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?

And yes you have to lock the shit out. So make sure you can handle those rules before you enter because nobody wants to listen to any crying after the challenge is over.
    Yes, RPS rules will be enforced. One thing we will have to discuss is the time between lifts. This needs to be addressed because there won't be as many weight changes to slow things up, plus as guys drop there will be less athletes between lifts.

    April, you find me 15-20 guys who'd like to compete in this and I'd be thrilled. Not as many people as you'd think have the balls to jump in on this.

    Of course I need a wingman. This isn't something I can do by myself. You know that, Scott.

    No soft hand-offs? A "Press" cpmmand? A "Bnech" command? Locking it out?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Dude, this is quite a lot to ask.

    This is going to be a great thing to watch, especially with my wingman and drinking specialist, Scott Yard.

    Ok. I figured there were more than enough 700+ benchers with shirts the way they are now. You might be right though. I will ask if anyone I know wants to do the meet.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Yeah, April if you could spread the word I'd be greatly appreciative. Thanks.

    A new wrinkle to the Last Man Standing Bench Contest

    There will be two divisions, a lightweight and a heavyweight. The lightweight will be the 220 class and under and the bar weight will start at 550. Gene will be throwing $250 in prize money in to go along with the cash from the $50 entry.

    Same goes for the heavyweights, I'm putting in $250 and each $50 entry goes into the winner pot as well. The bar will start at 700 for the heavyweights.

    Any tie goes to the lighter lifter. Do not confuse this with a formula, no formula is being used here. If you are a lighter guy don't think you don't have a chance. I have seen plenty of bombs in my years lifting. The cool thing about having the two classes is that it will give lifters time between rounds. We will run a rond of lightweights and then a round of heavyweights and then repeat until we are done.

    This is going to be a great contest. It's being held at the RPS PA States in Lancaster PA on 7/28.

    The heavyweights who have thrown their shirt in the ring so to speak are me, Travis Bell, Rob Luyando, Rob "Tee Tee" McCray, Chris Smith, and Brandon Lilly.

    Gene says he has a number of lightweights interested presently. We will post names as we get them.
