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?

    Not terrible. The pulling felt smooth. The benching was a bit tough with such a long descent time. Run a couple weeks of this and then ramp it up.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Not bad. A little taxed on bench from yesterday. Wasn't as quick as I would have liked. The SSB squatting was rough. Even for only 3 sets that sucked haha.

    I've been all fucked up lately. Came down with an infection that caused me some issues. Didn't eat for a couple of days. Spent the last few days just taking it easy and eating what I want. Will get back into the split next week.

    Being sick blows, feel like I take many a step back when that happens. Eat eat eat and hydrate sir and it'll come back right quick.

    I appreciate the comments guys. Kinda up in the air with some things right now. I'm contemplating getting back into competitive BJJ. Went and rolled seriously for the first time in probably 7-8yrs. Going to alter my training by a fair amount, but at the same time I'm not 100% committed on this yet, so we'll have to see what I come up with.



    Workout: Up in the Air 1

    Weight: 189lbs


    Bench (70%) -

    45lbs x 10 x 2
    95lbs x 10 x 2
    135lbs x 5 x 2

    195lbs x 4
    195lbs x 4
    195lbs x 4
    195lbs x 4
    195lbs x 4


    10 Minute AMRAP -

    3 pullups strict
    3 ring dips
    5 pullups kipping
    5 pushups
    20 sec rest

    Total - 8 rounds + 3 + 2



    Lat Pulldowns -

    150lbs x 10
    150lbs x 10
    150lbs x 10

    BJJ sounds like a blast i've been seriously thinking of doing some kind of training be it BJJ or Krav Maga. Seems like a lot of fun plus a great workout at the same time, god knows I could use the cardio. Solid benching Chub.

    Thanks Kevin. I'm contemplating it. It's been a long time, and I miss it, but not 100% sure I'm going to go through with it. If I jump back in, it'll be to compete.

    How detrimental to strength training would you say throwing BJJ or any kind of combat training in to your routine is?

    Strong workout too, you crap on my DB row strength.

    I think it really depends on how competitive you want to be. If you want to do it casually for some decent training I don't think it'll hurt you TOO much. If you want to be competitive then your strength training will suffer. All the rolling, pulling and pushing, and striking really do a number on your joints and tendons. You have to be careful so as to not injure yourself by stacking heavy training on top of all that.

    Alright I've got a better idea of how I'm going to be structuring this.

    Will be grappling 2 or 3 days a week. Mon/Wed/Fri. I'll be running a slightly modified full body 5/3/1 on Tues/Thurs/Sat. That'll give me one full day of rest off. Not sure how my body will handle all this but I'll probably use my light week of grappling as an extra day of rest.


    5/3/1 will be structured like this:


    Tues -

    Bench 5/3/1
    Oly or SSB Squat 3 x 5 (RPE 5,6,7...during the 4 week wave these RPEs will increase by 1 each week)
    Back/Posterior Work 75 total reps (includes both lower back/hamstring as well as upper back)
    Extra Tricep Work 30 total reps
    Ab Work 50 total reps


    Thursday -

    Conv DL 5/3/1
    CG Bench/Floor Press 3 x 5 (RPE 5,6,7 each week RPE increases by 1)
    Back/Posterior Work 75 total reps (includes both lower back/hamstring as well as upper back)
    Extra Tricep Work 30 total reps
    Ab Work 50 total reps



    Saturday -

    Mil Press 5/3/1
    BB/SSB Lunge 3 x 5 (RPE 5,6,7 each week RPE increase by 1 per set)
    Back/Posterior Work 75 total reps (includes both lower back/hamstring as well as upper back)
    Extra Tricep Work 30 total reps
    Ab Work 50 total reps




    Comments:

    Will have to monitor overall volume and the way my tendons and joints feel. Each BJJ session is preceeded by about 15-30min of dynamic warmup and stretching. There will be a few sets of small things like band pull aparts and face pulls on each lifting day.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    First BJJ day of the new split. My timing is way off. I don't feel horrible on the mat and I feel like I'm seeing things, my timing is just so far off now that I can't land things. It'll come back. Either way it was good to be back on the mat. Did a lot of side control work and then rolled. Good stuff.

    Good first session. Going to try and leave 1 to 2 reps in the tank on each final working set. Having an issue with a groin strain so I cut out the squatting. Finished in right at an hour. Should be a decent split.

    Worked until about 5. Up at 9 to go to BJJ. Pretty good class. I was really slow getting started. I'm starting to feel a bit better. It'll slowly come back.

    Off at 830am...up at 2p to get into the gym before turning around for work. Had about 45min to get as much done as I could. Hopefully my schedule will wind back down this upcoming week. We've been having a big DWI campaign so little sleep trying to get in all my workouts.

    I don't think I'm looking much pressing strength so far. The test will be when I can iron out my schedule and actually get back into squatting.

    Hit my gi class tonight. Worked 3 submissions from side control. Feeling a lot more fluid on the mat right now. It's coming back. Hopefully I'll keep moving in the right direction.

    45 min to get in a workout. Sounds like me..lol. Kinda hard to get in that groove. Good luck with the BJJ. You used to be all about it from what I recall.
