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?

    wraps for squatting

    I just recently got a pair of inzer pro wraps, was thinking about switching to the raw modern format for an RPS meet in May. How does everyone use wraps? Only for singles or for rep sets as well? I'm currently doing the 5/3/1 Powerlifting format as was thinking about using them for my heavy singles after the work sets. Any advice?

    I pretty much use them for 400+ lbs. My best gym squat without them is 405x1 and my best meet squat with them is 470.

    So my rep range is basically zero-infinity, depending on how strong I'm feeling that day with 400+

    I'm curious to see what I can squat with them, just don't want to get too dependent on using wraps.
