The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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 am using the Korte Program to prep for my next competition which is IPF Nationals (Classic/Raw) here in Canada. My meet day will be March 20th so I'm going off of that and starting the 8 week prep today. Volume for the first 4 weeks, then peaking strength on the last 4 weeks. Looking forward to the training and getting a little stronger hopefully. I am adding bands once a week to my training (not super heavy bands) just to overload the movement a touch and see how it impacts me. Should be interesting. I'll be adding bands to my squats on Mondays, bench on Wednesdays and deads on Fridays.

    Thanks D.

    And I guess I should post up for anyone wondering, I am hoping my attempts at Nationals go something similar to this....depending on how my prep goes....

    Squat...485, 525, 545
    Bench...310, 330, 350
    Dead...565, 595, 620

    This is the CPU Nationals for Canada in the IPF (ie. drug tested) at the 105kg Classic(raw) Open Division.

    Cool, another Canadian lifter... I'll be seeing you at Nationals. You're even in my weight class... not that i'll be lifting. CPU Nats is always a good time.

    What are your records? I wasn't aware ov any open 105's in Sask.

    I just moved to powerlifting from strongman so I'm moving from side handled deadlfits and OHP to squatting, BB deads, and bench press. My strength is ok, but movements are a lot different so I am adjusting and trying to get it sorted out. I have only competed in PL once, and qualified for Nationals so I'm going basically just for experience.

    I would normally compete at about 104kg but weighed in at 100kg due to the flu 2 days before...it screwed up my strength quite a bit - and more than I thought it would have. Presently records are 205, 130, and 265. 205 was my opener and I was planning on hitting 227.5 and 235 but it wasn't there that day...weight loss and no strength. Ugh. lol

    Nationals for me will just be a "for fun" thing in order to gain some experience, this will only be my 2nd PL comp ever.
