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?

    for lifting buffalo

    On IronMind's site I see the cambered bar that they call a buffalo bar. How has this worked for anyone who has tried it out?

    I use a regular bar, sometimes it bothers my neck or back, during squats. I am planning to use a trap bar, but then I noticed this buffalo bar.

    Well, I thought it seemed like a good idea, the trap bar, since I do not have a power rack, and I train at home. There is only me in the house. What I need to do is get a power rack, but that costs something. Actually, I am thinking to build one out of timbers.

    For back squats, the idea of a cambered bar sounds good. I've just wondered how anyone else liked one of them.

    I've used one numerous times. I like it alot, it's really forgiving on your shoulders expecially if you squat low bar.

    I love the bar for this fact. If your tight in the shoulders(which most of us are) then its the bar for you.
