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?

    Seated military press 185 lbs for 4 reps, using a full range of motion. It's hard to set PRs on a cut.

    Dammit, I missed the cutoff ... oh well:

    June 19th, Row 1000m in 3:36.4 (9 second PR).

    That puts my ranking for the 2007 season at:
    500m #138 out of 843
    1000m #285 out of 642

    Not bad since those rows are part of my warmup, haha!

    I got 90's up for 8 reps on incline DB press.... on a cut! I am so psyched about this one because I have never lifted that much and then to be making these kinds of gains on a cut are awesome!!

    Bench 230x10, suprised myself. DB press only except to max out for a strength check. Squat max is next friday, looking for 315x8. We shall see.
    Change is the constant, the signal for rebirth, the egg of the phoenix.

    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold
