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?

    I changed my plans and am now going to be there. Can't wait. Hopefully I can fit myself into my new F-6. If not, I'll have to try somebody elses shirt, perhaps.

    Ryan, I don't know if you've gained any weight since I last saw you, but I have a 48 F6 you could try. It's the smallest shirt I have.

    GREAT time and learned a BUNCH. I know that Rob and Paul are planning another seminar sometime soon and I highly recommend it. These two guys are open back shirt guru's! Having very little experience in an open back shirt, I hit a PR with a brand new shirt-right out of the bag(even though it was a tad bit to big). I really wasn't expecting to get anything to touch in this shirt and I almost touched 495 on my first set. I normally go straight to 600+ with my first shirted set. Thanks to both Rob and Paul. You can't really put a price on knowledge, but for $65 it was a bargain.

    Yup, thank you Rob and Paul (plus the other pure beasts that attended). Lots of good pointers for the shirt and some good tips about training in general. That and the stories made it worth it, for sure. Oh, and a bench PR never hurt anyone either

    I plan on incorporating a lot of your advice into my training and bench setup and hopefully see my bench go up even more. If anyone is considering going to the next seminar they plan, I highly recommend it.

    I definitely learned a ton at the seminar. Well worth it IMO. Now I need to get a shirt that fits me right so I can incorporate much of what I learned, but at least I've got some great assistance movements I can work on in the meantime.
