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?

    Injuries and the bench press

    Back in 09 I ended up having a type 2 pec tear which is a rupture at the musculotendinous . The specialist looked at it and said that it was not worth having surgery on because it would be like sewing two pieces of tender steak together. During this time , I was in the States on a football scholarship . Since I was a international student I was pretty much forced to play ball due to time constraints on the visa . Long story short . I kept playing on a injured pec and have been struggling ever since.

    Im all done with football and have been really looking into powerlifting . Problem is , is that my bench has been a bitch . When ever I max out my right pec (torn) just seems to give way at the bottom of the bench . My left arm seems to shoot up while my right really struggles , looks like a wave motion. My right arm seems to keep up most of the time . It just starts "waving" once I hit 90%+ of 1rm .

    I was wondering if anyone has suggestions on how to fix this or if anyone has suffered something similar ? Maybe a different way of training around it or something . Im just really stuck on working this out
