The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    i'm gonna try high volume on my shoulders to try and strengthen them up. low volume hasn't really done the trick, so i shall try teh high volume. tomorrow is DL/row day, probably gonna hit up some rack pulls/lockout work. i've got a friend coming with me, he's about 150 lbs and he wants to get big and strong.

    Pulls/rows

    rack pulls, pins set as low as they go:
    barx8 (shrugged each rep)
    135x8 (shrugged each rep)
    185x8(shrugged each rep)
    225x6
    285x6
    315x6
    365x6
    405x4

    didn't go as heavy as i could have on these, i ripped a callous open real bad, and wanted to get some rows in still. i was really proud of my partner, he was doing 225 on these for reps, first time he's ever pulled. genetic freak, his dad is so strong. he's going to be a monster

    cable rows:
    100x8
    120x6
    140x6
    160x6
    180x6

    DB rows:
    80'sx6
    80'sx6
    90'sx6
    90'sx6


    all in all a good workout. i definetely prefer pulling in its own day, rather than pairing it with squats. no other real comments other than those.

    Assisted Bench

    started off with a bunch of stretching, as always, and some foam roller work on my back from those pulls and rows the other day.

    dynamic close grip decline:
    barx10
    135x2
    135x2
    135x2
    155x2
    155x2
    155x2
    225x2
    225x2

    bench dips:
    BW x 8
    BW+1 plate x 8
    BW +2 plates x 8

    tricep pushdowns:
    30x10
    50x8
    70x8
    90x8

    DB bench, palms facing in:
    50'sx15


    done. i got this workout done pretty fast, but it was still pretty intense. thats the way workouts should be. luckily this workout was good, even after an intense front squat session in the kitchen while making dinner.

    Squats

    box squats, just below parallel:
    barx10
    135x6
    135x6
    225x6
    285x6
    315x6 (add belt)
    335x6
    365x6 (add knee wraps)
    405x1
    425x0 (missed this)

    i think i could have got that 425, i just did so much volume before it...it wasnt really that it felt so heavy, i just felt like my endurance was already shot.

    power squats:
    4 platesx6
    6 platesx6
    8 platesx6
    10 platesx6

    zercher squats: (first time trying these)
    barx10
    95x6
    135x5
    135x5
    185x3

    did some decline sit ups with a 45 plate and some reverse hypers and i was done. those zerchers tore my arms up, chalk helped a bit. not a bad workout, my squats all felt good. im hoping those box squats will cut down on the soreness. i think squatting once a week is going to be beneficial, i can have more workouts like this.

    your zerchers will get easier with time. my arms have kind of become used to them, and I've only done them a few times.

    solid workout man, I'm sure you would have had that 425.

    thanks dude. i put 225 on the bar and just kind of held it in my arms for a bit just to see what it felt like. pretty heavy, but like you said, im sure they'll get easier as i do em more.

    incline db:
    30's x 10
    40's x 6
    50's x 6
    60's x 6
    70's x 6
    85's x 4

    rolling DB ext w/mini's:
    20's x 8
    30's x 6
    40's x 6
    50's x 6
    60's x 5

    JM's, long pauses, concentrated on form:
    bar x 10
    95 x 8
    95 x 8
    135 x 8
    135 x 8
    155 x 8


    did a lot of stretching and some foam roller work on the legs. as of now the back feels pretty good for pulls tomorrow, it was pretty tight today. i think it was due to sleeping so much, but it was nothing some stretching couldn't fix. i'm going to head over to that powerlifting gym hopefully tomorrow, maybe later on in the week, and see if i can find some guys to take me under their wing.

    that foam rolling seems to be picking up popularity quick!

    Pull/row

    6 in elevated DL, conventional stance, double overhand, no belt:
    135 x 6
    135 x 6
    185 x 6
    225 x 6
    225 x 6
    255 x 6
    315 x 3

    those elevated DL's are pretty tough for me, i'm going to keep doing them. those and lockout work, my whole deadlift sucks.

    DB rows:
    80's x 5
    90's x 5
    110's x 5
    120's x 5

    cable rows:
    120 x 8
    140 x 6
    180 x 6
    220 x 6

    upright rows w/cable: (hate these)
    50 x 6
    70 x 6
    stack x 6


    done. pretty good pull day. my friend thats in the marines showed up at the gym tonight, i was pretty happy to see him. he did some rows with me. i tried my first maximus shake after this workout with a giant bowl of rice, its pretty much like drinking a liquid brownie. for those of you wondering, i'll keep tabs on if it adds 10 inches to my penis, gives me super human strength, or makes the ladies flock to me.

    Me too. Baconators are clinically proven to increase squat percentages.
