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?

    I got 24. Not my best, so ill try again next week. My wrap flies off on rep 4, but no big deal. And I layed the weight down on my lap and then put it on the floor. Would never do this with heavier weight without a spotter. BW-214 39y/o

    Dam, if I had a spotter, I'd do this...without a spotter, I'd only attempt 8. With one, I could hit around 12-13. Not the best, but hey, it's better than not lifting at all.

    Here, just did 11:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbKA4-QWSbY

    Could do more, and will later, but I had no spotter and the bar was freezing cold (it was in my garage in the winter in WV). Actually made me feel better, as I did it easier than I've ever done it, so I'll try it later. And for anyone who says it's not 225 (just in case someone might say something) it's 45s 35s and 10s...I only have 2 45s...


    EDIT: Dam, I didn't see that 19 was now third place...I would've gone for more

    Shane Church is impressive.

    All reps need to touch the chest. To be counted, each repetition must get very close to full lockout. Complete locking of the elbows will NOT be required, but be warned that ½ and ¾ reps will be discounted. Final judgment for what is a full rep will be at the sole discretion of our judging panel. Rest pauses will be allowed, but not that exceed 4 seconds, and no more than 2 total.
    Phil I doubt that's going to cut it, but you still have plenty of time to take another video if you want man

    225 for reps

    Hey guys, I am Jordan Linteris and I was messaged from someone to check out the contest here. Good idea to get some new people to the site and things like this get my attention. Anyways, here is my 225for reps vid. I made this vid a while ago and now have a pinched nerve in my c7 so my right tricep is a mess. Otherwise I would make an updated video. Anyhow... enjoy.

    Nice effort, but unfortunately that video is almost a year old. And some of the reps are questionable but the video angle makes it hard to judge. Hopefully you'll be healed up when we have another one of these contests because I think you would do well.
