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?

    Strength-weight Ratio

    Hey guys
    Its been about 1 year since the last poll. So I thought it would be interesting to see how everyones improved.

    This is how you do it:

    Take your big 3 total and divide it by your bodyweight (round up to 2 decimals).

    So mine would be 965 / 166 = 5.81

    I lost some weight over the year and I'm roughly the same in terms of strength . So what does your numbers look like?

    Getting there...dropped about 50 lbs in the last year and just started to raise my squat and deadlift numbers. Still losing weight and my deadlift moves up very regularly, so it's getting better everyday.
