The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Little un-training related post

    Im usually always slower with posting when it gets closer to a meet and sometimes dont even post. I think putting numbers up can sometimes get a bit boring and old logs ive kept before online i used to put up good articles i had read etc and video's i had seen...

    this guy on youtube makes some damn good ones...check this out and his others(i dont know him, not pimping his vids haha) they always get me fired up

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8cj2tG4KEo


    you guys can add me on facebook too if you want... names Jay Smith

    this link might work: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=666185546

    and finally as i said.. squats/deads tommorow... im out for now

    Whats up Jay. See all the boys in here so came over to take a look. Training looks really good. Your numbers are solid. What weight class you competing at and what kind of total you aiming for?

    thanks Brian, think i may have posted in your log already too, good to have you on board!

    im competing at 242 although the IPF recently changed the classes so im sat inbetween the new 231 i think it is and 265... but im holding steady around 242 so just going to stick with that weight

    im hoping for around 1350... 50lb increase from last total... my squat has seen better days but my bench and pull are feeling really strong and to be honest they are my weaker lifts so i will take some meet PR's or alltime on them, especially deadlift

    Good training today. Squats and pull looked really fast. Your squat attempts look good, but bench and pulls, why not go for a pr. If you already hit 315 in a meet, then bump it up, even if its 5lbs. Same with the pull. Im just a big believer in competing for PRs. Id rather miss a lift going for a pr than playing it safe. Bench i would go 275(ok for opener), 305, 320/325 PR. Pull something like 485(ok opener again), 520, 545. Just a thought. I dont have a great pull, and before my last meet, my best was 545. I went 500,530,560. You usually lift better in a meet, so take advantage of it

    i agree brian, i always deadlift better in a meet too so may have to give that some consideration, I went 8/9 in my last meet and had probably my best day of lifting ever and slowly realising its not going to be like that every meet so may have to throw it out there like you have said... only reason im thinking of the total is because of selection purposes for a meet in december, could always do another meet in october time though
