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?

    135x3
    185x2

    Cycle 6 Back

    Box Jumps: 36"
    bw x3
    bw x3
    bw x3

    Deadlifts
    225x3 Overhand
    295x2 Straps
    345x1 Belt. Heavy
    375x1 PR

    Really happy with this. On Christmas I pulled 285x2 and then failed to even budge 305 off the ground. A month later I'm pulling 375!

    Block Pulls: 13"
    295x3 Mixed Grip
    345x3
    405x1 PR. Pec Strain
    425x0 Straps

    405 was easy to hold without straps but, I got the pain in my right pec again.

    Chin Ups
    bw x3
    bw+25x3
    bw+50x5 PR

    I don't even remember the last time I did a chin up. I've always just done pull ups because they are harder.

    Chin Up+Pull Up+Neutral Grip Super Sets
    bw x5+5+5+5+5+3

    45 second RP

    Incline Curls
    35x15
    35x12
    25x15
    25x12

    My diet has been terrible I've only had creatine once in the past two weeks. My weight is actually down this cycle.

    Thanks guys!

    I should also mention that I skipped last leg day. My hamstrings were having trouble keeping up, so it was either completely skip leg day or just skip deadlifts.

    Thanks. Yeah I know last time I pulled heavy with a mixed grip it was straining my right pec. I will try my weaker mixed grip variation though and see if that causes any pain.
