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?

    Training with lance karabel on friday

    So while looking for gyms in hyde park on powerlifting watch, I found "Lance's gym" on 35th street, a short 20 minute drive north. To my surprise there's a heavy powerlifting gym right in my back yard! I shot the guy an email on monday and I think I'm coming up this friday to do some deadlift training with him and his crew. Exciting! He also said he had for sure a (I think single ply) bench shirt that would fit me as well as maybe even a squat suit that I could either buy cheap off someone or get for free or something.

    So have any of you guys heard of him/met him? is he a nice guy? I checked out his stats online and he's definitely legit. O__O
    Stats: 11/15/07-First-meet--2nd Meet----3rd meet
    Weight: 185-----187---------198---------198
    Max Bench: 255---220-----------280------300
    Max Squat: 405----395----------440------460
    Max Dead:475-----485----------551------570
    CHINUPS - Bodyweight + 135, x1, dead hang. Still working on the one arm chinup.
