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?

    I think its all thanks to dips and reverse grip rows!
    *lol* why such a shock?? You have been training bloody hard.... its all paying off.... I still think you need to be careful not to over-train though

    Sunday 9th Feb - 9/2/03 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 5 - Day 1 - Lower Body SHOCK

    Sunday 9th Feb - 9/2/03 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 5 - Day 1 - Lower Body SHOCK

    Feeling fresh after last week's deloading. Today's workout gets a 8/10. Long but all good.

    Lats still really sore from 3 days ago!

    Workout time - around 1.5+ hours

    Warmup

    Basic dynamic stretches and shoulder swings
    25lb deadlift, clean and press x 10
    Bodyweight squats holding onto power rack x 10
    25lb good morning x10
    25lb Hang Clean x 6, hang clean grip snatches x 6
    25lb Overheard squat x6, Drop snatch balances x 6 -

    Jump Squats

    Warmup - full jump squat 45lbsx5
    Rest - 3mins

    55lbs 2x6


    MidThigh Hang Powerclean

    Warmups - 55x1, Hang squatclean 55x2, Power snatch to overhead squat 55x2, Hang Powercleans 95x2, 135x2

    Rest - 3mins

    155lbs 3x3

    Felt just about right - explosive.


    Full Olympic Squat + Light Bands - No belt

    Light Bands kicking in halfway up
    Warmup sets - 45lbsx4, 95x3, 135x3, 185x3, 225x1

    Rest - 3-4 mins Tempo 20X0

    225lbs 3x4 - 70% 1RM
    245lbs 3x3 - 75%
    260lbs 2x2 - 80%
    Total Tonnage = 5945lbs

    All felt pretty explosive and fast - except the last rep of the 2nd set of 260lbs
    Bands didn't really add much extra resistance (extra 50lbs right up top), yet the exercise feels totally different! Makes me acclerate everything without really trying...

    Clean Pulls with Straps

    Pulled to belly button or so, with elbows up shrug onto toes
    Warmups - 135lbs x3

    Rest - 2mins Lowering weight in 3-4 secs, really stretching out the hams

    185lbs x3, 205lbs x 3, 225lbs x3

    Trying to save my grip for tommorrow
    Posterior chained felt nicely fried, entire back was pumped too!


    Core work and remedial work

    Rest - 30sec to 1 min between each alternating

    Swiss Ball Crunches
    Tempo 2111
    warmup - BWx10
    +12.5lbs 2x10

    Superman Back extension
    Tempo 2121
    BW 2x10
    Really felt these in my hams.


    Peterson Stepups
    Tempo 2122
    +4kg 2x10

    -------------
    Then

    Reverse hypers (on hyper bench)
    Tempo 2111
    BW x10

    Thanks

    But I think not yet, perhaps by the end of the year I will.
    I'm obviously stronger than the average gym-goer, at my gym, and definitely one of the more explosive dudes there

    Once I get my Full squat up to 405lbs then we can start to talk

    25lb deadlift, clean and press x 10

    185lbs+bands 2x3 - rest 3mins

    exploded onto toes

    All felt pretty explosive and fast - except the last rep of the 2nd set of 185lbs - that was a bitch coming out of the hole!
    Bar is still coming off my back a good 2 inches. Need more band tension - time maybe for average bands

    Thurs 13th Feb 2003 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 5- Day 4- Upper Body

    Thurs 13th Feb 2003 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 5- Day 4- Upper Body

    Good workout, got tons of sleep last night

    Flipped the order of the exercises around, it seems that the first exercise always feels harder! Must be due to neural reasons.

    DOh! Left my stopwatch at home, so ignore the rest time - I had to go by feel

    Workout rating 8/10
    Workout time - around 1 hour

    Warmup

    Basic dynamic stretches and shoulder swings
    25lb deadlift, clean and press x 10
    25lb good morning x10


    Overhead press

    Warmups - 45lbsx10, 65x3, 95lbsx3
    Tempo - 20X0 Rest - Alternating sets with Chins

    125lbs 4x6

    Felt harder than last week. Being the first exercise up sure doesn't help
    Bar speed a tad slower than last week with 120lbs, will stay
    here for a while until it gets faster.

    Entire Upper body really felt it, even pecs!

    Chins and Pullups

    warmups - pulldowns 40lbsx3, 70lbsx3, 100lbsx3, chins BWx1, +15lbsx1, 25lbsx1
    Tempo - 20X0 Rest - Alternating sets with Presses

    Power Rack Chins - partial L shaped grip
    +35lbs x5 - much easier than last week
    +20lbs 3x3

    Parrallel grip pullups - BWx6
    Staggered grip pullups - BW x 4


    Single Arm Dumbell Decline Tricep Extensions

    Warmups - 5kgx10
    Tempo - 20X0 Rest - alternating sets with Supported Rows

    30lbs 3x10


    Supported Rows - Wide Palms Down Grip

    Warmups - barx10
    Tempo - 20X0 Rest - Alternating sets with Tricep Extensions

    45lbs x10
    70lbs 2x6

    Great exercise! You can really explode hard and fully arch your back! I was pulling so explosively that the plates were wacking on the bar making a nice thump
    Almost plyo like in my speed and execution.
    70lbs feels about right for now, will stay here and add more sets.

    Rear delts as well as my mid back, retractors feel nicely stimulated. Great exercise for keeping muscle balance in the cuff complex I feel - sorta feels liike face pulls.

    I suspect I have put on 4-5lbs of fat. I look fatter!
    202lbs today - Around 1 year of training so far.


