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?

    Scott Weech and April Mathis

    I want to wish Scott Weech and April Mathis the best of luck. They are both lifting at the APF Raw Nationals today at the Europa in Orlando. I'm not sure what numbers Scott is looking for, but I know April is wanting to total 1650. Good luck to both of you!!!

    You know what, she is a real big woman, correct? I think she was at one of the Pro-Ams I attended several months ago. She competed equipped there. She had a tough time with the dead because she is so darn big she just couldn't get into position at the bottom.

    Are you sure you're not thinking of Melissa Garrett? She typically competes equipped and is 6'2" SHW.

    Chris, you are thinking of Melissa Garret. Melissa is 6'2. She's second behind Becca Swanson in the squat, bench, and total for all time records. April is no where near as tall as Melissa. April is also not a small woman. As far as I know, she almost always competes RAW. April pretty much dominates the raw womans records.

    As I understand it, part of Melissa's deadlift problems are because of the multiple surgeries she's had on her left (I think its left) knee. One of her knees is all scared up from the reconstruction and other surgeries she's had to it.
    Finally ELITE @ SHW..

    Single ply: 931 squat, 760 bench, 530 deadlift and 2180 total
    Multi ply: 960 squat, 770 bench, 550 deadlift and 2250 total.

    The next stop: PRO total.

    Your thinking of someone else, April has never lifted in gear. She has been giving it some thought, but she wants to accomplish some raw goals first.

    What Raw goals does April have left? A 1,600 lbs total is awesome! Congrats to Scott on a big meet when he wasn't at 100%!

    I'm pretty sure she wants to squat 700, bench 500, and pull 700. But I'm not sure, we haven't talked about it in awhile.

    Those are awesome goals and I know April is perfectly capable of achieving each one of them. If she can put it all together in one competition... damn that would be a hell'uva a total!
