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?

    Comments:

    Lacking energy for this workout. Been getting off at daylight the last 4 days. Sleep patterns have been jacked up as we've had a DWI campaign over the week that has left much room for improvement on the recovery side. The speed on the lifts felt slow, though they all felt pretty good.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    I heard a stat yesterday that a person drives drunk an average of 800 times vs 1 time getting caught. Scary thought.

    It really is ridiculous. Quickest way to piss me off is for a drunk to act like it's no big deal.


    Metcon -

    4 miles w/ 50lbs (60sec on/120sec stepping it out) -

    50:56 (12:44/mile)


    pushups, pullups, foam rolling, stretching


    Comments:

    Not too bad of a 4 miler. First time doing this with boots. Wanted sub 50 and would like to get it down to 46 or so. Feet held up pretty well. Only thing that rubbed was the back of my ankle as I'm not used to wearing anything more than a low top.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    It's not bad Bako.

    Mwood, why boots? Just another added level of suck really. I'm also considering doing some things work related that would require me to ruck with some weight for an undisclosed portion of time. If that's the case I need to start toughening up my feet so they'll hold up.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    You're one tough S.O.B. lol

    I guess I'm curious because if I was running around in combat boots I would probably have some sort of related goal or plan because, as you said, running in boots sucks.

    Have a plan? That makes too much sense haha. Really just trying to toughen my feet up so I can push for longer distances without tearing them to pieces.

    Workout: Mock Meet

    Location: Low Country Strength, Charleston SC

    Weight: 175.6lbs



    Back Squat -

    315lbs (20lbs PR)
    335lbs (40lbs PR)
    355lbs (60lbs PR)
    365lbs (70lbs Raw PR)


    Bench -

    225lbs
    245lbs
    255lbs (+5lbs PR)
    Miss 265lbs


    Sumo DL -

    315lbs
    miss 335lbs
    335lbs
    350lbs (HY guiding my shoulder back)



    Comments:

    Traveled to Charleston to lift with HomeYield's guys in a mock meet/training session. In the gym for 7hrs. Absolutely thrilled with the squat PR. Felt fantastic the entire time. The bench felt decent. On my miss at 265 I had pressed it out to about the height of a 3board but couldn't lock it out. Triceps are weak. My DL is terrible. Positioning was all wrong and caused me to get way out in front on the missed 335. HomeYield tweaked my stance and the next go at 335 flew up. The rep at 350 was quick off the floor but I had focused too much on getting my hips down that I forgot to lean back a bit. It started out front of my shoulders. As soon as HomeYield started to guide my shoulders back just a bit the lift came up smoothly. I'll throw up some video as soon as I can get it done.

    It's really been a combo of the design of the training split and the atmosphere. HomeYield really knows how to design a good split and the atmosphere down there is absolutely amazing. We had like 11 guys all squatting heavy, some working up over 700lbs. My training partner rode down with me and ended up hitting a 50lbs PR. Just a great environment.


    Here's my single at 365:

    Decent first session back. I've got some sharp pain in my left elbow. Radiating down from my rear delt. Overuse more than likely. Just have to be smart with the recovery.

    I don't know your situation but I found moving my grip in a couple inches on incline let's me push a lot more weight. But my triceps are my strength so I don't know if this will work for others.
