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 Celli and Travis Bell Bench for reps

    HAHA! I knew Ryan had it in him. Ryan's been fairly sick the last week or so, still a little beat up from the Raw Unity meet, and he still cranks out 10 reps with 405!!

    Here's the video of both

    JT, why don't you throw up a video of you doing 405 for reps! I bet you could get pretty close!

    The more the merrier. I like seeing other guys have fun with their lifting and sometimes this is a good way to mix it up

    Not that close My max reps with 405 is 6. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LgoeFIPTFxk

    Your 405 x 9-10 reps is an inspiration for me to try to get more reps. I have a bp meet in Feb, March & April. Hopefully, I can try for a new max rep either in May, June or July.

    I just use the reps as a heavy ascessory exercise. So I'll do my normal ME exercise that was planned for the day and then throw this stuff in afterwards. This way I don't feel it distracts from my training, rather it boosts it!

    Great video JT!

    You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You're the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

    Now lets not get confused, this isn't me vs. Ryan. This is Ryan and myself pushing each other. We're on the same team.

    He didn't bounce either, he releases better than I do. Less wasted energy.

    Don't forget either, Ryan is the one with the 534lb full meet bench, my bench only best is 500 LOL.

    Good stuff. That was way easy for both of you. Nice and smooth. I might have to get in on this. I'm good for 7 on a training day, I'm sure I could squeeze out a few more--lol.

    Makes my 4-5 reps look real ****ty. Not to mention that I outweigh both of you by ALOT. Lookin' real storng(both of you). Travis, I used to like to do a burnout after ME bench, but I did it with 315, not 405.
    Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!

    You will Ryan. Heck, you look like you had 12 in the video, you just dialed it back prior to failure.

    Pretty incredible, I wish I could get my form that clean on a 1RM let alone when I am repping. Amazing.

    and don't forget Travis did ME work first! I didn't
    it's all for fun, pushing each other, i wouldn't have tried 10 if it wasn't for Travis's video.
    it is kinda funny how we do think alike, therefor train alike.
