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?

    Does this squat cage look safe?

    Hi guys, was thinking of getting this package off ebay as getting to the gym is going to be a lot harder for me this year.

    Looks like a pretty decent value package, but noticed that the cage was rated to 160kg. Just wondering if this is going to be safe to use? I'm not even squatting 100kg, so figured that it'd be more than enough for me to use for a year or two.

    Any thoughts? thanks in advance.

    My other thought was to grab the stuff from other sellers seperately, which seems to come out cheaper. eg:

    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....3844&rd=1&rd=1
    http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....8521&rd=1&rd=1

    thanks for any replies.

    Too expensive, and getting one that you'd have to replace in a year isn't a good move.

    yep. get something that will last. a decent power rack should last you for as long as you can use it.

    i haven't seen any cheaper cages than the seperate one i posted.

    as for buying a better one, at the moment i can't really afford to. in a few years, i'll be graduated and working, so will be able to afford one then.

    either way, the i'm guessing i can get the whole setup for around $500AUD delivered. my gym membership would come to $520 for the year, so i figure if the cage lasts me for even a year, it's worth it.

    It won't be worth it when you go to sell it a year from now and you can't get anything for it-then you're going to spend another 500 dollars. http://www.newyorkbarbells.com/powerracks.html

    Rated to 350lbs...that is nothing. Good ones go all the way up to 1000 lbs.

    I don't know what you lift and if it would matter to you, but I wouldn't want to be under any weight on that thing.

    spend the money on learning how to weld, and then build your own
