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 ultra wide/wide/comp
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    315 x 5
    405 x 1
    450 x 1
    495 x 1

    Deadlifts
    8 singles @ 315 - 4 sumo/4 conv.

    Decline Abs
    3 sets of 12

    Plan was to work upto planned 2nd tonight. I got the 450 all wrong and I think it was an omen from the squat gods. They were screaming dont rush your next unrack and get the bar placement wrong. Took the 495 out and absolutely smashed it. Ive never squatted a weight supposedly so close to 100% that fast, Felt that good it was almost paused at the bottom, then fired up.

    Very confident at this point. Just going to taper off next week, standard DE work, 75%ish on ME days maybe lower, and deload the week of the comp leading into the sunday. Im a very happy young man tonight. Feels like ive set an all time PR haha

    thanks for the support fella's, its greatly appreciated!

    here's how the meet broke down

    West midlands championship - bodyweight 109.5/241ish lbs

    Squat
    warm ups
    135x5/225x5/315x2/365x1/405x1 - 430/ 473/ 500 miss
    Bench
    135x5/175x5/225x2/245x1 - 275/ 302.5/ 313.5 (PR)
    Deadlift
    135x5/225x3/315x1/405x1- 500/528/550 miss

    total:1315 (16.5lb PR- small but better than none)

    (converted the no's straight from KG's so may look a bit weird for you guys)
    Pro's -
    Things I have learned that worked(Wont change):
    Squat- squatting sub max is the way to go, build that base early and capitalise on it, potentailly could have been rewarded with a big PR today if I hadnt squatted to the floor on my third and wasnt pressured into a decision that cost me.
    Despite warm ups feeling laboured, always have faith in your training, openor and 2nd were smashed and looked the same as warm ups
    Open light (I had squatted my openor for 6 prior to this meet)

    Bench-
    Once again using the actual paused press much more often had a good effect and got me again a modest 5lb PR with some in the tank.
    Deadlift-
    I think this will continue to rise whatever I do, small and often PB's seem to be the way to go in some form, (every other or 3rd week)
    Things I would have changed:
    Squat-
    Wouldn't have been peer pressured into a 10kilo/22lb jump just for the sake of it, would have gone for 3 squats and a modest 2.5kg/5lb PR on best comp squat if the British record wasnt there. Who wants to say they equalled a record when 2.5kg/5lbs will break it though and I was good for it, however I should of got somebody to call my depth so I didnt shit the bed at the bottom and bail. I've got a vid and you can see I could have cut it, probably 2 inches but I was real worried about the judges being super strict so I sunk it very low and it cost me, elbows bailed on me and lost my hips, almost like I sat way too far back. It was quite weird considering how easy my 2nd was.

    always feel strongest after 2 weeks worth of squatting (that third week) something to think about leading into comps!
    Bench
    nothing, bench PR been a long time coming, and slowest moving lift generally anyway, I'll take modest PR's over none anyday with some in the tank.
    Deadlift
    Think I was gassed by my third, havent missed in that area for a very long time! nothing seem especially wrong either, think my upperback rounded a tiny bit, couldnt get the old hips/glutes through, Think pulling after squatting again might be the route to take here though. Something to think about anyway, dont know why I wondered away from it. Gives you almost a false sense of security in your pull (had doubled 528 in the gym) when anything can happen on meet day (a bad squat, shitty arch in bench or injury etc)

    On the hole Im pleased though, about time my total started moving again, had a rough year comp wise and I know we all say, could have been good for a lot more (potentially) today but In this case, tiny error's in judgement and it wouldnt have been out of the question. qualified easily for the nationals, had a crack (at a very low but albeit) record and its step in the right direction if nothing else at all.

    As for weaknesses and where to go next, im thinking of running the smolov base cycle as I havent got a meet planned for a while and Its something I've always wanted to do then will jump into 5/3/1 with some tiny tiny tweaks. I think using the actual lifts is going to take me alot further in my stage of strength than conjugate could (at this point). This training cycle showed that. Just need to get stronger everywhere still, Something I think we all take for granted.
