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?

    bench programming...

    wanted some input on this and have my accessory work figured out but curious as to what to run for my new bench cycle after this past weekend's meet? I need 365-375 easily for a new goal...

    I thought about 315/325/335 for 5 reps each week starting with week 1 being 315

    335/345/355 for sets of 3 with 335 being week 4's triple....

    then 365/375/385 for the next three singles each week...

    accessory is already factored in. Too much?

    I'm touch and go with 395 but this past meet I had some issues so I'm building up on it...opener was easy but had to take it twice and didn't feel comfortable with a third and need to know high 300's will always be there on command...

    I believe that if I can nail my technique and arch down the numbers I'm doing touch and go with can easily be paused... I just can't get the arch I want with my ass down and feet flat..i can get the ass down and arched on my toes but not when I need to have my feet flat can I keep it.

    Wicked,
    I am certainly no bench king, but I have had similar issues with keeping a good arch. Ever try wearing footwear with a bigger heel? It doesn't seem like much, might every little thing can make a diff sometimes. Also, doing cheating style like belly-toss benches can teach you to think more about leg drive. Once you get this ingrained, try keeping the leg drive and working the butt back to the bench. I am still working on these things, but I think it is helping slowly with my leg drive thing.
