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?

    I have the powertec rack.. i like it. I haven't used any other racks though, so I can't really compare it to anything.

    I've used a powertec rack for the last two years. I like it.
    If money was no object I'd probably go for the elite one, but the powertec one does maybe 70% of the job the elite one would at 10% of the cost.

    I'm in the same situation, working out alone in the basement.

    I think you'll be very happy with your purchase!

    I started the same way in my garage. I eventually added two benches (one flat, one adjustable), a good bar (texas power bar), a lot more weight, a GHR, a sled, a squat box with risers, boards, and plenty of chains and bands.
    Now two of my old lifting buddies come out to my house in Bum**** to train 4 times a week... so you'll probably have company eventually. But honestly, it would take a lot before I'd ever consider going back to training in a commercial gym.
