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?

    Carryover is anywhere from 35-100lbs
    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.

    Is this what you learned so far from Team ST?


    It is a wide range that would boggle the mind of those who aren't powerlifters or follow powerlifting closely. There are plenty of benchers out there getting 200 to 300+ from their shirts. My personal best carryover is ~125 lbs or so, but I suck at benching. Some people get 20 to 30 lbs. It all depends on the shirt, how loose/tight it is, how the lifter trains, etc.

    Unless the competition is a raw only comp, then yes they are legal. Each federation has their own guidlines as far as plys, thickness, closed-back/open-back, etc.


    Just like any other market, they have cheap ones and expensive ones.

    you could be like me who gets -15lbs carry over, as i suck at shirted benching.
    it takes some work learning how to use one and specific training.
    if it was as easy as just throwing it on and doing it id be at a 480lb bench.
    but those who do know how to use it, it can help allot.
