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?

    Best sumo night I've seen you have before. Starting to look like you have the suit figured out, now it's time to start fireing those glutes. A few weeks of bands and your pull is going to fly. Can't wait to see it. Keep it up Tim. I think you have that 635 in you now, just need to get used to the transition when the suit stops helping out.

    Nothing sad about changing styles and still pulling 6 man. You've got plenty of strength left in the tank that you just can't use yet because you're still getting the technique down. Your pull will make a ton of progress in a short amount of time. And it's coming soon. Sorry I had to jet out on the rows man. I really wanted to get them done tonight. How'd they feel?

    You looked like a bull today man. Despite not having much sleep you look like a hefty freaking bull. Great job on the squatting. Those looked easy.
