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?

    Thursday
    06.06.13
    Squat-Jersey Iron
    WK3D3-Max

    Squat w/Texas SQ bar
    Barx10
    145x8
    145x5
    235/2x5
    325x5
    415x3
    505x1-Added belt and sleeves
    585/5x3
    620x1 w/RB minis

    Anderson squats
    400/8x1 w/30 seconds rest between sets

    Sumo SLDL
    225x8
    275/3x8

    Done...A pretty decent day today. I was able to get the sets/reps I needed. The Anderson squats were pretty killer with the short rest periods. Hopefully this will help me out of the hole. I had the bar set to low, so next time I'll raise it up some. I did take video and I'll get it posted as soon as I can.

    Great session, Bri!

    I bet just getting into position for the Anderson squats can be a pain, can't it?

    Thanks Gaz! Yeah, the lower the bar, the harder for me to get underneath, lol. Next week I'll raise the bar up an inch or two.

    So cool watching your daughter help call depth, racking commands, etc., for you. She looked like she was genuinely enjoying watching her father crush heavy weights! Strong, solid work as always Hopper!

    Thanks bro! Yeah, she was having fun being a head judge, lol. She thought I was going for more on the set with the reverse bands. She gave me a dirty look when I stopped, lol.

    Monday
    06.10.11
    Deadlift-Jersey Iron
    WK4D1-Max

    Deadlift
    135/2x10
    225/2x5
    315x5
    405x3
    495x1
    585x1-Added belt
    635x1
    695x1
    590x5

    Pendlay rows
    225/3x8

    DB shrugs
    60x20
    80/3x10

    Done...Horrible day today. Had no leg drive and for the first time, my grip failed before my back. The 695x1 was a good gym lift, but I would have gotten 3 red lights for sure at a meet. Which is something I'm not happy with. Even the 590x5 sucked! Oh well, lets see what happens in the up and coming weeks.

    Just one of those days, bud.

    At least you hoisted some metal! Even a bad day is better than no day!

    Having a bad day in the gym means you've gotten it out of the way. Once you're on the platform, it'll all click and you'll set some new PRs!
