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?

    To me it looks like about 12 plates per side, or roughly 1125 lbs including the bar. He does not even look like he weighs that much! JEBUS!

    What are you talking about? It looks like 2-3 45lb plates and then 4 25s and then some various other sized plates.

    Wow, you are correct. I looked more closely. The people in the background made it hard to tell where the plates ended.

    It's 700 pounds

    His form looks terrible.
    Squats work better than supplements.

    His form looks terrible.
    Considering his narrow stance and long legs I'd still say that is a very impressive lift.
    Does anyone know how much he weighs?

    If that is a pic of Bob Hise's strength show in Chattanooga, Tennessee from 1947, Peoples is in fact lifting 700.That was done at a bodyweight of 190ibs!Not bad for a full-time farmer from Tennessee who trained either in his backyard or in his cellar.BTW, Peoples eventually attained an official deadlift of 725ibs and was rumored to have pulled close to 775 during training.

    Not as amazing as the training routine he used.Peoples would train the deadlift almost every day working up to a limit single every day.When he began to go stale on those, he would switch to squats using the same scheme.Limit singles every day.He also was very fond of limited-range movements aka partials.Peoples' mentality just goes to show the strong work ethic which was common back in those days.Even though it worked for him, I doubt many people today could match his schedule without suffering from severe overtraining.

    LOL, they even have like 5lb weights tied to the bar, get some more 45s, sheesh.

    Pretty damn amazing nonetheless.

    No room for collars on the bar? Maybe they were there just in case the weights started to drop off...
