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?

    A new level -- Powerlifting Log

    Hi all. I was looking for a place to post my journal. Saw Big Tone posting here so figured my presence couldn't make it any worse.

    I'm a 42 year old powerlifter. I started about 4-5 years ago and have competed a couple of times, though it has been about a year and a half because of work and an injury (I detached my right medial bicep head in August last year, and had it surgically reattached). I'm looking to compete over the summer again this year.

    I weigh about 185 lbs, give or take 5 lbs each day. Look forward to posting here.

    Andrew

    GETTING OLD SUCKS!!

    bench 135# x 5, 135# x 3, 195# x 3, 250# x 4 (i wanted five, sucks), 250# x 3 - back started cramping up
    standing overhead press 115# x 5; 125# x 5; 135# x 5 - back felt ok
    neutral grip dumbell press 65#s x 10, started getting up and WHAMMO, my back completely went out. I couldn't even pick the weights back up.
    1/2 hour on the elliptical loosened it up a little, but this was the worst pain i've ever felt in my back. Both my hips had pain that radiated down my legs.
    Feels ok now but that was scary. I'm going to dial it back for a week or two and get into the chiro. Time for some ice and ibupropfen.
