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?

    MAX WEEK, MAY 21-25

    Alright here it is, maxing again this week. Felt great today did ATF squat (or atleast as far down as I can go) and incline, ending with some pullups!!!

    ATF SQUAT : 135x5, 185x3, 225x1, 275x1, 300x1, 315x1 solid, had a little bit left, tried and failed 335 way too much, ended with a solid 320x1 also I didnt use a pad, just the bar.

    INCLINE BENCH : 135x3, 175x1, 185x1, 195x1, solid 215x1

    PULLUPS : Decently wide grip, palms out, 16 solid... struggled a bit with the last one but pretty sure i got it.

    Was really happy with squat, doing it ATF now I was hoping to get ~300 but I got suprised!! Incline I dont usually do at all, last time I maxed 185 so the DB shoulder presses and mili's and push press must have helped it a lot, 215 was way over what I was hoping for. Pullups I was happy with, I got 13 last time so +3 isn't all that bad.

    Probably do bench and something else tomorrow, gotta save energy for clean and Deadlfit wed. and thurs.!!!

    also weighed a pathetic 182.5, but my maxes made me happier!

    Thanks Coke, your words are truly motivating

    Great day today! Got 15 pounds more than I wanted on bench, and did a decent push press and got a few more dips than expected.

    BENCH PRESS : 135x5, 135x3, 185x2, 205x1, 225x1, 235x1 easy, 250x1 easy, hard but solid 260x1!!! Felt insane!

    PUSH PRESS : 145x2, 155x2, 175x1, 185x1, 200x1 solid and kind of easy, I felt I could have done atleast 205+ but I didn't feel comfortable with my spotters so I stopped there. Besides, you dont want to go too heavy on PP.

    DIPS : Did full dips on dip bar, 19 full dips. I was hoping for 16 so I was happy with 19.

    Great day overall today, my bench made me very happy. Also weighed 187 lb.

    Thanks again Coke

    Today I was pretty happy, I was hoping for ATLEAST 225 clean and I got 235.

    POWER CLEAN : 135x3, 135x3, 155x1, 175x1, 185x1, 215x1, 225x1, 235x1, 240x0... was just a tiny bit away from 240 but couldnt quite finish it. Next time!

    PUSHUPS : 39 Meh, pushups, whatever...

    Ill probably go in to weights tomorrow morning to max on Deadlift, hoping for atleast 360 or so.

    Sorry, been so long since I posted on here, long weekend

    Starting to kind of do the posted workout were supposed to be following for 2 months, we'll see if its any good.

    Did some INSANE squats today! it feels so much better (suprisingly to me) with no pad and going below paralell on squats. Weird...

    Squat : 135x5, 190x5, 225 3x8 INSANE!! was dead afterwards.

    Pullups : 1x11, 2x10

    DB Rows : 50lb 3x10

    calf Raises : BW 3x35

    L's 45 sec each way.

    Jogged .85 miles i was so close to finishing a whole mile! if i didnt have such a weak mind i could have... ah, next time i guess.

    These new squats rule, i'll def. add on to my next max.

    Thanks coke

    God I feel terrible, i havent lifted since wensday only 2 times this week!

    I got a freind with some weights in his basement, went over to his place today for a little training.

    Deadlift (finally!) : 135x8, 225x4, 275x1, 295x3, 315x3, 325x3 felt totally wiped after each set.

    Pullups : 3x10

    Went outside where he has a bunch of PL / strongman stuff and messed around with it. Did some sled running, a tire flip or two, C&J, keg toss/press, and some tbar rows... feels way weird outside. Didnt do much just learned about those lifts and probably going to come back next time and do some strongman stuff!

    Ah yeah thats cool. In this gym early morning its in my town and not 20 minutes away in the other town. I only lift here because of gas It brings back good memories from 7th and 8th grade lolly-gaggin around in the weightroom watching the all state lineman lift weights... i would think "damn, ill never be as strong as that man!"... but look now, i'm already stronger than him (not disrespecting him, he is an amazing lineman and i would kill for his skill at the sport)

    bench 135x5, 185x5, 195x5, 205x5, 210x5

    then i left... felt really light headed, way too hot, and felt like barfing. went home and slept for 4 hours. maybe ill set my alarm a little to late next time and skip god damned plyos.

    Decent day today... tried to lift at 6am but fell back asleep, so went up 17 miles and did weights there. Gas is cheap today! 2.93!

    Power Clean : 135x3, 165 3x5, 205x3

    DB Curls : 30 3x10

    DB Rows : 55 3x10

    Didnt do that much, but clean felt good.

    Went swimming with the most perfect girl in the world after, her names rachael. We're finally goin out after like 2 years of loving each other :P
