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?

    Bench Press Raw Competitor guideline for 1st Bench Shirt

    Hi there.
    Ive been involved in weightlifting for almost all my life.
    Ive competed in Powerlifting a while ago (more than 12 year ago), and once again the little bug inside of me is bothering to get into the nationals of Bench Press next december, at seniors (+41 yrs) category.
    Ive attended a couple of tournaments, and EVERYBODY is using bench shirts.
    Believe it or not, I havent even tried one in my 26 years of weightlifting.
    Ive been training WSB for the last couple of months and my 1RM is 365 Lbs (again let me point out, RAW).
    To be honest, I am pretty sure out of what Ive seen, that in my country (Uruguay, a very small country in South America between Brazil & Argentina) I can get a pretty decent top #3 to 5th position in the Senior +41 years, but to be honest, if I compete I want to win.
    Besides that, i want to get OVER 440 Lbs (and be the 20th guy in the country to get that).
    So, its time to get a shirt.
    So, Ive been doing some research but to be honest, I am not sure if I would go for an entry level shirt (like an Inzer Rage or Rage X) or a more expirienced Katana shirt. What fabric? polyester or denim?
    As you might see, I am quite lost here.

    Thanks for your opinions. All the best!
