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?

    Lower Trans is done. Will unload next week as I've gone 7 weeks of high volume and the body is screaming for a reduction. Skipped pulls due to the left adductor feeling odd again and how hard pulls felt earlier in the week. All the Olys/Pause Sq/Front Sqs have made a huge difference in my squat technique. Much more upright coming out of the hole.

    Will most likely do a push/pull on Apr 28th. I will test my squat in some fashion 2 weeks out than cut the low bar work to rest the back for the meet. Strongly thinking about doing raw nationals in July if I can fit it around finishing/job/moving which will be very very rough.

    Transmutation phase is over. Will unload sq/dl and bench this week then do a realization phase. Will do comp paused bench 2x a week, one at high rpe, one low at rpe. Supplementals are dropped and assistance work will be maintenance/recovery heavy.

    BW is starting to plummet from drop in volume despite increased calories, will monitor as I want to do my mock meet at 222.0 (below what I'd weigh after a weighin as I squat at a meet). From video, I'm much more upright as I drive up. However, the old issue of using all knee extension, then driving hips forward to lockout is apparent. I still tilt my upper body forward to shift the load to my hamstrings after knee extension. I will squat next week in Chucks to see if the excess heel is the reason. I think this is an issue that remains from years of box squatting and free squatting in chucks and being so hip dominant. I could also increase my eccentric speed and sit down a bit more instead of sitting back in the heels.

    NG Pullup - 2 x 6 SS Front/Side Raise - 2 x 10 each - 20s

    SS Cardio x 30 mins (Setting 4)

    Bench felt great and video looked great. Went with a strict hold for the start command and each rep of the 3 and 2 rep sets were paused strictly. The reduction in pressing makes the difference.
