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?

    bench. just worked on form to see what I retained from last week. one funny thing was the Gold's benches are shorter, so I couldn't lock my knees on them like I did at Iron Sport. But I did the setup as I was shown and my leg drive was waaay better.

    135# x 5; 185# x 3; 245# x 3; 255# x 3 x 2 easy
    with long pause 185# x 5 x 2

    So I had to work in San Diego this week. I was excited to find a gym to work out at. I found it after walking probably five miles in my chucks and started working out and didn't feel right, I called it. That night, I got a fever so bad I was shaking violently. I spent the whole week sick, managed to work the whole time, but was miserable and spent most of my free time in bed. A real shame because San Diego seems like a very cool city and the La Jolla area was pretty incredible too. I'm still a bit off an occasionally running a mild fever, and my guess is I've lost 10 lbs or so. It's going to take a little while to recover from this.

    Anyway, I found the meet at which I'm going to compete this year, which is September in Bordentown, NJ through WNPF.

    7/18 squats
    135# x 5; 225# x 3; 315# x 2; 365# x 2; 385# x 2 x 5 (I am trying out lower reps on squats. I'm 44 years old, and have been 'tweaking' my left hip and leg a lot during squats, especially now that I'm really trying to bury them. I've found that I tend to pull or tweak a muscle on my 3rd, 4th or 5th rep, so I'm going to try to stick with doubles for a while as I start going above 400# again.)
    circuit:
    hip abductor
    hip adductor
    standing cable ab crunches

    stretching and roller
