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?

    get your food and a nice long nights sleep and prepare well before the gym tomorrow and youll be good. make sure all those "other" things are taken care of and then when youre in the gym you can be as focused on what you have to do as possible. i know you know all this already im just trying to help. once you hit the gym refuse to let that weight beat you. its all mental man youll kill it.

    Thanks man, I did pretty much just that. Didn't do the cardio after lifting, just didn't have time today, plus I'm still getting use to the cardio after. I'll get it in the rest of the week for sure. I hit a PR on deads of 325x8, pretty stoked on that, didn't even have to reset my grip. Anyway, workout below.

    Yeah, thanks, really? I weigh 225, so the chin ups feel like more of an accomplishment lol. I did the lat pulldowns since I'm so weak on the chin ups still lol.

    Today I was ready for war mentally. I know these weights aren't a lot for most in here, but prior to 5/3/1 I wasn't doing near this volume on deads, squats, or OH press. I missed Tuesday so I had to do deadlift and Bench today, skipped assistance work since I have to squat tomorrow. I was ready today though, hit the 5 reps on the last set like i wanted, had a few in the tank still. Set 2 5 rep PRs, feeling good.

    yea you killed it today man, 2 5 rep PRs on deadlift AND bench in the same session is a big day. keep the same mentality and youll crush your squats tomorrow too. ive contemplated getting wrist wraps too just for my bench because i have had hard times lately holding on to the bar at heavier weights. i never noticed you used them before.. have you always? do you notice being any more stable when benching? i have really small wrists and they always want to roll back at heavier weights.

    anyway great job getting in there today and putting it all out there.

    Thanks man, was stoked for sure. yeah, i've been using wrist wraps for a while now. I have small wrists too, or at least i feel like I do. They definitely help with the heavier weights, i have a pretty wide grip, ring finger/index finger on the ring, so I notice a big difference. They help on squat day too once the weight gets heavier as well.

    10 min foam roll in the morning
    15 min foam roll at night.

    Today

    10 min foam rolling this morning, and do some more tonight when I get home from work. Hitting the gym tomorrow and Saturday since i couldn't make it in to bench today. Been getting the diet in check for real. Was eating out everyday, have only ate out once since last tuesday. My wife started weight watchers as she wants to slim down, so we've been cooking healthy lately. I just eat about 2-3 times as much as she does. This coupled with having my supplements in order, i'm feeling good and hoping for continued gains. Doing my first meet Feb 19th, just a push pull meet, but i'll be good for getting my feet wet. I'm goaling for 300 bench for my third attempt, would be 105lb increase from when I started powerlifting last march. Also shooting for 425 deadlift, which would be a 150 increase from last march. Thanks to all the advice, and knowledge on this forum I have been able to make gains and have a good time with lifting.

    good to see you got all the main lifts in. also nice job on the not eating out thing. not only the health aspect but man that gets really costly when you add it up. definitely something i need to work on too. keep up the hard work, im sure youll get your 300 / 425 for the meet. i might try to make it out there to watch. how is your weight looking right now? i remember you saying you were going to try to get down to a lower class for the meet.
    I may have "Love" on my head, but i have Hate in my heart.

    Feeling better since i've been eating better for sure man. I'm still sitting at 225lbs, got to drop like five ponds to get to 220. I should be able to do it with some more conditioning.

    Missed yesterday, wasn't feeling it after getting up early and getting 4 fillings at the dentist. So I got in today and smashed ****. Added in the rack pulls, went a bit heavy on the first set. Going to keep those in as assistance work, and move goodmornings to squat day. I'll add upper back work as assistance on squat day as well, feel like it's hard to keep my chest up as the weights get over 315 or so. Thinking that'll help squats, and I'll still get the hamstring work in that will help both squats and deads.

    First off I have to start with some ****ed up **** we saw and went through on the way to the gym. Driving there, my wife and I see a taxi cab cut off another car, guy gets out and starts punching the person in the car. As I pull up I see it's a girl and slam my brakes on. I go to get out and dude takes off, we follow to get his plate number and call the cops ( didn't think to get the cab number). He is going to get on the xpressway and stops between two on ramps, so we stop 100ft back or so. He goes to the west ramp and we start to follow, he hits his breaks and throws it in reverse. I get ready cause i know i'll have to go soon, I take off towards the other ramp and he cuts his wheel to try and hit us. I stomp the gas to avoid him. We call the cops, lady is at the station and knows the guy. Needless to say i was livid, so mad, not a fan of violence against women for multiple reasons. Hoping the guy didn't get my plate number. I just don't want any problems, was just trying to do the right thing given the situation i was in. So I went to the gym pretty pumped up and had a good workout at least.
