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?

    I would love to try this. But my chins would be 1.. and due to a weird issue with my elbow I can't actually come back up from a dip... I may try it anyway though!

    Travis,

    I might have my son that is going to the SEALs do this test. I won't enter him,but would be cool to see his numbers on this.And your talking chin-ups,not pull-ups right?
    He has to take another SEAL test tomorrow so maybe next week.

    Good luck to those that do this.Is there a old guy catagory?

    I'd do it, but I'd have to take more than a 15 second break after tearing my biceps off during the chin ups

    For me it would be going into full extention with my arm all the way over my head that would send me back to the MRI machine.

    Im out.

    It took me 15 seconds to recover from just reading that.

    I think I'd tear a muscle too trying it!

    hahahaha!

    Yeah I won't be doing this one lol. NO chance I'd come in even close.

    This actually wasn't my idea for the competition, but it was one that we wanted to open up to more of the bodybuilding guys on the board. Otherwise all us powerlifters are going to take everything

    Can't always have that.

    But yeah, endurance stuff sucks

    If it weren't for the chin ups, I think most powerlifters would do well in this. Pushups are just an upside down BW bench, dips are just BW tri ext and our ROM on situps is short. LOL.
    Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!

    I think the idea is great. Thank God for the chin ups, otherwise I'd probably try it and I would suffer dearly for a while. I have a couple of meets coming up in the next two months. I often get stupid around that time. No need to tempt me.

    I'm pretty sure Becky is going to try it next week, since she's competing this weekend. She also does crossfit, so I think she'll do pretty well.

    My bad, I posted it in a hurry and cut a little bit of the code short. Fixed it.

    just completed this, much harder than i thought it would be when i finished i felt like puking and couldnt lift my arms. Originally i thought i was going to train shoulders after but i had to go home. Shortest gym trip ever. Also sorry for the bad camera angles i had to film and time it myself. Breakdown and totals at the end of the movie.
