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?

    Your body is your temple, make it strong! (Super Training Gym)

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Chris Ramos, and I just completed my first powerlifting meet. I have been training at Golds Gym for the past 3 months to try and earn a nice total. I was able to meet my goal of at least 1200lb RAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11

    I totaled 1287 lb // 585 kg with 7/9 lifts completed in Sacramento at Super Training (SPF meet 3/20/2011)

    My training is mostly with straight weight, about 50% machines and 50% free weights. Some triple sets, but mostly heavy singles. I like to do dynamic effort work about once a month.


    The camera was acting up but I was able to get most of my lifts on video but I don't have my first squat and first pull...comments?


    I will continue logging in a couple days, this meet left me a bit... sore

    The first squat was good, second miss, third easy rep (440lb / 240kg no knee wraps)
    The first bench was good, second good, third miss (319lb / 145 kg)
    The first deadlift was good, second good, third good (528lb / 240 kg)

    I took a break from training to deload and overcome an injury. I saw a chiropractor and I think all is better now. I had some serious numbness all over my forearm and hand. Anyway, I was able to get a PR in my ME movement and PRs across the board with accessory movements so I am definatly feeling good!
