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?

    Record Breaking Deadlift Routine

    Record Breaking Deadlift Routine

    As Submitted by:

    I would like to share with your readers how I achieved a Florida state record. I was born in Orlando, Florida. I have been training for 14 years now. I have competed at 198 pounds and as low as 165. I currently hold the state record with a deadlift of 515@160 and have actually locked 530. I have only competed twice in deadlift and broke the state record in my second competition. My best bench press in a double poly is 425 @ 165. I am ranked in the top10 by monstermuscle magazine, top 20 by the American Powerlifting Association, and in the top 100 in the United States. I have always felt that I had a good bench, but when I trained for my first deadlift contest I learned a lot. My training is a mixture of Westside Barbell and old school techniques. My workout is as follows:

    Box Squats-8 doubles w50%
    Glute Ham Raises
    One other assistance move (front squat, leg press, hack squats, barbell lunges, then calves)

    We pull a light sled - 4 trips for recovery

    Reverse-hypers, abs(standing abs,kneeling abs,etc)

    Sled-60% of what we pulled tuesday

    Abs (this time either leg raises w/chain,decline w/ plate behind your head,spread eagle situp)

    Goodmornings, Pullthroughs,and either Back Extensions or Reverse Hypers

    We don't do any regular deadlifts between meets. We do speed deads every 4 weeks only. We use 60% for s singles, 45 second rest. We do these standing on 2-2x6 boards. This is the exact program I used to break the state record with no previous deadlift training. I am also currently preparing for a bench meet with a record in mind. I will write about my bench press training in a future article.

    Thank you,

    Rich Daniels

    for gods sake it doesnt take much more than simple common sense to throw together a training regimen to add strength
