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?

    7 weeks out SQ/DL training

    I always post my videos in my journal, but since a lot of you prob don't go there I figured I would share this here. I have been comepeting in powerlifting for 9 years now and have prob done over 30 meets. I have never competed without using at least one piece of gear(bench shirt and/or SQ/DL suit). The meet I will be lifting in on Dec. 3rd I will be competing in a belt+wraps. I am really excited. The training has been very different as opposed to getting ready for equipped meets. The stress level going in is way down because you don't have to worry about what weight you can touch or how much it will take to break parallel. I will be competing @165 and that's what I weighed today.

    Are you guys looking to compete? At World's there is a monolift and we have specialty bars and chains. They are cool with us using chalk and stuff and everyone else pretty much stays out of our way, lol.

    I hear ya man. The right atmosphere is huge when it comes to powerlifting. Also, your lifts are more than up to par to compete. I have been lifting a long time and you have me smoked in the bench and your squat and deadlift are both very good. You guys should take a trip to World Gym. You can pay $10 to lift for the day to try it out. They might even have a free pass offer out there somewhere if you search for it.

    If I were around a gym with a monolift, I'd train there in a heart beat. (THAT and with a good core of people who know what the fuck they are doing)
