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?

    Bench PR, 5 plates plus 2 sets of medium chain.

    Hi everyone,

    Got a good PR of 220kg/485lbs + 20kg/45lbs chain to a 1 board (shirted).
    Must add I did not quite touch the board, was pretty close.
    Had 5 plates + chain in my head, missed 215 kg due to not flaring at the top then put 220 kg (5 plates) on and made it!!
    Weight is still 210lbs.

    Great to hit a PR now that my elbow is getting better!

    That is a beast of a PR.

    What was your PR before this?

    Thank you, before my best was 207.5/457lbs plus the chains so it was close to a 30lb PR in 12 weeks.
    To be clear I did not quite touch the board so that prob made it easier.
