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?

    What I'm saying is, carrying huge globs of fat around is more a liability in something like olympic lifting than it is in powerlifting because you are going to lose your leverages faster, so that is one reason for less of a strength-size correlation than with powerlifting.

    The reason I want to focus on powerlifting here is because olympic lifting has many more components to it than pure strength, so it's kind of fallacious to pull out some olympic lifter and go "here, strength doesn't equal size!" when there are many, many factors going into how good of an olympic lifter someone is that have very little to do with strength.
