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?

    Question, how do you get 405 out of that? You have 2 plates on the either side of the bar. Those plates are either 45 lbs, or 100 lbs. The bar is an Olympic style bar, thus is weighs
    ~45 lbs. So, you are either lifting 225 lbs or 445 lbs. Which is it?

    looks like 4 plates to me. Take a closer look at the 2nd pic; I think the low-resolutiuon is just makign it look like 2 plates instead of 4.... i am pretty sure I can see 4 plates a side in the 2nd pic

    Needsize - its me CoolColJ


    its 4x45s on each side and an olympic bar
    8x45=360+45(bar) = 405


    yeah its not a good angle. I should have taken the pic more front on.

    That looks like 2 plates on either side! Taking a closer look at the second pic, it has a very obvious line in the middle of what looks like 2 plates. Those two plates just look like they have a 'join' mark in the middle of them. I only see two plates on either side there! But then again, I'm blind.

    I see what you mean in the 2nd pic, but the plates seem quite skinny then, no? Maybe it is just the angle.

    You guys are blind. It's 4 plates. And I guess two plates would also make the bar bend a bit eh? Good pull.

    thanks guys

    Reinier - your not wrong


    That's North Shore Gym in Sydney.
    Very down to earth gym, cheap too.
    I can be seen there working out 5 times a week on average anywhere from 10:30am to 12:30pm
    On a layoff at present back in action next Monday!

    Its the only gym I've seen where it has such a high roof, and the main entrance is basicly a huge roller door, the bright area in the photos is where the entrance is. Definitely not a Chrome gym - I guess its kinda hardcore
    The high roof make you feel real small and insignifcant

    They used to have all these big old B&W bodybuilder pics on the wall, from 70s/80s. Someone complained about em and they removed most of them
    But where I took those photos, just on the wall in front above the power racks are the Arnold ones. They must be worth something, they're old and big.

    I guess people who hang out around the power rack don't mind these arnold pics
    Anyway they are building a new gym down the road which will be twice the size - I fear it will become all modern and glitzy and chromey

    I'll take some snaps of the gym and those Arnold pics the next time I'm there if anyone is interested

    I'll bet you it does champ, because these companies are in it to make money and that means catering for spandex users and abusers.

    North shore means which suburb exactly ?
