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?

    Great job man. That's a good looking squat. Lifts like that and you'll place well in your class.

    Solid squat man, I hope to hit 500 before I graduate (next few months).

    Out of curiosity, have you ever checked your vertical? Can you grab rim?

    Thanks guys!! Nick the song in the vid it the same song I listened too while hitting that 500x1. Carnifex!!

    I'm not sure what my vertical is. Genetically I've always had ****ty hops growing up I never wanted to be the kid to do the tip off. Since I started squatting my hops have gotten much better. When I play basketball I get comments on how high I can jump and rebound over the bigger guys. I can jump and hang on a rim but still can't dunk. It is one of my goals. Weird thing is I was always pretty fast and still am but couldn't jump till I started squatting. Usually speed and jumping go together.

    From todays training

    535x1

    Video


    Kinda looks high but if you pause it at the right moment it would pass in competition probably a 2 white 1 red which is perfect. What do you guys think? I also had some left in the tank on this lift.

    Good lord, dude. Jealous of your squat. Our benches and deadlifts are similar, but your squat owns mine. By a lot. Damn you

Iíve got scars and blood and vomit."

    Thanks Kosh! I was born to squat! After further evaluation I've decided to count the 535

    How many raw comps allow wraps? I used them for the first time the other day, and they added 30 lbs right away. Had I wrapped them tighter and gone a bit heavier, I could've gotten a lot more out of them.

    I say this not to discredit your lifts, it's just because I want to compete raw eventually and I'm curious what the percentage of raw competitions is that allow knee wraps. I was under the impression that most allow only belts, a lot allow only belt and wrist wraps and a pretty small portion allow belts, wrist wraps and knee wraps.

    I dunno how many raw feds allow wraps I know some do. Even if you don't compete in wraps they are still an excellent tool to utilize.

    Great lift. As long as at least one fed says wraps are raw, that works for me.
