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?

    Fuzzy's 352 squat, 352 RDL, and flawless power clean form. :d

    Enjoy!

    squats, 330 and 352.

    Video


    RDL, 308x3, 352x1 (yes, last reps got messy, single was good!)

    Video


    power cleans, 132x3 (plus a press), 185x2 (no chalk sucks anus!)

    Video
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    Fuzzy, your RDL's are not being performed correctly. You are using quad drive and that is not the point of the movement.

    I am also a bit concerned about your knees with the way you are bouncing at the bottom of the squat. I think you would be better served to lighten the load and control the movement better at the bottom. If you take this advice you will thank me later.

    The above said, you are a strong kid! Good work!

    Is that because his stance is too narrow chris?

    Chris, I know about the drive, form just went to **** after the first one. So I made up for it with the good single :d I have no excuse.

    Also, I appreciate your concern about the bounce, but you will be hard pressed to find an olympic weightlifter who doesnt bounce out of squats.

    Ive actually been trying to practice my bouncing technique. Remember, Im getting massages almost daily, especially legs and knees. I am being conditioned to train heavy often, and lift like this on a day to day basis. I am very well looked after and have my recovery and therapy down to the T... well I dont, coach does.

    We can do stupid unhealthy things and get away with it for a very very long time Infact, how many top level Oly guys have major knee issues?

    Thanks for dropping by.

    Those were some nice numbers. I'm going to have to agree with Chris about tightening up at the bottom. You're getting a lot of sway inward and outward with your knees, which to me indicates that you're not staying tight at the bottom. I think you'd be better served, if not just for larger numbers, in focusing on staying tight at the bottom and trying to control the knee sway.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    If you have an Olympic coach working with you I am less concerned. You are correct that Olympic lifters often rebound out of a rock bottom squat. My concern is your age and if you properly conditioned yourself for it.

    Just be careful, I thought I was indestructible when I was young as well.

    Ive taken that onboard. However, compare that squat to my form a month or so ago...

    Are you still 15 y/o, H.S. football coaches would be all over to play ball. Not sure what Olympic lifters do, but the knee movement inward would concern me more than the bounce. Do O lifters wrap the knees?

    You're right dude, your power cleans are impressive. I wish I had been coached when I was young. You are going to be amazing when you get older. The olympic lifting program that you are involved with, do you have any that will qualify for international competition? I really think you could in the future. What's the story there?

    Thanks freakshow! See what i mean about the pull and catch? Much easier for you to see it. Im very proud of my technique, lol./

    Well, i hope Ill be amazing to! Yes, we have 2 commonwealth champions at my gym (one in the 85s, other in the 105+@140kg bw) and both of them have done reasoably well at the olympic level.

    Just gotta remember HB.... its gonna be hell playin catch up with roided Iranis and Russians.

    As for potential international athletes, Im a heavyweight for life, wont go into thr supers so thats th 105s covered, a guy in the 69's, guy in the 77's, and 2 flyweights. Oh, and a massive kid whos gonna make a crazy super. We got a sick youth program going. Were still avery small state and gym though...

    Thanks Chris.

    Is there anyway I could get a cheaper sample order from AtLarge? Right now Im tossing it up between (in order of price) Biotest, Redbak (Aus), AtLarge and Gen-Tec (Aus)

    Coach wants me to decide between you guys and Gen-tec. I honestly cant tell and am probably gonna bsse it on taste. heheh

    Yes, we get taught. I do admit I am not as controlled as I should be, but hey! Im working on it. You can always imrpove form on everything, from curls to snatches.

    What is harder is learning to cheat safely and correctly.

    and thanks man, mucho appreciated You to Twilo

    You think I could go far in the sport.

    I have very little understanding of it...

    Money isnt a concern, Im content that I will probasbly live with my parents for a very long time as I train for the Olympics.

    All the money in the world wouldent be worth one secons on the platform or medal podium

    Dude, if you played HS football in the United States, you would be stronger and more built than like 90% of the players. I graduated from a high school that won the State Championship 2 years in a row and many people weren't not your size. I mean you are already stronger and bigger than most of us at this site, and most of us don't represent the average high school football player. For position that is a tough one. You could probably pick many positions from RB to lineman. I would look into it if I were you - seriously.
