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?

    Ha no worries. Figured I would try with the only vid I had that would fit. Good luck, guys!

    Does your ass have to stay in contact with the bench the whole duration?

    I would say it should. Even if it is minimal contact. Guess that makes it a tad difficult to judge on video. For now, I saw no issues with the top 3.

    Shane Church is impressive.

    If someone's ass comes up for the last couple of reps we probably won't have an issue with it. If it is off every rep that will be a problem.

    This challenge is fun to watch, but since I can only do 225x3 I am at a wicked disadvantage. It would be nice to maybe see a more reasonable number that a women could attempt (185 or so) or is just a testosterone "man" thing???

    Raw Elite classification in 3 weight classes

    raw squat: 380 lbs
    raw bench: 270 lbs
    raw deadlift: 430 lbs
    raw total: 1,080 lbs

    Well, considering is it in homage to the NFL Combine, and not too many women are showing their abilities there, I suppose it is a man thing...

    We'll do something for the fairer sex in the future, I promise.

    How long will this last? I think in 1 or 2 weeks (not even), I could get to 25-26, and maybe into top 3...
