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?

    I put FOUR plates on it and deadlifted it!

    First of all, I'd like to thank WBB for all the info and inspiration.
    I'd like to thank all the posters here for information and inspiration again, someday I'll catch up to all y'all!

    I love you all!!!

    I hit a one rep of 225 twice, after doing sets of 45, 135, 135, 185, 185 to warm up! I did the one rep, knew I couldn't do another one so I put it down so I wouldn't over strain myself, but I was PUMPED!!

    WOOOOOOO!!!
    I love you all!!!

    I got back to my room here in a res and almost cried!
    THANK YOU!!!!

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    And if you don't hit 230, 225 will have been pointless. Not to discourage you or anything though
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

    Actually, the last time I did deads was like two weeks previous.
    One week's rest will be great.

    Including the fact that one guy in TO made an internet challenge to me for 3 3minute K-1 rounds. So no weights for a bit, just bag work. Haha.

    Hmmm, maybe. It's all about learning to relax and don't be tense. I actually do fairly long bagwork sessions and I've trained in stand up fighting styles previous.

    Remember, stand up striking endurance does not equal grappling endurance.
    At least you should have the 'harder' one, grappling,

    I wasn't saying one was harder than the other either way. I was simply saying that it must be challenging. That's because I have the conditioning of an 80 year old female. No offense to 80 year old females.

    WELL I AM! I can get very......'involved' when discussing MA, sorry. Hahhaha!
    Loved the anology.

    Edit: I should also say, at the end I was just deadlifting the bar for blood flow, and on my last rep I had planned for the bar only, I dropped it on my knee again, tore a chunk of skin off the knee. That'll slow down my bag work with kneeing a bit. Hah.

    AGAIN!

    Also, my recently dislocated shoulder seemed to be fine for the deads this session.

    Congrats on the 225 man.

    Did you tear a chunk of skin off or just get a cut? They used to have us super glue cuts shut on places like the knee or elbow sometimes. Just a thought.

    225Ibs=cool one
    200 pounds 6 foot 3 is this the best no no neh, i want to be 6,3 oh yes that is true, in fact i am so what am i troublin about. The only thing is I wanna be 240 pounds just like arnold is in pumping iron, now in this modern day and age this is achievable, without no gear? certainly sir, but ultimately however hard i true old arnie in his prime will be better than me and that hurts, but will I be better than over 99% of the male british population? you got it! which is consolation ill admit, but consolation for who pudzain , ill tell ya, consolation for the slaker. Pudzian your a slaker.

    As great as it is to set PRs on the bench and squat, NOTHING can top a PR deadlift. Something about pulling up more weight than you ever have an deads is the greatest!

    Woah! When I saw the "FOUR plates" title, I thought you were gonna post four plates per side!!!
    :o

    I did my first "three plates" deadlift last week, but it cheated because I don't have six total 45lb plates in my garage, so I used four 45lb plates, two 35lbs plates, and two 10s.

    Always great to receive advice from the older posters.
    I better superglue my hands for grip on the bar as well.

    I thought so too...
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    4pps is doable by just about anyone above about 170lbs if they train for a few years, so keep working on it!
