The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Strongman Competition Under 200 Class

    Here is a video from last weekends strongman competition. I ended up finishing 3rd overall.

    Event 1: Fire Truck Pull (37,000 pounds) for 80 ft. – I took 1st place on this event.

    Event 2: Tire Flip (800 pounds)/Farmers Walk (210 each hand) for 80 ft. each. - I took 5th place on this event.

    Event 3: Log Press (200 pounds) for reps in 1 minute. I hit 15 reps here to take 1st place on this event.

    Event 4: Car Deadlift (Honda Civic)for reps in 1 minute – I hit 26 reps on this event, hitting my 27th rep right after time was up. This was good enough for 3rd place on this event.

    Event 5: Stone Loading (5 stones – 180 pounds to 300) – I loaded all 5 stones, but my time was just fast enough for 3rd place.

    *Notice: At the beginning of the truck pull the man in black on the left is 3-Time World’s Strongest Man Bill Kazmaier.

    Thanks man! This is my 3rd NAS sanctioned competition, but 4th total. I've been training strongman for a little over a year, but I've been weight training for over 10 years. First for football, then got into bodybuilding, powerlifting, and now my favorite - strongman.

    Yeah, to be exact I've been training for strongman for about 14 months as of this competition.

    My first one wasn't sanctioned by NAS.

    My other 3 where NAS Sanctioned. These where March '09, December '09, March '10.
