The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    too legit. Unfortunately people are gonna hate no matter how the video looks. Unless its a usapl squat people are gonna talk crap. THats an amazing squat and your the first to do it, regardless of what other people will try to take away from it. Awesome work.

    Crazy stuff. A thousand pounds is a thousand pounds regardless of how you do it. Is that a record of any type?

    amazing, hip crease is definitely at least parallel. a couple vids ago someone mentioned that its hard to tell your depth because your legs are so big. i think that is exactly the problem from the other vids that causes people to question depth. outstanding man

    Congratulations on your world record Rob!

    I train with Henry Thomason, he's short and about 300-315. It's very, very hard to judge depth on him. I'm sure it's even tougher with a guy your size.

    Take away the meat, and I bet that femur went lower than the hip or parallel to it. I could only see it on my phone, but you can see a rebound at the bottom of the hole. Its a bad angle to judge depth anyways.

    Tell em to suck it. That weight would break 99% those haters in half. No doubt its impressive for someone to even unrack 1000 pounds, let alone squat it.

    that looked awesome big man! I've seen multi-ply squats at that weight that came up slower.
    I said the same thing on outlaws.....
    All the hate just shows that the RAW!!! nazis don't really want to see raw lifting get any notoriety, they just want a reason to bash people. Now that you did something good every 170# computer warrior needs to find something like kneewraps, bodyweight, lack of hair, zodiac sign.... whatever to try to make themselves feel special. In the end if I were given a choice to gain 100# to be able to squat like that I would take it in a heartbeat.

    The real question isn't depth or knee wraps.....


    it's when is your next meet, and what is your next goal?

    Rob,

    Amazing work. The squat was crazy strong and fast. I was super impressed with your 605 bench. I know you've hit 635, but that 605 was smoked.

    Great work. The most impressive thing I've ever seen done in the strength world. Just awesome.

    Good to meet you big dog. You're the only man I've ever seen that makes TT look not as big. Rest up and we'll see you on the platform again, soon.

    I've watched this squat from every angle out there and every time I see it, it just gets more amazing. The speed and depth on the squat were both perfect. It looked like a warm up.

    Hey Rob, you are an awesome lifter. Your peers hold you in the highest regard. They don't talk junk about nobodies. I was in the back room warming up, but every man, woman, and child there said it was a good lift.

    Do not defend yourself anywhere. You don't need to. You are the greatest raw squatter of all time. Congrats big man!

    Definitely. People who talk bad about lifts are generally the ones who aren't doing any real work at the gym. Its the same obvious cycle that we see everywhere. Only the haters have time to talk about others, and that's cause they ain't doing it themselves.
