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?

    Bill Kazmaier is the most legendary powerlifter/strongman with world titles in both disciplines. The RAW/Single Ply numbers that he posted were simply amazing. In 1979, Kazmaier won the American powerlifting championship and the IPF world powerlifting championship. He won the IPF world championship again in 1983. In 1981, Kazmaier became the first person to bench 300kg. The 1981 event was the same competition in which he totaled 1,100 kg (2,425 lb). Best lifts= Squat-925Lbs (done without a suit) 661 lbs RAW bench press, and an 887Lbs. deadlift.

    Zydrunas Savickas is another one who is accomplished in both disciplines but is much more focused on strongman. His lifts include a 425.5 kg (936lbs) squat, 285.5 kg (628 lbs) RAW bench press, and 407.5 Kg (896.5 lbs) deadlift along with a 1090 kg (2,398 lbs) total.

    I am 99% sure that Kazmaier did that number with a squat suit, hence his total is not considered raw.

    I am almost positive as well, it was a really basic suit/singlet from 25 years ago - but was something. The numbers that I pulled were from Wikipedia so I quoted them directly.

    There are videos of his lifts online. He was red-lighted for dropping his deadlift too quickly in that meet and so he does about a 5 second negative with his next attempt, basically mocking the judges.

    Back to Stan... does anyone know if he plans to compete in any upcoming bodybuilding contests? Obviously he will not be at the Olympia but perhaps the Night of Champions or the Arnold?

    With how much he seems to enjoy training and with his strength levels I would be curious to see what kind of physique he can build when hypertrophy is his only focus.

    He packed on a ton of muscle since last year. I think he became pro in June or July, so most of his training up to then was probably hypertrophy. He is just a total freak!

    Real humble guy. I'm very impressed with his performance and his respect. I hope Jackson and White look at it the same way Efferding does.

    I love the joking trash talk, just entertaining stuff to go along with incredible lifting. Mocking Ben was hilarious. This guy is great for the sport.
