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?

    Just a strong guy with a heck of a bench. Like I told him on RxMuscle, he needs to make sure he has good spotters with that kind of weight in case something goes wrong.

    Yep, especially if he is benching suicide grip and rebounding that way on his chest.
    That lift in my Federation (IPF) gets 3 red lights....

    looked like a belly toss more than a rebound..... does the IPF even look down on raw lifting now? I thought that the IPF and raw were united together in looking down on multi ply. Did I miss a memo?

    Strong guy. Just curious, I have been seeing a few videos around as of late of guys competing in shorts or sweats. Are singlets not required anymore?

    lots of unsanctioned meets are not requiring them anymore, even when Bennie broke the DL record he did not wear one. I don't think this is a terrible thing, nobody wants to see a bunch of huge shws in singlets hahaha

    I hate wearing a singlet too, but videos like this prove why they are a must at legitimate powerlifting meets. The guys butt comes way off the bench but it'd be difficult to judge it because his pants are so baggy.

    Quite strong, just making the point bout the singlets.

    I didnīt heard anything on multi ply. The IPF allows single ply polyester bench shirts and lifting suits; no open back or velcro back shirts and only poly, no denim or canvas.
    Usually RAW meets are held under local rules, which basically are exactly the same ones for IPF.
    Most important:
    SQ: The insertion of the femur in the hip must be lower than the insertion of the femur in the knee.
    BP: 1 second pause at the chest. In the case of RAW lifting, seems quite senseless.

    Next year (2012) a World RAW meeting will be held at Argentina, ruled under some Global Powerlifting Asociation (GPA).
    Have you ever hear of GPA? Is it serious?

    OK. Thanks for the feedback. I am probably wrong about the council that runs the meet. Let me check.

    Rgds!

    If that's how the IPF squat depth rule is worded I like it. I just wish they would judge it that way. When other feds judge by that very standard, they start saying we are squatting high. Just an observation.

    On the thread topic; that was a strong looking 'gym' lift. But I can't believe even a non-sanctioned meet would judge that loose. Belly blast was a good call. Still very strong.

    This is not a GPA meet. GPA is a legit federation. They held raw worlds in Jonesboro, GA a couple weeks ago. It is run by L.B. Baker. It is affiliated with APC.

    Even an unsanctioned meet, that is a very strong bench.
