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?

    ME squat @ Cell Block

    *dynamic warmup*

    Reverse monster mini band squats, 14 in box, 70 lbs off bottom:
    *viking briefs*
    145 x 3
    235 x 3
    325 x 2
    415 x 2
    525 x 2
    615 x 2
    615 x 2 (suit bottoms)
    665 x 1 (loose straps up)

    reverse hypers:
    4 plates x 2 x 10
    5 plates x 2 x 10

    hangman abs, green, 3 x 10


    done. im tired as f***, i tweaked my wrist a bit on that last set of squats, i'm not sure what it was. hopefully it feels better tomorrow. i could have gone 715 x 1 with my straps cranked and knee wraps on, judging by the way the 665 felt. at one point we ran out of plates because there were 2 groups squatting, so we put the 100's on, and it was a 55 lb bar, so thats why the numbers are weird.

    jeff hit 1015 x 1 in single ply briefs only with the bands, doubled 985, there were some big squats tonight. the cell block meet shall be great. also heard some stories of paul keys benching last week...

    one of the monster minis snapped on the side i was spotting, the weight was 700+. my back is still not happy with me for having to catch it, LOL.

    still been busy, i'll catch up with everything and order my shirt this weekend.

    I have no doubt you'll be right where you need to be in the near future. I dare say you're right about there now given the speed of your progress.

    Nice squatting Lones! Great numbers! I am so glad you have cell block to go to to push you!

    I think we jinxed you wednesday because we were talking about the bands snapping and what if and it happened to you on thursday.


    Vicki and I are lifting today because I was sick yesterday.

    Have a great halloween. I will post pics of Lauren in my journal this weekend for you and Vicki to see.

    Strong squatting Lones! Those reverse bands will get you used to carrying heavy weight on your back, which is always an issue for us beginners as we get stronger.

    exactly. i like them for the most part, the only thing i don't like about them is they throw my groove off slightly...i'm sure you understand what i'm saying.

    i think we're doing them 1 more time next 2nd week, then they are deloading for the meet...the reason you didn't see too much assistance was because they all took heavy singles in suit bottoms & knee wraps, so i spotted for that, and there were 8-10 of us. after that band snapped we made sure and had 2 guys on each side. the one we replaced it with still had a nick, so i was still weary.

    no speed pulls either because there was an A/C unit on the DL platform. (i didn't ask why, LOL)
