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?

    140x1x2
    160x1x1 PR

    More experiments with wearing gear today. Was a fun experience but I think I'll stick to raw lifting for now. My hip strength and mobility have a good ways to go before super wide squats and deadlifts become a strongpoint. Need to work on upper back strength and tightness as well, started folding pretty hard as I got closer to depth.

    P.M. 2

    Had some downtime and felt pretty good so hit a second session.

    barx2x5

    Played around with my foot positioning a good bit today, found a way to actually get leg drive as apparently I was not getting any at all with my previous positioning.

    105x3x8

    Ran out of time so called it a day there.

    While I feel silly doing this much arm work especially things like kickbacks, it seems to be helping my elbow pain, and tricep strength for my presses.

    RDL
    135x3x5

    Well squats are still sucking pretty hardcore so I took Derek's advice to do some RDLs. Upon completing my first set of 5 it became painfully aware to me that my hamstrings are pathetically weak. As they were ready to violently choke me to death , and started cramping almost immediately. So I'm going to take a couple steps back and run the "Derek Wilcox jacked and tan cycle of less suck".

    Wanted to do more but my elbow advised me to do otherwise. Might do some pushdowns and face pulls later if it decides to cooperate.

    Upped the deficit instead of the weight from last week, Ended up being 187.5 though due to kilo conversion for this week so I kinda sorta went up. Regardless much much easier than last week even given a higher deficit and more weight.
