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?

    285 was light, so I put 315 on. Very surprised I got it four times, definitely not complaining. Squats are starting to feel very good. Jumped more than I was supposed to, but they feel light.

    Stump- Just throwing some stuff together when I get to the gym. Makes things interesting on my off days.

    Coke- Thanks a lot for taking the time to check out my journal. I really appreciate having some solid lifters in here keeping an eye on things. That goes to all you guys who post in here, it is greatly appreciated.

    Don't remember exactly, but some plyo work and about three miles on the bike. Nothing special, but enough to get a sweat going.

    Coke - thanks man. Not where I want them, but getting there.

    Stump - Pretty strict. No knee bend. Just below chin on each rep. Not much of a lean, pretty straight back. I would post a vid, but I don't have a cable to right now. Soon enough, when I hit two pps.

    I really like doing them. Haven't in way too long. Used to push press a lot too. Worked up to some pretty decent numbers in college, but completely dropped them for the last few years. I really want two pps in the next two months.

    No weightlifting or plyos, just weigh in. Down to 215, so a five pound drop since the start of the new year. Not great, but something.

    Interesting workouts Mike... I like the mixtures of lifting w/sports & plyo... keep it up & keep lifting heavy...

    Sorry about the lay off man...
    Hopefully the time off will do wonders for ya.. looks like it's already doing awesome for your workouts.

    Coke - Thanks as always. Just tried them for a change. Probably do them every other week.

    Bear- Thanks for dropping in. Trying to drop weight, but still put on some strength. So far it's working. I'm just off for the winter, so it's kind of nice. As soon as it is nice I will be humping pavers again and building stuff.

    Irl- Nothing big yet. Still have a ways to go to catch up to where I was, but it's getting there. The 5 x 5 is working well right now, especially doing it the right way. Hopefully in a few months of being consistent the weights will look decent. Until then, I am pretty weak.

    One hour of full court ball last night. Followed by another hour and a half of shooting. Starting to feel like I am getting some wind back. Lifting and ball? later today.

    Deadlift
    135 x 5
    225 x 5
    245 x 5
    255 x 5
    275 x 5
    345 x 5
    395 x 1

    Standing Milis
    135 x 5
    145 x 5
    155 x 5
    165 x 5
    205 x 5

    Deadlifts were sumo. Switched today just to see and I have no clue what I am going to stay with. They felt great after the break. Militaries were strict as hell. Feet close together, two inches apart. Straight legs, down to chin on each rep. Push pressed the weight up and then did five strict. Last one very heavy and almost lost it. Next week will be tough. Couple of miles on the bike and done. Need to start doing more accessory work, atleast what is called for. I like the two days lifting a week and as long as I am making gains and losing weight I will stick with it. Basketball still later tonight.

    Coke- Thanks man. Playing a little b ball is a lot better than doing cardio.

    Reset my scale. Weighed in at 211. Down nine pounds since the start of the year. Much better than I had thought. Need to buy a good scale. No workout today, but two hours of basketball last night.

    Garbage workout. Bench was awful, probably because I did the bodyweight challenge yesterday. Stupid on my part and I deserved a horrible bench day. Getting close to switching things up and following a West Side template. Probably next week. I liked that before and with a good month back in, I think I am getting close to being ready for it.
