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?

    Anyone going to WABDL Worlds?

    It's a big meet, so I thought maybe some people on here might be going. I've got my tickets for it already so I'll be there for sure. It would be cool to meet there if a few of us are going.

    It's in Anaheim, CA.

    I may be going. Are you competing Guido? By tickets I assume you mean plane tickets. I did not see any tickets for sale on their site.

    I'll be competing in both bench and deadlift. And yes, by tickets I meant plane tickets.

    You have to be qualified to go by having placed top 3 in a WABDL meet in the past year. Have you qualified?

    Does that mean no spectators?

    Unfortunately, I just got back into lifting, and even if I tried I could not qualify.

    No I believe spectators are allowed. Might be a small $5 fee or so. Would still be worth it, though!

    I had no plans of going this year..........But I bought my plane tickets today! I still need to send my entry and get my room. I have not made up my mind what class I will lift in yet. I am qualified for 198,220,242 and 259! I will most likely lift 220. If anyone goes look me up.

    Cool, Wayne. Are you lifting submaster now or will you be doing Class 1 or Open?

    Wayne, Class 1, Hhhahhhhaaaaaa. I think he has been booted out of the Class 1 division. I'll be going to this meet too. I hadn't decided if I was going or not, but Wayne needs a liftoff person. I think Wayne will be lifting in the P&F division on Thursday. I lift in the "old fat guy" division on Friday. I have to get my World record back. Tom Manno "chipped" me with 1.1 lbs. I'll BRING it to this meet and SMOKE his record:evillaugh

    Yeah I have never been able to lift class 1.

    I will most likely lift 220 P&F open and Submaster on thursday.

    This better be my 600+ meet or I will be pissed and the guys at the gym will make fun of me! I should have done it a long time ago.

    A couple of the guys I work out with may be competing. I think they're trying to figure out if they want to pay for the trip or not. Mostly they compete in the APF a WAPL. We had a one-off WABDL meet earlier this year a few guys qualified.
