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?

    8/18

    I have my first meet in a number of years coming up in a few weeks, so I wanted to work up to my squat opener.

    SQ 135# x 5; 225# x 3; 315# x 2; 385# x 1; 405# x 1; 415# x 2; 425# x 2 So the weight felt easy, but my form was sloppy with the 425#, and i pulled something in my right quad. Goddamn it. I have a theory that I haven't been drinking enough water, only had one glass with breakfast this morning. I may have been a bit dehydrated.

    I then did a half hour of cardio and rolled out my leg a lot. It hurt like hell when I was rolling it, but it feels pretty good now. I'm icing it. Hopefully my shit holds together for this meet.

    PS for my openers I'm thinking 420# sq, 260# bench, 425# DL. All raw. I'd like to end up squatting in the 475 range if my shit holds up. Same for DL. ON bench I'd be happy with 280.

    I also am at about 189-190 lbs bodyweight, so I'm going to cut back the carbs for a couple of weeks and see if I can get down to about 185. Then I'll cut down to 181 through water.

    Some strong stuff going on in here, sorry to hear about the disasterous weight cut I've had a few mishaps with it as well. How did the meet end up going?

    thanks Kevin. Not good. I ended up bailing after I could barely get my squat and bench openers up, and I had cut them back from my original openers since I wasn't feeling right.

    I'd bail too at that point, once things start going downhill I find it very hard or me at least to come back from it. Hell of a day to have an off day : /

    Sessions as of late look great, real strong squats and deads man.
