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?

    APF Southern States meet results with video 10.05.13

    The meet went well, not how I wanted to end the year, but I'm still happy with the results. 3-4 weeks out I decided to lose weight and start a diet that will help me do that. So I got with Tim Gale from the Jersey Iron crew and he set me up and got me on the way towards a goal I wanted to accomplish at weigh-ins. After 3 weeks of dieting, I lost 8lbs with no cardio. I weighed in at exactly 242lbs which was the goal and was able to bench a 5lb PR. I know it doesn't sound like much, but this is the first meet where I didn't have to water load or change the way I eat the week of the meet. I kept eating exactly how I was eating the previous two weeks. So I owe him and Tone a big thanks!!! As for the meet, I finished with a 633 squat (no wraps or sleeves), 440 bench (5lb PR), 727 deadlift (5lb PR). Ended with an 1800 total @ 242 w/o sleeves or wraps. Since this was my first meet under those rules, this will be a PR by default. Thanks to Chris Mason from AtLarge Nutrition, Ken Anderson from Anderson Powerlifting, Tone Barbaccio and Tim Gale from Jersey Iron, Justin Cobb from New Dimensions, and Scott Lamb from Vanilla Gorilla Strength Athletics.

    Thanks guys! Paulo, I wish that was my opener, lol. That was my 2nd attempt which gave me 1800. I got greedy and wanted a PR total so I jumped to 744 and missed at my knees. I think I was good for 733-738. I do plan on pulling 744 at RUM7!!!
