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?

    That would be awesome BC. Get your ass over here!! That's not even 15 minutes drive from where I live!
    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 job on the pr. What shitty luck in Atlanta. They overcome all the dumb turn overs and then Vick gets knocked out by Herremans. Can't belive Maclin dropped that pass after the night he was having. They also need to put Ronnie Brown in more short yardage situations so it's not so obvious that he is getting it when he does come in. Trent Cole had a ridiculous game though.

    Thanks Nick. You hit everything on the head. But good news is they fianally wised up this week and shifted Matthews to the weakside and put Cheney in the middle. Temp fix but better then it was.

    You cant be stopped at the minute BC. Tremendous few weeks in the shert.

    The most recent Fire/Police comp was in NY, wasnt it? We had a guy in training with us one night who was doing it. Brian Coombes. ~460 raw bencher. Not sure how he got on yet.

    You'll nail 6 bro, keep working at it like you have been and it's yours. I'm planning on competing at the Texas Police Olympics either next year or the year after, should be a lot of fun. Afterwards we'll see from there.

    645x1
    705x0 dropped to quick, form went to crap
    705 x1
    Reverse light bands
    735x1
    775x0x2 first form issue, second just couldnt muscle it
