The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Way to go Vincent!

    Vincent made weight. 242 Wow. Vincent has been through a lot this past year. His discipline is inspiring! All of you that have known Vincent know that for years he was a 308er and SHW. He said he would make 242 and laid out a plan and stuck to it. Can't wait to hear of his results! Best of luck Vincent own the platform. SFW bro!

    Wow! I thought this was a joke when I first read it. From SHW/308 to 242??? Amazing. I'm anxious to see how it effects his #'s. How much of it was "cut" and how much was actual weight loss?
    Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!

    I believe he dieted to around 260 and then cut water from there

    Wow. Good job Vinny. Is Vinny lifting raw or did he get fitted with a new shirt? Either way, I wish him luck.

    Pretty sure he got fitted with a new shirt. From what I've read, I think he is going to do like his last meet opening with a loose shirt and moving to a tighter shirt for his 2nd and 3rd attempts.

    Vincent hit 730 on his opener and got bad call on his second and third attempt w 750. He walked away with first place and best lifter. Talked to some guys that were at the meet and all three of his attempts were smoke shows! Congrats Vincent!

    Way to go Vin!! Changing your leverages like that and still cranking out 730 is awesome. I'm sure once you give yourself a bit more time to acclimate to the weight class it'll be even more impressive.
