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?

    515 would be nuts, so would you bein 181 at the meet. When i saw the "181" I immedietelly thought, "crap but isnt Don 181?" and then remembered when I lost all respect for him when he said, "dont deadlifts make your bench go down?", so odds are he wouldnt do a full meet anyway.

    Don wouldn't travel that far anyway. I doubt he even squats. I also lost all respect for him when I saw him attempt a 500 DL after he couldn't even budge 455 off the floor.

    Frikkin CT liquor laws piss me off.
    Kid at Stop & Shop: I'm sorry, I can't sell you beer.
    Me: It's 8:45 dude.
    Kid: Yeah, but they made the announcement, it's 9.
    Me: It is EIGHT FORTY FIVE!
    Kid: *looking scared*
    Me: Look dude, where's your manager.
    Kid: JUDY!!!!!!
    Me (3 mins later): *walking out with my beer in hand*

    I hate this state.

    Weak days piss me off, and make me work that much harder. So you're right Coke.

    5 wheels... OWNED!

    Box Squat: 10xBW 5x45 3x135 3x225 3x275 3x315 1x365 1x405 1x455 MISSx495 1x495 BOY!
    Rack Pull: (3rd pin) 5x315 3x405 3x405 (All paused between reps).

    All singles done with the belt. Only used wraps on the 495 attempts. Considered calling it a day after missing the 495. I totally missed the groove on the way down and barely came off the box the first time. As I was pulling plates off I began to entertain the idea of trying again. My legs still felt good and I figured with a long breather I could hit it. I reloaded the bar, waited about 10 minutes. Chalked up good, wrapped up tight, belt to the 4th notch (I usually use the 2nd or 3rd), cracked a cap and gave it two long pulls before I got under the bar. Unracked, walked it out, tightened up, hit the box and F***ING BLEW. IT. UP. 6 plates coming sooooon.


    Smoke rock? Nah son, I smoke weights.
