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?

    I need to buy an olympic barbell.

    I don't care about the length particularly but it needs to be able to hold olympic plates. I'm not going to use it much honestly, I just need one in my house for hip thrusts and maybe the occasional bench press workout.

    I'm not good at online shopping but I want to get a good price - could someone point me in the right direction?

    Ha, maybe in Bakersfield. I would be willing to drive a pretty good distance but there are no good deals in my area - most people are selling "standard" barbells (those skinny, pussy ones that can't even hold olympic plates) and everyone wants to sell what they have as a set. The cheapest BB I found on craigslist costs well over $100 and comes with a bench and a bunch of weights that I don't need...
    I'll definitely keep checking that, though
