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?

    Yes! My bench finally budged, and then some.
    If you liked my post, you'll probably like my weight lifting information site too. Check it out, Slime!

    My goal was 300/400/500 and to gain 20 pounds from 220 to 240 starting last Feb

    I injured my lower back within the first couple of months so I was sidelined for a good 3-4 months.

    I am now back and I am on my 3rd cycle of 5/3/1 and with 2 months left, I still think this goal is attainable. I am quite sure I already have the 300 bench as my input weight for 5/3/1 is now 305 and I have been consistently hitting doubles on the 1 rep week. The deadlift, I know for SURE I can pull it. The squat is the one that will be the deal breaker for me. Before I injured myself, I got 355x5...the best I have done since then was 355x1 3 weeks ago. My weight has also gone from 220 to 233-235.

    nowhere even close, but that was because of a nagging 6 month long upper back muscle i pulled , then i somehow managed to pull a muscle of the left and right side of my groin, then to end it with tweaking the otherside of my back by just moving my arm while i was driving the other day. hopefully next year wont be so random injury heavy.

    I wanted to hit 300 on bench, and 500 on squats and deads, I got 325 on bench a month ago and have done 475 on squats and 455 on deads. Yesterday I tripled at 415, 425, then 435 on squat then did 10 at 315. I feel pretty confident I will get to 500. I switched to sumo about a month ago on deads, and did 2x6 @ 375, 8 @ 395 last week so I don't quite think I am there on deads yet. But I could be there come January 1st...
    Most people pray for a lighter load in life...ever thought of praying for a stronger back?

    Goals as of 2/08/11 (current) goal:
    Squat: (505) 535, Deadlift: (475) 500, Bench: (325) 350 Total: 1305 (1385)
    BW: 225 as of 02/01/2011 Goal: 205 by May 1, 2011

    I started lifting again in January, so I didn't have too many specific goals for the year.

    My big goal was to get my weight down to 250 by the end of the year. I started at 295 in January and I'm at 255 as of my last official weigh-in. I'm actually trying to reach this goal by Thanksgiving but I shouldn't have an issue reaching the goal by the end of the year.

    My major goal in lifting for the year was to hit 1000 RAW in the Big 3 lifts. I reached that goal and then some (1112.5) at the end of July.
