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?

    Metal V-Type Squatter

    I just purchased the IPF Metal squat suit and am going to give it a shot tommorrow for my leg day. I have been squatting in a pretty loose Inzer Hardcore that I can get on in about a minute by myself. I've been debating about getting the Metal for awhile but decided to give it a go after reading so many good things about it. I hope to video some upcomming sessions in the video section to get input on my form/technique. Any advice with this suit would be appreciated.

    That's the one Im using too. Since it was my first suit I had trouble figuring out but now Im really getting a lot of pop out of the hole. The only advice I can give you is to not to let it push you forward and sit back as much as you can. Have fun man!

    Thanks. I had a rough time trying to get it on. I got the legs up about halfway before switching to an old Inzer suit to just get my workout in. My main difficulty has been leaning foward from the bottom. I am definetely going to have to watch that.

    Im in no way a great squatter so take it for what it is but I noticed doing a lot of abs, obliques and low back work allows me to really stay upright with my chest out. The key is to really push the abs and obliques out before unracking the weight. I look pregnant doing this stuff.
