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?

    Road To A Double BW Chin..

    Just decided to make this one for some lat competition. We have pressing and deadlifting comps going on but nothing for upper back strength.

    Whos coming even close to this?

    If I am not mistaken Belial is chinning +145 for a single which is something like 1.65 x his BW (220).

    PowerManDL is chinning +115 for a single which is actually 1.7 x his BW (165). Wow. Those guys are just insane.

    Back to the rest of us...

    Where are you guys at?

    Why not ask B?



    I'll be in this contest. But I'd rather get to a true one handed pull-up (One hand behind the back) first.

    Hehe aight man, can you get +95 for 5? I can get +95 for 1. Haha. What a shame.

    You would rather get a true one-handed pull-up from rock buttom? Wow that would be impressive.

    +90 x 4 huh B? Damn man thats still friggin' impressive as hell. Then again +90 x 4 is what like 310 lbs. chinning weight? Where +90 for a lighter guy would be less.

    Seems harder heavier guys to do dips and chins, etc.

    Dude, you need to do your math properly lol. If Belial weighs 220, how is chinning 145 1.65 his body weight? A double body weight chin would be 440 pounds, wouldn't it? Or did I read everything wrong?

    Him chinning 145 is .65 of his body weight man.

    heathj:

    Nice strength man! 25 reps is a ton.

    Mystic Eric:

    I was multiplying the 1.65 x 220. And getting what, 363 if I am not mistaken correct? Then if you add +145 to his bodyweight you get 365 I believe. So its pretty close.

    For this I am combining the person's BW + the weight that they attach. Not just the weight they attach.

    How about you go

    145 + 220 = 365....365/220 = 1.659

    Wow, math is really simple isn't it?

    208 +132 =340 pound

    this is the 1t time I have done these.
    Saw some one in the gym with a weight belt. so thought i would borrow it.

    Though he show me where he leaves it. so will go for more later this month.
    I had just finished a hard leg session so was not at my strongest when doing pull ups. will have a go for more when my back is fresh.

    for the record i do palms facing me.
    my exprience - joined gym 10 years ago, 6 1/2 years hard weight training exprience.
