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?

    16 Days Out

    Second to last Squat Sesh


    Squats
    60kg * 5 - 2 sets
    100kg * 3
    150kg * 2 - using a few 25kg plates
    180kg * 2
    200kg * 1 - added WW
    Work Sets
    220kg (484lbs) * 1 - added B, felt good as!
    230kg (506lbs) * 1
    240kg (528lbs) * 1, * 0
    220kg (484lbs) * 1
    200kg (440lbs) * 5

    Good day! 240kg felt good on my back today - not too heavy. Felt I could've sunk it deeper first set, second at 240kg was tough hence the fail. Did 220kg again for confidence, was good. Happy all in all.

    Bench Press
    20kg * 10
    60kg * 5
    100kg * 3
    110kg * 1
    Work Sets - added WW

    Cardio - yes cardio lol nutritionist recommended adding 20 minutes light intensity after the weights to ensure I make weight. Just did 15min on the cross trainer! Short on time but will make it 20 from here on till I make weight.

    Elbow a bit sore but not too bad till the last two or three sets.

    10 Days Out

    Squats & Bench


    BW: 84.7kg (186.7lbs)

    Squats - Working sets only, all with B & WW
    220kg (484lbs) * 1 - light weight, nice and easy.
    230kg (507lbs) * 1 - good speed, just a tad high
    235kg (518lbs) * miss - leant forward coming out of the hole... frustrating
    Walkout... 260kg (573lbs) - walk out, bend the knees and re-racked

    Bench Press - Smolov Jr - kind of... Work sets only
    112.5kg (248lbs) * 4 - 5 sets, stopped here to practice pause an save elbow
    120kg (264lbs) * 1 - felt strong with all calls

    Cardio - got 16min in on the cross trainer before we had to leave the gym.

    Notes: (*long winded vent alert*)
    So today went OK. Bodyweight is the lowest its been before training, belt is down another notch. The cut has been going really well and a big thanks to Jake Campus for helping me maintain the strength while undergoing a pretty big cut - will hit the 83kg with ease by nats.

    I shouldn't really complain about my squats as the strength has stayed up really well at a lower bodyweight but technically losing it a little bit of late. Letting the hips go up an back rather than leading with the chest an bringing the hips forward. Probably partly to do with my programming (and only having 6 weeks to prepare after last comp), but something I also should have paid more attention to earlier in the program. I am looking forward to nailing some technique after nats when doing more reps on the russian squat program. Especially focusing on really drilling technique on the 6 sets of 2 @ 80%1RM day. Technique will be a huge focus on that day, really want to start to nail these little things. I want a big squat at oceanias... Anyway theres the rant out of the way.

    Bench was good. Felt the elbow a little bit so rather than doing the actual 8 sets we called it at 5 and did a paused rep with all calls at just under our planned openers - felt good. Maybe I will hit that bench PR at nats after all...

    Saturday is a final lower session up to openers, technique will be our focus. May seem close to the competition for some of you but 6 days off has never been a problem for me to come in fresh to squat/dead at a competition.

    Planned Nats Openers - 225kg (497lbs) / 125kg (275lbs) / 255kg (562lbs)

    Thanks Brian, would like a 650 total, numbers to get there I am not too sure. Triple BW squat would be my ultimate squat goal (dependant on my weigh in but 245 to 250kg), Bench I would like a raw PB 140kg ideally to equal equipped but 137.5kg would be fine, Deadlift just whatever I need for the 650 total - likely around 270 though. Should be fun!

    That's true, after a few months down here I am sure the strength will be there. Haven't lost much/anything strength wise with the drop which is a good achievement, got to be pleased. Still believe there is a PB or two there for the taking.

    Exactly, pretty confident the rest week will do me wonders, nothing like lifting fresh!

    Have been looking at some numbers from other Raw Oceanias (an worlds) guys, think 83's is the place to be to give myself the best chance at the upcoming competitions!

    Bodyweight fasted this morning... 83.50kg (184.1lbs) - very surprising! Only 500g (1.1lbs) over the weight class. See if it holds there tomorrow AM weigh in.

    Glad to see the weight cut has gone well. How long before the comp do you have to weigh in?
