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

    APF/AAPF No Limits


    Things were very shaky from the start and didn't go to well, but I did fight back and at least got a PR squat and total. This is how it went:

    weight- 145.5


    Squat:
    1st- 440xmiss(moved down about an inch, lost balance and stood back up, lift over)
    2nd- 475xmiss(I think the low rack height messed me up and I went down a bit funny)
    3rd- 475x 3 whites- EZ. Do or die. Went down strong and deep and shot out of the hole.

    Bench:
    1st- 245x3 whites- EZ
    2nd- 275xmiss (little more than half-way)
    3rd- 275xmiss (about the same)

    I was getting a great pop out of the bottom, but then just hit a wall. I'm really not liking this because all my board numbers are up and my bench is not.

    Subtotal- 720

    Deadlift:
    1st- 450x 3 whites- EZ
    2nd- 500xmiss(knees)
    3rd- 500xmiss(just under knees)


    Man I wanted that 500 so bad, but I was sooo shot after the long day.


    Total- 1170(way lower than expected). I also only hit 3/9 which is terrible, but at least better than a bomb.


    What did make me feel better is that all of my lifters did great! I was soo proud of all of them for just giving it their best and making some good choices on attempts. They really seemed to listen to what I have been teaching them and all came home with trophies and PR's. My GF hit over 2xbw deadlift with a PR 250. My "little" cousin who is bigger than me, but just turned 16 hit a huge raw PR bench of 260 and dead of 440. Two of my other training partners hit PR's on the deadlift(one being his first meet, the other his first sanctioned). Another friend of mine brought his sister down and they both did great. He threw on my first Inzer Poly bench shirt and he weighs 50 lbs more than me. He hit a huge PR of 360@198 that he had to fight for what felt like 30 seconds, but never gave up. My first regular training partner when I started powerlifting had recently taken time off for a few months because his mind wasn't into it and his work hours are ridiculous. He comes back and smoked a 525 pull @180 and narrowly missed 545.

    And last, but not least I want to thank all that made the meet happen. CT did a great job and with the help of all Team Taylor it was a very good meet. Can't wait to do some more of them. I also want to give my congrats to Vinnie, Cathy, Jay and Ed for some great lifting and thank Pete and Eric for helping me with my equipment and motivation. I'll be back bigger and stronger in december. Time to do the work now.

    Congrats, Latty. I guess your total is disappointing to you, but I would kill for a 1170 total. What do you think happened on bench press and deadlift? What do you plan on doing to fix them?

    Great job.

    Was the bench in a DD?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Great numbers. Sounds like your lifters had a good day too. I'd love to compete sometime down the road. Good job man, keep it up.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    Even though it wasn't what you were expecting, those are still some damn good numbers dude! Great job! Awesome to hear that the team did so well too.

    Good work, bro! It's funny that I always compare my lifts to yours, even though I'm bigger (and much better looking ) than you. Keep up the good work!!

    That is great. Good to see folks competing and not just talking about being a powerlifter. Keep at it, and before you know it, you will be hitting those numbers in warmups.

    Thanks everyone for the positive feedback.


    I think my main reason for not doing as well as I'd like is that it seems I always drop a few lbs the week of the meet and I believe this affects my performance. Most of my training is done at ~149-152 lbs and I competed at ~145. This next meet I'm just gonna eat until the meet and hope to weigh between 160-165. I'll see how my performance goes there. It will be my last meet as a Junior.


    Paul- yes, DD. Today I tried an open back poly for the first time and hit that 275 that stopped me 5 days ago. I'll experiment with both shirts going into this meet.


    BM- My next meet is going to be the APF Southern States in FL. Are any of your guys going to that one? I can't wait.
