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?

    Did you actually try to focus on the peak by using concentration curls or thickness using drag curls?

    What's a drag curl? You makin' funnies about 'focusing on the peak' or can you actaully do something that'll help it out? I always thought peak size was pretty much all genetics. I pretty much just do normal barbell curls because they look the manliest.

    Back

    Deadlift
    225 wu
    315 wu
    405 x 1
    455 x 1
    510 x 1

    Lat Pulldown
    200 x 7
    220 x 6
    220 x 6
    220 x 5

    Seated Low Cable Row
    210 x 8
    230 x 6
    240 x 5
    240 x 5

    510 was smooth, flew off the ground, had to grind it out just a teensy bit at the very top. I think heavy rackpulls are definitely helping with my lockout, I'm shooting for 520 in my first meet. This was without a belt, no straps, 100% raw. I'm curious if I'd get anything out of a belt, never tried maxing out with one. I've squatted with a belt before and got absolutely nothing out of it.

    You would, too. You need all the help convincing others around you that you're manly.

    Are you actually asking me if there's a way to change the shape of your bicep? I was only kidding. I thought you would get it but it went right over your head. You are a chick though, so it's acceptable... this time.

    And **** you for pulling 510 off the ground. Seriously. My dreams don't even get that big. Congrats on the PR, big guy.

    Calves

    If I don't start picking it up soon I'll be benching more than I can ****in squat. I almost wonder now if the incorrect form I've been using for the past 2 or 3 years, and the fact that I've never realy worked my hams much besides back squats, has lead to an imbalance. I'm gonna start pushing it more with gm's even if my lower back hurts a little because I think my hams are seriously lagging. Makes sense when you look at how close my front squat is to my back squat and the fact that I had so much trouble with squats last week when I corrected my form. My legs definitely aren't small, but something is obviously wrong when I'm pulling over a hundred pounds more than I can squat.

    It's common for the hams to take a back seat to the quads, may want to give the stiff-legged deads a try.

    Yeah I was doing sldl's a year or two ago before my back started bothering me. Maybe I'll alternate them in with gm's once in a while.

    Thinking about practicing sumo deads once in a while. For whatever reason I can pull way more from the ground conventional, but once I get to about my knees I always lose steam. I can rack pull quite a bit more from the knees sumo style than conventional.

    Nice work man. You can try DLs with bands and (like you're already doing) rack pulls from your sticking point.

    135 wu
    225 wu
    275 x 5
    315 x 1 long pause

    My chest was still sore from Sunday so I wasn't expecting much today but I still suprised myself a little. Had the guys give me the press command for 315 as if I were in a meet because I wanted to get a feel of what my opener should be. Felt great, even with the pause. Wasn't expecting to hit 310 x 3, can't believe how light 300+ is starting to feel. Tried some close grip bench but my wrists hurt like hell so I quit after one set.

    You bench, along with everything else, raw, right? 315 with a pause is something I'd love to hit at some point in my life and you're already there at your age and being a female.
