The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Big Squat PR + video

    Yesterday I hit a huge squat PR. Wearing the same gear I used to hit 485, I hit a 30 lb PR of 515@153. This time I didn't even have the straps up. My goal for December is 555 and I took a big step closer to it today. Here is a link:

    Good job! Have the cameraman move to the left a little next time so we can see your thighs, though.

    Very nice
    My brother and I were brutal. I once chased him around the house with a spoon that I put on the burner. I burned that little pricks leg. -sharkall2003

    "Soli Deo Gloria"
    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    Thanks everyone.

    I know the video is tough because of the spotters, but I'd rather be safe then get a better shot on camera, lol.

    I had my cousin take video from the other side that is a better shot, but I can't get my videos online. Oh well.


    Big Ron- knee wraps won't neccessarily help with knee problems. They do add supposrt and allow you to lift more than you could without them. On the set before that one I smoked 480 without wraps.
