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?

    *BW was 208 today. 9.5 out of 10 today. I felt refreshed and ready to destroy things. Deadlifts felt explosive and light. 18 inch deads were easy. Farmers flew. Stones were easy. I can't ask for much more on a calorie deficit.

    PA Dutch 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSeZTYLoCKg

    Weighed in at 195 on Friday. (Lost 20lbs in about 6 weeks) Went to a buffet and bulked up lol.

    First event was 12 inch last man standing log.
    I hit 180, 200, 220, 240 and missed 260. I could not find my leg drive on the 260 attempt. I am used to a 10 inch log and 12 definately felt different. You have to get your head back more once you rack it.

    Tire flip was second.
    The tire was 550 for 10 reps. This is the second time I ever touched a tire and my main concern was to finish and not tear a bicep lol. Goal acheived.

    Farmer's Walk was third.
    220 per hand go 40 feet drop pick up and go another 40 feet. These felt real good and light to me. Experience helped.

    18 inch DL Wessel's rules in effect.
    3 attempts and you can jump in when you wanted to basically. I nailed 550 and 600 easy and thought 650 was going to come but after waiting so long in between attempts it was not happening today. (600 on video)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WnlYaF2X6E

    Stone over 52 inch bar was last. (200lb stone)
    I was worried about this one because I did not want to embarass myself and not get one over the bar lol. I have no problem lifting a 200lb stone but I never tried putting it over a bar before. Luckily for me I got 4 pretty easy and then unfortunately hit the bar on my last 2 reps attempts and the bar won.

    This was my second strongman contest ever and my goal was to complete all the events so I am pretty happy with the outcome. My only regrets were not hitting the 260 log and 650 deadlift. I have hit 262 on the 10 inch log for 3 and the 650 18 inch deadlift for 1 before.

    *Pretty solid today. The 330 cg bench was one of my easiest ever and I probably could have doubled it but I wanted to keep it safe. I will take it 4 days post strongman comp. The max effort method worked great for my bench along time ago and took my bench from 250-300 and then 320-350 at different time. I am hoping this can get me from 365 to 405 eventually.
