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?

    elite lifter?

    What exactly constitutes an elite lifter, is it a total of weight on 3 exercises at a certain bodyweight?

    I have searched, and got loads of references to elite and lifting but no clear definition

    I'm not sure if it's just an IPF standard, or if every federation has their own.

    Here is a link to the candian powerlifting site with the different classes.

    The CPU is under the IPF so I believe it would be the same.

    If do right, no can defense. -- Mr. Miyagi

    Each federation has their own. IPF/CPU/USAPL are all the same, i think.

    IPA is higher, as is APF.
    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
    "You're wrong, and I have a completely irrelevant pubmed abstract that may or may not say so." - Belial
    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    Yeah it is, those totals are in kilograms if that's what is throwing you off. So multiply those numbers by 2.2 to get a pretty good translation to pounds.

    Blah, you edited your post, so I guess you figured it out.

    Most guys will never reach elite. Most guys won't reach class I or even II. But it's a good thing to just keep trying to improve and move up the classes and see where you end up.
