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?

Actually, suprised at how well today went because I usually am beat up after leg day but I was not that sore today.

    *9.5 out of 10. Was only supposed to do 2 sets of bb rows but I was in the zone on them so I did 3 and I still had more in me. I am getting close to 405x6 it should only be a few weeks. Because I did 3 bb row sets I backed of on db rows and did only 1 set. I try to keep rows and pullups somewhat balanced.

If I was fresh I would have went higher but my shoulders/tris are still sore from two days ago and this is my 4th straight day of lifting. It is snowing like crazy here today so I made a video of today's workout highlights.

    I was told that wider stance GMs dial in on the hams, and that seems to be the case...give 'em a go if you haven't already.

    Whole leg day is impressive.

I weighted 197 on saturday morning lol then I went to PA and my favorite and came back less than 36 hours later and was up to 206 lol. Also, I got engaged at 12:01am on valentines day to my beautiful former gf now fiancee. My uncle also had a small private wedding on valentines day so I have a new aunt and 3 new cousins. We told everyone at their party that night later on so we didn't steal their show. So it was a pretty good weekend for me.

    *Decided to do a westside split for a change and to give my body a break from heavy weights everyday and more variety and also to get into the strongman mindset. I will go back to 5-3-1 eventually because it is great. SSQ squats are always much harder than bb squats because the weight tries to force you forward but I use them to save my shoulders a bit. I did farmers dls to get prepared to do farmers walks again whenever the snow disappears.

    Not sure what a farmer's deadlift is, but that's a bunch of weight for sure.
