The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    What's a typical training week look like for you Justin? Did you find those dimel deads to carry over well for lockout strength?

    I enjoy following your training and the videos!

    Meet write up.

    About 2 weeks ago I decided that I would compete at an event (IronWars) that I've been putting together for the last 4-5 months. I knew it could turn out to be a pain in the ass but also knew I needed to knock the rust off. Fortunately I have recently taken on a partner to help run our meets and was confident he could handle it.

    I didn't take squat or dead openers as it was a bit too close when I decided to compete and I already had a pretty good idea where I was at. I took my bench opener (500) 8 days out and missed it. I hadn't missed that in more than a year so it was a bit unnerving. By the next day I had the flu (which explained the missed opener) and it held on til last Wednesday. At this point I had no delusions about setting PR's but still needed to knock the rust off and honestly had never competed in my own gym as I had been the coordinator for most of the meets we'd had.

    I didn't cut for the meet and weighed in at 253 which was a few pounds light (usually around 255-256 in the morning) for me so I upped the sodium and pounded starchy foods and pasta most of the day. By next morning I stepped on the scale at 259!

    Squat
    After stretching, warming up to 625 and smoking it I decided to bump my opener to 705.

    Attempts:
    1st- 705 good
    2nd- 733 got forward and missed.
    3rd- 733 Good! Smoke show for an 11# PR! Definitely had another 30-40# left in the tank .

    Bench
    I originally decided to open with 450ish after missing 500 the week prior, but bumped it to 490 after feeling good in the warm-up.

    Attempts
    1st- 490 good- Felt a pop in my pec on the way down but was able to press it easily. It went up so fast it I almost threw it in the rack!
    2nd- 512 Good, Easy PR!!
    3rd- Scratch. I know I had at least 530 but decided to shut it down after my pec started to throb a bit. I'll save the big press for the WCO in December. My press has honestly never felt so strong and I'm not taking any chances!

    Deadlift

    At this point my subtotal was 1245 and my energy was fairly depleted as I don't think I had fully recovered from the plague I had earlier in the week. I needed 705 if I as going to break 1950 and warm ups felt a bit tough. So after some consideration I took my last warm-up @ 605 and bumped my opener to 705. I know this likely sounds a bit crazy but I figured I was so tired that I might only get one shot at anything over 675ish.

    Attempts
    1st- 705 Good! Easier than I thought it would be!
    2nd- 733 miss at mid thigh, almost had it!
    3rd-decided to call it a day


    Well after having the flu and weighing in 15 pounds lighter than my last meet I still managed to PR finishing the day with 733, 512, 705 for 1951 on the day and a good deal left on the platform!

    Next stop 2000+ in Dec!!!

    Well, I had origionally considered going 242 for the WCO in Dec but dont think I'll hit the #'s I'm chasing this year if I go that route. As of 10/15 I weighed 258 and decided to get to 275 for the meet. I know how to increase the water mass and deciede to add most of it it in the next couple weeks (265+70ish) so I have a few weeks to get used to it and hopefully keep the extra weight from killing my pull then bloating the last bit the few days before the meet. I am sitting at 269 as of this morning and plan to level off here (Maybe go as high as low 70's). Boy do I feel bloated and my pulls felt like ass last night! Cant wait to press sunday and squat next wed!!!!

    Why put on the all the extra weight? Why not just add a few more pounds nice and slow?

    Beacuse it will add quite a bit to my squat and press. Honestly, I want to get everything I can out of this one as I'm considering bodybuilding after this meet (maybe one more). But it is definately happening.

    That's what I thought, not sure why I asked, lol. I've been trying to put on some weight for the same reason but having a hard time.

    I usually eat pretty clean and push 7-8 meals a day. Cutting to 4-5 much larger meals and adding a bit more junk food works really well for me as I usually avoid inflamation (Carrying extra water) aside from meet day. I typically just look at food and gain weight so lowering meal volume and raising meal size works really well for me as it slows the metabolism and makes it a bit easier to gain/hold weight.

    It's pushing through the bigger meals that's hard at first..

    Some strong ass inclines! I'm guessing you get good carryover to your flat bench because I noticed you do them a lot.

    Thanks! I definitely get good carryover.


    Friday deadlifts

    4" deficit
    135 x 10
    225 x 5
    315 x 5
    405 x 3
    495 x 3
    600 x 5 (15# pr)

    Glute ham raises
    3 x 15

    Weighted crunches

    Sunday bench

    SlingShot bench
    Bar x 15
    135 x 10
    225 x 10
    315 x 5
    Added 3x slingshot
    405 x 5
    455 x 3
    495 x 3
    545 x 2

    Tricep extensions
    3 x 12

    Face pulls
    4 x 12


    Tuesday squats (Last session before meet dec 1)

    So I forgot to mention that my next meet is a USPA meet and I have to walk out my squats so I have been doing so since the meet last month.

    Squats
    Bar x 10
    145 x 10
    325 x 5
    415 x 3
    505 x 2
    575 x 1
    Added wraps for following sets
    635 x 2
    725 x 2 (almost) I fell back on this set and tweaked my knee. Walking out proved to be very unstable and I may be out for a full meet in dec. We'll just have to wait and see.

    Shut it down for the night and cried myself to sleep..
