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?

    • Kinda looking for opinions on my deadlift. I tried pulling my max again, and I got 2. Should I have got more? Just concerned about pulling it only twice. Oh well, basically increased every other lift today. Hack squats with rubber weights make you look like a beast.

    I did get into a debate with the stupid weight room attendant about deadlifting. I was apparently making too much noise when I finished my sets. I will touch n go like everybody else, but when it comes to the last rep, I don't give a damn after I lock out. He gave me some bro-fitness critique on how I need to control the weight down at the very end or my workout would have been pointless. After giving him a physiology lesson, he still said other wise. Damn FLEX magazine, you scary.

    Granted, I do that in between reps, but my last rep, I'll take it where I need to and put it aside. He then tried to tell me that the weight could roll away and hit someone...I laughed in his face and continued pulling. I didn't know our weight room at University was turning into a Planet Fitness. I then mentioned that fact that I was lifting on a lifting pad that sat on top of a bouncy mat flooring and he proceeded to say I could still damage the bar. I then gave him a physics lesson. Still adamant. He just couldn't handle me out pulling him by 200# I guess.

    /end rant

    Good day today. increasing my seated calf raises was a good idea. I feel like I could go harder on these. Hack squats always my fave at the end. My quads benefit so much from these.
