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?

    Official PR Thread

    Other boards I frequent keep track of members PR's. Why can't the fine men and women here at /WBB/ have the same?

    I'll start

    Parallel Box Squat - 750+10 chains x 2

    We have a wall of fame. Everybody got all excited about it then it died like a week later.

    I'll go ahead and make it a stickie and we'll see how it goes. Try and just keep it to the PR's though. Discussion of PRs should probably be kept to the board so as to not clutter up the thread.

    I know about the wall of fame - this might be a little easier as you don't necessarily have to have video. Eh, either way we'll see.
