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?

    Bench

    1. 120 x 10
    2. 120 x 10

    3. 170 x 10
    4. 170 x 10

    5. 220 x 10 ..... PR
    6. 220 x 5.5 ..... 14 second negative

    7. 170 x 6 ..... reverse grip
    8. 170 x 6 ..... close grip

    Time = 24 minutes

    Woke up early and got this in before work. Man I hope the FDA never bans ephedrine. First time I ever did reverse grip bench, felt really strange. I have no idea what the purpose is either but I think I'll do them again. It certainly breaks up the monotony. When I record half a rep it means a negative, hopefully a long one.

    PS well if you're trying to get good at the powerlifts then at least add in a squat workout too. Korte's 3 x 3 program is a good choice.. though my opinion be merely my own, I think you are doing a grave disservice by not incorporating the curls

    My 1-AD Results

    Feb 2, 2002
    Bodyweight - 213
    Bodyfat - 24%
    Max Bench - 275

    Feb 16, 2002
    Bodyweight - 221
    Bodyfat - 22%
    Max Bench - 300

    Side effects were minimal and tolerable (sluggishness and irritability). What amazes me most is that although my diet remained absolutely horrible, I actually lost bodyfat.

    Tomorrow I'm gonna start taking the remainder of the Tribex-500 I have left over from last year. It should last about a week and will most likely do nothing.

    LMAO. BioTest sucks(Though Surge is mighty fine.)

    We tend to think of Sisyphus as a tragic hero, condemned by the gods to shoulder his rock sweatily up the mountain, and again up the mountain, forever. The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other. He even dreams of it as he sleepwalks upward. Life is unimaginable without it, looming always above him like a huge gray moon. He doesnít realize that at any moment he is permitted to step aside, let the rock hurtle to the bottom, and go home.

    Great job you old bastard! You truly are an inspiration and the change in your physique has been great. In another year post your before & after pics at Elite when you're benching 350-375 and your bodyfat is 12% and make em' eat crow. Tighten up your diet and add some squats and you'll be all set.

    bench press

    1. 120 x 10
    2. 170 x 10
    3. 220 x 3
    4. 300 x 1
    5. 220 x 11.5

    shoulder press

    6. 120 x 6
    7. 120 x 4

    bench press

    300 was a lot easier this time around. Today I didn't drink any Mountain Dew, I only smoked one cigarette, and I even ate some oatmeal for breakfast.

    I had fully intended to do zercher squats until I got about halfway through my first set. I have no muscle in my lower back. I am weak. Someday I will be a strong mofo.

    Just out of curiosity, are you using your 1-Test yet?

    And I can empathize with you on the being weak thing. It sucks.

The truth is that Sisyphus is in love with the rock. He cherishes every roughness and every ounce of it. He talks to it, sings to it. It has become the mysterious Other.
