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?

    Early monday
    abs 6x12-15

    Right shoulder in the front has been giving me some trouble of late. This should be interesting cause I am suppose to be using the straight bar to squat with from here on to the meet next month. Good times.

    No doubt, the pressing movements appreciate that shit least of all, lol.

    Interesting you all have a public gym, that is cool i suppose but probably wouldn't work too well in our town, lol.

    Much props on dealing with such heavy duty squats!

    No handoff or spotters so I had to abandon my plans for 3brd shirt work. Shoulder killin me and it maybe because I squatted with straight bar the day before. Should be able to get back to my normal bench saturdays next week.

    sled pulls wide stance/close stance
    6trips 25yds last 2 ended with 2-45+2-10+90lb kb on top

    Nothin to write home about number wise but just some good old fashioned work. Been a long time for reps on the deads and those kicked my ass and I was spent by the time I got to the last set. That's gotta help my conditioning for the up coming meet and being fresh when the pull rolls around.

    Absolutley pissed about my shoulder and tonight. Now it is hurting at lockout on the bench, I guess I am going to deload next week and see my massage therapist and then come back to try 1 brd singles and make a call there about the meet next month. I hate to puss out because my deadlift/squat is going so well of late but I am not going to compete if my shoulder is going to fuck with my head. OBSTACLES!

    Good luck with the shoulder ordeal, hope it is just a minor roadblock.

    I can only figure I am getting good carryover from suit cause I was about 40-50lb off my PR with it. I compete with gear so I am not to worried about it but I figure I was good for roughly 525-530 in this setup.

    Pitched baseball to my son to practice hitting like a dumb ass and the shoulder flared up again. Now that I think about it, it didn't start bothering me until baseball season. I am going to try and make the other coaches throw balls at practice to see if that helps any. It doesn't seem to bothering me with any overhead stuff only when laying and pressing, yeah thats kind of an important movement.

    The pitchers have way different mechanics than heavy lifters like yourself, it just doesn't mix too well. Like how you are handling it though, easing off is the wisest thing to be doing.

    Stellar pulling going on bro!
