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?

    Rest/Pause

    What do you think? I'm gonna start this on Monday for bench, squats and arms.

    Example..so for these lifts I will do

    Bench:

    225 x 1, 225 x 1, 225 x 1, 205 x 1, 185 x 1, 135 x 1

    Squat:

    315 x 1, 315 x 1, 315 x 1, 295 x 1, 275 x 1, 245 x 1

    Regular Standing Curls:

    55 x 1, 50 x 1, 45 x 1, 35 x 1, 30 x 1

    Hammer Curls:

    50 x 1, 50 x 1, 40 x 1, 35 x 1, 30 x 1

    French Press:

    (guess) 100 x 1, 100 x 1, 90 x 1, 85 x 1, 80 x 1, 75 x 1

    Tricep Pushdowns:

    Regular sets x 6, weight does not go high enough...

    For Deadlifts I'll probably go with heavy 3's and everything else will be in my journal.

    Just curious if you feel that you get anything out of doing sets of 1 reps?

    you'd be better just doing regular sets...

    I sometimes do r/p on chins, do 15-20, rest a few seconds, crank out another 5, etc. It looks more like you're doing singles.

    not sure what % of your 1rm that is, but that looks like something a powerlifter would do the last month before a meet, rest/pause is good, but why not use more reps, like doing 3x3 or 3x5 instead of like 6 sets of 1.
    May you be in heaven an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

    It's the way Mentzer trained and I wanted to try it.
