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?

    Lower volume gettin ready for the meet in a couple weeks. Probably open at 335 and then 350-355 for second. But my bench is always a wid card and hard to predict especially adding the shoulder variable of late.

    Nice and easy session for blood flow.
    My plans for this meet are as follows: Single ply
    Squat: Hit 600 is the goal, open at 525 then go to 560 and depending on how that feels wonder into 600 land.
    Bench: Hit 350 at least but maybe closer to 365. Open at 335 then 345-350 and go from there. Bench is always a wild card and can take a hit after squatting.
    Deadlift: Hit 520-525. Really hard to gauge because i expect this to be one hell of a long meet and fatigue could come into play. Open at 490 then 510-515 and go from there.
    But we know how plans can go at a meet!

    Been sick of late and my weight has dropped a little, got to strap the feed bag on and get to work. Still a week to go so I should be ok. I usually hit PR's after returning to the gym when I 've been sick, so we'll see if this holds true.

    Saturday 3/5/11
    Ironman meet report
    Single Ply
    My best meet by far, hell yeah PROGRESS!
    Weighed in at 239 (still a little light) was about 243 meet day.
    Squat:
    1.525 smoked
    2.560 smoked 10 lb. meet PR
    3.600 smoked 50 lb. meet PR/ been chasin this one for awhile!

    Bench:
    1. 340 smoked 5 lb meet PR
    2.350 smoked 15 lb meet PR
    3. 360 got it but red lighted for uneven lockout.

    Dead:
    1.490 smoked
    2.510 smoked 5 lb meet PR
    3.520 smoked 15 lb meet PR

    1470 total
    I was within a cats whiska of my first 9 for 9 in a meet. But my total meet PR was 90 lb! I feel like I had 1500 well within my grasp as well. I finally hit my target of 600 in single ply before moving on to multi-ply so now I will mess around in the gym this week with some light stuff and start getting after it next week and prep for the multi ply meet. The meet I am eye ballin is in September in Knoxville, so that should give me plenty of time to learn the new gear.

    Great work at the meet man even though I didn't get to see much, it was a long day. I'll be able to help you if you do the one in September

    I thought you had a good day as well but was unsure of the specifics becuase of the chaos. Thanks for the offer on September and since I am going to mulit-ply the help will be needed. The wife struggles helping me with the squat suit.

    Nice little session for the first one post meet. I believe I have figured out some key excercises that are carrying over nicely to the platform. Lots of upper back work, extra tricep work and lower back/hamstring work. Nothin fancy just the usual powerlifting stuff.

    ghr 2x12

    bb rows 225x10x2
    135x15

    cg pulldowns 3x10

    Holy crap this double ply gear is light years away from the single ply stuff I have been using. I will walk like the tin man from the wizard of oz but should squat like 2 grand in all of this gear. Seriously, none of the reps on the cambered squats were at depth and I didn't want to push it with the cambered bar I would rather do that with the normal squat bar. Maybe next week.

    Raw bench weak as hell tonight. I missed 315 coming off the chest, spotter helped to get it going then my lockout took over. I usually notice that after training alot in a shirt preparing for a meet that my raw bench sometimes takes a step back. I wiil be doing alot more raw training for the bench over the next few weeks so it should come back quickly.
    Hopefully my home computer will be back up soon.
