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?

    Not bad for gaining 40 pounds. Little "update" pic. Doesn't really show much but I also have no extreme interest in flexing all over the place.

    That's a pretty good looking lean-bulk going on there. How long did it take you to gain the 40 pounds?

    After the queer picture above I had to man myself up tonight...

    No belt...forgot it so below was all down without assistance of a belt, Although I do not advocate sometimes...you forget it.

    Deadlifts worked up to a 1RM of 370 for a couple singles. Bodyweight is at about 173 which means I actually lost some weight I think it's due to the added hills after every session.

    Power Cleans worked up to 145 x 1 which is a P.R.

    Deadlifts with bands 155 5 x 10
    Hanging Leg Raises 5x6, 1 x 15
    Hills x 30 in 20 minutes.

    Holy balls.

    Excellent job with the deadlifts. Also, I'm always happy to see you throwing down some power cleans.

    So stoked on my bench session tonight...

    I worked up to 195 for a couple singles which is a definite P.R. even got props from the "retired" powerlifter. He's seen how hard i've been working I guess.

    Followed by more bench 135 5 x 10
    DB Rows 80 lbs 5 x 10 (p.r.)
    Face Pulls 60 Reps
    Hills 15 in 10 minutes.

    Good job on the bench PR. You're hitting PRs left and right. Whatever it is you're doing, keep it up.

    Back from squatting and it's a big one for me.

    Worked up to 315 for 4 singles.

    Box Squat 245, 225, 205, 205, 225 5 x 10
    Ab Wheel Roll Outs 100 reps.
    Hills 20 in 15 minutes

    Stopped short cause of sketchy neighborhood dog. But, whatever I'll take it.

    Finally got that bad boy with 3 big plates. What a great way to end this training cycle. Ready for a deload

    Excellent on squatting 3 plates! The box squatting looked solid as well.

    It was definitely incredible. There should be pictures of it as well. I helped a girl with her photo journalism class she wanted to do a story about my friend and I and our lifestyle changes to the iron. I hope theres overly dramatic looking photos haha.

    Thanks guys for following it helps me stay motivated.

    Went in for a pointless lift today with my friend to help another friend for her school project.

    Did Bent Rows 185 3 x 5
    BB Shrugs 225 5 x 10
    Weight Dips and Chins various reps roughly around 4-8 each set
    Pointless curls.

    Just a fun session to hang with a friend.
