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?

    The guys are still deloading up to the show because of the circa max so everyone did their own thing. These workouts are typically a waste for myself and I was still extremely fried from the previous days benching.

    Didn't work out Wednesday due to some stomach pain the night before. Thought it was a hernia but it turned out to be constipation lol. Friday just worked up to 50% raw (425) and very little assistance. The meet is in a week and all I have on my mind is a 600+ bench. I'll worry about squatting and deadlifting after that.
