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?

    These figures are raw, but I thought they might be interesting to some.

    I thought this was pretty cool, and these folks seem to have a lot of neat stuff on the home page besides.

    Well I guess I'm advanced, and approaching elite. At least by someone's standards.

    I would say for regular gym goers who are not powerlifters those look about right.

    That is interesting, they define Elite as less than 1% of the weight-training population attaining that level. Interestingly enough (at least for 165) if you add their individual requirements up - it's pretty close to what was adopted by as the classification standard by 100% Raw and AAU for an Elite raw total. (1282 vs. 1298) Obviously a different definition of "Elite", but interesting nonetheless if it is true that only 1% of the weight-training population truly attains that level. Although my guess is that a higher percentage of lifters would hit these numbers.

    I'd say as far as the general population goes, 1% hitting those elite numbers is fairly accurate. I see a lot of people lifting weights in the commercial gym I go to, but I certainly don't see very many people hitting those elite numbers. You have to remember that powerlifters are probably less than 1% of the lifting population.

    I am not even sure 1% hit those numbers. I have never seen a 600 lb deadlift in a commercial gym. Ever. I have very rarely seen a parallel squat over 500 and i have trained at alot of gyms until i ended up where i am now. In all reality i have only seen a handful of non bounce 400 bench presses, but more than the squat and deadlift.
