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?

    A little guy squatting.

    I've lurked these forums for a while and have been in need of some place to keep my log. I'm a usapl lifter preparing for their raw nationals coming up in august. I compete at 148 and just turned 24 a few days ago so i am no longer a junior, my best raw raw meet lifts are 463/303/551. I am a former member of temples university's powerlifting team but just recently graduated from there, so that is no more, although i do plan on staying in contact with their team and traveling to meets with them.

    My last meet was usapl collegiate nationals which i did in just knee wraps and came out with 490/303/551 and came in 4th place in my class in the meet.

    Im about 5'5 and about 150 lbs right now, ive been as high as 170 last august but cut down from that from to 140 in december and am now sitting steady at where i am. I was carrying to much bf% to be as competitive as i would like to be in my weight class, and although the cut down sucked and my numbers dropped a lot i am now stronger than when i was at 170 and am much leaner as well.

    Some Videos

    303 bench -

    551 dead -
    Video


    500lb squat -
    Video


    I do not have a video of my 462 raw squat or the 490 from collegiates though.
    Ive had limited use with knee wraps and was pretty well thrown off at collegiates using them and in the video above, but i doubt ill ever use them again. I have hit 525 in knee wraps for what its worth and 480 raw before but once again no video.

    I'm starting sheiko cms tomorrow but i always edit the balls off of it, usually increasing the volume on squats and cutting back on the deadlift with more upper and shoulder work. I also incorporate a lot of oly movements into my lifting and plan on competing in an oly meet sometime in the future as well.

    For sheiko i'm plugging in my maxes at 480/305/550 and am shooting for between 1350-1400 at raw nationals in august.
