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?

    The Road to 900

    Here's a video journal I am starting for my road to 900 equipped. This is week 1. It's half a week of training. I'm going to try and shoot every training session no matter how insignificant. I don't know whether the 900 will happen in my next meet or 3 meets after, but I am on a quest.

    Plus Travis and I had a little gentleman's bet on who would hit 600 raw and 900 equipped at 275 first. Figure this will put a little fire under his butt. One down and one to go buddy.

    Great video brother!!

    haha your 600 really lit me up big time. Stuff got real when you hit that. Hence why I'm doing a meet in September now then an equipped one in December. I knew real quick if I didnt hurry up and nail this stuff down you were going to beat me to it.

    ITS ON!!

    That's part of the deal. Nobody has benched 600 raw AND benched 900 equipped at 275 before so Vincent and I are racing to see who can do it first.

    Right now Vin is in the lead having dominated his 600 raw awhile back. I'll take my shot at it here in a couple weeks.

    This will be fun Trav. How about Ryan? I would have thought he'd have hit these. Maybe he was too big to ever compete 275. Friggin monster.

    I'm pretty sure but he'd be the only one

    Well Vincent already knows, I took a run at 600 a couple weeks ago and it didn't go as planned lol. But I'm regrouping and giving it another shot here in the near future.

    In the meantime I'm also doing an equipped meet in December. So to stay on track for that I threw on my old shirt yesterday just to feel some weight and ended up with a pretty solid 880lb 2brd for the day. Haven't worn a shirt in about 3 months so it was a fun change of pace.

    Week 7

    I'm about halfway through this training cycle and I am happy where it is heading. I have learned what I need to do and even more importantly, what I shouldn't. This was a solid week of training. I did a bunch of recovery work in preparation. SFW!
