The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Eric Lilliebridge- Push/Pull meet, 1,262lbs raw total

    Here’s the video of my push/pull competition from today!





    My bench attempts felt great. The bench itself was awesome and I had absolutely no grip issues at all. This was the first time I took 500+ to my chest since my pec tare a few months ago. The 507 also tied my best PR before in a meet.

    My deadlift opener felt great, but my 2nd and 3rd attempts I felt too far forward off the floor which put me out of my groove. My lockouts felt very strong, but my form just wasn’t there today off the floor. I will just keep training harder to finally break my old deadlift PR of 800!!!

    Great job Eric. I was at the meet you tore your hamstring, then you tear your pec a few months ago, and to come back and hit big weights is awesome. Congrats bro.

    Thanks guys!! I was actually very surprised with how great my benches felt. My body weight was up and each attempt felt great. The deadlift flight only had about.. i think 6 or 7 guys in it? so the flight was going very quick, by the time i got to the 804 i just felt fatigued and back was getting stiff which i think was causing me to lean foward off the floor.

    I'm pretty sure i'm doing the UPA meet on December 4th in dubuque Iowa, it's a full power meet....i'll have to see how my lifts are feeling in the next couple weeks if i can continue to stay peaked, but if everything keeps going well, this meet i will try to break 2,100 raw. Whatever i end up squating and benching will determine what i'll end up pulling to try and break the 2,100 raw, so i most likely will not be going for the 804 deadlift at that meet, because i have never attempted to pull 800 after squating over 800 in a meet before.

    I will keep my training and videos updated for the next meet!
