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?

    blowouts

    I just ordered a 1ply rage x bench shirt like 3 weeks ago. Just got it dialed in and able to touch my chest. while doing a working set with 650 the sleeve blew right out on the seem! I just sent it back to inzer. Do they replace or fix it? Does anyone know? I only have 3 weeks left till nationals so I have to figure something out. They told me there is a warranty but other than that they have given me no answers.

    After a week, give them another call and explain that you have a big national meet coming up.

    Also, you might want to keep a back up shirt for emergencies.

    my advice man, plan on using your back up shirt. Don't try and force a new shirt right now. that way you just have peace of mind and know you'll get a bench in

    You might try washing the older shirt. I wash mine on cold - cold cycle with no detergent in there. Keeps it nice and fresh. I wouldn't recommend throwing it in the dryer haha that sucker will shrink too much but hang it out on a line to air dry.

    Also, after you get your first attempt in. If you feel really confident in the shirt, pull the sleeves down a little and get the collar down as well.

    But as for the new shirt, I think it'd be a mistake to try and break in a new one this close to the meet

    just roll with what you've got.. no way any new shirt will be ready in that amount of time. I don't even use shirts and know that even if it's the same kinda shirt you WERE using..it'll be a different shirt than what you were used to in 3 weeks when it comes showtime. Just because it wasn't broken in like the other one.
