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?

    I would like to share with all of you that I recently received a sponsorship with AtLarge Nutrition and Ken Anderson from Anderson Powerlifting!!! I'm looking forward to representing both companies the best I can.

    Thanks Marcus! I've been hooked on AtLarge products ever since I was introduced to them. All my Titan gear also came from Ken, and we all know how much I love my Titan Boss, lol. So this worked out great for me and I'm excited about it!

    Get that new super boss or whatever they are calling it and squat 1100. You can ditch the denim bench shirt now too.

    I think once I find a crew to train with, I'll do another multi-ply meet.

    Not a great day...

    Monday
    10.22.12
    Deads


    Deadlifts
    135/2x5
    245/2x5
    335x3
    425x1
    Added belt
    515x1
    605x1
    675x1
    725x0

    Done...I shut it down. I knew that something was up when 515 felt pretty heavy. This should have been my deload week. Oh well, next week i'll be deloading and then see if i'm going to train for the RUM. My shoulder and hips are bothering me again, so we'll see.

    Nice training sessions! Try and hit the Deloads when scheduled! Better to feel you don't need to and take it rather than I should have and take longer to recover. This is something that has taken me a long time to learn

    I know, it gets me every time. I think from now on, I'm going to deload every 4th week no matter how I feel. Yesterday was a lesson learned!!!
