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?

    I was able to get the 145 to break ground, which was the most I've moved on 2-hand pinch to-date. And my hands didn't get torn up as bad this time either, which was nice for a change!

    Today was my first all-bending day in a long time. I haven't been specializing in double overhand-style since early last year (and before), so these past few months of overhand bending have taken their toll and been tougher than what I've become used to. I've been bending about one Red Nail (in IMPs) per week, every week, for the past few years. One reason I've done this is that I don't want to let up, as I always wanted to keep this as a baseline, at a minimum.

    Without the push with DO, these past few Reds have become full-body workouts and more of a battle for me. They've also been testing my pain tolerance, especially with the reduced volume. The PL000 felt strong. Just ran out of room on the crush before it locked up.

    It was my first time trying 270 on the axle today. Got about 1/3 of the way up on the attempt. Even though I'm probably average (or below) on the axle, it has become one of my favorite training implements. I plan on hitting this thing hard until I can pull 300 with it. Just missed 215 on the ATB but had a strong second attempt PR with it.

    The 150 on the Euro went up about 2-3 inches, which is major progress, because the past two attempts with 145/150 didn't move at all. As long as my thumb holds up, the next attempt at it should be good!

    The axle felt heavy during my warmups (long day) but I still wanted to make an attempt at 275. I got up about 1/3 of the way, and lost it. I noticed myself trying to get a better position with my left hand, and ended up getting a cramp in my thumb. I have to work on setting up quicker for the heavier attempts.

    The PL000 died a painful death tonight. I've been bending shoes in really old, loose suede wraps the past few weeks, and wrapped this one up in nearly new wraps, which made a world of difference, especially on the kink! Bent it to about 200 degrees. It went fast enough that the bruising should be minimal for once.

    I was super-happy to get the 65 on the Ironmind Hub! I've been working the Hub pretty good for the past year and have made a ton of attempts at 65, with the best being an inch-or-two off the ground. I was able to get it with both hands today. I got 60 back in the fall, so it took about 4 months to go from 60 to 65. Now onward to 70!
