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?

    * Squatting was fun today. It was over 100 degrees in the gym, so it was kind of hard to find the energy, but everyone got it done last night. My PR was 860 with black bands, so I decided to go for a weight PR and lighter bands and nailed it. Feels good.

    B1. Tricep pressdowns:
    red bands for 3 sets of 10

    And then left to go tubing on the river. This was an awesome decision in that it was very relaxing and fun. It was also a bad decision in that my normally very white skin turned in a very deep red color and it hurts to this day.

    Comments:
    * Saturday was a quick session since I had to hurry to get to the river. I can see why people in Texas like floating on the river. A good way to cool off when it's 105 degrees out!

    * Monday was ok. I wasn't able to wrap my knees due to the crazy sunburn I got on Saturday. Also, when I was about to squat, a bunch of the neighbor's kids ran into the gym after some loose dogs. That kinda messed up my mindset, but I still almost got the weight nonetheless.

    * My weight was up to 285 after the insane amount of grilling done this weekend. Funny how trying to lose weight never results in my weight moving in the right direction.

    * So... I was going in to today thinking I would attempt 405. It didn't even cross my mind that 365 would be hard. But I missed the first one and came back and got it on the second one. My shoulders are apparently really messed up though because my left arm was lagging my right by quite a bit. I need to start doing a lot more shoulder rehab work...

    * On the plus side, that's the most I've done raw full-range since wrecking my shoulder on 370 two years ago.

    * This went surprisingly better than I expected. I was moving all weekend and was pretty exhausted all day. Also, we haven't pulled from the floor in forever, and whenever I take time off from pulling, the first week back sucks. All in all, a good day!

    Put on my new ace pro suit....
    500 x 1... laughable depth
    590 x 1... about 4 inches high, but fast
    680 x 1... still high, but much closer to depth. Got wobbly at the bottom and it didn't come up that well
    680 x 1... Was able to stay tighter and sit back more. Came up pretty good.

    Comments:
    * Last workout before I go out of the country. I decided to go heavy on squats even though it was supposed to be a DE day. That should last me for a while!

    * The suit is way too tight, especially if I want to put briefs on under it. The suit wasn't high enough on my thighs until the very last set! I need to lose 15-20 pounds and then maybe everything will fit perfectly.

    * First day back from vacation, so I hadn't lifted in over two weeks. For running on 60 hours of sleep debt, this was actually a decent session. Considering how horrible I felt and being only 30 pounds away from my PR, I felt pretty good.

    * For anyone who's friends with me on facebook, there are tons of pictures of my trip to Israel, so check them out!

    * Felt pretty good today. Wasn't supposed to go super heavy since it's the first week back into the cycle. Not sure if you consider that heavy or not, haha. I kinda do...

    * Goal for the end of August is to hit a bw of 270. Eek.

    * Mike beat me yet again on the deadlift competition... grrr... I will have to get him one of these days! That was super freaking heavy at the top though, that's for sure. It was probably over 700 at the top

    * Going back to 3 days of squat/deadlift/bench instead of ME/DE split. I think I'm going to like that since it means I can deadlift a lot more often!

    * So now I've done 730 straight weight in both my briefs and my single ply suit. Starting to get excited about the briefs + double ply suit combo.

    * We had 7 people in the gym today. It's awesome that we've picked up some new people... makes the atmosphere that much better!

    * So much shoulder work! I definitely need that though since my shoulders have been feeling like arse lately.

    * Also, why have I been training at the other Gold's this entire time? The one I went to tonight has SO many hot cardio bunnies. It might make me start doing a bunch of cardio and finally lose some weight!
