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?

    Stroup's Log

    Hey everyone, I've been reading throughout this site for a while now and have decided to log my workouts on here. Hopefully I'll get some added motivation and much needed criticism.

    A little bit about me: I'm about 6'3 230lbs, played baseball thru high school and have been training for around 3 years. This past Septemeber, I started 5-3-1 and loved it. Made some great progress but decided to give the Conjugate Method a shot about 2 months ago. I've never competed in a meet but have every intention of doing so in the future. I'm a student at Penn State and my schedule is hectic and I'm looking forward for the summer break to get in some good training.

    It's finals week here and I have 2 more to go on Friday then I'm done. Here's my workout from today, I'll post more info on my training later after finals.

    DE Squat/Deadlift
    Box Squats: Since theres no box, I stack 7 45lb plates on each other, it is about 4 inches below parallel, my ass is well below my knees.
    70% -> 235 x 10 x 2
    *these were good, I recently realized I was placing the bar too far up on my back, and I moved it down a solid 3 inches or so, while the weight felt much lighter, it will take time to get used to the new placement.

    Speed Deads
    60% 255 3 Sumo and 3 Conventional

    Conventional Deads
    425x1 * PR, Haven't pulled heavy in a while, wanted to get a PR

    Dimel Deads

    40's x 3x10

    Glute Ham Raises


    Good session for me, I'll post more tomorrow.

    Had a rough couple of days, my internet is down at my house because of the crazy storms in NE Ohio so I havent been able to update lately. I will post more about past training and goals and what not when I get the chance. I am back home now and at my regular gym, the weight feels different but it shouldnt. Overall I had a bad day, no sleep, little food, shoulder didnt get loosened up and felt real tight and heavy at the end. however, i did experience some good leg drive on my bench press which what i was trying to do. Will post more when i get the chance.
