The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Babyeater Lifts: Powerlifting Adventures

    Hi everyone! I have been lurking around the site for a bit and really want to make a log and join the diverse group of lifters posting here. A little about me:

    Age: 26
    Height: 5'2"
    Weight: 110-113 note: I have competed twice in the 114 class and now plan to cut weight to 105 for my April 2013 meet.

    I began dabbling in strength training about two years ago in a very casual way. I have a fairly strong running background and spent most of my teenage and early adult years very wiry (under 100 lb) with basically no upper body strength whatsoever--and heck, given that all I was doing was running, no lower body strength either.

    In the later part of 2009/early part of 2010, I began to learn how to lift. Since that time period, I have experimented with various lifting protocols. Last year, I set a goal to register as "overweight" on the BMI scale and fell short two pounds when I stupidly came up with a sternum injury from performing dips too low. At my heaviest, I came in at 133 lb.

    In the later part of December 2011, I began lifting again seriously and trying to pull myself out of the hole I had fallen into mentally and physically. At this point, I have by far surpassed the strength levels I had attained back before the sternum injury but am roughly 20 lbs lighter than my high weight.

    I started training specifically for powerlifting at the end of April of 2012. I competed in my first meet in the 114 pound weight class in July; my total was 540. I will continue to compete in this weight class and would like to see significant increases in my total. I look forward to posting here--I've been lurking for a bit and absolutely love reading the logs of other female lifters on this forum.

    PR's as of February 2012:
    Squat: 187 (meet lift) Paused bench: 125 Deadlift: 300
