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?

    thanks johnnyo and Scott... I will definitely work on a better arch,

    robchris - raw only, primarily due to training alone.

    55,
    Do you compete? If so, get yourself a good DL suit and see what you can do... BTW, I usually get mine on by myself so it doesnt have to be so tight!

    I get 30+ lbs. out of mine...(Titan velocity 1-ply)

    Good luck,
    RC

    The first vid you have your weight forward on your toes and your heels come off the ground, thus the stall off the floor. Form looks pretty good on the second, great lift bud.
