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?

    Any Olympic Lifters Here?

    Hey all,

    I'm just seeing if there is anyone else on here that does Olympic lifting. I know Zen does, but other than that I am not sure. I'm new to it so I'm just curious to see if anyone lifts Oly, or competes in it.

    Thanks,

    Zach

    I've been playing around with it but I'm still very poor at it (numbers around 80kg/100kg). They're climbing pretty quickly though. Competeing for the 2nd time in April
    I'm weak now, but not for long

    Cricket,

    Where are you competing? I stumbled upon the team here at Lindenwood University in Missouri, and it turns out that there are some pretty crazy lifters. I'm just starting this year and ran into a shoulder issue. My lifts are pretty terrible at the moment, but I'm still working on form.

    I'm up in Canada; meet is in Toronto I believe.

    I'm in the same boat as you re. technique. I've got an ok strength base from powerlifting so it's deffinatly helping, but technique and timing is slowing me down big time (that, and the fact that I'm still powerlifting while trying to get good at the OLifts at the same time)
