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?

    Deadlift - 11th Feb

    *foam rolling
    *hip matrix
    *shoulder mobility
    *lat pulldowns


    Conventional Deadlift
    154x10
    264x5
    374x5
    484x3
    528x3

    *these felt terrible and my timing was really off. Ssooo, I deloaded. I was meant to hit 6 reps and then hit heavy doubles off blocks but I just didnt have it. The week before was brutal and I havent deloaded in about 6 weeks. Squat and bench are being deloaded this week anyway so it works in ok.

    Oly Back Squats 2x10
    Close Stance GMs 2x10
    Leg Ext 1x20

    Dangerous D then worked at my biceps and triceps for a while with a Tigers Tail. there was a lot of scar tissue on my left triceps and inside of left biceps which is obviously manifesting in my elbow. It was painful but hopefully he has loosened everything up.

    Notes: Crap session but hopefully the work on my elbow will make a difference.

    Took me a good 4 weeks with only like 455 to get my grip all the way out and to a decent 2brd press. Breaking in a shirt is frustrating as hell, but you'll love it once you have.

    I pretty much deloaded all last week. Last Friday night was scheduled to be squatting in full kit but one of our guys couldnt make training last minute and then down to a four ball, another one of our guys tore his adductor when he fell getting into his briefs. Dont even ask, lol.

    Soo we just took some singles in briefs.

    *static stretching

    *elbow compression & terminal elbow extensions
    *hip mobility

    220x5
    308x3
    shirt on (early)
    396x3
    440x3
    484x1 - thrown back into rack
    *took it straight away again
    484x3
    *all above were air pressed
    528x2 - no touches
    550x1 - 1" from touch

    Notes: Very pleased with this session. This was only my second time in my new SDP. I could barely touch a 3 board with 572 or even get my hands out to comp grip the last time so this was a big relief. Kept the sleeves well seated and the collar nice and high to get the touch. Cant wait to start jacking this shirt.

    In other news.....Got my invite to the BodyPower Expo at the NEC last night!! Looking forward to this one again. Its four weeks after the SE Qualifier in April so just a bit of fine tuning to be done inbetween.

    Congrats on the invite Justin, great news!

    Looks like the Phenom is breaking in nicely. Thats the one good thing. They break in quick.
    My fat ass is still fitting in a 48. I barely got 615 to touch. More weight!
