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 heavy squat

    Squat
    bar x few x few
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    320 x 3
    365 x 2
    405 x 1
    440 x 1
    475 x 1
    485 x 1

    Seated SSB GM's
    2 sets of 20

    Arched back SSB GM's
    2 sets of 15

    v sit ups
    3 sets of 10

    the 475 was sweet, i felt very upright and no danger of rounding or bar rolling but i was slow out of the bottom(like a geared squat but with no suit or briefs! hence no rebound!) but once it moved it was smooth and nice!... I was a bit sloppy on the 485 and it rolled slightly enough for me to feel it however i was alot faster out the bottom/slower at the top, need to find a happy medium... form will never be 100% with max weights though or it wouldnt be a max right?

    tempted to bring my stance in ever so slightly to get more pop out of the bottom. It seems all well and good trying to squat like the geared boys, but i have no gear on!

    Great session. You hit some good numbers and it sounds like it was pretty comfortable.

    for me I've noticed that if i bring my stance in a little bit i get more of a pop out of the hole, change it up, you won't know what works for you unless you try it out.

    yep, its a bit close to the meet but it could be the difference between a PR or not!

    no rows, did enough at work today with buckets of dirt and upper back/lats would have been hit hard last night

    end of this week i will start toning things down i think, starting to get little pains and aches here and there after sessions and work load out of the gym is high, just wanted one more heavy week in the bag before the meet

    "thanks brian, you got any input for me on the stance issue, i know you primarily squat in your gear but im sure you have hit some good raw weights in your time!? "

    For me, I like being a little wider also raw. I usually take a stance a little wider than shoulder width. There I feel I can come out of the hole strong while being able to push my knees outward hard. Anything closer and im all over the place. My hips tend to shoot up if im too close.

    Thats a great night when you can blow your old bench pr away like you did. Congrats J!

    Thoughts...

    Well today i am exactly 2 weeks out

    i am very very tempted to take one last heavy squat tommorow leaving me 13 days out to rest and hit some lighter numbers, was going to de-load this week (work upto around 75% of predicted 3rd attempt) on ME DAYS and do very light quick assistance sessions, and take majority of next week off, if not all...

    i want to be fresh, but i also know if i hit a decent squat tommorow it will push me even further motivation and confidence wise like my bench session friday! let me know what any of you guys think if you see this, i shal read it in the morning before work and make my mind up throughout the day
