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?

    You lift raw? You divebomb or have a slow descent? The knee sleeve xt is the sleeve with a latch on it right? Those aren't wraps and may be illegal in several federations (sorry if you already knew that lol).

    It comes down to everyone's preference. I like the Convicts but if I lifted in a raw meet that allowed wraps I might go with something different.

    I like the APT hybrid strangulator/convicts. I have the knee wraps and wrist wraps and like them both.

    I'd look into something other than APT. Not because of quality, APT is some of the best quality stuff you can get... But because they've been out of stock on everything for around 5-6 months now it seems.

    That sucks, because I was wanting to get a new pair of wrist wraps. I might try some from Titan.

    I have Inzer XTs (for both elbows and knees) and I like them quite a bit. Without tightening them up they feel a lot like a single ply Convict but if you really crank them down they're closer to a very tight 2ply sleeve.

    I really like that they're easy to get on and off and that you can adjust the tightness.

    If you get them I'd recommend House of Pain instead of direct from Inzer. Way better service. Good luck

    Just checked APT's site...

    http://www.prowriststraps.com/weight...erlifting_wrap

    They removed a ton of stuff from the site... And if you order the wrist wraps there it says they ship two weeks from Jan 26th. So maybe they're getting some stuff back in?

    That's big time encouraging.

    I'll probably still go with Titan, just because I want to try their wraps.
