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?

    Shangers - thanks. The meet was today (see post #21 or 22 for results).

    5 hours drives on the east coast are probably a lot more stressful then in the heartland. My 6 1/2 hour drive the day before was pretty easy. I stopped half way at a chain gym and did 12 minutes of very light cardio & went through a nice long stretching routine.

    I ate very clean on the road and drank A LOT of water (I was worried about my weight) which actually helps keep me from retaining water. I came in 5lbs under.

    I'm chilling in the hotel tonight and will head back tomorrow.

    Very true - it was very intense at our meet as well. I am going to remember the vibe & mentality when I train as well. When I was lifting in preparation for the meet - I was VERY aware of every pound I was lifting. Today I was so focused on the calls & technique I didn't even really think about what was on the bar.

    What a blast!

    Boston to Newark in 5ish hours probably equates to about 8-10 hours in the heartland. Traffic on I-95 through there is terrible.
    Roll Tide.
