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?

    Barbell Rows, Incline presses and Hack Squats..................these are easily my favorites. A good set of Nosebreakers doesn't suck either.

    ??? Squats and deadlifts aren't lifts, they're assistance exercises for your bench!

    It used to be bench, then bench a close second, and then finally bench.

    Once I got into powerlifting, I fell in love with the deadlift. I would say my order now goes deadlift, squat, and then bench last (b/c it now sucks and I keep straining my pecs).

    I've always loved squatting, and it's always been my best lift. Benching is a very close 2nd though. It's my worst lift, but heavy bench day (Friday) is the best day of the week for me.

    I'd have to say a tie between bench and squat, which is ironic since deadlifting is probably my best lift at the moment.

    I secretly love the bench press but I get annoyed by everyone who does not lift asking me how much I bench that I tell people I don't bench press. If someone who doesn't lift for once asks me what I squat or deadlift and not what I bench I think I would keel over in disbelief.

    Deadlifts got my vote.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Deadlifting is awesome - especially when you have long legs, short torso and long arms.

    But squat and bench are the ones that I really need to bring up. Bench especially.
    Currently: 6'3", 220#, 295/235/430

    Goals (for now): 230#, 355/260/445

    Some time in the distant future: 275#, 750/500/750

    Deadlift. Its the lift that most people can relate to as well, you can either pick it up or you can't.

    Deadlifts. My entire build allows me to excel in this lift....the greatest test of pure strength?

    My benches are good too.

    Squats are my weakest at the moment. MY ROM is crap and I do 5xpower/3xoly/3xfront followed by shoulder work. It kills and a dread each session. But squats are the king.
