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 also need to get back into overhead pressing. 205 x 2 is pathetic :-/

    *Merry Christmas everybody!

    * Considering my groin has been giving me problems for long, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do coming into this workout. But it wasn't hurting so i kept going raw and that was the first time I've been over 400 raw in a super long time. It's not a PR or anything, but it was good to go somewhat heavy raw again.

    * I went to a Paleo nutrition seminar this weekend and learned a ton about what those people think. Seems pretty interesting and I am going to give it a try - at least for a month. No grain should be easy, but no dairy is going to be tough!

    Looking good mate. Seems youre enjoying a decent run of things.

    Are you still training with Gable? How is he getting on?

    Thanks man. Glad to hear someone's reading over my log. I am training in Gable's gym, but he has been lifting at a different time of day from our squad for the past couple of months. His priorities have shifted to family life, so it seems. It's a shame, because we miss him!

    Thats a shame. We have lost two guys (temporarily) from our team of five this year and its getting really tough for benching. I now travel 120miles round trip to squat on Friday evenings. Gotta do what has to be done. I thought Gable was just getting things going. Looked like he was in for some big numbers.

    Yeah, I havent been great at updating my own log (until recently) but there are a few I always make sure I visit. Are you training raw at the minute?

    That sucks. Training partners come and go, but when you only have three guys, it's pretty important to make sure everyone is there and on point and just a big headache in general, especially with shirts and boards and whatnot.

    Gable was getting pretty close to putting together a big total. But he's got other priorities right now and I can't blame him. He's sold the monolift and it's gone within the next week or so. So the rest of us are scrambling to find a new gym. Pretty tough since we all live kind of far from from each other - and Gable's gym was right in the middle.

    I was training raw, but now I've got a meet coming up in 10 weeks, so I want to start getting back in some gear. This whole gym situation might throw a wrench into things though. Keep updating your log - I will read it!

    Also, last two training session:

    Friday - Forgot to write this down, but I worked up to 545 off a two board in my RageX. And that was it.

    Sunday - ME squat:

    A1. Back squat in suit, straps down
    worked up to 725 x 1. PR!!

    B1. 90 degree leg press:
    225 for 3 sets of 8

    C1. Reverse hyper:
    120 for 3 sets of 8

    D1. Tire hit with sledgehammer:
    2 sets

    E1. Ab pulldowns:
    3 sets to the side, and 3 to the front

    * Since our previous gym owner has sold his monolift, we are planning on trying to find a new gym. Today, we tried out Metroflex in San Marcos. No mono and no squat bar, which will make squatting anything over 765 or so pretty dangerous. But, better than nothing for now, I suppose. Need to find a way to get 900 on my back before the April meet.

    *Lost 2 pounds since last week. Feeling good and strong!

    GREAT squat in the suit and nice way to open up the geared training cycle. Big boost. Raw work has paid off obviously.

    Hope you get the training arrangements sorted out. Sounds like just as big a pickle as we are in too.

    Thanks man. Felt awesome to get in a good squat even under bad lifting conditions. And to be honest about the training arrangements, it is sounding more and more like multi-ply geared powerlifting is going to be out for a while. There just isn't anywhere near Austin to bench or squat heavy safely. Let me know if y'all come up with any good solutions haha.

    Yesterday was 5/3/1, and it seems like going forward, that's what I'm gonna do for a while.

    Monday - Overhead:

    A1. Military press:
    45 x 10
    95 x 5

    130 x 5
    150 x 5
    170 x 11

    B1. Lat pull-down:
    130 for 3 sets of 10

    C1. Speed bench:
    185 for 9 sets of 3

    D1. T-bar row:
    90 x 10
    115 x 8
    90 x 10

    E1. Ab-bench:
    3 sets of 5

    Comments:
    * Whoah, ab-bench is brutal! So many things in the gym I make fun of that are actually tough, haha.

    Wednesday - Deadlift

    A1. Deadlift:
    135 x 5
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    315 x 4

    405 x 5
    465 x 5
    525 x 4

    B1. Squats:
    200 for 4 sets of 10
    225 x 10 (was supposed to be 210 for all 5 sets. Whoops.)

    C1. Ab wheel
    3 sets of 3 (LOL)

    Cardio:
    2 mile walk on treadmill. Took 33 minutes.

    Comments:
    * Trying out this this new program based on 5/31 and the Big But Boring template. Will probably do this for 12 weeks while the turmoil surrounding finding a place to squat and bench heavy gets resolved.

    * At work today, they had a hydrostatic scale available so I got to find out my bodyfat. Apparently, I weigh 278lbs, with 201lbs of lean muscle. This puts me at 27% bodyfat. This is good because I never knew where I was at. I always assumed it was around 25% but never had an exact number. Getting back to 250ish bodyweight would put me back in the healthy zone... so over the next 12 weeks or so that is going to be my focus.

    Thats a bit crap opening up with a huge geared squat and then having to go back to 531 Gotta make do of course.

    531 is great though. I did it for about 1.5yrs. It didnt suit me for benching though.

    Trust me, I'm more disappointed than you are! I think I might do the april meet raw, and if by then the monolift situation has worked itself out, get back into some gear and go after 900.

    For now, it seems like I should focus on dropping some fat, as that doesn't require nearly the equipment that geared powerlifting does. I've done 531 too, and I think it worked for bench and squat, but not deadlift. Everyone's different though!

    So they say....

    I am asking for a prowler for my birthday and just keep it at my house. Just push it up and down outside my house. Put my kids on it. They'll love it. I remember Gable used to do the SM stuff outside his house. Were you ever invovled with that carry on?

    So they say....

    I am asking for a prowler for my birthday and just keep it at my house. Just push it up and down outside my house. Put my kids on it. They'll love it. I remember Gable used to do the SM stuff outside his house. Were you ever invovled with that carry on?
    Very nice. When is your birthday? I would love to own a prowler but since I live in an apartment, I'm not really sure where I'd keep it... or where I would even use it. There isn't much better cardio than that that though! And I never used it with Gable... that's a bit of a regret - I wish I had.

    * Wasn't thinking that the 555 x 3 would be tough, but I guess it was. Regardless, this cycle isn't about getting stronger so just have to keep it in perspective.

    Strong mil press man. Are you feeling beat to shit?

    Bummer about missing the 3rd rep on the 555. Weights in the mid 500s need some respect I suppose. Strong though.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Thanks man. In day to day life, I feel great. But when I get in the gym and go for maximal weighs, I feel *awful* For instance, today, I failed on the third rep on bench at 315 when I used to be able to do it for 6 or 7 reps. And that 555 should have been easy too! I think it's due to my paleo diet... so either I need to switch up my diet to get some more carbs or I need to accept the fact that the next 12 weeks are about one thing only: fat loss.

    * This program is rough when trying to lose weight. Probably going to cut out the big lift at the beginning and start doing more of a high volume bodypart split.

    * Switching programs yet again. Just was not able to handle the heavy weights on my current diet.

    * Ended up eating some sweet potatoes and some Indian food yesterday. Pretty sure that's what caused my high bodyweight, as I was floating around 270 over the weekend. Oh well, just means I need to get back to work and try to hit 265 by next monday!
