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?

    PL potential

    Hi Guys,

    I'm relatively new to PLing <6months and I've been trying to build up my maxes using a few diff techniques. My lifts are:

    Box squat 110kg
    Close grip bench 90kg
    Deadlift 120kg

    I way approx 80kg. I know I've seen some stats of psychos like Phil Harrington and also the PL org website with comp results, but I bust my ass off trying to get those maxes..

    I'm joining a PLing club at my uni this semester and there are some pretty big lifters there (world competitors) and just wondering what I could expect to gain in approx 6 months? Given I have had no formal PL training before..
