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?

    Powerlifter's first try at CF

    While I have lots of facebook friends into crossfit, I never tried until Saturday at a meet in my town ( kinda by accident)
    I posted a report about it here;

    Would you be able to post a quick summary of how you did and what your thoughts are? Looks like the article is pretty thorough but also a lot to read.

    Well, I only was a stand-in for 1 15 min round( heat,flight, whatever CF calls it). I made it through the flight without dying is about the most positive thing I can say. Burpee box jumps, person carry, kbell carry or holding a kbell while "resting" briefly for the whole 15 minutes pretty much non-stop. The other issue I have is that that was the first real attempt at running at all since tweaking my Achilles tendon over a year ago. Before that, I was doing a bit of interm. jogging during walks, doing some tire flipping, farmer's walks & such for conditioning, but just some walking & recumb bike recently
