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?

    Squats:
    270X3
    305X3
    345X6

    Again, everything felt really good. The knee is giving me no problems as far as lifting goes. I just wish I had more time.

    So, 90 cents a litre? 50 pence per litre, in our money.

    If we got it that cheap here, I'd be driving a V8 too, lol.

    Thanks man. I'm getting fat, but at least I'm getting stronger! So it's not all bad.......

    Isn't a pence basically a US penny? Wouldn't that make a gallon about $1.90 over there? My math isn't very good though

    $1 = £0.64

    On my last fillup of my car, it cost me £1.45 per litre. That's £6.58 per gallon.

    That's $10.25 per gallon at the current exchange rate.

    My car costs me on average ~£80.00 to fill, so about $124.00

    Pfft, Britain's not even the most expensive in Europe, lol. Think the Swedes have that honour.

    Good job our country's not too big. As the saying goes:

    Bench
    220X5
    250X3
    280X8 (barely)
    More bench-135X15X5
    Incline bench-135X15X5
    Thoughts:
    I lifted Fri but forgot to record it. Anyway, I loved this workout. Chest felt really swollen afterwards (which is good cuz so is my belly!), always makes me feel like I did something lol. 280X8 is a lot for me. I "think" next week I'll be able to get a PR for bench. We'll see come Monday.

    Squats:
    285X5
    325X3
    365X5
    Front Squats-135X15X5
    Thoughts:
    Felt pretty good, I have some lower back pain that was bothered by the weight on my shoulders. Next week I feel pretty confident that I can get a PR on this lift as well.

    Been a while, life and pain have gotten in the way. I did get a bench PR about a week and a half ago, 335. I also PR'd on squat, 435. Unfortunately I hurt my shoulder and it made it pretty impossible to lift. It's feeling better right now, I will probably wait til Monday to get back in the gym.
