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?

    Can I ask why you open raw and then put your shirt on afterwards? Beinga bench specialist, wouldn't you want 3 full attempts in the shirt?

    I have been competing this way for several years. I like opening raw because I like making my first attempt and prevents me from bombing. I have never bombed in 14 years competing in bp competition. Sometimes I might have a bad day in my shirt, but I didn't bomb because I made my first attempt. Also, 2 attempts in my shirt is all I really need to do well on the platform.

    If you can do well with two attempts, why not do great with three?

    Any reason why you are purposefully avoiding my question?

    I understand that he wants to lift raw because it's a number he's sure he'll hit. I just don't understand why not lift in the shirt at a number he's sure he can hit. If he only needs two attempts to meet his goals in a meet, how much would he exceed those goals with three attempts in a shirt?
