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?

    King Kong I'm gonna catch you NEXT WEEK!!!

    Ok here is my feeble attempt at 505 on inclines. Now mind you guys I've only been doing for 3 weeks after Rob recommended them to me. The first vid is 2 reps the first rep is really really shaky kind of dipped it and the spotters tapped me back in place. The 2nd rep goes up strong the 3rd rep well it did not happen.

    And the 2nd video is 505 again but only for a strong single, was looking for a double but it did not happen. We'll smoke this next week. Inclines are a bitch and I have never really focused on them like this. Totally different feeling in the stabilizers then a regular flat bench.

    I'm on my way to 600 pounds BABY!!!! Give me a few months to figure these out!!!!

    I think you're being smart about it Wolf. You really have to pick your poison when it comes to losing as much weight as you want to. I think that guys who try to bench too heavy while losing that much weight would set up for injury.

    although being sponsored by Inzer, you certainly could re-order shirts as needed.....At the end of the day though its all what goals you personally set for yourself. Last fall all I did was raw stuff too. It was fun for awhile

    I have seen you bench. You should be worried all the time.

    When You make 275 I will be back down to 220 or maybe upto SHW

    Working the incline can help his bench via the fact it is a conjugate variety movement working basically the same muscles.

    I know that its a good assitance exercise. Me and Wolfy have a past. If we don't give each other a hard time we think one of us is mad at the other.

    Lol, I know you give him crap, but I thought maybe you didn't like inclines or something.

    You know what would be cool, to have all of the big benchers on this site have an online incline competition of sorts.

    hahaha Rob you're a funny guy


    Since I'm quite a ways out from my next meet, I'd probably be up for that. I probably wouldn't train for it, just up and do it as my ME movement for the day. I like raw stuff because it really doesn't matter a whole lot to me. Its fun every now and then to see where I'm at in my raw strength, although I'll get blown out of the water by several guys on here hahaha.

    Maybe you could pick an exercise once a month or so, every six weeks, have the contest, and the winner gets a free ALN t shirt or something??? You know up the ante a little bit.
