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?

    First heavy bench day in about a month, UPA nationals is on April 17th, so i have a few heavy training days left before the meet, looking to hit a new PR at the meet.

    Good job, but why the thumbless grip? You've always done great with a regular grip.
    Can't wait 'til tomorrow, 'cause I get stronger every day!

    Thanks! And honestly it feels way better than doing the regular grip. When i trained close grips about 2 months ago and maxed out with 510, i had a thumbless grip and it felt really good, felt like i could drive/push harder with my triceps. So i decided to give it a try with my competition grip (ring fingers on the rings) and it felt the same. I've been practicing with this grip for a few weeks now, but yesterday was my first day going heavy and with pauses with that grip.

    Thanks! Yes, i had a pec tare back in July and it took me awhile to heal up, it wasn't until october that i hit my first 500 raw bench since the injury. The day i got injured, i paused 525 for my best PR and it tore when i was doing heavy reps after. So my goal is to beat that paused bench in my full power meet... probably go for around 240kg (529lbs) on a 3rd attempt next month.

    I noticed that you're on your toes, do you finds you can use leg drive better than flat footed?
