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?

    Charles Fay Training Log Nummer Zwei

    I had a log on this website for a good while, unfortunately when the site crashed, my logs were lost here and i did not start up again and just maintained my log on the badattitude website. For anyone interested i have competed in the 275 and 308 weight classes, multi ply in the APF. My best lifts are 1058, 660, 733 2414@275 and 1008, 688, 738 2424@308. My last meet was southern states where i did pretty well but tore my already damage pec on my left side. As a result i have been gradually coming back from that and have been doing alot of highland games practice. I competed at my 2nd games in January and got PRs in the weight for height with 14ft and the heavy hammer with 74' 10. I am just an Amatuer B in Highland games and dont have a throwing background, so it is not natural for me and i have alot of improvement. I compete again march 1 in Ft Lauderdale. Hopefully i can get back on the platform this fall. Otherwise i am a Firefighter/Paramedic at a very busy fire department and am a very new parent, so i work my training around my life and work.

    Saturday Bench

    Warmup: Cuff complex, bowling pin swings, band flyes, flat db bench 3x20, chest supported rows 2x20

    BB Bench w/35lb KBs hanging off of quadded minis (extra 70lb)
    barx10
    95x5
    135x5

    BB Reverse band bench w/EFS avg bands
    235x5
    275x3
    315x3
    365x3
    405x3
    add slingshot
    455x3
    took off the bands and slingshot
    225x15

    Incline DB Bench 2x25

    Chest supported rows x20, 3x10 supersetted w/cable extensions 4x12

    DB Curls 2x15

    Im still weak on the bench from the pec injury, im able to move the lighter weights explosively, but once the weights get a little heavier things slow down alot and lag on my left side. My best reverse average band press with the EFS bands is around 515x1 and 405x3 felt somewhat challenging. It is just going to take a good while to get my raw strength back up.

    Monday Accessory

    Warmup: Cuff complex, indian club swings, double overhead KB press 3x10, pulldowns 3x15

    Standing BB Overhead Press (cleaned from floor)
    barx10
    95x5
    145x1
    155x3
    175x3
    195x3
    145x10

    Pressing was supersetted w/pullup ladders of 1,2,3 reps on gymnastic rings

    DE BB Bench w/bands
    barx20
    bar+doubled monster mini bands 2x5
    135 2x3 close

    1 arm KB snatch 53x5, 72x5, 96x5 supersetted w/band pullaparts 3x20 and med ball wall throws 3x20

    I felt pretty good today. I am working my way back into doing pullups again. After i tore my pec recently i would get a tearing sensation while trying pullups so i had to step away from the movement for several months. Being that i am not very good at them to start with, i have a long way to go to get anywhere near my best (14 reps) that i did a few years back weighing 270.

    Today was just a raw deload getting a little bit of volume in. My body is starting to get pretty fried at this point because i have been doing alot of throwing with the highland games implements on my off days from lifting. The low back and knee are feeling it a bit and i have two or three more throwing sessions left and a couple of workouts and will then deload for the Ft. Lauderdale Highland Games next Saturday. I wont be lifting at all after tuesday of next week.

    Thursday Squat/Dead

    Warmup: GHR 2x12, 45 degree hypers 2x15, band hip abduction x30, band knee raise x20, stretching then put on ace briefs and canvas suit.

    Circa Max Squats on box
    bar+blue bands x10
    bar+blue+green bands x5 (kept this tension throughout
    145x3
    235x2
    325x1
    415x1
    465 x2 started getting depth here
    465 x1 stopped here

    Speed Deadlifts Standing on 2" box 315 8x1 (double overhand)

    Finished with sled dragging forward and backward

    I had to shut down the circa max work today for multiple reasons. One is that i normally wear the thinner boss briefs under my canvas, the metal ace briefs just are too thick and were binding me up a little above parallel so that when i got to depth on the box it was compromising my form and i was feeling it too much in the low back and hamstrings even though the weight didnt feel too heavy. Lesson learned on that. I think my body is also a bit worn out from previous squat cycles and highland games. I was doing this squat cycle to help out my team mate Lee who is preparing for a meet in late may. At this point im going to bow out of this cycle and do some raw work which should allow me to get my body healthy again with the lighter loads and get my conditioning up again.
