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?

    Yeah, I think I know what Dave Tate meant when he said it was about as gangsta as it gets. The scoop is insane and the collar is a good 1/2" broader than the ace had. Plus all those big fat seams are 4 ply.

    Bench Training

    Bench
    Barxsome
    154x8
    220x5
    264x3
    shirt
    374x3 - 3b
    440x3 - 3b
    484x3 - 2b
    506x1 - 1b
    528x1 - 3b

    Face Pulls
    4x10

    Notes: First night back with the crew. My shirt is absolutely hanging on me but that will change when I gain about 20lbs . May still need the sleeves altered very slightly though. I faltered with the 506 off a one board. I pressed straight up and lost the line a bit. It didnt feel particularly heavy in my hands but I ended up having to grind the lockout a bit.

    Bench Night

    *liniment
    *stretching
    *rolling


    Bench
    Barxlots x2
    154x10
    220x3
    308x6 w/slingshot
    shirt on
    374x3 - 3b
    440x3 - 2b
    484x1 - 2b
    506x1 - 2b
    528x1 - 2b

    FacePulls
    3x15

    Notes: I have (like many others) got some kind of shitty mild flu like illness. I had put it down to just being a head cold (blocked sinuses, sore ears, streaming eyes, runny nose etc) but as I found out last night its effecting me all over. Everything felt like death. The gym was freezing and warming up was hard. Just felt like a load of balls from the moment I walked in.

    On a plus though, since I have been having difficulty with my shoulders (right more so than left now) my training partner brought his slingshot which I tried and it worked a treat. The 308 moved like speed bench so I have ordered one. At least I can get some decent bench accessory in without having to wait until my shoulder doesnt hurt. The first week of the Southside Bench Program starts next Wednesday but that really isnt really a big issue as once the shirt is on I have little to no problems with my shoulder and as I said its almost all to do with the right shoulder now.

    Thanks Brian. Taking low volume to a whole new level. If Dorian Yeats ever benched in a shirt thats what his sessions would have looked like, lol.

    The Southside Program

    My understanding and intentions...

    *I have subbed the every 4th week raw full range to a single, for a proper deload

    -3 weeks of triples to chest + heavy board work
    -deload
    -3 weeks of doubles to chest + heavy board work
    -deload
    -3 weeks singles to chest + heavy board work
    -opener
    -meet

    Thanks Nick. Got something done.

    I weighed exactly 230.56 first thing this morning. I want to be training around 251.

    That weight seems so pathetic having just watched WSM and the guys are walking around at 390-400lbs. UNREAL.
