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?

    Home Setup - is this a good deal?

    http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/hab/1691287179.html

    I know it's not a full rack, but I live in an apartment so I'm thinking this will be a good option in my situation. I just left the guy a message telling him I wanted to buy this, because it sounds like an amazing deal. What do you guys think?

    That seems like a perfect setup for an apartment, you can bench and squat in a small space.

    Just watch out if you plan on deadlifting on carpet. I'd throw a pad down to protect it.

    Oooh good thought, I'll have to pick up some padding to put down then. Glad to hear someone else thinks it's a good option. I just hope the guy calls me back. It was only posted yesterday so I'm pretty sure the guy hasn't sold it yet.

    Awesome news -- Just heard back from the guy and I'll be picking this stuff up tonight at 5:30.

    What kind of padding should I get for the floor? 1/4 inch foam type or what? Where would I get it at? I had some before but it came with the rack I bought from a guy up in MN so I don't know.

    You guys never worry about busting through the floor in an apartment/upstairs room?

    I don't have personal experience with it, but I seem to recall someone in a thread (I think Travis Bell) saying they use horse mats.

    That's what I thought someone said. I'll have to look into it. Just picked everything up last night and miraculously fit it all in my car. I was glad to see that I'll be able to OHP, I was worried about ceiling height.
