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'll probably do a meet later this fall. My focus right now is to get as lean as possible to give myself as much room as possible to grow into the 220's. I'm about 210 right now, somewhere around 10% bf. I've been this lean before, but I always seem to fizzle out once I hit 10% or so. I've always wanted to be shredded just to see what my physique looks like at that conditioning.

    I've been trying out intermittent fasting for the past 4 weeks, and I really like it so far. It also works perfectly with my schedule. I eat my first meal around 1 pm, workout after work at 5 pm, have my post workout shake, then I'll eat a huge dinner around 8 or 9. Sometimes if I don't get enough calories in I'll have one more small meal an hour or two after dinner. I try to not eat anything past 10 pm, so I'm usually fasting for about 15 hours.

    As for actual diet wise, I'm doing Low/No carb except post workout. I'll take in maybe 100 grams of carbs post workout, usually my protein shake and a couple bananas. Every 10 - 14 days I'll do a higher carb refeed day, I just kinda go by how I feel. Protein is 200 - 250 grams. I adjust cals by my fat intake. Right now I'm probably averaging somewhere around 2500 - 3000 calories a day. Try to get in at least 100 grams of fat minimum.

    Finally hit the big 600 on squats. Back squat form is continuing to get better, I'm pretty convinced all the sumo pulling has made the difference. Triple body weight squat will fall pretty soon, body weight was around 207 today.

    Lol! Honestly the reason why I wanted to take a crack at 600 was after reading your log and seeing you'd hit it.

    I'm almost wondering if sumo is going to be your pull focus now. Way to grind 660 out.

    Bench: 255 (9/30/13)
    Dead: 515 (9/2/13)

    It definitely is right now. As I've said before, I notice a big carryover to my low bar back squat as well.
