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?

    Ryan Kennelly does it again

    I've heard second hand a couple of times now that Ryan hit a new all time highest bench.....at 308!!! He broke both the old 308 record (985?) and the all time highest bench (1074) with a 1075 bench today at a Pride meet.

    Anyone else hear this?

    Ryan is amazing. Very impressive work

    It's up on Outlaws and PLwatch. He is a monster, I hope he hits 1100 soon.

    That is just plain ridiculous. I know he is a bench specialist, but what are his numbers in the other lifts?

    Just out of curiosity, was he in the Inzer shirt or was this with the new shirt that he said he was designing?

    It's a super duper phenom that has all the Inzer logos blacked out.

    That's incredible. Ryan was under 300 when we saw him in Vegas. He looked good, but I liked the bigger Ryan. He must have bulked up a bit for the meet. Crazy. Good for him. It's definitely motivating

    HOLY ****. Pause. Full lockout. No bull****? Did I miss something?!

    That's like a 200 lb improvement on the WR in last 4 years, right?

    Up there in having a big bench? Hasn't he done a grand too at one point or am I confusing him with someone else?

    oh I gottcha. Yeah he benched 1005 (first 1000lb bench) as well as 1010 which I believe was in 06 or 07.

    Gene had a really serious bout with MRCA so he's working on getting everything together before he hits the platform again. I do know he's planning on comming back though. He's certainly got a tall order to fill
