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?

    Thanks, I haven't used the smith machine in awhile and wanted to. I'll probably not use it for awhile.

    Everytime I come in here I leave feeling like a little girl.

    Putting on a clinic with the benching Brian. Really strong.
    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

    Thanks Nick, my best all time bench is 455 touch & go. I did 450 touch & go before my surgery so I was getting close. But I want to do it with a pause.

    Tuesday
    01/24/12
    SQ/DL


    Squat w/ the mastadon bar
    Bar x warmup
    150 x 10
    150 x 5
    240 x 5
    330 x 3
    420 x 2
    510 x 2...Added knee sleeves
    580 x 2...Added belt
    580 x 2
    580 x 2

    Deadlift
    225 x 5
    315 x 2
    405 x 2
    495 x 2
    585 x 2...Added belt
    635 x 2
    635 x 2
    635 x 2...I missed a 3rd rep for a PR


    ****************************************
    Done...A pretty heavy session today and I was pretty beat up after my last set of deads so I left. I went for a 3rd rep on my last set of 635, but missed it due to a very bad rookie mistake. For some f**king reason, I decided to bring my grip in and it threw me off. I was lucky to get my 2 reps that I needed. So next time i'll know to never do that again. This would of been a PR for me, my best triple is 625 x 3 (T&G). My squats went ok, so nothing really to say. The reason why I say "ok" is because I couldn't get comfortable, so I stayed with the same weight and got my reps and sets that I needed.

    I did take video and i'll post it up as soon as I can...

    You'll nail that third rep next time you pull heavy, no worries about that.

    Cracking work on the Squats too.

    Thanks, I'm not too upset about it even though I would of been very happy if I got it. I was able to get my 3 sets of 2 and that's all I care about.

    How do you feel after squatting and deadlifting that heavy? That's impressive to go that heavy on both.

    Thanks...I'm not gonna lie and say I feel great, lol. My back right now is pretty banged up and not in a good way. I'm having second thoughts about squatting and pulling in the same day. Next week I'll be squatting around 85% and pull around 97-100% so it shouldn't be that bad. After this meet if I decide to stay with SQ/DL in the same day, I'll cycle it with a heavy/light program.

    I don't see a reason why you can't squat and deadlift on the same day. Doing them both at a high intensity is brutal though. You basically did a squat/deadlift meet with short rest time between them. Whichever one you do second, I'd go lighter and keep it to sets of 8-12. Then you can alternate which one you go heavy on each week.

    That's the plan after im done with this meet. I don't want to change anything right now since im in the middle of my meet prep. I enjoy squatting and pulling in the same day. But like you said, my second lift (which will more likely be deadlifts) will be for higher reps. Next week when I squat my top working sets will be @ 535 and my pulls will @ 660+. So hopefully that won't be bad.
