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?

    Great squat vid, showing a bit of speed with the 435.

    Thanks. Speed is usually good on squats. Just getting that last 1-2 inches of depth is my hardest problem. Funny thing is I always have a harder time going down then up.

    It can be hard to tell depth from the front, but you didn't really look close. Try filming from the side, with the camera at knee height, so you can get a real idea as to how close you are.

    I tried to film from both angles to get an idea. Side view looks a lot better though. Limited space is what makes it hard to get a good angle.

    7/10/10 Meet Write-up

    Well things didn't go according to planned but some things did go well. This meet lasted about 8 hours and was a long day I think about 50 lifters participated.I ended up in the 2nd flight in every lift. The squat was the lift I worried about the most and I hit 2 out 3 on it. This was the first time I used a monolift and I unconciously walked out my first and second squat lol. And I hit them both. The the third I didnt walk out and got crushed. I need to use more leg power and the squat and reduce my forward lean a bit.

    Squats-435,455, and missed 475
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttzpdHFB2FM

    The bench was my most frustrating lift of the day. I opened with 325 and got the thumbs down on the lift. I am not sure why though I thought maybe I had some downward motion but looking at the video I didnt see it. So I repeated the weight and smoked it. Then 350 I got about halfway up and lost it. I was disappointed with this because I have done 365. The bench was a bit higher than mine at home which might have thrown me off a little. Besides that i could not get tight enough.

    Bench-325 no lift, 325 good, 350 miss
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mie1sJz14cg

    By the time the deadlift came I could have taken a nap. Warmups went well. my last warmup of 495 flew up. I made 535 but it should have been easier. I missed 565 then tried it again and came so close to locking it out like 1 inch close. That was annoying.
    DL-535, 565 miss, 565miss
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JiKfCDG-XNg

    I had a blast at the meet and can't wait to do it again and improve. I ended up winning my weight class (198) which suprised me cuz I thought I sucked. I also ended up winning best lifter for the full powermeet which is based on bw (196.75) compared to your total (1315). That felt good to win that which made me feel a little better about my performance. I felt that I should have done better and gotten around a 1390-1400 total but things don't always go according to plans.

    Thanks coke I appreciate the kind words. Your strength is awesome I would love to see you compete one day you would do great.




    7/12/10

    Was gonna do some log pressing and upper body today but on my 3rd set of log I felt a bad pain in my right shoulder (bad one) and my left bicep. I am not sure if it was just horrible cramps or I pulled something. Either way I learned I am not ready yet and will wait till wednesday to do anything. They both are super sore right now. The rest of my body feels like I get hit by a mac truck lol. I learned why lifters don't compete too often.
