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?

    Ben White Responds to Stan Efferding!!

    Last night on Heavy Muscle Radio they hosted Stan where he talked about how he feels it's garbage that they aren't allowing him to compete for the title of the Worlds Strongest Bodybuilder given that Stan is a pro bodybuilder and holds the highest total out of all three of them.

    Ben White called Dave Palumbo right after the show ranting and raving about Stan Efferding and his challenge.

    Personally I wasn't real impressed with Ben, all he does is kinda joke about the whole thing non stop. While I did laugh, I think it'll be real interesting to see how this turns out.

    There's a reason Super Training is having a raw meet the weekend BEFORE the Ben White vs. Johnny Jackson showdown...

    Ben is talking way too much crap. I'll think Stan would stomp him.

    This. All he does is try to discredit Stan's total by saying it was in the master's division, that he wears bandages on his knees, and that he can't be a rhino because he doesn't have a horn...

    Guy kind of seems like a prick. He talked a lot of trash, and Stan's video was pretty much all fact.

    Either way, be cool to see them go head to head

    Its funny how every time they point out that stan has the records ( at actual meets ) ben just avoids answering to that and makes a joke about the whole thing.
    Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.

    Ben White comes off as quite ignorant about powerlifting. He is a great bencher, but that is about it. At his best I might even give him the raw bench nod over Stan, but Stan SMOKES him on the squat and dead. Heck, I bet I could pull more than Ben.
