The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    A year ago today

    One year ago today I was 282 pounds and miserable. I took some pictures and made a goal.

    stats:
    Bench - 165
    Squat - 235
    Dead - 270

    282 From the front October 29th 2010


    282 From the back October 29th 2010



    October 29th 2011 I'm 220 pounds and I've never been happier. I started by running to the gym everyday and cutting back on what I was eating. I dropped a good bit of weight pretty quick and just went from there.

    stats:
    bench - 255
    Squat - 340
    Dead - 375

    220 from the Front October 29th 2011



    220 from the Back October 29th 2011
    Lifts @ 6'2 235lbs
    Bench: 165/285/330 (11/22/11)
    Squat: 235/405/440 (2/2/12)
    Dead: 270/500/440 (1/26/12)
    Total: 1190 lbs

    As of right now, all my long term goals are strength related. Basically within a year I want to have at least a 1.5:1 strength to weight ratio on all my core lifts: bench, squat, and dead lift. However I've already achieved that on my dead lift and squat, so I'll be shooting for 2:1 ratio on those two.

    The way I figure it with my current weight that would put me at a 330lb bench, 440 squat and 440 deadlift. I've yet to meet a person that puts up numbers like that who doesn't look huge, jacked, swole, beastly etc which is why all my goals are related to strength and not physique/weight.

    Its a big goal I know, but no one got anywhere dreaming small.
