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?

    Powerlifting meets come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes you compete in a weight class all by yourself. Sometimes at National Levels you could have 20 or more lifters in one class. I have a ton of 1st place trophies....but not many I'm proud of, lol. I'd like to get myself in a big meet vs some other guys around the same strength as me. That way everyone would push each other to make each lift count. All the meets I do are for fun. I have never really had that "competition" thing going on in a meet. This is mostly because of all of the different federations and divisions that meet directors offer(and the fact that I havenot done a National or World meet yet).

    guess im sayin i worked way to hard to not win..
    yea thats weird cuz thats partly how i screwed my self out of a victory with out knowin it..
    i weighed in at 168 cuz i figured there was no way i was gonna make 165, even though i coulda, but oo well, just makes me wanna win more.
    yea ive always had fun no matter what no matter what i placed.
    they are much fun
