The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Dumbbell Bench:
    55x10
    65x8
    75x8 (PR)
    85x6 (Last 2 were slightly assisted but a PR none the less even if it was 85x4)
    75x8

    Skull Crushers with EZ bar:
    65x10
    75x10
    85x10
    95x4(1/2)
    75x6

    Incline Bench:
    135x6
    155x2
    135x4
    135x5

    Bench Dips:
    BW+45x10x3
    BW+70x10
    BWx10

    Military Press:

    Note:
    Found out today that my shoulders are my weakest point. I use to have shoulder problems and my rotator cuff get's aggravated fast so I always worked them lighter then the rest of my body. Really shows in my Incline bench, or maybe I was just beat from the DB press, who knows. Over all a great workout, it was nice to change up the routine from WBB 1.1 for once.

    Note:
    Was happy for the Db press, I feel 75's isn't to shabby. Once I can kick it up to x8 or x7 for all the sets i'm going to start workin on 80's. Hoping to be able to use bands with some flat bench in the up comming weeks at the new gym. I also had been neglecting my abbs lately so I gave them a nice little workout. Over all it was a good workout, still pushing for those numbers but definitly working my lower day harder. Those deadlifts are addicting no matter what form they're in.

    Note: I hate bench....Deads all the way, maybe I'll just stick with DB bench, I feel like I accomplish more. Sometimes I blame my height and weight on my Bench Press, but that's just an escapegoat I know I need to eat more more more more more but my nub gains are over for my chest! It's time for the hard hard work. I achieved my deads goal yesterday, that was exciting, I had 2 people pushing me to go for it, so I shut up and did it. Next time, after squating 185x8 twice, I feel I can get my 200 x8 for squats. Maybe ill hit that goal too. Can't wait for sunday.

    Note: We added another person to the team a few days ago, from pbal17's fraternity. Awesome kid and keeps up with us. It's nice to get a group going to the gym who's serious about weights. Hit two PR"s today that i'm going to count. 190 for squats was nice, I could bust out that last rep if I didn't kill my self on the 205. 225x8 was also killer on my body. Lucky I had pbal yelling at me to keep pushing out the reps, my form was good so my lower back is awesome. Just overall tired, but awesome though.

    Note: Nice PR on my deads got another goal. Pbal17 was there and said my form was good, my back was dead after it thought. Not sure if it's because it's a brand new weight or I arched my back during one of the pulls. I'm normaly reallllly good at keeping my back straight. The ATF squats killed me

    Herandi- Was seated man, standing is killer. I've always had rotater cuff problems, it acted up after the military press

    Note: Finally got 175x8, I've been trying for this for god knows how many weeks, 165 x8 came really easy compaired to normal today and when I put up 175 for 8 I was stooked. My shoulders were sore from pushing military press extremely hard last time so I went light but trust me, it was still hard. My back feel sbetter today, I got enough rest and streched it continuously. Sould be back to normal by saturday. My routine has turned into more of a push pull split which isn't terrible, classes are starting and I work out with 2 other people so it's hard to do it but we manage! WE"RE all very determined to make the gym on our gym days.

    Herandi: I would love to try BGB, I've read over it numerous times, it's hard just trying to coordinate it with 2 other people , one being pbal17 who's stuborn. so we just kind of created our own 2 day split which is more or less push day and pull day. I think we are going to work with that for a month then see where that puts us. We're both out of the nub gains so it's just hard work from here on out!
