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?

    Meet results

    I did the same meet that I did as my first meet(last year) yesterday. We brought 8 people with our team and for 5 of them it was their first meet. I was very proud of everyone. Lot's of PR's were hit and everyone totaled. Even my 'little' cousin(he's bigger than me, but only 15) went 9 for 9 and hit PR's on both squats and deads and matched his PR on bench. My girlfriend had an awesome fight to pull a 220 PR deadlift for her last lift. I was very proud of her on that. Anyway, my meet went like this:

    Weight- 152 WTF. I was weighin like 5-7 lbs light all week(146-148), even the morning of the meet. They used a really old balance scale that was hard to read and I can't imagine he was getting accurate readings. One particular guy I know got on the scale at 149. Didn't believe it, went outside and jogged around for 5 minutes and weighed 145. Yea, ok. Whatever, I was there to lift, not argue and it was just an unsanctioned meet anyway.

    Squats:
    375-miss(read below)
    375-smoked
    405-pretty easy. Felt good for another 10-15 lbs

    Bench:
    245- no problem
    270- little slow, but got it.
    280- few inches off the chest/missed(brought it too low)

    Subtotal: 675

    Dead:
    405- felt like the bar
    435- not too bad
    455- bit tougher, but smooth

    total: 1130 PR

    I was quite happy with this. I came in wanting a PR total and got it. If I weighed in accurately I would have gotten a 7.5xBW total. I went 7 for 9 which is a PR and also the first time I went 3 for 3 on deads.

    I didn't know what happened to me on my first squat. The rack was very weird and unstable, but I still figured I'd smoke that weight. Especially when I took it again and moved it friggin fast as hell. Then we got home and watched the tape. We all started laughing our asses of when we saw me getting all ready, walk up to the bar, get set and oh wait he forgot to buckle his belt. I did the lift with the belt on the last hole which is where I keep it inbetween attempts. I alway tighten it right before I go out. I push off the belt hard and that is what stabilizes me. On the attempt you see I go down fine and as I start up I am very shaky and lose it. Dumbass. Cost me a squat PR too because I played it safe and took that weight again on the second and only jumped to 405 for my third(should have been my second attempt). Oh well.

    nice job latman, keep up the nice strength, maybe since you were the ligthest out of your class, you could gain some weight to maybe aid in your advantage too
    JEEP is a 4 letter word, therefore it must be dirty.

    This body. This body holding me. Be my reminder here that I am not alone in
    This body, this body holding me, feeling eternal all this pain is an illusion...

    I am addicted to fast food...

    Thanks man.

    I also just found out that our team won the team competition. Considering this was our first meet together that's not too shabby. They just basically add up points earned from 1st place, second, etc. and see which team earned the most.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
