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?

    Deadlift training video 7/22/08

    I think I look better in the Fusion suit, but I tried the Metal this week. It was a PR double for conventional, but I think I should be able to triple it.

    You're looking bigger man. What's your weight up to?

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    When I train at night right now I am ~170-171. I'd say 168-169 in the morning.

    Chris - do you find that the fusion allows you to get to the bar easier?

    I have a Metal King Pro Deadlifter and I barely use it because I feel like my head is going to explode trying to get down to the bar and it forces me into a narrow stance. I know a lot of guys have had success with the Inzer Max DL so wondering if the fusion is similar?

    Need to start pulling equipped more though, I know it will give me an extra 35-50 lbs once I get used to it.

    Yes, I feel much more comfortable setting up in the Fusion. I think my fusion is a bit looser than the Metal though, so I'm not sure how it would be if it was gangsta tight.

    I would love to be one of those guys who can pull 90-100 lbs more in a suit. I have been trying a bunch of different setups and stances, but have not figured it out yet.

    My best meet lifts were done sumo. My best conventional pull in a meet is only 500. My meet PR sumo is 540. I love to train both styles though.
