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?

    Meet results: 2300@242

    Squat:1005
    Bench:625
    Deadlift:670
    TOTAL:2300

    For as bad as I was feeling, it turned out to be an awesome day. My deadlift sacrificed the most, but I was able to pull what I needed to get the total I wanted. Now, i'll take this week off and then return back to the gym next week to get ready for my next journey!!!

    Thanks alot guys, it was a really fun meet with alot of top lifters. Not to mention, it was also a pleasure to see Kieran Kidder back on the platform. I'm not sure what his total was but he did place 2nd in the SHW.

    Bench - 611.7 - 628.2

    Thanks everybody, I really appreciate it!!! I was really nervous, because I went into the meet being sick. But, I guess it didnt really bother me to much.
