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?

    Finally benched 500lbs in a single ply Rage X at the Iron Asylum meet April 11th. Only had the shirt for 3 weeks prior to the meet. 500 was really smooth, probably had a realistic 20-25lbs more in me that day, didn't realize it would go that well. Should of opened higher and hit the 500 on my 2nd attempt.
    Current stats / Goals July '09
    BW 206lbs (compete at 198)
    Contest bench: 500 / 540
    Contest Deadlift: 550 /600
    Gym squat: 500 / 575
    I currently only compete in Bench, DL. Full meets starting @Oct'09

    I havent really posted in here for some reason but, some reason accomplishments over the past month are:

    Reverse light band DL from 5'6": 545x1 smooth...failed around knee level with 565. first time doing these.

    Reverse mini monster bench" " : worked up to 365 failed with 385 mid way. also a first for me.

    4 board bench press: 350x1 (very long arms lol) never maxed on boards before.

    and the one im most proud of: a 75lb squat pr. Up until last thursday my best squat was a very sketchy 350. well, last thursday i squatted 425 after i had done many singles. very happy with that. now, i want 5 plates!
