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?

    my experience with overkill shirt

    quick post. ordered the shirt, asked rudy two thousand questions before ordering,he was very helpful, i got a 2ply shirt, three ply sleeves, 3 inch scoop. at first shirt looks similar to a rage,i thought what is the big deal? i tried the shirt. NOTHING like rage!! works great, crazy carryover at the top and through the whole lift. weights move quick off the chest. first time using the shirt, got it to touch a 1 board., shirt broke in quick. works great and tied my pr off the one board, but it was way easier and could have done even more. two thumbs up!

    Have to be honest, I really want to give one of these a shot.

    I like the sound of double ply chest and triple ply arms.

    I was alittle skeptical but after seeing Rock work in it last night, I might just move out of my SDP and end up with one of these. The shirt looks promising. Also didn't you grid stitch the sleeves?

    i was thinking of going all triple ply, but i talked to rob L, and he was using the double, i figure if a guy benching close to a grand is using double, than a guy pressing in the 600's doesnt need a triple. the 3ply arms are great. feel that it helps give me more at lockout and more carryover through the lift. from what i understand, it is how the freak show gets his rage x shirts.

    yes sam, grid sleeves, i dont like the sleeve material to bunch up. no grid on chest, i like the chest to stretch, the grid IMO thorws in more stoping power, and i dont really need that

    If you touched in the shirt the first time its no where near tight enough.

    He didn't, he hit a one board with the shirt wetted down.

    so I tried out the 3 ply Overkill briefs yesterday......the hips were looser than I would have liked in the briefs, especially considering how the Overkill stuff seems to work better the tighter it is. Even so, the briefs felt unreal. Not as much stopping power as the Ace but they gave me a good amount of pop, even with just the briefs on I was coming out of the hole faster than with my old Ace breifs ( again, not knocking the Ace briefs, they were old and shot)...... I did one light set with a suit over the briefs just to feel them out and it was a huge difference in feel from the Ace under the canvas.... I was able to hit depth easier, but I felt a lot more pop and was coming up a lot faster..... as it was the first week in the briefs I only went to a low 700#ish squat...... I'll push heavy next week after I bring in the hips a 1/2" and see how they hold up..... over all very impressed....

    yeah last custom shirt I had was a Karin's DD and it worked like a charm til I outgrew it

    You can't argue with Rudy's build time either, 7-10 days is very impressive.
