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?

    6 week competition cycle, thoughts?

    Hi Guys. I'm a long-time reader but just recently decided to ask a Q.

    I've got a PL meet coming up and will only have 6 weeks to prepare for it. My plan was to re-test my 1RMs then start with the cycle. I based it off of two factors 1)I'm really new to competing, this will be my first meet, so I'm thinking of a linear progression. 2)Using prilepin's table for max strength.

    Typically, i was just working on form, so I would do the three big lifts twice a week (with 1-2 assistance exercises), once at 80% (7 x 2) and once at 70% (5 x4). I kept the reps low to focus on set-up.

    My current plan would be to continue to do the three lifts twice a week with the light day still at 70% and the heavier day at these %'s Any thoughts, suggestions, tweaks? Thanks in advance!

    0 RETEST 1 RMs
    1 @75%, 5 sets of 4 reps. 20 total reps.
    2 @80%, 6 sets of 3 reps. 18 total reps
    3 @85%, 5 sets of 3 reps. 15 total reps
    4 @90%, 3 sets of 2 reps. 6 total reps
    5 @95%, 4 sets of 1 rep. 4 total reps
    6 @70%, 5 sets of 1-2 reps. 5-10 total reps

    (edit: sorry, the table looks nice in the text box, but once i submit it gets squished, so I changed the format)
