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?

    It's different for everyone. If 590 is a pr is put your second to last set at 20# under your current pr.

    Good luck.
    Meet PR's: 1008-750-750 - 2464

    Gym PR's... don't count ... time to do another meet!

    If you have that number in mind just go for it. After a thorugh drynamic warm up with mobilty work and myofacial work hit a few moderate attempts then go for 590.

    I would go:

    135 for 5
    225 for 3
    315 for 3
    405 for 1
    475 for 1
    545 for 1
    590 for 1

    I like Scott's suggestion. Just get after it. It's not rocket science. Hitting a PR is just nutting up and getting after it. If you make it a big deal, it becomes a big deal. If you just get in there and train you'll probably hit it.

    565 went thats all I got. Not too make excuses, but the gay ass bar i started with kept rolling forward on me so i had to unl;oad all the weight after 455 and switch bars. I am going to start doing SLDS, de,rack pullds, and pull off floor 4 week roatation and see what happens. My prevoius best is 665 in Comp, but I have had injuries since 2010 and a few setbacks.
