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?

    Very good training session tonight. Squats moved better than normal and that is the heaviest straight weight squat I have hit in well over a year. Then I followed that with some pulls w/chains which also went well. I have put on 7+ lbs in the past 3 weeks. Hopefully I will put on another 8-10 over the next 7 weeks going into the meet.

    Bench felt strong. I had no spotter/liftoff and all the reps were smooth. Lockout felt stronger than normal and the last double matches my meet PR. I think I def had another 5-10 lbs in me for a double.

    Felt like trash coming into this session. Tired, sore, etc. I realized that I am going to miss my "heavy" session this Friday because I have a graduation dinner for when I finished my apprenticeship. So I pushed it today and did real well. It'll be good for me to skip a heavy day anyway. I'm 6 1/2 weeks out right now. Feeling good

    10/1
    Bench-only @ Pete's

    Bench w/bands

    *1 set of Onyx Monster minis doubled and 1 set of Onyx Micro minis doubled*

    45x3
    95x3
    115x3
    125x2(missed 3rd)
    135x1
    145xmiss(very close)

    *1 set of Onyx Micro minis doubled only*

    175x11


    Pete got all of the new bands from Elite so we had to try some out. According to their chart and the way we had them setup, the combo should have added ~200 at lockout.

    Awesome, Gene's meets are great!

    That bench session looks like something Frank crafted up.

    Yea man, I can't wait!

    And Pete is the O.G. when it comes to ridiculous band tension on bench.

    10/2
    SQ/DL

    Squat(raw)

    135x3x2 sets
    225x2
    275x1

    *belt*

    325x1
    365x1
    390x1(Ties PR)

    That matches my best single in a monolift with spotters and today I did it walked out by myself and convincingly deep. Felt good.

    Deadlift(raw)

    135x3
    225x2
    315x1
    405x1

    *belt*

    495x1
    530x1(missed 2nd on grip)
    530x1

    The bar I was using was bent, although less bent than the first bar I grabbed. It was rolling out of my hand on the first set and even though it came up easy, I lost grip on my overhand at the very top on the second rep. I got pissed, waited two minutes and pulled another easy single and held the lockout for 5 seconds.

    Wide-neutral grip pulldowns

    5 sets of 10

    Weighted abs

    2 sets


    Getting amped up for this meet. Less than 6 weeks left.

    Great session with the crew tonight. Everyone was killing it. After a few weeks of experimenting with different knee wraps, tonight I went back to my 8 year old Metal all blacks and this is the strongest I have felt squatting this cycle. I will stick with them for the meet. Pulls felt strong too and I thought I had that last pull in me. It flew off the ground and then I just hit a wall a few inches before lockout.

    4 weeks out!!!

    My bench has been feeling good the past few weeks, but I wasn't expecting to totally smoke my PR today. I had no liftoff or spotter and even the 235 single was smooth. Feeling good with less than 4 weeks to go.

    That was it. I worked a 12 hour shift today. I was completely exhausted. Today was a scheduled training day so I got in there and got some work in. Less than 4 weeks out!

    That was all I had time for. I couldn't train with everyone this weekend because I had girlfriend obligations, so I just went in by myself and did this quick. That is the first time I have ever squatted 400+ without knee wraps. I made sure to sink it and I actually stalled a few inches out of the hole but was able to get through it. Nowhere near where I want to be, but still a nice milestone to hit along the way.

    My gym only has one "good" bench. It was being used today, so I benched on the other two. The first one is ridiculously slick and once I drive with my legs I literally slip ~4" up the bench. So I switched to the other crappy bench which has two sets of pegs, one too high and one too low. So basically my setup and bench felt a little off. Either way, to hit that close to my max for two singles isn't too shabby.
