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?

    Bench Press PR?

    Well I warmed up today on bench press and stuck 200 on there, what I've believed was my max for awhile now. I did 200 no problem, no struggling at all right. I figured I could get 210 so I put it on there and sat there resting for a few minutes cuz there was only one other person in the gym to spot me and she was in a set. I got to thinking way too much and must've psyched myself out cuz I pushed it slightly off my chest and then just seemed to give up. I guess I'll get it next time.

    Yup, I've been there. It's as much mental as physical. Only positive thoughts before a lift, don't be afraid of the weight ( having a good spotter that knows what they're doing is a necessity).
