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?

    Aye mate, I've learned that lifting is a waiting game. Lift, eat, sleep and the weights WILL come.

    Day Seventy Six

    Chins:

    10
    7
    6


    One Arm DB Rows:

    6x55 (25kg)
    3x72 (32.5kg)
    3x83 (37.5kg)
    6x94 x2x2x2 (42.5kg)


    Standing Press:

    6x55 (25kg)
    3x77 (35kg)
    3x100 (45kg)
    6x121 x2x2x2 (55kg)


    DE Bench: All done with 1 sec pause on chest, then pressing quickly.

    10x45 (20kg)
    10x110 (50kg)
    10x110 (50kg)
    10x110 (50kg)
    10x110 (50kg)


    Hanging Leg Raises:

    6
    6
    6
    6


    --------------
    Summary:

    Really enjoyed my training today. Chins still feel tough and I'm sure as I put weight on again they'll remain so. But I managed an extra rep over last week, so I'm happy with that. I'll be back at two sets of 10 soon, I'm sure.

    On both the DB Rows and the Overhead Press I'm back up to what I was pre-cut! Happy days! I'm sure that reducing the heavier warmups to 3 reps played a part in giving me enough energy. Hopefully I'll start setting PRs on those two soon.

    DE Bench was great. Pausing the weight for a second on my chest before pushing off makes it SO much harder! By the 8th rep of the last set I was ready to drop it, so had to rack the weight for about three seconds, then bust out the final two reps. Chest was pumped. Loved it.

    First day on my new shake today too. More expensive than my previous shakes, but twice the calories and it has BCAA and Glutamine already mixed in, so hopefully will save pennies there and make a little difference to my recovery too.

    Feeling optimistic.

    Cheers OR! Yeah, trying to get the bench up ready for my comp. I'm sure that my squat and deadlift will have progressed nicely by then, but my bench has always moved slowly.

    Thanks Coke. With support from awesome people like you, what reason have I got to not be positive, lol?

    Cheers mate! I love the Press. Managed to do all those reps strict too, no push-pressing. Just feels good to lift big weights high over your head, don't know why lol.

    Chest still feels pumped today. Not felt my chest worked this much in ages - and it was lighter weights than I normally use!

    Got heavy bench tomorrow - so hoping it's fine for then. Gonna eat loads today and get some good sleep tonight.

    10xBW+22 (10kg)
