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?

    Josh McMillan hit a PR bench of 780. His training partner Clint Ewald hit 740 and missed 800 twice. Jeff Johnston hit 710 I believe. I ended up with 725 at 242. Not the meet I wanted--had some right arm problems leading up to the meet, but was able to get through it. I also switched back to my double ply Katana--it has F-6 material for the collar. Another female lifter to note was Darilyn Doddy--19 years old and benched 385.
