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?

    2 a days not planned just felt motivated and said why not. Squat was ok yesterday I would like to hit 500 which I know I am capable of on a good day since i once box squatted 500 but have yet to bb squat it which is backwards cuz you are supposed to be stronger on bb squats lol.

    Pullups- wg
    55x6
    60x6

    Db rows- (palms in)
    180x6
    190x6 (much stricter than last week)



    Pullups (ng)-
    bw x 21 (too easy)


    Db pinwheel curls-

    90x5 (pr)


    Alt db curls-

    Run 1 mile intervals

    *Cutting carbs eating more veggies, doing the C word and getting leaner. My laziness and desire to eat donuts, pizza, and ice cream led to unwanted body fat. I had a 32 inch waist at 185lbs and now 35 inch at 204 which to me is unacceptable. But this is a good thing because now my motivation level is sky high.
    I love t-bar rows but I have to set them up in the corner of my power rack put a db on the edge and then put 2 plates on it just to prevent it from coming off the ground and tipping over. My back and bis have good strength I just need to get my bis to grow and my back to widen.

    Lots of volume equals lots of soreness. I am actually going to manipulate my volume weekly and see how that works for me.

Funny how everytime I do goodmornings I hit a pr but squats are so inconsistent.
