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?

    Garett Curtis' Training Log

    At the request of Mr. Lilly I'm gonna be keeping a training log now. I was looking for something new to try while keeping the goal of bringing up my raw strength so I signed up to test out Brandon's Cube Training. I'll be doing all 10 weeks of his training method raw based off my best gym lifts.

    I'm coming off of my best meet yet at the 2012 SPF Pro-Am where multi-ply I went 1525 @ 167 bw.

    At 21 years old, I am still trying to absorb as much knowledge and info as possible so any and all criticism or words of wisdom are greatly appreciated fellas.

    Floor pressed this morning for the first time in I don't even know how long. Wasn't sure how heavy my top single was going to be but I was happy with the 225. All in all, it was a solid training session, finished up in just under an hour.
    Heading over to the Flint Barbell Club (40 min drive) this weekend to get some squats in and check out the new facility.

    Week 1 Day 3: Squat Speed Day

    Squats
    bar x 15 x 2
    135 x 8
    185 x 3
    200 x 3 x 3 sets
    (added reverse average band)
    235 x 2

    Olympic Squats
    135 x 5
    155 x 5
    185 x 5 x 3 sets

    Leg Press
    2 plates per side x 15 x 2 sets
    3 plates per side x 15 x 2 sets

    Reverse Hypers
    50 x 12 x 3 sets

    DB Swings
    30 x 15
    35 x 15 x 2 sets

    Olympic Stance squats are something fairly new to me so everytime I do em I'm smoked afterwards. That added to my dislike for leg presses and made them that much more miserable.
    Overall, I'm liking the cube philosophy so far even though its been a short sample size so far. On to week #2

    The commercial gym I trained at tonight was hotter than hell inside tonight so I was whipped by the end of this. Back raises after all the pulls and squats was brutal. Had to pull over on my drive home and get out to stretch my lower back cuz of the discomfort. Next up is bench rep day.

    Week 2 Day 2: Bench Reps Day

    Incline Bench
    bar x 20
    95 x 8
    135 x 5
    165 x 3 x 3 sets

    Good session today. I enjoyed the 2 burnout-type sets of DB inclines after the heavier BB presses. By reps 18-20 arms were shakin like crazy. I had the band set up on the flyes so that it was strung underneath a flat bench for a little more added tension.

    Heavy squat max coming up next
