The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Yea I'm probably gonna go for it. Vulkan seems to be a step down from old Rehband stuff, but I'm not lifting max singles very often so i think they'll hold up fine.

    Calorie goals look solid. Just judge how the weight gain comes and make the necessary adjustments. If you find yourself falling short some days, then get the calories in some how. You want to avoid 3-4 days straight of not hitting your calorie goals. I'd make sure you are getting it in one way or another.

    That reminds me of the sommersault squats that I've been doing. The way I do them is have the bar placed across your lap and you roll your body over the bar as you proceed upwards.

    I can tell you that the exercise in the link would hammer your quads like nothing else. The sommersault squats take me to absolute quadricep failure. Awesome exercises, both of them.

    Weak 0.3lbs/week is weak. Hope you're pure meso so that's 100% muscle otherwise I'd say you're missing out on some lean mass IMO.

    Remember, neoprene sleeves like vulkan/rehband/tommy kono will not add anything to your lifts. They are there to provide warmth and comfort. I can vouche for the fact that they make my heavy squat sessions more comfortable

    Yea, I think I'm going to eventually pick up the Vulkans, but I may wait until my paycheck comes in.

    The guys over at IM are really innovative when it comes to exercise selection.

    It honestly wasn't that great and I was shocked how many calories were in there after. Blizzard > Mixer.

    I know, I don't want to add any weight to my lifts due to equipment. . I may just lightly wrap my cheap knee wraps I have right now and pick up the sleeves later on.

    HCT Entry Lower B

    Pre-workout: Felt Pretty tired, but decided to give it a shot anyways. My best workouts have been when I was sick, so I figured maybe the same would happen here. 4/10.

    Front squats
    ramping to
    215 +5#
    6
    2
    2
    2
    -Solid.

    Smith Hack Squats
    185# +50#
    4
    Wraps
    4
    -I'm so weak in this movement. I was getting a little bit of knee pain when I hit depth, so I tried on the wraps and it took it away. I doubt I'll use the wraps all the time tho.

    Barbell Hip Thrusts
    135#
    6
    2
    2
    2
    -Love these.

    Incline Dumbbell Curls
    40#
    6-alternating +1
    2-alternating
    2-simultaneous
    2-simultaneous
    -45s next week.

    Standing Calf Raises
    150#
    5.9 +.4
    2
    2
    2 +1

    Leg Raises
    15#
    16


    Notes: Overall a very solid workout. I taped the hack squats and the front squats. I'll post them up later tonight probably. I may just give 225# a go next time with the front squats.

    Barbell hip thrusts really seemed to hit my hammys hard. I liked them alot. Will be a staple posterior exercise from now on.

    My DB and BB curl strength has gone through the roof lately and I'm not sure why. Granted, my bb curl could be stricter (my elbows tend to move forward too much), but my db curls are pretty damn strict. Weird.

    .
    I find they're hellacious on the glutes. I haven't had a ton of hamstring contraction in with them but my hams have definetly felt more pumped and harder since adding them so there obviously is additional stimulation I wasn't getting prior to adding them. So far I've squeezing at the top and making sure to lockout the hips and squeeze hard like you're trying to hyper-extend to be where the major contraction is at. I've also found doable to use a very large amount of weight once you get a little more comfortable with them. I've never in my life had glute doms like after these. I'm still completely green in the movement though, just sharing what I've found over the last month or two.
