The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Day Fifty One

    Bench:

    6x44
    6x110
    6x154
    6x176 x2x2x2


    Dips:

    6xBW
    6xBW
    6xBW+33
    6xBW+44 x2x2x2
    0xBW+66 - tried it for a laugh, just collapsed, haha! Soon, my precious, soon...


    Hammer Curls:

    6x22
    6x33
    6x39 x2x2x2

    -------------

    Summary:

    Good day. Bench felt good today, as did everything really. Could probably have pushed out an even better session if I'd've had some breakfast beforehand lol. As it was, went in starving. Surprised I had the energy I did.

    On another note, my cousin (who's a very strong lifter) has just started going to a Strongman gym every fortnight. I'm very tempted to tag along with him...

    Gazzy, get to that gym, even if you train HCT there just go and soak up the atmosphere, learn like a sponge.

    I think I will, mate. My cousin says he's learning some great things from these guys and been having some great training sessions, so I stand to gain even more if you think about it.

    Bench: +66lbs (132-198)
    Deadlifts: +110lbs (220-330)

    I'd say I've made a lot of progress in four/five months. But now I want to mix things up a bit and lift heavier weights less often.
    good work some nice gains,

    i see you have sticked with the hct, keep at it man

    I think it's gotta be done. Even if I can only make it once a fortnight, it's still worth it for the amount I'd learn.

    Day Fifty Two

    Deadlifts:

    6x66
    6x132
    6x220
    6x264
    6x330 x2x2x2 PR


    Leg Press:

    6x313
    6x313
    6x392


    Single Legged Leg Press:

    6x194
    6x234 x2x2x2


    Calf Raises:

    6x75
    6x174
    6x234
    6x293

    ----------------------

    Summary:

    Enjoyed today. The deadlift clusters were a nightmare - my girlfriend was getting bored watching whilst I was breathing, stretching, swearing and generally psyching myself up for each cluster. Getting them off the floor is a pain in the ass - if I give it my all then they do go, but if I doubt myself for a second then they stay welded.

    Thanks buddy!

    And nah, she was alright, she wasn't exactly hurrying me. And she did very well on her own DLs today too.

    Yeah, Chinese is awesome, just can't go wrong. And thanks - my back and traps are stiff as a board today; I've not had that following deads for a long while. Musta done some serious work, haha!

    Just gonna keep plugging away. If the weight still feels crazy heavy next DL sesh, I'll leave it at that weight, but if I feel some extra energy, I'm gonna add 5kg (10lb) and see where that takes me. Gonna really start focusing on my legs too. Squats+single leg press. If I get more power in my legs I'll have more power off the floor - and it's breaking it off the floor that's intimidating atm. Once it's airbone I can lock it out a piece of piss haha.

    Good to hear you know where to work on your lifting! Try deficit deads too with feet on a board so they're closer to the bar, helped me a lot off the floor

    Will do that mate! I might even do my warm up sets and lighter work sets from deficit, see if I can trick my body into lifting the heavy set quicker lol!

    Cheers mate! Milk was good, haha!

    Was England vs Scotland in the 6 Nations. We beat them, but not by much, wasn't our best game. Still unbeaten this tournament though; Ireland next. If we beat them it's a clean sheet tournament.
