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?

    James Getchell's - Raw Powers training journal

    I am doing a Bench Meet June 22nd and I will keep a log here. I normally don't keep a log, but with some encouragement I realized its time.

    I will start training again next Monday. March 4th

    So my goal is a 450+ Raw bench....My raw meet bench PR is a 430 as a light 308. I took 450 for a ride after the 430 and it moved about 3.5 inches and stalled.

    Had a meet this past weekend and it did not go well....First in almost 2 years...Everything went great during training. Few weeks out I did 400X2, 420x2, and 440X2 all to a 1 board...felt great!!!!

    Meet day comes and I open with 425 which I had done for 2 sets of 1 on my opener day....Pressed it ok, but my butt flashed at the top....Tried to change my setup, and did not go well.....Passed on my third....I quit!!!! Afterwards I was kicking myself in the A$$.....I've never bombed....Even when doing geared 3 lifts....Spent that day ready to be done....Then decided "Hell no. Not going out on a bomb"....Found a meet in June and will be getting back to it this next Monday!!!!

    Thanks Adrian Larsen for all your help already.....You Sir are a good man!!!!

    June 22nd I WILL nail 450 on my second, and have fun with my third attempt!!!!

    James let me tell you a story, I get invited to LA Fit expo I open up at 740lbs and bomb out. Not because I wasnt strong enough but it was because I didnt outline my training right. Now I spent a lot of money to get there and to have that as a result left me sick to my stomache. The flight back I didnt say a word all I could think about is how I am going to quit.

    After a couple of days I knew I wasnt going to quit. But I kept that feeling you get deep down in your stomache the ache of not doing as well as you wanted and I left that chip on my shoulder during ever single workout. You need to do the same brother. An now that your training is dialed in 450 is going to be a easy opener and a smoke show.

    Couldn't figure out why everything felt heavy on my main bench movement. Then I realized that the power rings on the bar I was using were really narrow. So everything was close grip....

    Kind of messed up my entire workout...lol...Time to throw a tape measure in my gym bag. Lol
