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?

    Cheers Brian & Tom! I am pretty happy with it. Got some photos last night wearing the gear so will post a few when I get hold of them.

    2 days... Feeling rested an ready. Just did some light stuff at 50% of planned openers. My plan with this meet is just to beat what I got last meet on the squat an the bench. Not too worried about by how much, anything would be good. Not worried about deads, the hard work on them starts after this meet.

    Update:

    Went OK today.

    Squatted 220kg (484lbs) for opener an 225kg (495lbs) second. Three whites for both. Skipped the 3rd, hip felt a bit off. 5kg raw PB at this weight class.

    Benched 120kg (264lbs) opener an 127.5kg (280lbs) second, three whites for both. Missed 130kg (286lbs) somehow on the 3rd, just felt really heavy which was odd as 127.5kg flew! Ah well, 2.5kg raw PB in this weight class.

    Deadlifted a token (but fairly tough) 245kg (539lbs) an left it there. Had only deadlifted twice this training cycle so not worried about that.

    597.5kg (1314lbs) total - 10kg down on nats but this was just a test to check squat an bench improved an they did. Pretty pleased.

    What is your difference in bodyweight between now and then?

    Thanks JLS, Nick & Brian. I did what I came to do, PR in Squat an Bench. Not big ones but progress is progress, this was just a test meet not a meet for a big total. Now it is time to get serious. 10 weeks is a lot more prep time and that should be reflected in the PR's to come at the O's...

    Thanks Tom. 1.5kg down since then. 2 more weeks of loss left before the calories increase to try get a couple more kg's of muscle for the O's. The total wasn't a priority for that meet anyway. Wasn't expecting a big dead given the lack of deadlifting lol it should come back fast as it will be regularly in there again from this week.

    Great work, Hayden! A PR's a PR, and two is even better!

    Even if you could've hoisted an extra coupla k's out the deadlift, I'm sure you did the right thing by calling it. As you said, main thing was to see how your focus on squat and bench had paid off.

    Tri's are indeed the key for huge benching, try closing in the grip at times.

    Push day is looking great.

    Cheers Nick. Yeah I definitely am going to make them a huge focus Coke! Strong Tri's = Strong Bench an currently I have a weak bench. Time to change that.
