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?

    1st meet videos and report

    had my first meet today. it was the SPF TN state powerlifting meet. weighed in at 325 (which is pretty light for me nowadays.)i did single ply squat only. the first 2 videos are pretty fuzzy, but the last one is okay looking. i opened with 425...got 2 red lights. some of my partners told me to come up, so i came up. turns out i was an inch from parallel. second attempt was 475, smoke show. last attempt was 500. i came pretty close to hitting depth on this. the only reason i didn't hit depth is because i got a really tight knee wrap job from a guy that used to train at westside. it suprised me how much harder that made it to hit depth. i did my first 2 attempt without them. i think if i didn't use them i would have hit it. i was down in the hole for awhile and had to exhale because i was about to pass out. as you can see, i didn't have any trouble getting it up after that. no help from spotters. i got first place in the teenage SHW's, because i was the only one, haha. overall, i got one good lift in. did a pretty good job of keeping my back straight and staying tight. i think with some more hip work and adding my viking briefs in the mix i'll have a respectable squat. i'm going to do a WABDL full meet before i turn 20 in july. saw some great lifts, and had a great time. i'm wearing my atlarge shirt, but you can't really tell. thanks for all your support and coaching guys. i'll only go up from here.

    You should have opened way heavier and with knee wraps. Other than that... Nice work!

    475-500 could have been an opener by the looks of things.

    i think your right. i've only trained in wraps a few times, and the few times i did it was a real bad rap, i did them myself. its okay though, i'll kill it in july.

    ps are you happy i went single ply? hahaha

    Fair enough... I mastered to the wraps before I ever went on to suits...

    And yes, I am very happy you lifted single ply!

    You looked really strong on that 475. Looks like you just need to practice with your gear more so there are no surprises. Just out of curiosity, how much more do you squat with suit+wraps than raw?

    thanks guys. those were pretty easy numbers for me. last time i squatted raw i think i hit 435. that was with a real s****y knee wrap job. the heaviest i've gone in my suit in awhile was a 675 reverse monster mini box squat off a 14 in box. i did it 3 times, but only 1 was to depth.
