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?

    Got a 685 free squat sans suit (but with briefs and all that). Video will be posted in the log sometime this week or weekend as I (still) don't have internet yet.
    Also hit 315x7 on bench which isn't a 1RM obviously but was a PR for that weight.

    I guess this is a PR, because I have never really done sumo deadlifts. Especially doing them for reps. But I did 405 for 2 sets of 10 reps

    515 squat.

    WOW what a difference a belt makes. My previous PR (505 2-3 in. high) felt like nothing with my Inzer Forever 13mm belt. Went to 515 deep and still had some left in the tank. This is awesome lol

    yea, im pretty pumped about that.
    I always seem to hit PRs on bench when i back off the singles and hit more reps as i have been lately, and then hitting floor presses harder.

    coincidence? I think not...

    Today I pulled a 515lb stiff leg deadlift with a hook grip off of a 4" platform, and did a 465lb zercher squat out of chains and off a 13" box with a cambered bar.

    Good job, guys.

    I had a 675 deadlift today. It was ugly and the lockout was a bit shaky, but I got it.

    I froze my enemies in carbonite.

    Also, I pulled a 225 lbs deadlift, eight weeks after doing them for the first time. Only 13 years after my football coach said deadlifts would blow my knees out of my ass. Jerk.

    Oh well, I still have Princess Leia in a metal bikini.
