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?

    Good stuff. Yeah I love those extensions, but my elbows certainly don't. That's pretty much the only reason I don't do them any more.

    serioulsy dude. i was at work today and my elbows were hurting SO BAD. i havent felt it in my triceps this good since the first time i tried JM's. JM's didn't hurt my elbows too bad, i think i'll stick with those mostly on ME days. i might try the rolling extensions on DE days, who knows.

    had a day off from work today so i thought i'd do some military press. i couldnt tell you the last time i did military press, not really my favorite lift, my shoulders are weak and my arms are long. they do it every now and then at westside, so i figure, why not. i just ate a burrito with double chicken, 3 eggs, and an opticen shake with milk post workout. its about time to hit the hay.

    i've been thinking lately about tweaking westside a bit, and trying to adapt it to what i need to work on. my deadlift is definetely my #1 priority to fix, so i think i'm going to try giving DL's and rows their own day. i'm going to do more lockout work with DL's, rack pulls, etc. i'm scratching the DE squat work for a deadlift day, and to improve on my bench i'm going to do more tricep isolation. so it would be something like

    sunday- heavy bench/triceps
    monday- pulls/rows
    wednesday- dynamic bench/shoulders
    thursday- squats/GM's
    saturday- strongman day, keg toss, atlas stones, etc

    i'm going to try this out, i think it's going to be the best fit for me. i want to put in a strongman day as well. if i don't see the results i'm looking for, i will tweak it until i start getting what i want. but looking at the last few months of training i hope this should do it. any comments are gladly accepted.

    Looks good to me. Remember, westside is a template; you can tailor it to fit your needs, you're starting to understand what works and what doesn't....good stuff.
