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?

    Well according to the few "calculators" I went through I should be shooting for 2600-2800/day but those produce pretty sorry results so I went ahead and bumped it up above 3000

    I mean I only weigh 135 y'know, and I'm eagerly awaiting breaking 140

    Yeah I know, I usually go between 1-230 when there's nobody there, but I had a company meeting from 1-330 so that was kinda bunk.

    Bent Over Barbell Rows 105
    vbar Pulldowns 135
    Pullups 4
    Cable rows 120
    Deadlifts 115
    Calf Shrugs 155

    Notes
    Eh, moved up in weights on everything this week except for the pullups, which ironically went down. Grip strength is really holding me back at this point, I'm sure I could deadlift at least 135 but my grip dies at 125. I mean at 115 by the time I get to the 5th rep it's already dying, but I dont' want to use straps because I want my grip strength to develop.

    Notes:

    Going up on lat raises next week, something felt really wrong with the tricep exercies, right tricep was REALLY tight, had to go down in weights/do less reps as a result.

    How are you liking Max-OT so far? I'm going to be switching to that routine the second week in October when I start my bulk. Your sessions are looking good so far, keep it up.
