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 IPA push/pull

    6/7
    IPA Nazareth Barbell Strength Spectacular push/pull

    Weight- 144.8

    Bench:
    250- 3 whites(waaaay too slow)
    270- 3 reds(missed about half-way up)
    295- 3 reds(missed a few inches off the chest)

    Dead:
    420- 3 whites
    480- 3 whites(Amateur 148 Junior WR)
    500- 3 reds (around knee level, got out in front of me)

    Total- 730

    I felt very weak warming up on bench. My opener was very slow. Things didn't get any better on second and third attempts.

    Then Pete benched and blew us all away. HE went 4 for 4 and broke the Amateur 242 Junior WR. He went 455-485-505-545!!!

    I was so amped to deadlift by this point after the poor benching(losing weight affects my bench, but not my deadlift). Opener was cake. Then I jumped to a 20 lb meet PR and to break the WR held by my buddy of 475. Smoked 480 pretty well. Then I had 490 down as my third, but everyone convinced me to take 500. I rushed my setup a little and the weight got out in front of me and I lost it halfway up.


    All in all a great meet. The deadlift was my best yet by bodyweight(3.31xBW). Congrats to Pete and all the other lifters who kicked ass today.
