The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    This was a great meet. I had been sick all week (and am even sicker today ) but it didnt affect things. I hit my goals exactly and the other competitors were awesome. It was a very positive environment all and all. Here is how the lifting went:

    (Sorry no vids, only my brother was with me since my dad was out of state)

    Weighed in at 158 the night before and bloated up after.

    Squat warm-ups went well. Opened with the planned 380 and it felt good. 415 was my goal and it took it for my second. I hit it but it was a strain. Skipped my third.

    380 - hit
    415 - miss
    Skipped third


    Bench warm-ups felt fast. Opened with 220. Hit it fine but my ass come off the bench. Took it again for my second to avoid going up and bombing, and hit it fine (felt even easier the first time). I was told my ass was JUST on the bench the entire time, so thats something I need to work on with my set-up. Took 250 for a third and hit it. Sort of stalled/slowed down mid-way up but it got locked it out.

    220- miss
    220- hit
    250 - hit

    At this point I had bad stomach cramps and a headache but I once I started warm-ups for the deadlift and things were feeling light I was amped up again. I hit 380 for my 1st as planned and it felt fast. My goal was 420 and I took it for a second. Moved pretty good once I got it off the ground, but my sticking point is off the floor so it makes sense. Took 435 for a 3rd and it didnt budge. I was pretty shot mentally and physically at that point.

    380 - good
    420 - good
    435 -miss

    Total was 1085 @ 158lbs, with a 35lb total PR from 12 weeks of training. Exactly what I set out to do so no complaints.



    Next meet is December 10th. Ill write up my training soon, but its going to be similarily using the RTS training constructs, but the volume/intensity will be more block periodization themed approach.

    Post-Meet Training

    Basically the next 2 weeks are conditioning/fat loss before the 8-week meet training starts.


    This is yesterday's training. Everything was light (as you can tell by the RPEs) and I didnt push volume.

    1. Overheads (60 sec rests)
    2xbarx8
    70x5 7
    95x5 8

    2. Dips/Neutral Chins (60 sec rests)
    x10/x6 7.5/7.5
    x10/x6 8/8
    x10/x6 8/9

    3. High Row Machine (60 sec rest)
    70x15 8
    70x15 8

    4. Circuit (60 sec rest)
    65lb barbell was used for first 4 movements, BW for push-ups, and 30lb DB for snatch. 10 reps each movement. Once through = 1 set. I did 2 sets. Ill shoot for 3-4 next week.

    Rows-Cleans-Push Press-Squat-Push-up-DB Snatch

    5. ER/IR
    2 sets of 14/16




    Today I just did a light recovery workout with less volume that I normally would as the actual training volume isn't high right now.

    Today's Training

    Still taking it easy intensity wise. Upped volume a bit. Focus for 1 more week is conditioning/body comp.

    On a side note, seems like I strained my bicep doing RDLs on Thursday because I set to pins too high and had to heave it up a bit (stupid on my part). It will heal quick but didnt do pulling work today.


    1. Decline Bench (60 sec rest)
    155x5 7
    2x185x5 8

    Used a bulldog grip on these. Going to give it a try and see if it helps my bench.

    2. Neutral Grip Machine Press (60 sec rest)
    9 platesx10 7
    12 platesx10 8
    12 plates x10 8.5
    (regular grip) 8 platesx20 8.5

    3. Reverse Fly/Overhead Extensions (45 sec rests)
    15sx20/Mon Minix15 7/7
    25sx15/Mon Minix15 7.5/7.5
    25sx15/Mon Minix15 7.5/7.5

    4. Pull-aparts (30 sec rest)
    3 sets of 20 with Monster Mini

    5. Circuits (60 sec rest)
    10 reps each exercise, did 3 sets, used 35lb DB and 65lb Bar
    Swings - Cleans - Push Press - Rows - Push-ups - Snatches

    These were definitely better than last time. Conditioning improved quick.
