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?

    Tuesday
    06/05/12
    WK2-SQ/DL


    Squat @ 80%
    Barx10
    145/2x6
    235/2x5
    345x5
    435x5
    Added belt
    535/3x5

    Deadlifts @ 90%
    245x3
    335x2
    425x2
    515x2
    Added belt
    575x2
    645/2x2
    650x3...PR!!!

    Decline sit-ups
    BW/4x12

    Done...I wasn't really feeling it today. Last week I squatted 580x6 and today 535 for 5 almost killed me. Now, I believe that is the heaviest and most reps i've done without knee sleeves. Actually, I was suppose to do 535 for 5x3, but instead I did 3x5. Also, my weight today on the deadlifts was suppose to be 640...but you know me, I bumped it up 5lbs, and then added another 5lbs at the end to pull a triple PR. Thursday I plan on doing speed bench vs. monster minis and maybe a short monster mini band.

    Nice, making good progress!! All you guys with these slingshots make me want to invest in one... More weight in the hands can only result in better benching surely

    Thanks a lot Hayden!!! That's the main reason why I got one, so I can feel heavier weights in my hands.

    Friday
    06/08/12
    Lower Accessory


    Anderson speed squats
    Barx10
    145/2x3
    195/2x3
    235/2x3
    285/2x3
    325/3x3
    375/3x1

    Speed deadlifts
    135x3...conventional
    135x5...sumo
    225x3...conventional
    225x5...sumo
    315/4x2...conventional

    Back raises
    BWx10
    BW+25/2x10
    BW+35x10

    Standing calf raises
    135/5x10

    Done...I wanted to try doing some Anderson speed squats instead of paused speed squats and my experiment was a success. So i'll be switching them up. Hopefully doing these will help me powering out of the hole.

    I also wanted to try my old grip on the deadlift which was alot closer then it is now, lol. I feel like im too bunched up. So i'm going to stick with a thumb length from the ring and a thumb length from the smooth. With this grip, it allows me to get my hips down and chest up alot more.....BUT, I need to focus on that under heavier weight.

    The plan for next week is to bench @ 85% for 5x3 and squat @ 95% for 4x1. As far as my deadlift goes, I might pull a 1RM off a 4" block or do some heavy CSGM's for a triple. I'm leaning towards the GM's because I haven't done them in a long time.

    Same here Tim. I'm not going to do them every week, just so I don't get bored. So i'm looking at maybe every other week.

    Nice work as always Brian, very impressed with the DL PR. Questions about the training, is it all layed out at the moment or are you choosing percentages as you go along?
