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?

    Just wanted to let anyone know who's interested that I got a Slingshot through today and had a play during my ME bench session.

    Think it's a great piece of kit - especially for anyone who is long armed like me and has shoulder issues.

    I hate raw benching but this really took some stress out of it. Didn't add 100's of pounds and that;s not the point. It let me do some heavy non-shirted (I daren't saw raw lol) with ALOT less discomfort. I worked upto 440 pinky on rings and my max is probably 410-420.

    Big thumbs up and the best £40 I've spent this year

    I also just got one. It seems to add only about 10%, but the best thing is that it forces your elbows into
    a shirt-like groove. A nice piece for only $40.

    yea i got one too and i like it so far. What i've been doing is my normal 5/3/1 plus the slingshot at the end.

    So its like this (say it's my 3, 3, 3++ week):

    first set of three no slingshot
    second set of three no slingshot
    third set of three no slingshot for as many as i can and then quick throw on the slingshot without resting and do as many more as i can
