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?

    DL's

    Sumo. stacked 2 plates for each foot, not too high off the ground. raw diggity. boy do i need to work on these.


    135x8
    185x8
    225x6
    285x4
    315x2
    350x1
    385x0 (miss, although i did move it about 5 inches off the ground)


    DL's are my least favorite lift, because i am pretty bad at them. my squat is over 50 lbs more than my DL. i can't do more than about 365 off the floor. i got some chalk though, and that helped with these. not too sure how my gym is going to feel about the chalk, oh well, i was 1 of 5 people there on a saturday night, haha. what can i do to increase my DL? more speed work? rack pulls? bands or chains? eating more oreos? help!

    OREOS brother! Take a vid of your next pull if you can, might just be a simple setup issue.


    Nice F'N squats.

    thanks man. i'm really tall and have a gut, that could be the problem. i'm borrowing my friend's video camera soon, so the vid shouldn't be a problem.

    1 gatorade
    opti men multi

    Sassquatch (i'm sure guido's already thought of that one, i just thought of it on the way home and lol'd)

    Squats:
    barx10
    135x6
    225x6
    285x6
    315x5
    385x5 (add belt)
    405x1 (add wraps)
    425x1
    445x1 (NEW PR!)

    i smashed last week's PR. the 410 felt easy, and i was pretty confident i could do more...so i just threw 2 10's on each side and went with it. pretty pumped. wasn't even going to do GM's after these, but i did plan to do them. heres what i did instead:

    leg curls:
    stack, 2 x 5

    leg extension:
    stack, 2 x 5

    farmers walk:
    90's about 50 yards
    120's about 50 yards


    after working today, and this, i'm toast. i've also been laying out every day to try to tan up for the beach, yes, i know, i'm gay. tomorrow is going to be a hard day at work, i have a few HUGE routes that i have to load up. DE bench tomorrow. i might do it during the day again, i went today at about 1, and i liked it pretty well.

    Dude you're killing the squats. I saw you were worried about your pulling. Here's what I did to go from 315 to 365 in a couple of months and then 405 over the next couple.


    DE DLs off of a platform. 8 x 1. The combination of the platform height and Chuck Ts put me about 3-4" above where I pull from the ground.

    RDLs. Did a lot of rotating between a sumo stance and conventional stance.

    Rack Pulls. Did a lot from a couple of inches below the knee. Once again rotated feet position a lot. Really worked on my lower back.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.
