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?

    Forza benches and platforms (power rack, too if they make them). EliteFTS stuff is all good. Ivanko, Leoko, or Uesaka bars and bumper plates for Oly lifting. Okie or Forza barbells for powerlifting (including a Texas bar for squat). York or Iron Grip dumbells up to 150 lbs or more. Maybe a thickbar (Cranes might make them, otherwise Black Iron makes good ones).

    That should cover all the important stuff.

    BP 430x1 (shirted), 320x1 (raw)

    If you are serious, talk to Scott Tully at and he'll quote you a price on pretty much anything you'd need. Good luck!

    Nice to see a plan for being only 18.
    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.
