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?

    Thanks Ryan, not many clusters making it into workouts though.

    Thanks bro.

    I've been thinking about my squat and I've realized I only do one real working set per workout twice a week and I can still manage 5lbs or so increase each time. Does this mean that I'm still in the noob stages as far as squats go, or have I just found out what works best for me at the moment?

    Like what's going on man, you are simply in a fine groove with the squats and everything else.

    Nice squatting Drew!

    You seem to respond very well to less frequency in terms of strength gains. How have the hypertrophy gains been?

    HCT-12

    Workout 3.3


    2-26-11

    Body Weight 174.8

    Bench Press
    135x5
    185x3
    225x7 PR+3 Reps
    245x1

    Wow! I didn't have certain numbers that I wanted to try for to today. If any thing I was thinking about going for 255x2. Anyway I was going to warm up with a double with 225 but it felt really good today so I went with it. This is an estimated max gain of 10lbs.

    Pull Ups
    bw x3
    bw+25x3
    bw+55x4

    I'm not feeling these lately, I think I might deload. I do however feel rest pause/ cluster sets work really well with pull/ chin ups.

    Seated Press
    45x6
    115x3
    150x6+2+2+2 PR+5lbs

    DBR
    85x15+8+6

    My grip was holding me back a bit on these. Weirdly enough the squats and/or curls made my forearms really sore.

    Close Grip Bench: 16"
    135x3
    195x6+2+2+2

    I took about 45 seconds on the last clusters. It was either that or a for certain failed rep. Of course it felt like I could have done 3 with the extra few seconds.
