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?

    Nice job on the SLDL. I never tried those yet. I started doing just the regular deadlifts about a year ago. How much more have you been feeling them in your hams, glutes and back versus the regular ones? I may try the SLDL this year.

    Thanks. Well, I used to do them with completely straight legs and I never felt them at all in any place other than my lower back/ spinal erectors, but when I started bending my knees I started feeling them more in the hamstrings and glutes. I bend and unbend my knees alot though, so I don't know if they are true SLDL, but whatever. I have a hard time ever really feeling anything in my hamstrings though, except for glute ham raise, but I guess I feel the SLDL more than anything else. Today I didn't really feel them too much in my hams. I think it was because the weight was just a little too heavy that I let my back do most of the work, but that's just a hunch. As far as how they compare to regular deadlifts, it's hard to really know if they are hitting any part harder than any other part. I take them over deadlifts for reps because it's easier to keep in good form.

    I was sick and on antibiotics.

    Box Squats:
    95 x 5
    135 x 5
    155 x 5
    175 x 5
    195 x 5
    205 x 3

    That's all I did today. I just need to get back in the swing of things, but I also went indoor rock climbing, which I hope will bring up my lagging grip. It's tough.

    Thanks. I did not think I was going to be able to get five. 205 seemed heavy, even 155 seemed heavy, and I thought I was going out on a limb putting those other 45's on there, but that's the way it seems to be with squats, everything seems heavy.

    Great squats Noah. Keep it up with the non-smoking too. I gave up daily binge drinking/borderline alcoholism for about a year and a half now and feel great. It is hard as hell kicking a habit like smoking or alcoholism but keep it up as it is worth it!

    I started taking lexapro yesterday. Hopefully it won't have any effect on my lifting.

    Yeah, I switched to full body, and I'm trying to cut fat now. I started rock climbing, and since I'm doing that alot, a split routine takes up too many days, so I'm doing full body 1-2 a week.

    This isn't my first workout since my last post; I skipped making a post for a few:

    Front Squats:
    165 x 8, 7, 6

    Good Mornings:
    165 x 8, 8, 8

    Pull Ups:
    8, 7, 6

    Bench Press:
    145 x 8, 6, 5

    Leg Raise:
    10 x 8, 7, 6

    Lateral Raise:
    12.5 x 12, 12
