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?

    Is it seam or material?

    Brian have you got the ass of a 308 lifter or something?
    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

    You would think so the way these suits are blowing out. Its the material running along the seam, both plys. So its not fixable.


    Just got off the phone with the "knowledgeable" Inzer customer service. They said to send it back again and would replace it if need be. That does me a lot of good. Stick the suit in your brownhole...

    Damn B, that sucks...sorry to hear about the BS issues your having with the suit. I haven't heard much about Ginnys canvas suits, but she does do a kick ass job on her alterations. I know it's too close to try a new suit, but have you thought about getting a Metal Jack or Ace suit? Or maybe even going raw? Good luck bro, I hope everything works out for you!!!

    Yeah it blows but ill make due. We're going to ghetto rig it with some duct tape and just go with it. If it tears too much on warmups, then ill throw my Boss suit on. Ill send it back after the meet. Who knows, maybe the third time's a charm...

    4/16 Bench opener

    135x8
    225x3
    315x1
    365x1 2brd
    405x1 3brd
    Shirt
    475x1 3brd
    495x1 2brd
    525x1 1brd
    565x0 (couldnt touch)
    565x1 opener
    605x1 2brd (second attempt)

    Thats it. All heavy training is done. I need to take all the shirt out to hit my opener. The first attempt I was an inch off my chest forever and lost my breath. A few adjustments and smooth sailing. My Openers will be 745/565/525. BW 217.
    A big congrats to Tone who decided to enter this meet bench only and threw his shirt on tonight and hit an easy 725 like it had springs on it. Its going to be fun watching him crush it.

    Youve worked so hard this whole cycle Brian. Lets see you put up the total you deserve.

    You could get a patch sewn into the seat of the canvas on the inside. That will give a bit of integrity. Duct tape does not sound like a good idea at all. Can you not get your hands on an old pair of briefs and cut a patch out of them? An upholsterer should have heavy duty equipment to sew it in.

    My training partner blew a hole in the sleeve of his SDP during warmups on saturday. He took his opener in his hands, lowered it an inch and the whole thing exploded from one end to the other. I would hate to think of a similar thing happeneing at the bottom of a squat. Once it goes a little, its pretty much set to burst the whole way.

    Im going to see about that. The seam is in tact, its the material itself running along the seam thats torn.
    I guess a patch inside might get me through it.

    Nice accessory day and good job on that bench opener, especially after missing it the first time. How'd the 605 feel off the 2brd?

    Thanks Bri. 605 felt a little on the heavy side this time, but im not sweating it. Meet day usually renders better results. 2 inches shy off the chest last time I took it, so im pretty confident ill get it.
