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?

    Need new knee wraps..

    I've misplaced my knee wraps and am looking to get some more...any suggestions?

    1) I'd like to support APT
    2)Previous wraps were Titan THP's - yes, I liked them
    3)Current squat PR is 290 off box w/no wraps
    4) looking to hit 350'ish this year Raw.
    5) I like them cranked, tear jerking style...but "soft" material...with rebound behind the knee...

    Thanks! Vikki

    Black Reapers from APT - very solid wraps.

    I have a pair of the APT's that are red with black stripes. They fit the description you gave. I'm blanking on the actual name. Sorry.

    I have had success with the Black Mambas. Great spring without jacking them too much.

    Actually the new Strangulator/Convict Hybrids are brutally strong but the material is very comfortable. I'd give them a try. They're like a 1.5 ply ZRV

    I use the convict knee wraps and love them. Good pop out of the hole and they stay tight through out the entire lift.

    I'll add another vote for the black reapers as well, based on your description.

    Thanks for the replies guys...I'm going to go with the Black Reapers based on consensus and of course the youngin (Lones-who's never steered me wrong yet...lol)

    p.s. I have the convict wristwraps and yeah...I don't think I want that material wrapped around my knees yet....

    convict pros or strangulators by APT are GOLDEN! they have the new 2x and 3x wraps if you need some super extra support but most people fair well with the first two mentioned. I love mine for sure!
