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?

    squat max on friday.

    so i got squat max on friday and i squat 375 but i wanna get it up to 405. and its been about three weeks since i squat maxed at school and its comming round again. our work out on squat rack is like so.

    monday:back squat 5x3 85% of squat max, military press 3x8
    wendesday: front squat 5x3 85% of clean max, upright rows 3x8
    friday: squat max.

    so given the workout that i have to follow what would be the best strategy for me to follow so far as how much weight to workout with, so that i can suck out the last 30lbs. and when i'm warming up for my max how much weight and rep should i go throught. i normally do 135 for five reps then 225 for 2 reps and then 275 once.

    I think going for 405 is being optomistic. I'd go with the sets above, but go for 385-390 for the last single...I know 4 pps is tempting, but I'd rather hit a lower 1 RM than miss one any day of the week.

    me too, if you don't get it, you have something to strive for.

    I agree with RST. There's a lot of confidence that is built when you don't miss weights because you make smart jumps. 4 Plates is still there. Strength is a marathon., not a sprint. If 375 is your best right now, I would look for 390. The next time around, 405 should be right there. Be patient, you'll get it.
