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?

    Thanks dude. Kept it light so I could just sweat. Meant to get in later that night for actual assistance but instead...
    Monday April 29 night
    SOCCER, 90 minutes.. tiring.


    slept 9.5 hours and still didn't wake up alive.

    Tuesday April 30, lunch at S. Hill
    10 min mob

    DE UPPER pt 1, paused bench
    1 second, comp grip
    bar x 3
    135 x 3
    185 x 3
    205 x 3
    215 x 3
    225 x 3
    235 x 3.. last rep I loosened up and it sunk so it was a grinder. This is obviously too heavy to actually be considered DE but that's what I'm feelin lately

    DE UPPER pt 2, cg bench
    55 + 1 light x 3
    55 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    75 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    95 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    105 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    115 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    125 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3
    135 + 2 lights + 1 mini x 3 .. got heavy, done.

    DE UPPER pt 3, plyo pushups
    This probably doesn't make a ton of sense, but we used the step aerobics platforms with the little risers... the step is 4" i'm guessing risers are 2.

    Depth jump pushups:
    6" x 5
    6" x 5
    This sucked because we only had one board so you'd hit your face, got another so we were sandwiched between two
    6" x 5
    8" x 5
    10" x 5
    12" x 5
    then put our feet on a board
    12" x 5 x 3

    Offset pushups for height
    i.e. only 1 arm on the board and push off the ground as high as possible
    4" x 5 each arm
    with our feet up:
    6" x 5 each arm x 3


    RE METHOD
    Incline db, 4 sets of 10
    Incline flye, 3 sets of 12
    5 sets of: Cable xover x 12 + pushdowns x 20


    Conditioning and back later.

    Ouch... that sounds awesome actually :P

    Your workouts really make me wanna start incorporating more plyo's back in to my routine. I might give my shoulder a nice rest and really pick up the pace on some more GPP and plyo's.

    Fuck i LOVE these! I just started playing with them on suggestion from a good coach and wow. Cant get enough. Ov course apparently you have to do them sparingly, so (i was told) maybe 3 weeks at a time, so i only got a few sessions in with them. He may have been right though... around the time i was doing them my bench tanked pretty hard, so maybe they were a bit too much. I was really pushing the envelope on them though.


    But seriously man... 142lbs...??? I still say you'd make a great 220 lifter. 220 and LEAN that is.

    And you should video your snatch and C&J so i can see what you're doing.

    I'll get some video soon, and I'll post my 5 months ago video so although you'll see 20 things wrong, that'll be half what it was!

    So what's weird is, my conditioning is such these days that my pressing muscles are hardly ever sore. Usually on DE Upper there's quite a bit of back work but this week I did more bodybuilding nonsense for the anterior groups to start rectifying this 142 thing. Despite that, I'm guessing from the plyo stuff, my lats were incredibly sore the next few days (which makes sense if I think about the way I press and how high we were going). Interesting how you try something and find good but unexpected results.

    Saturday May 4, S. Hill

    Started with 2 hours of helping somebody move (GPP!)

    ME UPPER: Push Press
    bar
    95 x 5
    125 x 3
    145 x 2
    165 x 1
    180 x miss, somehow forgot to press
    180 x 1
    185 x 1. Good enough!

    WOD
    12 min AMRAP of:
    2 bar muscle ups
    4 hang power clean and jerk, 95#
    6 hrpu's
    10 rounds. I was proud of this because I didn't miss anything and at about 3:45 in I was at 3 rounds so I definitely sped up rather than slowed down.

    RE Method
    3 sets of: incline db press with monster mini x 12 + reverse bench x 12 + decline situp w/ overhead weight
    3 sets of: 10 butterfly pullup + 12 pushdowns
    2 sets of: shrugs and curls, out of energy.

    Monday May 6, after work S Hill

    Had time to get a bit more in, plans went astray.

    15 min mob / B warm up
    SNATCH
    bar, 3 postition + 3 ohs
    75 x BAAAM, straight to the forehead. Bled a ton, took 15 minutes to clean up etc. This screwed up my plan.
    75 x 3 snatches
    95 x 3
    105 x 2
    115 x 1
    125 x 1
    135 for 5 singles EMOM.

    Was supposed to do a deadlift/ttb WOD but I was not doing well after the head.

    WOD
    Tabata lunges, scored 121

    EXTRA
    pistols to a box, 3 sets of 10 each leg.

    Not much, but something.

    Tues May 7, lunch S Hill

    5 min MOB

    DE Upper pt 1: pause bench
    comp grip, 1 second pause
    bar
    135 x 3
    185 x 3
    205 x 3
    225 x 3 x 3, not slow, good pauses.

    DE Upper pt 2, close grip against bands
    55 + light + monster mini x 3
    55 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3
    75 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3
    85 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3
    95 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3
    105 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3
    115 + 2 lights + monster mini x 3. Still moving, not super fast but didn't stall out either.

    DE Upper Pt 3: plyo pushups
    Depth drops
    4" x 5
    8" x 5
    12" x 5
    14" + feet up x 5 x 3 sets.

    offset pushups for height
    4" x 5 each arm
    6" x 5 each arm x 4 sets.

