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?

    Meet Write up:

    Sometime last week I decided I was way too much of a mental fatass to cut to 220 (aka i wanted pizza)...
    So friday morning i arrive at the sweatt shop around 10:30 and step on the scale at 238 point something, who cares, after sitting around shooting shit with some of the sweatt shop lifters I headed over to mcdonalds to get a little extra bloat. The rest of the day was spent making fun of my training partner for cutting weight and eating as much as i could infront of him.

    Meet day:
    5am rolls around and im wide awake; I always wake up hours early if I have something important to do. After eating a few bites I head down stairs and get my shit ready to go. I was fourth flight and opened last on squat:

    Squat:
    65x3
    155x2
    265x1
    355x1
    Inzer predators:
    465x1
    555x1
    Metal Jack Squatter:
    665x1
    Wraps:
    750x1

    Opener: 825 - Good
    Barely had straps or wraps on, didnt need them for this. I was in the hole for about 2 seconds before getting an upcall

    Second: 880 - XXX
    Same gear set up which was a mistake, i hadnt ever trained with tight straps or wraps and obviously needed to, as i needed a little more stop in the whole.

    Third: 880 - Good
    After AJ Roberts bitched at me for being a vagina with my straps I decided to actually try to use them, set them at about a 6/10 and wraps also about a 6/10, this was enough support for the 880... Wish i would have done this earlier as i know i could have hit 900+

    Now onto bench...
    Again I was fourth flight but next to last this time..

    Warm ups:
    50x10
    140x3
    190x2
    230x1
    280x1
    320x1
    Slingshot:
    370x1
    410x1
    Inzer Super Phenom:
    460x1 - 3 board
    500x1 - 2 board
    590x1 - 1 board ... this was a misload, i asked for a quarter and somehow got a plate without ever noticing

    Opener: 600- Good
    Perfect is all i have to say

    Second: 640- Good
    Felt extremely good, put my belt on this time to give a little more shirt (gear whoring just isnt natural to me), raised my head a little bit which I did not like but hey, i got it...

    Third: 670- XXX
    I seriously only missed this by about 3/4th of an inch, so close... If my pec minor hadnt got injured a few weeks back and i could have actually did lockout work, this would have been an absolute joke.. Next time

    Deadlift:

    Warm up:
    135x1
    225x1
    315x1
    405x1
    495x1

    First attempt: 625- Good

    Second attempt: 660- Good

    Third attempt: 680 - Good
    This is actually a suprise to me seeing as I only pulled conventional twice this cycle with the heaviest being 585x3.. Lockout slowed down and i felt the bar rolling so i put it on my thigh, pulled my head down hard and slid my hips through without ever moving the bar upwards... slick little move imo

    Overall, Im happy... I knew a perfect day would be 2300 and a realistic day was 2200. I know how to improve what needs improved and I know what to do for next time. I had an absolute blast and really want to thank everyone that helped and supported me at the meet and along the way.

    Now that im pro, its time to win some motha fuckin money.
