The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    That's damn impressive, every rep was buried. I'm surprised "near blacking out" wasn't in any of his captions.

    really impressive! just one thing. With heavier weights you can see his knees going in. Is that safe? Probably just a lost of concentration having done 20reps before, but those knees in really scared me.

    They did come in a little bit on the 562. I have no idea what was happening there, as that usually doesn't happen. It was probably fatigue.

    Yeah... I guess fatigue may occur after 462 x 20... Maybe.

    Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    Welcome to the board.

    I noticed that people were posting comments about switching back to Powerlifting after doing some bodybuilding. Do you think that the bodybuilding training has anything to do with your leg strength / strength endurance?

    Looks like you are going to do some damage at the Raw Unity based on the numbers that you have been hitting in training.

    I was doing Doggcrapp or something similar the entire time that I was training for bodybuilding. DC is very intense and forces you to constantly increase your weights or number of reps over time, so I got pretty strong on it. I would recommend it to a strength athlete looking to put on muscle and keep or increase their strength at the same time.
