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?

    Apex isn't certified for USAPL

    Seems more political than anything else, but it's not allowed so you're stuck there too.

    damn, I misread a quote on powerliftingwatch... I thought it said that the USAPL and WABDL were the only ones allowing it.....****.

    Well, i guess its almost an easy choice....Katana or RageX. What I really want is more pop out of the bottom....guess we all do though.

    Just pick a shirt already. It's not going to do the lifting for you.


    Supplements I currently take: Nitrean , BCAA , Creatine 500 , Multi-Plus , Fish Oil

    Do you go to the bar and chase women like most college kids do? Your not gonna get any simpathy here.

    If you are going to compete in single ply then I would say the Katana's results speak for themselves. But if your going Multi ply I would say the Metal Ace.

    Super katana is good if you can open at 500+. Any less and you won't touch with one that fits right.

    Come on Rob. Cut the guy some slack. If I had a choice between a bench shirt and gettin' drunk & laid, I'd still be liftin' RAW!!! But, since I'm fat & 50, I don't get no booty = I got huge PILE of bench shirts. Just the fact that he's willin' to spend $150 party money on a shirt is admirable.

    Actually, I have an 18month old son and a Fiancee that comes first, plus rent, plus im a full time student and play football for my university.......ect ect.

    So when I get the time/cash to spend on powerlifting, I would like to make sure im getting the right equipment, ya know? Not asking for sympathy, just not looking for smart ass generalized comments either.

    Ummm... I've hit a 1.5 board 525lbs in my older rageX thats in question. So I assume with a good shirt, 500 would be attainable.

    Don't be so thinned skinned JR! Like I recomended above if you are lifting single ply Katana is probably the best out there. Multy ply Metal Ace. Both shirts will last and you will get your money's wotrth.

    If you hit a 525 to a 1 1/2 brd no reason why you cant hit atleast thatt much full range. The lower you bring the bar the more you will get out of the shirt!
