cut back on the volume and focus on the main movements. This will be my last week raw squatting untill after my meet. I'm now 4ish weeks out from my meet on Feb. 20th. My weight is pretty good, I could actually afford to gain a few pounds if I can. Hopefully with the cut back in volume I'll pork up 5lbs and have a nice easy cut to 220lbs.

    Thanks Tim, I'm not even going into the gym on thursday from here on out. Cutting back to 3 days and 1 of the days is going to be rehab/light upper accessory just to keep the blood flowing to all the joints.

    That would be awesome, we sure could use the help. I think it's just Tim, Tone and I going up. Both Tim and I are competing, so Tones going to have his hands full dealing with us.
