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?

    Raw united fed questions

    I can't get into the USAPL meet I want (damn meet is full) to so I have to find something in the same timeframe. I have a raw united meet 20 miles away that is a good fit.

    Any one lift in this fed? Do they use a deadlift bar? Do they allow the cloth knee sleeves? Does thickness matter?

    Thanks in advance.

    They use a DL bar here in Florida, so I'm sure they would. As far as I know, it doesn't matter what kind of knee sleeves, as long as it doesn't fasten. So pretty much everything but the Inzer knee sleeves.

    Careful Scott, you do a meet without the ridiculous rules enforcement and a deadlift bar and you'll leave the USAPL for good! haha.

    I feel dirty even mentioning another fed. I just found out today I can't get into the raw united meet either(full).

    I'm going off the deep end and into RPS. I'm going monolift, knee wraps, and DL bar.

    I don't know Travis. Even as a member, it doesn't get much darker than the usapl

    Amazing to me a meet would not have room for Scott Yard! Would usapl deny Mark Tuscherer or Blaine Sumner entry to a meet because it was full? Scott is every bit the name these guys are.

    Not even ass kissing or blowing smoke. I just don't comprehend this.

    haha trust me I understand. I spent quite a bit of time competing in the USAPL. Then I went to an APF meet and realized people could actually have fun at a meet lol

    Wonder what happened. Rather than turn lifters away, Spero usually just goes with a.m. & p.m. flights and/or extends the meet to two days. Where is the venue?

    For future reference, Convict knee sleeves are pretty popular at Raw United meets, and I've never known anyone to be asked if they were double ply.

    Thanks for the knee sleeve referance. The meet is in a small cross fit gym in Westminster me. Speedo isn't the meet director. No biggie though. I found a RPS meet. Just got some new knee wraps in.
