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?

    LiftingKid- Thanks. Yeah, I have done 1000lbs. before, but it's only once in a while. I'm not doing a whole lot of singles/doubles right now.
    K1M- Thanks. I'm trying to get to 250lbs. right now. Some days it's closer to maintenance, especially when I work, but others definitely above. There's been a few people that have asked my friend that works there what I'm using. lol

    I've had absolutely no time since Saturday. Way too much homework, besides working. Diet has been consistent. I'm just going to post my training yesterday and today, since I don't have a lot of time right now either.

    Deadlifts felt heavy today, but still did alright. 225 felt more like 315 usually does, but it's probably b/c I haven't pulled from the floor except once in a long time. I will be more often for awhile now though, but working up with more reps rather than doing heavy singles.

    Only 10lbs to go! May I ask what you would guesstimate your BF at? 240lb is huge!

    K1M- Thanks. BF% I have no clue. My major is political science. I want to be a cop. (They don't have criminal justice at my school, but I get a scholarship so that's what I chose.)
    Sid- ^^^^
    LK- Yeah I do. Got to find a way to add more weight though, b/c 715 is the most that you can put on there.

    Thanks everyone.
    RipStone- Thanks for stopping by. I know I haven't had time to check your journal recently, but I promise I will soon.
    K1M- I am not going to do alot of 1-2 reps. I decided I'm going to do more 4-8 and higher reps. Occasionally 3 reps, and rarely less than that.

    Really nice skulls, your tris must be a strong point in your bench. Also seeing your 6500 cals makes me want to bulk so bad, cutting and powerlifting just don't work together.

    Thanks everyone. And by the way, I only make 8 dollars an hour, so if I can afford it, pretty much anyone can. I just don't spend money on anything extra.

    Awesome 405 pull, PL.

    And by the way, I only make 8 dollars an hour, so if I can afford it, pretty much anyone can. I just don't spend money on anything extra.
    This especially gets my respect.
