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 tried it man, but in my opinion i don't like it. I don't want to start ww3 though and argue with people who are going to tell me to use it. Hey Risk if you do then maybe you and I could compare things and discuss it sometime.

    Thanks for posting guys!

    no i here that a lot from people. It takes some getting use to but once you get a lot of foods in its easy. But if you don't want to do it then don't do it, its just one of many tools.

    So i was supposed to do my clean & jerk training today, but i had to call her and tell her i couldn't come in as i was feeling way to sick! What she gave of a routine for the time being is just

    Snatch Pulls
    Snatch Squats
    Bench Press
    Lat Pulldown
    Lots of Ab Work

    Not very in depth but it was just scribbled down on a piece of paper, so when i get in next time she should give me something a bit longer

    things are still pretty good, did my snatch day yesterday, she also showed me this exercise called 21's for your biceps, it was more just a fun thing then for what im trying to achieve, pretty sweet though!

    Wow so i haven't updated this old thing for a while...Over the past few months things have really slowed down, my numbers went up and down, sodid my attendance and hers. She got divorced, we moved into our own gym, battling to pay fees.

    Things are settled down now and im getting back on track, training harder than ever for the past 3 weeks. I've got a mate with me now who enjoys it as well so she gave me a key to the gym so we are going in the mornings before school now as well.

    As for numbers i snatched 60kg a few months ago and a 70kg C & J for a bodyweight at the time of around 85kg. Im around 93kgs at the moment, but haven't tried to setand PB's for either movements lately,i just been working on strength like she says to keep doing.

    She pays for a lot out of the gym including parts of the lease and equipment, so me and my mate are going to help her out by fundraising regularly to helpher out.

    Anyway i will try update more...

    cya later...

    I don't know why but my front squat is more than my back squat, it must be a psychological thing, plus i find it to be more comfortable on the front of my shoulders. Because of this my squat is only equal to my bench, which is all around bodyweight at the moment, but i need to find a way to get my back squats higher, im sure through persistence and hard training i will succeed.

    We have our own club now...i've been fundraising for the past 6 hours...raised $300. Going to sell more tickets on monday.

    Got my first competition on the 17th of February and i'm really excited about it.

    My coach only wants me to lift lighter weights though since it's my first comp and she wants me 2 get all 6 lifts so then i get bonus points.

    Then the next time i come back for Round 2 i will lift even heavier (but still not my heaviest) and i'll set new PB's and still get my 6 lifts...so i'll get lots more bonus points, then i'll do this again for Round 3.

    Then come Round 4 i will lift heavy but still aiming to get my 6 lifts.

    This competition is called the Queensland 500.
