The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    405 lb. Standing Overhead Press

    Here are my lifts from today's APA meet here in CT. I weighed 302. I was very happy with my performance because I have quite a cold. Also, there were only five of us competing in this event so I completed all three lifts in about a ten minute time span.

    A special thanks to Rhodes and Drew for helping me out today. I can be quite a diva. I also want to thank Chris and Daniel. I feel confident the supplements from AtLargeNutrtion are helping me a great deal. I am hitting pr's at 39.

    Are you wearing some kind of bench shirt in this video? It says Inzer on it, the only reason I ask.

    We actually call them t-shirts around here. You can buy them on Inzer's site. I'd prefer you to buy EliteFTS, but that's cool.

    Cenzo,

    Awesome work today. I've been around you for 4 years, now. That was as impressive as your 600 unequipped. I'm looking forward to your run in Feb. It'll be a great ride. Talk to you soon, bro. Rest up! Go Cowboys!

    Wow

    Vinny,
    That was just awesome. Strict as can be and strong! Congrats.
    And I know what you mean about Atlarge supplements, I wouldn't be hitting the numbers I'm hitting without them.

    Um do you realize that what I just finally deadlifted on Friday for the first time ever, you are pressing over your head? You, my friend, are a beast.

    doesn't even seem possible to me lol. I feel like there should just be a line in my signature that says "nice pressing vincent", since i say it so often.

    awesome Vinny that is just some massive overhead strength. The way you handled that I would say you would be 475+ on the Push Press or maybe even close to 500lbs which is super elite levels of strength.