    Rear Lats Spread

    1st Pic Nov 1st last year 192lbs
    - 2nd today - 202lbs

    Sunday 16th Feb - 16/2/03 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 6 - Day 1 - Lower Body

    Sunday 16th Feb - 16/2/03 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 6 - Day 1 - Lower Body

    Legs felt really good today, really free and powerful.
    I tried a new exercse - Power Jerk - like it!
    Set some PRs, so its all good, if a bit long.

    Got some vids, will post later

    Wokrout rating 9/10 - one of the best in recent memory!
    Workout time - around 2 hours

    Warmup

    Basic dynamic stretches and shoulder swings
    25lb deadlift, clean and press x 10
    Bodyweight squats holding onto power rack x 10
    25lb good morning x10
    25lb Hang Clean x 6, hang clean grip snatches x 6


    Jump Squats

    Warmup - bodyweight jumps, full jump squat 45lbsx3
    Rest - 3mins

    60lbs 3x6

    Up 5lbs from last week - felt on the heavier side.


    MidThigh Hang Powerclean and Power Jerks

    Warmups - 45lbs x2, 60lbs x1, 75lbsx1+Power Jerk, 95lbsx1+Power Jerk, 115lbsx1+power Jerk

    Rest - 3mins

    135lbsx3+ Power Jerk

    155lbs 3x3+1 Power Jerk

    I love Power Jerks! The key is to get the legs to power the bar up, using the shoulders/chest as the launching platform. Then finish off with shoulder/arm drive. Unlike the push press, it's mostly legs, and boy is it fast!
    I managed to bang my chin on one rep, but then figured it out
    The heavier sets created a tendency to use the arms to early, will have to work on that, and my rack is horrid, hard to balance. Its a bit of pain having to lower the bar down though - I suppose its a good bit of eccentric stress for my upper body , but I wouldn't mind just dropping the bar down on platforms.

    Really feels like vertical jumping power jerks, lots of quads, an explosive quarter front squat pretty much.
    Boy was its a killer on my forerarms/grip these hang cleans!


    Full Olympic Squat + Light Bands - No belt

    Light Bands kicking in halfway up
    Warmup sets - 45lbsx3, 95x3, 135x3, 185x3, 225x3

    Rest - 3-4 mins Tempo 20X0

    One full Squat jump 30 secs before each set

    280lbs+bands 3x3 WOot New PR!!
    235lbs+bands 3x3

    Everything felt pretty solid, stable and strong! I'm surprsied I had it in me, after all the stuff I did before!
    Strength continues to rise!!!

    Some guy came up to me and said "Nice depth"


    Clean Pulls with Straps

    Pulled to Sternum, with elbows up shrug onto toes
    Warmups - 135lbs x3

    Rest - 2mins Lowering weight in 3 secs

    185lbs x3
    235lbs 3x3 WOot New PR!!

    Grip shot from Hangclean, used straps
    Ass, starting to low, fixed on set3. Pulling with arms a tad to early I feel.
    Man a few months ago this weight would have nailed me! I was able to power the weight up even after squats and stuff!


    Jumping Box Squats

    Box set at parallel - knee angle >90 degrees - wider than shoudler width stance.

    Rest - 40 secs

    BW 6x3


    Core work and remedial work

    Rest - 30sec to 1 min between each alternating

    Swiss Ball Crunches
    Tempo 2110
    warmup - BWx10
    +15lbs 3x10

    Weighted back Extensions
    Tempo 2010
    +2kg 2x10
    Really felt these in my hams.

    -------------
    Then

    Reverse hypers (on hyper bench)
    Tempo 2211
    BW 2x10

    Nice long pause at the bottom- fully stretched lower back.

    Tempo - 30X0 Rest - 3mins

    +30lbs 4x6WOot New PR!!

    up 2.5lbs from last week - felt pretty easy.
    I wonder if those power jerks yesterday helped? Most probbaly the tricep extensions and overhead presses I did last week.
    Nice synergistic effect going on here


    Single Arm Dumbell Row on Bench

    Warmups - 30lbsx5, 50x4, 70x3
    Tempo - 30X0
    Rest - 2mins between each side

    Parallel grip 100lbs 2x5

    Up from 95lbs, I wasn't gonna do 100s, but I said what the hell, and it didn't feel as heavy as I thought! Nice speed as well. I had to work, particularly the last 2 sets, but the weight didn't dominate me.

    Wednesday 19th Feb 2003 - 19/2/03 - Road to 365lb FullSquat - Week 6 - Day 3 - Lower Body

    Good session just too long. Some built guys were doing some heavy ass to the floor squats next to me when I was doing my oly lifts, I've chatted to them before so they were not total strangers as such. They were doing 3.5 to 4 plate squats for reps - pretty cool!

    I also tried some full squat cleans and squat snatches today! ALl those drop snatch balances I've been doing started to feel real easy so I thought I try out the real deal today! Turned out ok, hard to balance, but not too bad. I don't like the squat cleans too much, too tiring, but the squat snatches are a kepper. I don't know how Oly lifters can do this with 300+lbs
    ANywa I filmed my attempts to study form, so I"ll post them, laster on today, and I also accidently photo'ed those 2 guys squatting nearby - had the camera in the wrong mode
    Attached - see pic

    Stay tuned for the vids - I actually fell on my back in the squat clean attempts, went off balance! Had a good chuckle about it with those 2 guys

    Full Olympic Squat + Light Bands - No belt

    Light Bands - normally I wrap these around a 25lb plate on the floor with a 45 ontop, today I used a 35lb plate instead with a 10 and 45 ontop. More tension, feels perfect now!

    Actually after watching the vids, my gym buddies were only squatting down to parallel, most probbaly because of the wooden block, but I think they still went down all the way. maybe
