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?

    ... It's a type of target, and an online name I've been using for awhile- so I just stuck with it. The avatar pic isn't a .50 magazine, it's a .300 Win Mag from a Mk 13.

    I discovered fitness as a sport about 3 years ago in CrossFit. Until then, I had just been dong Army style push ups/pull ups/sit ups/run. I went through the starting strength to Bill Starr to CrossFit strength bias progression. I've had several shoulder injuries that give me a lot of pain with high volume type training, so about 6 months ago, I switched to more of a powerlifting template. I've been doing the Westside Template for about 4 months and have been loving it.

    My first meet is coming up in 2 weeks, in which I will be lifting raw. After that, I plan on lifting geared. I'm going to stick with Westside for the squat/dl, but try the Metal Militia template for bench. My bench is pretty weak and has been lagging compared to my squat, so a change might do me good. I look forward to talking with folks much stronger than myself. More to follow...

    Wed April 4-

    1, Thumbs on smooth- Worked up to 225 x3 for warmup

    2. First time in my F6 shirt, it is a bit loose and easy to get on, it's their "meet fit" next one is definitely going to be competition fit. I could get it by myself with shirt slippers then did a light bench with slippers on to seat it a bit more. Put 275 on the bar and touched it relatively easily. I didn't have the shirt jacked at all. I did it 2 more times. It's a 15 pound PR over a rather old (about 2 months) record. I definitely could have handled a lot more, but I was by myself and wasn't confident unracking (I was in a power rack, so I at least wasn't going to kill myself).

    acc 1. 155# Floor press- 10, 12, 8
    acc 2. Pull ups- 18, 15, 9
    Rowed 250 easy, 500 hard, 250 easy

    Afternoon- mini band side raises/pull aparts/band front raises/hammer curls 50x each

    Today-

    Run- .5 mile @ 7:45 pace
    - 20 sec on, 10 sec off @ 6:30 pace and 7.5% incline
    - .5 mile @ 7:45 pace

    GHD Sit Ups - 15, 10, 13 w/2x15# kettlebells

    Went into work today to jump on the rower.

    - Rowed 5k at about a 2:10 average pace- nice and easy.

    I was still feeling pretty fresh so I did two sets each of-
    - Rolling tri exts w/KBs, 20#, 25#
    - Hammer curls 25#, 35#
    - Face pulls

    Don't remember the reps, just went about 2 short of failure.

    I've been lazy lately, I went on leave last week after getting home from A-stan. Meet on Saturday.
