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?

    *about as good as it gets in a cold shed on a freezing day. DL felt real good. First time in awhile for farmers walks. A few hours after I went to my mom's house and got one of my atlas stones so now I can practice with it. Man that thing is heavy when you have not touched one in a few years.

    Stone lift- practice
    210x1
    210x1
    210x1

    *Pretty decent effort today. I tried to lift the stone with just chalk but it kept slipping. I used some stickum and waalaa I blasted it off the ground to lap and then exploded it as high as possible. I was reminded of how much cleaning stickum or tacky off of myself sucks lol. Still it was a huge confindence boost to lift the stone. Unfortunately it is not a perfect atlas stone and it is way to smooth (which makes it harder to lift) and not perfectly round on one side. I shold have used a better type of concrete when I made it.

    *It was a very cold day and warming up sucked. Squats were decent but not my best. Stones went ok but not bad considering it is 2 days in a row. First time using athletic tape on forearms and I liked it until it came time to rip it off. When I remind myself to keep my arms straight and squeeze I am a lot more successful on the stone. I have the strength and power just need to work on the technique.

    No big deal, we all have a tendency to get overambitious like that when 'feeling it'.

    *Stuck to the minimum on the bench today my shoulder was not feeling great. I need to work that setup better and get more pressure on my upperback. Anyone who says they can't lose or gain weight lacks discipline. I was down to 209 yesterday evening after walking around at 215 for a few months. All it took was cutting some carbs at dinner and a little bit and I mean little cardio. I will be down to 200 in a few weeks.

    So true, you can make it happen but only with tremendous focus - props on taking charge.

    *Back was sore from yesterdays work and I could never get my squat going today. I have lost a few lbs and the belt is too loose which I should have tightened and I have skipped squats more than I should have lately. I will get back on track by adding some light practice squat work on other days.
