The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    1-0-7 BARBELL ME Squat/DL 9/1/08

    Here's some vids from today. Reko continues to get better in his suit. We had one of our new guys (Ditka2008) come out to squat. I took it easy on squats to pull big - ended up with a PR!

    Oh yea, any pointers on the squat too would be appreciated (messed up the unrack a bit on the first attempt, that is a given already).

    Good work guys!

    Reko, it looks to me like you need to sit back a bit more and you probably know you need to get down a few more inches for a competition squat (a nice lift in any event).

    Ben- I'd say that pull looks real good. Definitely a big improvement from when you started.

    Reko- just curious why you guys didn't go ghetto-monolift there? If you plan to compete in a monolift, I would do all your gear work in one. I think it definitely changes everything(tightness, stance, depth, etc.) Also, what is the most weight you have squatted and do you ever use knee wraps? I think with a monolift+knee wrap you could have gone deeper and came up easier.

    Chris - Ben said the same thing too (about sitting back). Its my second time in a suit so I am working on depth. I think I got it, or real close anyway on my set before that with 535x2.

    Not sure why we didn't ghetto monlift either. I use wraps, just like I said above its the second time in the suit so I didn't want to go all out with it just yet. In the suit that is what I have done and I think I got 535x2 to depth or close today before that. Without the suit (but with the briefs/wraps/belt) Im good for about mid-upper 500's.

    Ben has given me some good advice and I am sure Will will be able to help out once he gets back and sees me in a suit, but I figure the more people that look at it the more can chime in.

    Not sure why we didn't turn ghetto mono on that one - probably should have.

    It will take time but I think you'll get the feel for it very soon. Strong stuff none the less
