The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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 everyone. it's been a great training cycle, we'll see how everything comes together in 2 weeks.

    really far behind. here's last week's squats:

    had to call an audible on the plan because my geared deadlift got pushed back due to scheduling. not a big deal, though because i was still 3 weeks out from the meet.

    August 4 RPS New York State Championships (qualifier for XPC Semi-Finals in October)

    had a great time with the team in upstate new york. the cut wasn't too bad, i was able to eat sporadically on thursday. then i woke up friday morning and things changed drastically. i was 166.2 on my scale at the hotel. i jumped in the shower, put the hot water all the way up and sat there for a half hour. went to weigh ins and was 166. we went for a jog around the parking lot, then i sat in my car with the heat on for five minutes. went back in and weighed 165. then i pounded some pedialyte and we went to eat. woke up saturday morning at 174.6. perfect, except my stomach was killing me all morning. i thought i'd be ok for squats, but still wasn't feeling 100%

    squats
    Opener: 615 GOOD
    struggled way too much. my weight was up, but the suit felt loose. going to try and add another pair of briefs, or have the suit taken in.

    2nd attempt: 640 NO GOOD. it felt great on the unrack, but didn't have anything out of the hole.

    3rd attempt: pass

    we were looking to set a small pr, but i was just about buried, so we skipped the third.

    Bench (i finally started feeling like myself, and close to 100%)
    Opener: 440 GOOD. this felt great, and a solid opener

    2nd attempt: 460 GOOD. also felt smooth. small 5lb pr

    3rd attempt: 480 NO GOOD. i pushed straight up and the bar dipped when i tried to bring it back. i should've been good for this, but made a mistake. it happens. things are on track for 500 in october

    Deadlifts
    Opener: 535 GOOD. easy opener to stay in the meet and qualify for the XPC Semis

    2nd attempt: 555 GOOD. also went up easily, and gave me a 25lb total pr at 1630.

    3rd attempt: pass

    had a great time with the guys up at the meet. met some cool people, and learned a ton. should be a fun 10 weeks getting ready for october!
