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?

    Are you gonna lift in a single-ply fed? If not, get a double-ply Metal suit. Metal squat suits are awesome

    If you're going single ply, then yes, get the v-type squatter. If you're going double ply, go for the pro squatter. I don't need to explain how good these suits are. If you squat wide, then get this suit! Now!

    Careful, it's much more suit than the regular v-type. I couldn't get to the bar with the viking v-type.

    When I got my suit I had a RAW squat of ~295. It's been a little over a month and I hit 405 yesterday... probably like my 6th or 7th time in the suit.

    And I'm a crappy squater and I don't have any experienced PLers to teach me stuff .

    Yeah, did one session since that, and I could get to the bar, but it didn't allow my hips to get down properly. I'd probably pull in it once I work it in a few more times.

    I have used this suit- I thought it was really good- stacks of support- although I have heard its not everyones first choice for deadlifting since it can be tough to get into a good start position.

    Yeah, Jim Wendler and Matt Bash. Call Elite and you'll more than likely get one of them.

    I'm pretty sure Matt doesn't work there anymore. Ask for Jim. Tell him RHodes sent you. He'll just make fun of me, but it might get you the right suit. I'm people that knows people.
