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?

    Quest to #1800 single-ply

    My name is Mike. I live in Colorado Springs Colorado. My team is called SoCo Barbell. We currently have 5 members and 4 or 5 guy that show up about half the time.

    I've been training almost 3 years. My best lifts when I started where a #315 squat #275 bench and a #365 deadlift raw at #180 pounds. I'm 6' 2" and now #225 competing at #220. My best gym lifts drug free and single ply are #655 squat #425 bench and #600 deadlift.

    I have only competed in NASA. My best meet lifts are #575 squat #424 bench and a #601 deadlift. I am currently training for the NASA World Cup meet in August.

    I trained using the Westside template almost the whole time I've been lifting. With the help of Shawn Frankl I have recently started using the Big Iron style and am very pleased with it so far.

    #500x1
    #555x1
    #600x1

    Reverse bands

    #655x1
    #705x1

    All except #555 where a little high. I just felt real bad.

    Mike, good luck with your goals. Be interesting to see another style of programming.

    I had a side spotter and he said I needed another inch or so. NASA has real strict judging. Thanks for checking me out Mick. I look forward to any help you can give me.
