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?

    Need Help for a project at work!!!

    I remember people talking a few months ago about people using weighted objects (like on worlds strongest man) to vary their workout routines.

    I need a sphere, preferably metal, that weighs 50lbs - 150lbs

    Any idea where to get one?

    Look into the fishing industry. Bouys and large commercial sinkers might fall somewhere into that weight range.

    Good luck with paying for it though... 150 pound spherical objects arn't going to be cheap.

    Maybe a bouy of some sort filled with sand?

    a possibly cheaper solution

    buy a draft ball (available at various beer places, at least they USED to be)... this is essentially a synthetic plastic ball with a spigoty thing on one end

    fill it with a combination of sand and/or heavier particles (lead, steel) to reach your desired weight. Such a thing is usually 12-18" in diameter and oughta weigh at least 50lbs full.

    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    oddly enough... I do need to figure a way to drop this from about 12 ft.
