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?

    Last pull looked better than the 550! The 550 looked like you pulled with your low back rather than push your glutes through. The last one you see you shove the glutes forward to lock it out! Real nice pull!

    I agree with Tone, that last pull looked a lot better. Was it a 10kg or 15kg PR?

    Thanks Tone, I see what you mean, lockout is always my issue so will keep focused on locking out with the glutes!

    Thanks Brian!! 10kg from the previous week, 15kg since before the program!

    Just got back from an all you an eat Mongolian BBQ place, ate a lot of meat! Will be a mile under weight so not worried, which means i can eat up this week while recovering. Should be good. Had my final heavy session today, squats an bench openers an seconds. Forgot my wrist wraps so just taped them up haha.

    Squatted first an worked up to singles at 200kg (440lbs) an 210kg (462lbs) - best in competition raw is 205kg (451lbs) so should nail that.

    Then benched, worked up to singles with competition calls, 2 sets of singles at 120kg (264lbs) an 130kg (286lbs) - my raw competition best bench is 115kg (253lbs) so that will be getting a good hiding

    Heres the vid - training without a mirror and in soft suit to mimic comp conditions. Stupid bench moved on last rep, not much though luckily.

    Appreciate the support Luna & Coke! I am raring to go.

    What is best is I have no worries whatsoever about body weight so can eat as much as I need this week which is good. Will also most likely be in the afternoon session, never been in the afternoon session but I train in the afternoon so it can only be an advantage!

    Wednesday 14th March

    Deload Session - Final Session before Meet


    Easy session. Hardly worth recording but it helps when looking back at prep for each meet. Simply worked up to 50% of planned openers an did 3*3 at that.

    Squats
    60kg (132lbs) * 3 - 2 sets
    100kg (220lbs) * 3 - 3 sets

    Bench
    Bar * 3
    60kg (132lbs) * 3 - 3 sets

    Deadlift
    60kg (132lbs) * 3
    100kg (220lbs) * 3
    120kg (264lbs) * 3 - 3 sets

    3 days...

    Cheers Nick!

    Central Districts Champs Report

    Weighed in at 89.4kg, was great not worrying about weight an just eating normal all the way up to the competition. Will likely try sit around or just above 90kg for 2012, quite like the weight at present.

    All warmups went well, no issues with the squat or bench warmups, went smooth an followed my plans I had laid out. Deadlifts felt heavy on the warm up, but thats expected with them being the final lifts of the day, I never remember lights for each lift so will just put good/bad lift...

    Squats
    Attempt One: 200kg (440lbs) - Good lift
    Nice an smooth so stepped up the 2nd...
    Attempt Two: 215kg (473lbs)- Good lift (10kg Raw PB)
    Felt pretty good again so thought I would give 500lbs a crack
    Attempt Three: 227.5kg (500lbs) - Good lift (22.5kg Raw PB)
    Hadn't planned this, good feeling to nail it!

    Bench
    Attempt One: 120kg (264lb) - Good lift (5kg Raw PB)
    Smooth, stepped up the 2nd...
    Attempt Two: 135kg (297lbs) - Good lift (20kg Raw PB)
    Bit tough, back cramped a fair bit so passed the 3rd to keep things ok for deads...

    Deadlifts
    Attempt One: 240kg (529lbs) - Good lift
    Easy money
    Attempt Two: 260kg (572lbs) - Good lift (17.5kg PB)
    Bit tougher, 600lbs wouldn't have been there so tried for a CD record...
    Attempt Three: 267.5kg (589lbs) - No Lift
    Got it above the knees an hit the wall. Not enough in the tank, think its not far away, 600lbs is also getting very close... (the 265 record got beaten in the eqquiped category in the afternoon anyway!)

    Total = 622.5kg (~1369lbs)

    Big total PB!! Equaled my equipped total raw! Was hoping for approx 600kg so very happy. Squats did far better than expected, hit my bench aim and happy with the 260 dead! 600lbs will fall earlier than expected this year

    Heres my vid...

    Will check journals later tonight...

    Congrats on the PR's Hayden! Meet looked like a huge success! Your squat was nasty! The deadlift I noticed your upper back rounds a bit and won't allow you to get your hips through at the end. If you can arch harder and keep it during the pull 600 will fall immediately! Congrats again!

    Your squats alone always scale the heights, not surprised to see the 500.

    Major props on the overall meet results!!
