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?

    Jason's HCT-12 log

    I have followed a low rep powerlifting routine for the last couple years. I liked the looks of this routine because it combines both strength and endurance. As a rook to the PL sport I already hold two state records and am very close to a national record that I may eclipse this fall. Just done a push/pull meet and totaled 1020 lbs. So here's my HCT-12 program.

    Age 30
    Weight 235
    Height 5'11''

    May 17th was sick with flu on day I started so weight felt really heavy.

    Pullups
    BW 6x6+2+2+2 tough for a fat boy

    Flat Bench
    135x1
    185x1
    225x1
    240x6
    270x6
    300x6
    320x6+2+2+2 (planned on making it farther than this, not sure if it was because i was sick or because I'm not use to doing reps)

    OH Press
    95x6
    135x6
    155x6
    185x6
    205x6+2+2+2

    Calves 6x6
    Best lifts

    Bench Raw 560 Equipped 725 single ply

    135x6
    225x6
    315x6
    365x6
    405x6

    back down to 405 x 6+2+2+2

    Bent over rows

    135x6
    155x6
    175x6

    Today is my Group A day where I will do bench work again. I can tell a tremendous difference on my bench work. With my old routine I would work up to heavy singles or triples for example 405x3 and then go 425 or 430 for a single. My best ever 6 rep set was 375 a few months ago. I feel like my body is responding much better to this routine but my joints are having a hard time adjusting to the additional reps. But this week I only bench once so it gives me more recovery time. I can handle deadlifting twice a week better than benching 2x. But I'm psyched about getting home and doing bench. I really want to hit a 405 for my last set of x 6+2's. Just got finished eating about a pound and a half of leftover steak from the holiday so I have my protein covered for the day, lol. I think I'll crawl under my desk and take a nap till time to go home and work out
