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?

    fuck, youre strong as dick just havent put it together on one day yet... I couldnt stand not doing something, so instead of going heavy and going for a PR i stopped and did reps, less than i had hoped, but still <90%...

    Im thinking about putting the raw meet off and doing another geared meet by the end of the year and pushing the total up over 23, hopefully

    Great work being done in here Corey!!! Ive got a question about your training if you dont mind, I noticed you pick a second barbell movement after your ME movement on bench days. Do you just work up to a pretty heavy(ish) set of 5 or so or work up to an actual 5RM on that exercise?

    I found that i really just needed more volume with my bench work, im not as muscular as i want to be or as muscular as i need to be so for now size = strength... The volume with the barbell movement also works better for me because im really groove and technique dependant on bench, id rather do shit that builds up my bench groove muscles than just randomly putting mass on... make sense?

    For sure brotha. Thanks for the explanation. One thing I noticed you do for the most part it seems, and I do as well is not nearly as many singles on ME work. I asked for a few peoples advice and they told me either fewer exercises in my rotation or more, and neither helped at all. I literally went nowhere and even regressed even with more frequent deloading. So what I started doing is keeping my ME Bench work to max triples and squats/deads doubles with some singles on pulling sometimes but thats about it. I still use my slingshot for some overload work on pressing though if im feeling good that day.

    And now that I read your setup explanation on fb i'm going to steal a page out of your book and start doing a second BB exercise for a 5-6RM and a shit load more overhead/military/close grip pressing so im going to have even more volume VOLUME = STRENGTH AND JACKEDNESS Loving the log/facebook powerlifting tips you post!!! keep it up!!
