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?

    Awesome MPs, dude. I'd say your pressing strength has come way the hell up. No doubt you look different than you did a few months ago. You've been workin hard for sure. I think you should max out next week and see what you numbers are. You're sure to pick off at least one PR.

    good workout today. wasnt sure on the squat number but turns out i guessed right at 265 this cycle.

    squats : warmup, 205x5, 225x3, 250x12... guys, the diff im seing in my squat is phenominal. i dont think ive ever squatted 275 for more than 3, and i think i could hit it for 7-8 comfortable reps now. this feels awesome.

    Thata boy!!! I'm glad to see you increasing at such a good pace! PM me and I'll help you with the increases for your next weights. Like I mentioned to Dan, you could probably do with extra volume and add in more accessory exercises since both of you want to put on more muscle mass. We can talk about that, too.

    That's a lot of squats with 250, bro. I'd say you have got something going there with your legs. Keep it going as far as you can. No doubt you could pull off 9-10 with 275 too. I can't wait to see what you max out with those new legs of yours, bro.

    Wow, 140x10 is serious on the Mil Presses. Seated or standing? either way, ****in tremendous!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    very weak workout today. dunno whats goin on with my bench.

    bench - warmup. 205x5, 225x3, 245x6... pretty weak. my lower back has been definitely irking me when i get my arch settled. idk what is going on with it, but its affecting my pressing.

    chins : x10, x10, x6, x4... i couldnt even do 40 today.

    BW dips : 5x10, these felt nice at least.

    Well, first of all, that is not a weak workout. Don't insult yourself. I know you expect more, but look at the big picture here.

    Second, what is "going on" for you is that your body needs to catch up a bit. Look at the progress you've made in the last couple months. You've gained some weight, you've increased your work capacity, you've increased all your loads in all your lifts and you are more intense about this game. So, time to throttle down for a week or two and let your body heal up and get used to it's new "environment". Make sense? This is your body throwing a flag at you, saying "wait up a second". Ignore it, and you begin red-lining. Doesn't mean you won't make more progress or that you will definitely get hurt, it's just risky.

    bako, coke - thanks men.

    keith - thanks for the PM help man.

    K - splendid device is always, bro. i will take it to heart, and most likely will just lift light next week for my deload then head into cycle 3. im bumping this sh** up into hardcore mode.

    borracho - lol, it was not very good for me is all i meant. thank you for the words man.

    had a soccer game tonight. i started varsity because one was out for being red carded. played every single minute and it was a blase. 2 40 minute halves, plus two 10 minute overtime halves, then we went into a PK shootout and ended up winning 8 to 7 haha! fun stuff. i am EXHAUSTED.
