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?

    Hows it going Hopp? 245ish?
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Good news is, I woke up today @ 242.0 and the bad news is, I have another 5 more hours until I can weigh in.

    Thanks a lot peeps!!!! I weighed in @ 240.6 and I'm already back up to 247.?, it's a lot harder for me to put the weight back on. I'll probably be 245 in the morning. I can't force myself to eat, I just eat when I'm hungry. But I feel pretty good and normal, besides having a headache.

    I haven't done any sort of mobility work this week because I was too focused on the meet. I might do some before I go to bed, but we'll see. Hopefully this doesn't hurt me at all. Either way, it's no excuse. Time to get my mind right and have some fun....and hopefully score some PR's in the end .

    I was opener on squats and 2 deadlifts. Was at work so no sound, whatever attempts they were you smashed them.

    I watched most of your lifts. Great job on all the prs. Should have done 710 as the last deadlift for 1800, but I guess the 700 deadlift was probably more important than the total.
