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?

    *Felt beat up today and squats were not doing well because my right groin has been bothersome for a few weeks now. So I did some DL practice and a bunch of bs. DL were very fast and easy. I have been watching DL videos of people much stronger than me and I have found some ideas on how to pull better. I will be moving my DL day back to Friday and Squats back to Monday because things always go better that way.

    Rotating deads every other week seems to be the norm, to each his own though - there are no rules as you well know. Fine for both days bro.

    I know a good amount of strong deadlifts rotate the left but I like to dl so much I want to do it every week lol. I can make good progress 3 weeks in a row at most.

    5/5/13 LOG 262TM 3S

    DE Bench ss plyo pushup-
    50x5

    Hang Snatch-

    *Decided to throw in some speed bench before the log and I felt more explosive on the log. My first set of log at 239 got messed up because my foot slipped on the 2nd rep and I had to drop the log. My Chuck Taylors have run their course and have pretty much no grip left.

    5/6/13 Squat 460tm/ DL 525tm

    Hang Clean-
    80x3
    110x3
    140x3

    Squat (olympic shoe)-
    140x5,5
    210x3,3
    280x3,3
    325x3
    370x3 (belt)
    415x4 (belt/wraps) (pr in o-shoes)
    430x1 (paused)

    Paused Sq-
    230x3
    235x3
    235x3

    DL-
    235x3
    330x2
    420x1
    480x1
    505x1 (belt)
    475x3

    GHR-
    10
    10
    12

    Front squat hold/Db Lunges-
    140x10sec/10x10
    140x15sec/10x10
    160x15sec/10x10

    Suitcase DL-
    135x5
    145x5
    155x5

    *Decided to put Squats and DL on the same day and I think it is a good idea. 415x4 is a PR for olympic shoes. O-shoes are a catch-22 for me. I find it easier to open my hips with them but harder to sit back and it makes for a longer ROM. I need to give the shoes a try to see if they pay off. Front squat holds seem like a good idea for core strength. I think if I get to 200x5 on the suitcase DL my squat and dl will take off.

    Props to you man for not letting the killer cold virus hold you down. It is the norm to just take the time off, but you are far from the norm, lol.

    Just enough to make due is cool, especially since you always stay on top of your game.
