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?

    295x1 Paused Bench

    Just seein what I can do with a long pause. No spotter so I didn't want to go too heavy but I think I could hit 300+ for a pause easy in a meet. Critique away...

    Solid rep CP.
    Who needs spotters!
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Nice bench. You look like you lose a little bit of tightness on the pause. If you get that sorted out, I think 3pps is right around the corner.

    Thanks man. You are right, I accidentally took a breath while the weight was on my chest and it made the lift a lot harder then it should have been. I'm very close to putting up 320 on a touch n go but yea a paused 315 would be nice.

    Nice job man. Yeah, just try and get your air in and hold it throughout the lift and not lose tightness.

    it looks like your grip could come out a bit, and yeah, the tightness at the bottom of the rep thing.

    good benching though!

    That really depends on the person, use the grip that will let you move the most weight while keeping your pecs/shoulders healthy. My raw bench grip is thumbs from smooth.

    I used to live in Bourbonnais but now I am in the very corner of NW indiana, which is still actually a suburb of Chicago. About a 45 minute drive to the middle of the city.
