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?

    ME Bench
    Clint gave me his old SDP today, since he picked up a gently used one from a lifter with an Inzer deal who had probably half a dozen or so of them kicking around. Hadn't intended on shirting up, given I was running on about an hr's sleep, but when life hands you a new shirt, you shirt up.
    Wound up playing around in the 550 range. got it to about 2 bd height on 3 separate sets. Packed it in from there and did assistance work.

    Close Grip BP
    135x5
    185x5
    225x5
    added slingshot
    275x5
    315x5

    Did these with a 1 second pause at the bottom to try and kill some of the bounce from the sling. went easy

    25lbs plate x 10 x3

    Band Pull aparts
    "Strong" El Cheapo Band from Wal-Mart x 25 x 3

    Not sure if I'll be able to get to the University gym, since they may be closing early with the pending snowstorm hitting most of the continent today. Haven't been on any of the 24hr US news networks (we don't have any of those in Canada, and it's nice :P) so not sure what ridiculous name they've given this storm... Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon, Snowly ****... w/e

    Deadlift

    Conventional with Belt
    Worked up to 2 singles at 495. My back started seizing up and I decided to call it on the main lift there, so I could get my accessories done. Since the car accident, It locks up real bad on pulls. Gonna need to see my chiro again soon, but not sure exactly when I'll have the opportunity.

    Deadlift standing on 4 inch blocks
    155x3
    245x3
    335x3
    385x3
    425x3

    Surprised by the deficit pulls. I was in a much narrower stance than normal, 4" off the ground (Which, with my short-ass arms makes for a real long pull) and pulled easier than when I was on flat ground...

    T-Bar Rows
    Varying grips
    This wound up being a lot of work. 3 skinny ab freaks were on the 45 degree back extension for about half an hr, and I really didn't want to go elsewhere and do something else and risk losing dibs on the machine next.

    1Plate x10
    2Plates x10
    3Plates x10
    4Plates x10 x4
    3Plates to failure (17 reps) x1
    2Plates to failure (22 or 23 reps) x1
    1Plate x15

    Ghetto Glute Hams
    Jacked the back of the 45 Degree Back Extension up about 10", placed a folded up yoga mat on the pad. Worked like a charm!
    15 Total sets
    Ranging from Bodyweight x 12 to sets of 6 with a 45lbs plate

    45 Degree Back Extension
    5x10 +45lbs

    ME Squat

    Felt good to be back squatting in gear. Wanted to put near max on my back this week to test it out, and the bands allowed me to do so while not stressing the back in the bottom. Good test run, and thankfully it seems my back is on the mend from the car accident.

    Box Squats
    Box set about 1" below Parallel

    Blue Band x5
    Blue/Green x 3
    155+Blue/Green x3
    Suit on w/ Straps down. No briefs
    245+Blue/Green x2
    Added Belt
    335+Blue/Green x2
    385+Blue/Green x1
    Miss grooved it quite a bit and felt a stabbing pain in my groin. I was tucking my lower back way too much to get under the weight and hit depth, so I decided to raise the box height to about 2" above, so I could stay in the groove a bit better and take some of the tension off my lower back.

    Box height 2" above parallel
    335+Blue/Green x2
    385+Blue/Green x2
    425+Blue/Green x2 x3
    475+Blue/Green x1
    425+Blue/Green x2 x2

    Arch Back Good Mornings
    155x5
    155x5
    205x5
    205x5
    155x5

    Green Band Abs
    100 reps
