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?

    New Metal Knee Wrap

    Saw this over on Elite. Very cool concept. Once I saw it I was surprised nobody had thought of it before, but then again I'm not sure how productive it'll be. To me it looks like they are a little longer? Maybe not. Hard to tell when they are so stretched out like that.

    It looks like two different materials. It's the striped knee wraps and the all black. They do look super long.

    Yeah I think it's two types of knee wraps sewn together, one's much stiffer and the other a little more flexible.

    I am guessing the first one is much stiffer? What advantage would that give someone?

    Also that roller looks awesome, i have never seen that.

    They are there to lift more weight.

    They probably help with knee health as well.

    Huh. That looks real cool. I like the triple-line wraps. They feel like stiff little canvas suits for your knees. I guess adding a section of stretchy material, would make it like your knees are wearing a little canvas suit with a pair of strechy poly briefs underneath.

    I might give these a stab. I hope they don't cost like $70 bucks or something insane like that.

    Pretty interesting. From the revolutions it looks like they are legal length. Man wrap rollers sure save your wrists and forearms. I love how tha Metal Team digs AC/DC so much.
