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?

    1 set monsters 2 sets mini's raw bench.

    I have wanted to give this a try for a while now, the tension was huge.

    I worked up to 150 bar weight, missed it first time at 2 1/2 board height then got it the second-took about 6 seconds to lock it out ha ha.

    Hope some of you give it a try and let me know what you get.

    I am actually gonna be doing something like this soon. I have to change up some things on my lockout work to get it moving again. I am thinking huge band tension stuff off 4-5 brds....something like 400# tension and low bar weight like that...as well as moving some grips around to change it up..

    Nice work Nick!

    I think the band tension was somewhere around 260, it came down super fast and was hard to touch in the right spot but it was heaps of fun and cool to get out of the shirt.
