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?

    bumper plate question

    If you have bumper plates on a bar, and you're using it for the olympic lifts, is it okay to have regular iron weights too, as long as they are a smaller diameter, or is there something wrong with that?
    The Iron never lies to you. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go, but 200 pounds is always 200 pounds - a warm-up.

    I would only use plates smaller than the bumpers (35's, 25's, 10's...etc)

    The only thing I've ever heard is that by adding iron plates after bumper plates is that there is less shock absorption and the bar can take a bigger hit. I'm sure that as long as some of it is absorbed, it's better than nothing but if I could, I'd use all bumper plates but if that's not possible, I think it will still work but you might the bar might not last as long.
