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?

    Bench press off the pins starting in the bottom position (on chest). I set the pins so that when I arch my chest touches the bar, then I press it off the pins.

    Bottom position anything is brutal without getting that stretch reflex in there. Row, row, row your boat. Have a nice trip OR. Can't wait to hear about the jeep PRs.

    I am baaaaack...

    Great trip for wheeling but lousy trip for camping. I wheeled the entire five days without breaking anything and didn't get stuck once. However, I did flop my rig over once. I'll post some pics of it after my buddies send me some. Man, those rocks get bigger every year.

    Camping in the desert sucks balls. My tent had an inch of sand inside it and the wind was howling 30 miles per hour all day and night. I got very little sleep because my tent kept laying over on top of me during the night. Finally ended up sleeping in front of the truck the last two nights.

    Thanks everybody. I am all settled back in and ready to resume training on Monday. I will post some wheeling pics as soon as my freind gets back into town, he went rafting after the wheeling trip. I will also make it back into your journals to see how everything is going with all of you. Thanks for the support and HAPPY EASTER!
