The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Well, to say I kept the knees out and the weight off my toes would be a complete lie lol. Makes a normal bar seem much easier though.

    No, I believe it was a deadlift. XD

    Ben, what sort of excercises do you guys cycle for your ME lower body days? From your journal/vids it looks like you do a lot of suit work or direct deadlifting/squatting.

    Nice lifting fellas.

    Reko- that squat was grimey! That would have sent me face first into the wall, lol. What are you putting up with a straight bar now? 750+?

    Lol, I wish! I hit 615 in a free squat a couple weeks ago in briefs/wraps/belt. The big thing for me right now is working with a low bar placement. I've been a high bar squatter (even in wide stance PL squats) so once I can get comfortable with the heavier weights on a low bar and then get in the suit it'll be time to rock and roll!

My dad is an attorney and i fought it as long and hard as i could... but it just comes naturally i guess. Ive worked at his office for about 5 years now, i do all the leg work and he gets the fat paycheck... i want mine! haha

    Be careful on what area you want to practice and what you don’t. The first job you take may determine it without you being a willing participant. If the firm gives you a particular case (and you can't just say "no") and then you do a decent job, they'll send you similar ones to work on until you're the guy who does that type of work. Next thing you know, you’ve done contract law for 5 years and want to find a different job but all your experience is in a subject which you hate.
    I do civil litigation primarily but have drifted a little into federal criminal defense. The criminal stuff sucks and I can't stand the clients. (Case in point to my above statement) I am a better writer than the other attorneys in the firm, so I end up doing the complex motions and appeals. I'm best at legal arguments and more scholarly stuff whereas a lot of my co-workers aren't as good but they are better in the courtroom in front of juries (for trials). I am better arguing legal theories in front of judges and appellate panels. Since a lot of the federal criminal stuff we do is complex and requires a lot of motion practice, bam - being the good legal argument guy, I end up doing the pre-trial motion practice and appeals in some of the criminal cases.
    PM me if you got anymore questions or whatever. Another one of us KC guys is an attorney as well, Brad08.

    Sam I must admit, its funny to think of you as a judge or even a lawyer. Not an insult at all, its just I've never seen you outside of powerlifting LOL but I'm sure you'll be pretty good at whatever you end up doing
