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?

    Shirt arms too tight and too long?

    Metal bash 2ply and i can't put it on inside out either because the arms are too tight. When i got the shirt a couple months ago i put it on myself and pr'ed easy i guess my arms got bigger cause now its super hard to get on and i'm getting less pop out of it. Should i just roll the sleeves down a little. To give you an idea of how tight it is, last time i wore it i pinched a nerve and two of my fingers were numb for a few days. This sucks cause its brand new.

    You might think about trying to stretch the sleeves out a little by blowing up a football in each arm and leaving it there for several hours. You just have to be careful so you don't stretch the sleeves out too much the first time.

    I Wore a bash for a while and loved that Shirt. Like Sean said the football move works great. Also what works is put the shirt in between two barbells from a rack and gently pull them apart.

    Poly has to balls toight for it to work so dont go too crazy stretching wise.

    I would do this incremently, maybe 20-30 minutes at a time. I left the football in too long and made the arms in my Bash too big.

    Have you tried wetting the sleeves down and then wearing the shirt? Sometimes this is a good solution and shouldn't stretch it too much. You can always go with the ball later if it doesn't work.
