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?

    2 PR's this week, broke 400lbs on deadlifts with a PR of 405lbs, and bench PR today of 265lbs. Small to lots of the numbers in here, but big to me , plus I started powerlifting in March, and have made steady progress, so I'm stoked!

    Thanks Brian. One reason for the huge jump is last year I didn't have a squat suit. This year I do. Also I broke through a huge barrier with my deadlift which was the reason for the 50lbs pr. Sat at the 500 mark for nearly a year with that.

    I still pull raw. Plan on figuring out a suit and learning to pull geared over the winter.

    550# Box squat. Previous best would be 525lbs regular squat. Not sure how they correspond exactly.

    DB Bench PR - 120 x 10 (I know this is strange to track, but I've been going after this for a while. One of those strange personal records that has eluded me for a few years.)
    Current Lifts (All RAW):
    Bodyweight: 205

    Deadlift: 480 x 1
    Squat: 375 x 1
    Bench: 335 x 1
