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?

    Damn I need to read my own journal... I had 385 in my head all day. As I was working up I was like damn this feels heavier then it should. I got to 335 and felt that was pretty damn close to a 1RM. I said no way I hit 375 before and I've never NOT hit a PR on a max effort day. Slapped on 365... stapled. I was like WTF is going on today. My back is cramping up like heck... but I've dealt with that before... I'm tired as hell but again I'm always tired as hell.... I still felt the tricep presses from friday... I've been sore before...I know I've lost like 3in on the belly and about a 1 board off my full range bench but I'm still getting stronger... WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!... So, I went for it again all pissed off. Got about 3/4 the way up and just couldn't get it the rest of the way. WTF!!! Still racking my brain. Not like this was even my previous 1RM. ! Kept going through my head. WTF!!! I get on my phone and look back on my journal.... A FUGING AVG BAND! No freaking wonder everything felt heavier then I was expecting with the light band. Swapped it out and just went right for 385 as I wasted a lot of energy on the previous two attempts at 365 with the light band. Hit 385 pretty easy. PR
