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?

    After pulling heavy yesterday and then doing it again today my back is trashed. Really wasn't up for today's training mentally or physically but I got my programmed weights in. Now to recover and focus for really heavy squats on Sunday.

    Catch Up Post

    Well exams ended last week so good times there. The school gym has been closed all this week, so no real training to speak of other than some really light upper body stuff at the gym in Matt's apartment complex, and my diet has been pretty lax. Saw Lamb of God in concert on Thursday, amazing show.

    Helped handle a couple of the guys from the Tribe crew in Hickory, a friend from school, and a friend from Asheville at the North Carolina Iron Challenge today. Everyone put up really great numbers across the board.

    Looking forward to the training block I have wrote out for this summer. Time to get back to training, back to work, back to books, and get my diet back in check.

    First day of my new training block. The Block Periodization program that Derek Wilcox wrote for me worked very well last training cycle, so if it ain't broke don't fix it.

    P.M. 1

    Olympic Squats against bands (~200lb band)
    barxstuff
    add bands
    bar+200x1x5
    95+200x1x5
    135+200x3x5
    add belt
    135+200x7x5

    Ended up using way more band tension here than I intended, not really sure how I want to progress on these given that. More weight less reps, same weight same reps less rest,or something else entirely? These really worked my sticking point hard though, thinking these will pay off.

    Sumo Deadlifts against bands (~150 band)
    155x5x10 no belt

    Hamstrings, glutes, and lower back was trashed at this point. Me and Matt decided to call it there, grill some burgers, and hit accessory later.


    P.M. 2
    By the power of cheeseburgers.

    45 minute swim
    ~1 mile of drills and varying strokes, planning on swimming a lot this summer.

    Close Stance Leg Press
    Sled+200x3x20

    Neutral Grip Pullup
    bwx5x5

    Arch Shrugs
    60x3x20

    Hanging Leg Raises
    bwx3x10

    Liked this half and half split with a meal and a break in-between, given that I have the free time for it I will likely employ this for most of my summer training.
