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?

    Eric Lilliebridge- 510lbs Raw close grip bench, PR

    Felt strong and solid tonight. Hit a new PR on close grips with 510lbs. Going to back off for a couple weeks and go lighter and then get ready for my training cycle in 4 weeks for UPA nationals in April.

    I'm not actually "cycling" my close grips, i just started doing a few workouts in these past 5 weeks to see how much i could get my close grips up to and my first workout i got 470 and now i ended at 510... every time i did close grips i was hitting a new PR.

    And the reason i do close grips is because my triceps are the strongest part of my bench, and whenever i do narrow grips or close grips, i feel even stronger and more solid when i go back to my regular competition grip (ring fingers on the rings)
