The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Friday bench video

    Training is going well so I am planning to hit a meet 1/31. I should be able to make 275's. Karsten was a workhorse, lifting off for both me and Tee Tee, who lifted heavier than I. I think we're killing his bench, but his dl is going to skyrocket.

    Strong work Vin! How much tension does the short purples add? Am I correct in thinking they are cut short enough to eliminate the need to double them...so the tension would still be like doubled purples? 200#?

    Something in the low 700's for an opener. I believe the master world record for the IPA is in the high 600's. After that I will go for a meet pr with 805. After that I have a modest 15-25 lb. jump in mind.

    I gotta' figure out why my computer won't play this format video all of a sudden. Missing these vids is frustrating. 275's wow! Look out Vinnie or they'll start calling you 'Skinny Vinnie' again! LOL!
