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?

    fat

    The background
    Well I have been posting on WBB for awhile and figured it was about time I start a journal. 20 years old, 5'9" and sitting just under 220 right now, I am also currently cutting. Approaching 2 years of training, with about 20 of those months being dedicated to bodybuilding. I have recently transitioned over more to powerlifting and this journal will be following that. My split isn't too specific as it changes all the time based on what I feel like, but it involves a bunch of westside principles and some other stuff I guess. After seeing a few workouts Im sure you will get the idea.
    My lifts as of right now are:
    295 Bench
    405 Squat
    530 Dead

    I also train with bohizzle (andrew) from this site, and rookiebldr (jeff) now and then. Anyways going to have alot of free time through this fall as I am taking a semester off school to help take care of a sick family member. That's about all for now, workout for today will be following later on.

    Best of luck Sid. I'll be keeping an eye on your journal.

    Also, if you can deadlift 530, then with the right technique work, you could easily be squatting 500+

    Really strong GMs. I would still count the 375 though. If you got it down, and made it back up without dropping into a full squat, it counts.

    Drew: Thanks, ya I didn't drop into a full squat just squatted it up a bit more than I would have liked meh if you say it counts it counts

    thanks guys

    Mazda 3 dragging and pulling
    once again trained with bohizzle and his bro. We took my mazda 3 to an empty parking lot and attached ourselves with a harness and did a bunch of parking lot drags and whatnot with the car. We also brought a rope and tried pulling it with our hands while braced against a curb, I sucked at this. Did this for about 2 hours, all in all alot of fun.

    hm, car pulling, I may have to get Rick to implement that idea in RHOAC. How'd you feel after 2 hours of pulling 1.5 tons around a parking lot?

    Justin: I was pretty beat, luckily there was three of us taking turns so we got breaks, but by the end I was exhuasted.

    DE Bench, shoulders and some other crap

    Went in today a bit pissed after waiting 40 minutes in an LCBO trying to find a bottle of whiskey that was supposedly there. Anyways I was finally told that although their computers said it was in stock they couldn't find it...booo.

    cuff warmups
    DE Bench: barx20, 95x15, 135x5, 9 sets of 3 at 155 rotating grip each set
    speed was good here but I tried a normal grip as opposed to my usual suicide grip and it took a toll on my wrists for some reason

    Push Press: barx10, 95x5, 115x5, 135x5, 155x1, 175x1, 195x1 (PR by 10lbs)
    PR was sweet but not happy with wrists, this was only my third time doing these, once I learn to dip more and sort wrists out I should hit 225

    Side Latreals: 20sx10, 40sx10, 50sx10

    Rear delt pec deck thingy: 90x10, 135x10, 180x5

    One arm pushdown: 4 sets at 10 reps, beh just some random extra tri stuff. Didnt hit them too hard last ME upper day.

    Standing calf machine: 4 sets getting heavier each set all for 5 reps

    Notes: Ok workout but wrists were hurting a bit. Got a great stretch in afterwards again. Also trained alone today, which is unusual for me.

    Nice DE work. You should probably stick to the suicide grip with lighter weight. It will always be easier on your wrists. (just makes sure to have a spotter that you trust with your life if you go heavy).

    Ya it is much better on the wrists, but I feel much more in control with a normal grip. Hopefully I can remedy this situation and get my wrists to grow some balls.
