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?

    Here is video of his axle press, 415 lbs x 5 clean each rep with a non-revolving axle (significantly more difficult).

    wow, massive deadlift and massive clean/press

    kind of a weird way of cleaning the weight to the shoulders. but then again its 415lbs and he handles it like its 135

    It's a continental clean. Tom can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's used in events like this where the axle doesn't rotate because it puts less torque on the wrists and the momentum won't throw you backwards.

    Yes, that is a continental clean. One of the competitors (Koklayev) is a world class olympic lifter and he also uses this technique because the power clean is not very effective with a non-revolving bar. Savickas has done power cleans in the past on the axle when the weight was 370 lbs but that was likely because it was light for him and he did not have to worry about conserving energy.

    Yes, it is great for the USA to have such depth now - multiple WSM finalists and two Americans on the podium at the Arnold.