    WOD
    8 min AMRAP of team burpee pullups.
    Score sorta irrelevant because it was dependent on my partner.. we'd do 5 and switch until he got too tired and he'd do 3 to my 7. I think we ended up with 84. Also, this was in the big gym and the pullup bar is near the limit of my jumping ability so as I got tired my grip got narrower and narrower to make the jump. Fun stuff!

    EXTRA
    50 band flyes
    50 band face pulls
    50 band pushdowns.

    Didn't have time for any real RE work, maybe later or tomorrow I can wedge it in.

    Tues May 7 night
    Indoor Soccer, about 2/3 the 45 minute game. Got home and tried to foam roll but was just too sore.. I don't know why though, I'm guessing from the lunges + box pistols

    Wed May 8, lunch S Hill

    Usually it's just recovery day, but summer is here and I don't do nearly enough hypertrophy!

    So, split the difference. 45 minutes of mob / foam roll / band distracted stretching.

    STUPID STUFF
    elbow too jacked to do the stupid preacher curl thing.
    db curls x 6 + skull crushers x 12, 4 sets
    ez bar curls x 10 + ez pushdowns x 12, 3 sets
    rope hammer curls x 12 + rope pushdowns x 12, a bunch of sets back to back.
    50 weighted situps.

    In theory I'm supposed to be upping my RE work to look like I work out for summer, but then I get stuck doing fun ME and DE and oly too much, so I'm gonna add it in if missed even if it'll affect upcoming stuff.

    ALSO: I feel like I did nothing. I hate this stuff.

    Thurs March 9, morning S Hill

    SNATCH
    bar x 3
    75 x 3, everything feels great, weary of hitting my head again
    95 x 3, some of my best
    105 x 2
    115 x 1 still pumped, can't seem to get down very well though
    125 x 1
    135 x 1 pretty dang high
    140 x 1 fast but high
    145 x nothing. Kinda lost my mojo which was weird because this day was feeling better'n usual.

    Need to a) drop snatching "heavy" in favor of cardio and b) work the drops to actually get below the bar.


    DE LOWER: Free Squat
    bar
    bar + choked lights and minis x 2
    135 + choked lights and minis x 2
    205 + choked lights and minis x 2
    225 + choked lights and minis x 2 x 2
    245 + choked lights and minis x 2 x 2
    255 + choked lights and minis x 2 x 2
    265 + choked lights and minis x 2 x 2
    275 + choked lights and minis x 2 x 2. Got heavy.

    Conditioning / assistance later.

    Thurs March 9, session 2 at lunch, S Hill

    10 min mob

    B warm up,
    clean bar x 3 , 95 x 3, 115 x 2, 135 x 1

    WOD 1
    30 squat cleans w/ 140
    TIME- 7:10.

    Was gonna beat 6:30 and should have but somehow miscalculated my time. Could've gone faster, oh well.

    WOD 2
    21-15-9
    Deadlift 235
    neutral grip ttb
    TIME - 7:18

    This was hard. Supposed to do 245 but miscalculated. Did the deadlifts unbroken but ttb was killin me.

    After this plus this morning I kinda hit a wall, felt dizzy etc.

    EXTRA
    3 sets of calves + abs, the wall grew taller and I called it.

    Friday May 10, morning S hill
    10 min mob

    ME UPPER: Dips?
    Been a condensed week plus I've upped the 2 a days so I didn't feel like being discouraged by a sub par bench/overhead movement

    bw x 6
    +35 x 3
    + 70 x 3
    + 100 x 1

    WOD
    Grace, 9:58.

    Never done this before, amazing how I deteriorate. A lot harder than just the cleans for me, and they quickly became very much power cleans.

    Well, i'm tempted to say 'once a multi-ply guy, always a multi-ply guy'... but you even still train like one. WSB/conjugate... even with CF/Olympic lifting?

    Oh and "no shrug"...??? I hope your coach isn't telling you to shrug, or jump & shrug... if so, run the HELL away from that place. I wonder if there are any good clubs in Spokane... I'll have to look into that.

    Hows the conversation going about Iron Gladiators? I was thinking that July would be perfect. Not much notice, but you guys are pros.

    I've been scouring the internet for a half-decent PL meet to do... and cant find shit. Anywhere. So far the closest thing i can find is one in Kennewick in July, or one in Vegas, also in July. Both are USPA meets. That fed actually sounds pretty cool. Nothing APF, GPC or even (ugh) SPF. Nothing in BC, nothing in Alberta. Nothing nowhere.

    So a few things.. I don't really have an oly coach, I basically watch a lot of videos. Could you send me some info on what the alternative to jumpshrug/triple extension is? A lot of this stuff comes from http://outlawcoach.wordpress.com/

    As far as IRON G goes, Brent has been out of commission forever. If you really were thinking of Kennewick in July I'd probably be able to meet up, maybe get some old crew involved. There's not a ton around here anymore either.

    Brent always had us on a progressive overload, and in just powerlifting I prefer sheikoy/volume type training but conjugate is nice for general fitness because you can rotate a lot of movements. Truth is I just do what sounds fun that day and have no hope of competing at any high level... Although I just looked up that Kennewick meet (looks like August 3rd?) and most of the 132/148 raw/classic state/american/world records would be easily snaggable....
