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?

    Yeah you and me both. I loose about 40lbs from the height I'm at, so I'm still not that happy. I am gonna stay the course I have and we will see.

    How much do you loose from rack pulls this high to ground height?
    My GM's aren't done straight legged, wide stance bent a little, none the less still feel it where it's needed.

    I can't say for sure George. It's probably different for each person. When I do rack pulls it's not to failure and after pulling from the floor. You should know more when you drop down to mid-shin or what not. I like the way you are doing it in theory, I just haven't done it myself. The important thing is mechanically you've gotten better.

    That's a heck of a lot of weight you moved! Nice of you to let the training partners get an impromptu deadlift workout Sometimes with certain movements getting the DB's in place is more of a struggle than the set.

    This is the Wellness Center I workout at, we have to put a stepper platform behind the bench so my handoff guy is up higher, he works up to 405.

    Everything felt heavy, was happy with 495 DL. After doing some drinking over labor day weekend I guess it wasn't to bad. Missed a leg DE day that hurt and now I missed a Chest DE day, tommorrow doin Chest ME with 2 Boards. I have off from work so I should get good rest tonight cause I'll be able to sleep in a bit.

    Scott Taylor just posted up Lifter Classification Standards
    For 242 50-54 in Gear I'm ranked master, 100lbs away from Elite. That is doable for me.
    Right now I'm concentrating on Raw. Before I turn 55 I will do gear again.

    Good luck with your goals George. The 2.5 inch drop didn't hurt your total much.

    I'm gonna not let it.
    I had tweeked my lower back doing conventional block pulls in the beginning of july. I didn't do any lifting for 2 weeks and no legs for another 4 weeks. It was the 3rd week of august that I started doing legs. I used ice and ibprofin some strecthing to rehab. Take it. Easy don't rush it.

    Thanks
    My chest work is going as planned. The nagging elbow pains are lessoning. I've been taking the ETS from Atlarge for a 12 days now. Maybe thats helping.
    My deadlift is getting better but I'm still a little unstable from the floor with my speed work. Hoping it all comes together in two weeks. Not sure if I gonna squat at the comp. Might just be Push Pull for sure, depending how my box squats go I might do the full power.

    It's hard to stop lifting altogether when you get hurt especially your back. In the long run your better off just giving it a 10 day rest overall. The back will nag you alot longer if you don't.

    Good luck.

    Got over 500 dropping a pin height. Gonna drop another pin height next week, this will put the platrd between 2 -3 inches from the floor. It seems as if my DL is getting better but my squat is not getting better.
