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?

    Pro and Elite Totals?

    Are these the same thing (are you considered pro if you total elite)? Or are they different?


    Just something Ive been thinking about.

    For multi-ply there's a pretty big difference

    SHW = Pro - 2450, Elite - 2085
    308 = Pro 2350, Elite - 2040
    275 = Pro- 2250, Elite - 2000
    242 = Pro - 2150, Elite - 1940
    220 = Pro - 2050, Elite - 1875
    198 = Pro - 1900, Elite - 1780
    181 = Pro - 1750, Elite - 1692
    165 = Pro 1650, Elite - 1580

    Oh and I believe Louie lowered the pro totals by 50lbs this year so the difference was even greater before.

    Myself, as a fan, I'd rather see the totals stay the same, but make it a one day meet. That way you can travel home on Sunday and not miss anything. I understand the $ aspect though and needing the entry fees in order to keep the prize money and quality of the meet high.

    It would be interesting to see how many "pro's" there are in each class. They do seem a little on the low side, maybe another 100lbs may not be a bad thing for the pro total.
    Best lifts @ 226 lbs

    Squat - 903
    Bench - 573 / 617 @ 246
    Dead - 727

    Best Total - 2204 lbs @ 226 18/07/2010

    You can figure out how many there are if you get the lifter rankings on PLW. The popular weight classes (eg, 242-SHW) have 10-15. Some of the weight classes have <5.

    Ah ok.

    But does that include world wide lifters or just US? I would have thought there would be more than 15 in most classes each year

    Seems crazy that "elite" totals are lower than "pro" totals.

    That's just US I think. I think IPF style lifting is a lot bigger internationally. At least that's the word on PLW. Multi-ply is the American bastardization of the sport according to anonymous., haha.
