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?

    4/20

    well today has me reevaluating. i was squatting today and my quad went out AGAIN. And only lifting 315# when it happened. I obviously need to let it heal more. I'm thinking of going real light on the squats for a month or so and going back to conventional deadlifting instead of sumo. and work has been so rough i haven't been getting to the gym nearly enough. i feel like i have no plan and no goals. must reset and get humping again.

    squats: 135# x 5; 135# x 3; 225# x 5; 315# x 3 (and this is when my quad crunched a little...game over)
    good mornings: 205# x 10 x 2; 225# x 10
    standing cable abs: 110# x 12; 120# x 12; 130# x 12
    single leg extensions and hip abductors 3 sets in circuit
    30 min cardio

    PS saw my chiro who does ART and man my leg feels way better, he said there was probably some adhesion between the ITB band and quad muscle. we'll see when i squat next!

    thanks. it's okay for me. bench press has always been my weak suit. the overhead pressing seems to be helping my bench press.
