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?

    It would be an honor to train with you. I cant wait to finish this x-ray program. So I can devote more time to training instead of studying.
    When I die. I want to be frozen. And if they have to freeze me in pieces, so be it. I will wake up stronger than ever, because I will have used that time, to figure out exactly why I died. And what moves I could have used to defend myself better now that I know what hold he had me in.

    23/10/09: At the gym

    Bench press:
    - 95kg x8
    - 100kg x6
    - 110kg x4
    - 115kg x3
    - 120kg x2
    - 125kg x1
    - 110kg x4

    CG Inclines: 95kg x3

    Flies: 25kg x10 2 sets
    Halbert swings: 15kg x12 2 sets

    Hit everything as planned. Should have been 90kg x8 instead of 95kg but I got mistaken.

    Virtron: Didnt go to school for too long but I guess it's pretty hard to balance everything out.

    It's much easier for the peeps from here to post their vids out at Youtube and then post that vid here.

    Did very well there at the garage for both days dude.

    You made those squats look easy. I don't know where you got sluggish from???? I did a set of 325 lbs. once (the most I ever squatted), and it went REALLY slow.....
