The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    425 and minis - Football Bar Bench

    Took this vid tonight at my gym while training. I'm just terrible at the football bar, which is probably why I need to work on it more. It's just awkward but I do find that it improves my technique considerably when I work hard at it.

    Weight is 425 bar weight and minis so around 515 at the top. Nothing really earth shattering, I just haven't uploaded a video in quite some time so I figured I'd do it tonight while I was thinking about it.

    Looked good to me! I have never trained with a football bar but plan to pick one up soon.
    Whoever said "Good things come to those who wait" couldn't have amounted to much. If you want it get off your lazy ass and get it!!
