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?

    Axle bar clean & jerk .

    hi everyone ,
    an English friend of mine suggested that I make an axle bar from 2 car wheels. He also mentioned that I would be able to lift much less than on a regular bar .How right he was !The "bar" is 2'' in diameter and it is non-revolving .I loaded it to 100 kilos and lifted it overhead 3 times .My grip and forearms suffered in the clean and while resting on my neck it was pressing hard on me.
    Happy agony !

    haha class, gotta love those A-team style workouts, looks like woodwork paid off too, are those weights racks built from wood?

    Are you sure its 100kg? 220 lbs on a awkward bar for 3 reps is impressive!

    That looks like a nice setup, even the surrounding weights, looks like a good enviornment to lift.
