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?

    Anyone still prefering a denim shirt ?

    With modern day polys what would be the reason for buying a denim ?
    Although still a beginner with shirts,i got an offer on one but don't know if it would be ok for my style (elbows out-low chest).Can it be tweaked to do that ?

    J.T., I think you'd be better off with a Phenom or Super Phenom if you want to keep you elbows out and not tuck much.

    I use a METAL DD and I feel really comfortable in this shirt and in any other denim shirt. I have a brand new Karen Kline double denim that I need to have altered a little more for it to fit me better. I haven't used any of the new poly material but i'm going to try and get this KK shirt to work for me before I buy a new shirt. I don't think a denim shirt is as technical as a new age poly. But like I said before, I haven't used a new poly shirt before.

    Greg Panora still uses a denim I think, seems to work for him..

    I think the groove in a denim is generally very low tough, most likely lower then the majority of polys. If you want to bench elbows out look into a Katana SS or Fury, but I would suggest you learn how to use a shirt properly, it will suck at first but in the end you will get a higher carryover.
