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?

    Anyone use these suits, if so how are they? I was thinking of ordering the Black Widow canvas suit from her(I think the colors look cool)

    As Rich said I would get another leviathan. The Ginny suits are great suits but they have zero give. I nearly bought one for myself but I got a leviathan instead for a deal. Imagine your leviathan without the poly on the sides. Greg Damminga had one and said it was allot of suit, he is the resident gear whore over at outlaws he can give you a run down on it over there. I hvae used a metal pro, Franttz excalibur suit, Metal Ace, and the Leviathan. The Levithan and Ace are 2 hard to beat suits.

    If you are looking for a canvas suit I can't recommend Overkill's hybrid suit enough....... whereas Inzer runs poly down the sides to let the suit give Overkill uses a different (and less bulky than a frantz or Ginny) pattern to attach the front and the back of the suits and the top of the suit is Poly so you can wear it tight and still hit depth........ just my $0.02

    these pics are from an early prototype I wore at AWPC worlds this year..... my new Overkill suit has heavier canvas and a wider hip angle but looks the same except for the big overkill logo on the front of the new one.....


    and don't dye your white canvas, use a permanent marker or spray paint... I first asked Rudy for a suit after I ruined my frantz canvas trying to dye it.....

    I was forwarded an email this morning saying that Overkill stuff is 10% off until January 11th, FWIW.

    The Ginnys are nice if wear your briefs just hella tight. Then you can tune the depth a bit with the suit straps. If not, the Ginny locks up at the bottom and it's easy to pitch forward. Leviathon has some give, but still you need to be a slower, like-to-box-squat kind of squatter. I have an Overkill poly coming back soon from a size adjustment, it's WAY stouter than a T-REX, really looking forward to giving it a spin.
