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?

    Updates:

    I deloaded this week. Nothing to report. Just low weight and low reps on squat and bench and no pulling. I'm pain free and feeling good. This week is test week and it will go as follows: Monday- Deadlift, Wednesday - Bench, Friday - Squat. Looking forward to it.

    Also wanted to add that I apologize for not posting on anyones log for a while. I barely have time to keep up with my own log. I wont go into details but between work, family, and studying for my CSCS, I have to put every spare second I have (which are few) into my own training for now. So if I have stopped posting on your log don't take it personally! Haha.

    Deadlift (Sumo):
    135x5
    135x5
    225x3
    315x2
    365x2
    added belt
    405x1

    525x1 (12 Pound PR!!!)

    525 went up smooth. Probably had another 10-15 in me but rather than risk a miss I shut it down after the PR. I'll post the vid later today hopefully. Big shout out to Tone for all your help! Testing bench on Wednesday.

    Very nice! Can't wait to see the rest of the results! We worked together for what? 8 weeks? I'd say 12lbs is a good increase in that time! Kick ass jk!

    Yep 8 short weeks. 6 pounds a month is a hell of an increase in my book! Thanks Tone!

    Wednesday 10/24/12 - Bench Test

    Bench:
    Light warmup
    135x5
    135x5
    225x3
    275x1
    315x1
    345x1
    365x0
    365x0
    365x1 PR!!!!

    Some light chins and arm work

    I am stronger than this but I'm still happy with the PR. 345 went up so fast I thought 365 would be a breeze. My problem was I kept letting the bar drift towards my face on the decent. I finally nutted up and focused on the third attempt and nailed it. It wasn't pretty but it was a PR and 10 pounds away from a double BW bench. While I have put on 5-6 pounds in the last 2 months, much of it is in my legs and back. I need to start getting serious about putting some size on my upper body. That starts next week.

    Friday 10/26/12 - Squat Test

    Squat:
    135x5
    225x5
    275x3
    315x1
    365x1
    added wraps and belt
    405x1
    455x1
    480x1 PR!!!
    500x0 (This was really really really close!)

    Pretty happy with tonight. 480 was a pretty easy PR and 500 was so so close. I had already made up my mind to hit a small PR and then go for 500. I'm sure I had 490 but its all good.


    So after 8 weeks of working with Tone Barbaccio I put an easy 23 pounds on my total and left at least another 10 in the tank on both my squat and deadlift. Also bodyweight went from 182 to 187. The results speak for themselves.

    Thanks J! Yeah if I can add around 20 pounds every 8 weeks that is a 60 pound increase in 6 months. Not too shabby...

    Saturday 10/27/12 - Upper Assistance

    Bench:
    205x12
    205x12
    205x12

    Inverted Rows:
    BW x 10 x 5 sets

    Upright Rows:
    95 x 8
    95 x 8
    95 x 8
    95 x 8

    Skull Crushers:
    70 + EZ bar x 10 x 4 sets

    Elevated Decline Pushups:
    BW x 20 x 4 sets

    Today was more about getting a good pump more than anything. Still went pretty hard though. We now have our eyes set on a March 2nd meet in Denver. It is the NASA Colorado State. To be honest, I would rather lift in another fed but there are just none in our area other than the USAPL. I've always avoided lifting in the USAPL but I guess I really don't have a reason for that. Maybe I should give them a try...
