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?

    Thanks guys im pleased with the gains, i went from closing the #2-2.5-3 in around 3 months.

    I no longer get a thrill before going for the #3 but when going for the 3.5 i get fucking pumped!

    If you check out the grippers the only a few guys around capable of the 3.5 and just a handful of the 4.

    Once im 1mm or so from the 3.5 ill get a 4 to start on.....will be great to actually own one and work at it.

    Impressive, man. Judging by how I go on a number 1 I wouldn't be confident of even closing a 1.5.

    What's the end goal with all the grip work? Just to emasculate every guy unfortunate enough to shake your hand, haha?
