The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    On the road to a 2000lb Raw total...

    Hello everybody!

    I need to start keeping a log to track my progress to determine what works for me and what doesn't and I'd like to do it in a place with knowledgable individuals that can assist me in my journey with any advice. That being said, this seemed like the perfect place.

    A little bit about myself...I'm 26 and I currently train at Detroit Barbell. I have been powerlifting for a little over 2 years now and I have done 3 meets. One of which I just did last weekend on June 30th where I totaled 1760 raw without knee wraps in the 308 class (weighed in at 284lbs). My lifts were 635/420/705. I missed my 455lb bench twice and missed a 715lb deadlift on my third at the knees. My short term goal is to go over 1900lbs raw in knee wraps at my next meet around the November/December time frame.

    I hope to contribute the little knowledge I do have, and also pass on the knowledge I learn here to others.

    Sunday 7-8-12 Deadlift training and my first workout back from the meet.

    Speed pulls - didn't let the bar weight get over 60% today and just worked on speed

    Working sets started at 315 +200lbs of chain

    420x1 all with 200lbs of chain added

    Rack pulls from pin 4 just below the knee caps

    505x5 all sets were against quaded mini bands which we measured to be around 180lbs at lockout depending on height.

    Sumo deadlifts - I have not trained sumo in a really long time and I just threw these in there to get some volume in and I think I will incorporate them in training

    275 for 3 sets of 5 with 45 seconds rest between just to get a feel for them

    Dumbbell rows 150lb dumbbells for one all out set of 20 per side with no straps.

    here is a little video of the training session's top sets

    I look forward to reading to reading the logs on the site and growing stronger with each of you...
