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?

    I did sumo speed pulls against quad minis last week for the first time and I worked up to 275lbs of bar weight, and it started to slow down on me also. But I really do like them, and I'm starting to like sumo. I'm probably going to do them again this Friday, but move the bands out a little more to add more tension.

    335x2 same put briefs on here
    425x3setsx2 same
    475x2 same
    515x2 same
    565x1 same should have doubled
    605x1 same a little scary but got it. kind of got half way to the box and fell on it, but got up ok.

    Sumo pull with briefs on
    315x5

    You looked strong as hell today man. The last squat was a little scary but you came up with it nicely. Great recovery. Sorry I didn't stick around for the accessory work inside, the strongman stuff outside was calling me. Now my hips are calling me. Some really bad names.

    Great lifts with the PRs Tim!
    Man seeing those lifts makes me want to go to the gym today and lift ... but I know I'll wait and do them next week.
    Good Luck,
