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?

    attempted to do some floor bench and curls. Shoulder hurt doing the bar so stopped. Just hit some abs. Been hitting the abs for 3 weeks now pretty steady, I hope to see a difference in the squat workout.

    Squat day
    2x8@135
    2x6@245
    briefs on
    2x4@335
    suit on straps down
    1x4@435
    suit on straps up
    1x1@665- Open attempt for meet.

    I did exactly what I am going to do on meet day. Everything was super light, only the 2nd time I have worn the briefs. I could have done 665 for 5 or more.

    meet wrap up from 4-9-11

    Meet went really well. It has been 5 years from my last full power meet, but nervous didnt get the best of me. I took a few extra warm ups to get the hang of the monolift. This was the first time I have used one, and was worried that it would throw off my form. The meet was ran well in my opinion. There is always a lot of people giving the SPF a good bit of greif about judging, but I felt they were pretty fair.

    Squat: Squat went well, I opended at 685. I wanted to open light to secure a good easy first lift. This backfired some because my training partners and I ended up in the same squat flight. I made a nice jump on my second attempt to 775. Again the weight felt light, and I got 3 whites. I felt that I only needed to squat 800 to get the 2100 total which was the goal, but weight felt so good I went to 825. I was not in the center of the bar, and it showed in my form. I wanted to burry 825 so that there would be no question on the lift. I had a little stall out of the hole, but again 3 whites.

    Bench: I had to open a little heavier than I had wanted do to having to have enough weight to touch. 615 was the opener an.d was light, got 3 whites. I went to 640, and again got 3 whites. I had intended to go to 660, but everything was feeling good, so I went to 670. Well this was a mistake. It came up quick, but I got out of groove and lost it about 3/4 the way up.

    Deadlift: At this point I am sitting at a 1465 total. I took an easy 550lb opener to secure a 2000lb total. Next I went to 600, another easy lift, 3 whites. Took 635 as a final attempt. This gave me my 2100 total. My deadlifts were all really easy. I left about 40lbs on the deadlift.

    Time to bring this log back to life. A lot has changed from the last post. I am now working in multiply gear, and it is a real learning process. I have added gear slowly, and still have not tried a multiply brief and suit combination. Eventually I will get there, but for now everything is working. I competed at the APF Seniors in June and finished with a 2380 total@308. I was hapy for my first multiply meet.


    Squat night: Went in with a plan of not really doing a lot. Didnt go as planned.

    Warm ups: All squats walked out in single ply gear
    135
    245
    335
    545x6
    695x4
    785x2 Really bad bar roll

    I got under the bar at 785 with the intention of doing 4-5 reps. I crushed the 2 reps with pretty deep depth, but got some nasty bar roll. It was to the point that it was mid back and I had to rerack as I was about to lose bar. Not sure If i wasnt tight enough in the shoulders or if I just had that much speed on the first rep that I rolled the bar. Either way I was good for at least 4 reps there. I should be happy being I have not walked out over 700 in a year. Pretty sure with a solid training cycle I could go over 900 walked out in single ply gear. That will have to wait though as I am going to gear up next week and start getting ready for the XPC Semis
