The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Mike Wolfe's "Children's Charity, Christmas Classic Bench meet"

    Hey Guys,

    Just wanting to let everyone know the meet is coming up again. It will be held here in Celina Ohio on December 1st 2007. Last year we raised over $600 cash and 2 van loads of toys to be given to the Charity. My goals for this year is break the $1000 mark and get a BUNCH more toys.

    This is for a really great cause and the money donations and toys are evenly distributed throughout the county to needy children and families to help them during the Christmas Holidays. Alot of us took it for granted that when we came downstairs on Christmas morning there would be presents under the Christmas tree. Well imagine a little kid coming downstairs and there being none We can totally help change this for some unfortunate kids.

    Even if you cannot make it and are willing to make a small donation every bit counts. I will except any amount cash or check you can personally mail it to me at:

    Mike Wolfe
    310 West Market St
    Celina Ohio, 45822

    Cool I loved having you guys up last yr. Got my first entry in today, I was totally surprised but the guy was there last yr and he told me he had a GREAT time and could not wait to get back down here this yr. Last yr they got in late Friday night and had drove through a Blizzard from Milwaukee Wisconsin to Chicago to come down here. Hope they dont have to do that again this yr.

    Just to let everyone know an update on the meet so far as sponsors for the meet we have:

    AtLarge Nutrition
    Westside Barbell
    Diesel Test Supplements
    House of Pain Ironwear
    Skulptures by Seeker

    These are the ones that I have already heard back from there is also a few other companies that are involved in the sport that I am waiting to hear back from as well. I have also approached a few local companies about helping donate a few odds and ends to help better the events itself. This list will grow in the next few weeks and I look forward to putting on a great meet.

    Hey guys here is an update on the meet ~

    We should have well into the 30's got a lot of people planning on showing up the day of. Dont really like that idea but hey I'll take them however I can.

    I got a lot of really good **** to give away and making my music playlist today. Anything you guys would like to hear? Gonna be a mix of Heavy Metal, Rock and some Rap. We will be rocking the place that is for sure.

    We will be benching on a very very nice Forza bench with a good Texas Power Bar.

    There will be plenty of space for the lifters and plenty of seating for lifters and spectators. We will have water and Gatorade on hand for the lifters. Plus we will have a snack bar set up with Water, Soda, Hot Dogs, Sloppy Joes, chips and cookies.

    The best lifter in the Mens Open will be decided Formula using the Wilks Formula and it will also be used to determine 1st - 3rd place in the masters, womens, and teens.

    We are ready to have a good time and there will be plenty of Westside guys on hand to pick there brains. All of the Westside guys lifitng will be lifting Raw and only a handful are actually competing.

    I myself am still up in the air about taking a lift it will be a last minute decision on my part. But here is the list of guys coming in from Westside ~

    Mike Wolfe ~ possible guest lift

    George Halbert ~ guest lift

    Matt Wenning ~ hanging out helping load and spot

    Jason Fry ~ guest lift

    Marlin Centers ~ competing Raw

    Tony Ramos ~ hanging out

    John Martinez ~ judging

    Bull Blanton ~ competing Raw

    Scott Vickery ~ competing Raw

    Drex Welch ~ Hanging out

    Nick Winters ~ Guest lift

    Awesome Mike.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.
