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?

    Dead 1.5 Mats 1x8 135, 1x4 245, 4x1 335,445,535,605 hamstring strain don't get it felt really good smoked the shit out of this like it was a power clean. Had worse strains in the past so I hopefully will recover for my meet Dec. 1st. Shut it down and went right next door to the chiro and got stim and treatment. I will get treatment daily for the next two weeks. It figures this shit always happens when I start reaching my strongest and it has been the best my gear has fit too. I will overcome and make the meet. atleast I can focus on bench a little more, squat shouldn't be an issue, and deads we will see when I get there.
    Projected openers 835,600,700 2nds 910,640,750 3rds whatever I got left.

    54 Phenom 3board 1x5 455
    2board 1x1 525
    Full 1x1 585
    2board 1x1 625 realized at 585 my chest plate is still to big to give me more in the bench.
    Put 56 Ace on 1x1 605 missed full range by a 1board had to see how this shirt felt, definately more support in Ace but the Phenom is less tempermental you know what you are going to get from the phenom. Ace is great when it works maybe if I took a few more sets in the Ace it may have settled more for a better fit to touch some weight.

    12/1 MEET DAY

    So I registered at 275 some how I managed to be 244.5 the night before the meet. At this point I say fuck it may as well drop to 242. Woke up the next morning at 241.8. So I ate breakfast had some drinks and coffee weighed 245. I knew I had a 90min drive to Allentown PA so I basically just bundled up and put on the heated seats in the SS on the ride up. I weighed in at 242.5 couldn't get any better than that. I drank a bunch of fluids and aminos ate some snickers got my weight to 249 by noon.
    Squats started at 3pm It went like so....

    Dynamic warm-up 20min
    Raw Squat 1x10 145, 1x5 235, 1x3 325,
    46 Jack brief went with bigger brief so there wasn't depth problems RPS is awesome they really make you earn you geared squat.
    1x3 415, 1x2 505, 1x1 595
    54 Jack Suit Straps Down 1x1 685
    Straps up 1x1 775
    First attempt 1x0 815 I jumped the squat command even though I stood there for ever. Appearantly my knees weren't locked out. The person controlling the gate opened the gate before I picked the bar causing me to lean foward lol. Buried the lift but didn't count.
    Second Attempt 1x1 835 easy went conservative sisn't want to risk a bomb.
    Third 1x1 880 was my best lift easy and dialed in.
    My plan was to go 815,880,910-950range I probably still had 30-50lbs left in me.
    Bench....
    Raw 1x5 135, 1x3 225, 1x1 315
    Sling Shot 1x3 365
    54 Phenom 3 board 1x3 465
    2board 1x1 525 ran out of warm-up time had to go right to 1st attempt
    1st attempt 1x1 580 back cramped bad due to not many warm-ups
    2nd attempt 1x1 600 all-time PR
    Skipped 3rd 600 is all I have in this shirt until I learn some more in it or get a tighter chest plate
    Dead Conventional
    Raw 3x3 135,225,315 needed to do some reps to get back mobile
    Jack 46 Brief 1x1 405
    King 54 1x1 495
    Light Strap 1x1 585, 1x1 635
    1st Attempt 1x1 700 smoke show
    2nd Attempt1x1 750 smoke show had a miss grip and almost dropped it glad to have gotten the down call lol
    3rd Attempt 1x0 770 killed it but grip was suspect I grabbed to far in on the left and too far out on the right where I dropped it out of my left hand at lock out.

    Total at 242 2230PR 880pr squat at 242, 600PR bench all-time, 750 dead meet pr
    So I would like to lastly thank all my training partners Team VIP for all of their help. Also, my partners from the other teams for help over the past few weeks Ian Decker, Team Jersey Iron so many to name, RPS and the Rychlaks all of you were a great help.
    I will be putting together my new program and am looking foward to getting back at it.
