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?

    Watched it.

    Glen Ross - Isn't he that totally unfit lard arse?

    His weight helped him do the squat and deadlift events in the past but besides that he's far too fat and unfit to do the other endurance events. Get's out of breath and tired far quicker than the other competitors who actually do some form of cardio.
    I'm not moaning, i'm having an opinion.

    The strong man is some program to watch. Kinda amazing how they shift so much weight around.

    What happended to the Scottish bloke. I probably didnt see his name because it was right at the bottom of the scoreboard lol.

    Gyno Rhino: Dude, you have two posts. Don't start your WBB career by making ad-whore posts.


    Point taken - I wasn't trying to troll these forums, just thought I might be doing somone a favour by pointing them to something they could find usefull (and free).

    It may well of been, but here's the results from Saturdays North East Qualifier:

    Under 70kg - Paul Howarth
    Under 80kg - Adrian Birchall
    2nd - Derek Hastie (fantastic quads, remember him as a junior)
    3rd - Colin Hinder
    Under 90kg - Darren Nicklehurst (last competed as a junior in 2000 in the Nabba Britain, came 4th that year, freaky, freaky legs)
    2nd - Bruce McCall (very close call for Bruce who looked much better than last year)
    Over 90kg - CHRIS WALL (19 and a half stone ripped)
    2nd - Paul Megwa ( Could have won, many thought he should have, looked great)
    3rd - Andrew Glynn (no tan, not much condition, looked like he didn't want to be there, lots of potential wasted unless he get's his ass into nick)

    Over 57kg womens - Kelly Bruce
    2nd - Julie Waite
    3rd - Sharon Rose

    Juniors - Liam Armstrong
    2nd - Chris Johnson
    3rd - Jason Walden
    4th - Michael Kennedy

    1st timers - Gustavo Diaz
    2nd - Gareth Vaughan
    3rd - Gary Carter
    4th - Paul Slowey

    Intermediates - Darren Irwin
    2nd - Michael Bell

    Masters - Andy Baty
    2nd - George West
    3rd - Mary Brown


    It was cool that Eddy came, because he brought all his atlas stones, logs etc.. and in the the interval there was a comp for stone lifts and log lifts, was pretty cool. And boy Eddy is one big guy, looked massive even though he no longer Bodybuilds.

    Hows your training going fella?

    Glenn Ross hasn't retired for those of you asking. He's competing in the World Strongman Cup in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada on Dec.11th. My training partner, Beerd Beekman is also competing... I'll be there to watch and maybe volunteer if they still need some extra hands. Just some info for you that were curious.

    Ah, so it was just a regional qualifier? I see. Musta got my wires crossed.

    Andy Baty's the one who trains at my gym. Chris Wall has done before, too. He's an absolute beast.

    Yeah, sorry fella just a qualifier. Pretty cool that Andy Baty trains at your gym, good for motivation?

    Chris Wall was immense 19.5 stone on stage!, its was unreal! His back blew away all other competitors, but his waist is a little too wide and throws off his symmetry. Paul Megwa who also trains in Newcastle looked awsome and his posing routine was quality
