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?

    Thanks guys, I appreciate it!!!


    Not that it matters, but those lunges were done with 30lbs each hand not 20lbs. They were getting pretty hard towards the end, so maybe I should've gone with 20's! lol

    Awesome looking sessions bro, really coming along nicely. What did you use for the board presses? Looks like a sweet set up.

    By the way, I hate that yall have decent weather there. It's been 20-30 degrees here lately, rain today.

    Thanks Mark! They were my old set of boards, but I cut them down smaller, attached a padlock hinge and bent the hinge over the bar so it'll wrap around. It's adjustable up to a 3brd. I got the idea from John Land from Iron Land equipment.

    I think so, lol. I'm going to see where I'm at the week of the meet, but I decided not to cut weight. I think it's time I take that stress off my back. Plus, I can't weigh in until 5-6pm, so it'll be hard to put any weight back on. At least for me it, lol.

    Not cutting weight will be a great stress relief and put the fun back into competing. I decided two days out to cut weight, but I only had 5 lbs to drop. Easy cut. I even got to eat dinner! Hit the weigh-ins right on the nose.

    The last couple meets I cut weight, I didn't do well in the squat or my total. Not sure if my body is telling me it's time to just compete at what I weigh or not, lol. I'm about 9-10lbs over right now and that's nothing compared to what some of the lifters are weighing in my class. But when it comes to diets and eating clean, I hate it. I would rather eat whatever I want, be happy and have fun. Besides, it's not like I'm going to break any world records...at least not now

    That's a lot of heavy squat and deadlifts together last training day.

    And if you're not cutting weight, you should just try to get closer to 275.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Thanks! Haha, i'll try but I don't think I can get my weight that high. I'd probably have to get rolled in, lol.
