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?

    You could...

    1) tie a rope around your waist
    2) put on a weight belt and tie the rope around the weight belt
    3) build a harness out of the rope (use google to find out how)

    There are other options (real harness, weight vest, etc), but the above 3 are probably the cheapest.

    I was going to make my own sled, then after I figured it all out, decided it was still cheaper to just buy one. I bought the sled from elitefts and I just put the straps through a weight belt.

    Anthony's Sandbag Recipe
    100lbs of sand
    2 burlap bags from your local "feeds and needs" store
    1 roll of duct tape
    Directions: pour 50lbs of sand into plastic grocery bag, tie top. Place another grocery bag over this and tie. Repeat 4-5 times. Cut burlap bag so you can wrap the plastic sand bag twice. Duct tape the hell out of it, make sure corners are well taped. Repeat process for a 30lbs bag and 20lbs bag. Total cost: about $8 for sand and a roll of duct tape. They'll give you the burlap bags.

    Anthony's Sled Recipe
    1 Rope
    1 Old Tire
    2 Pieces of 2x6 wood, length to fit within tire (this creates a shelf to place sandbags)
    Directions: Place wood in tire. Tie rope around wood. Place sandbags on wood. Tie rope around waist. Pull. Total cost: maybe $5 for the rope and wood. Get an old tire from a local garage, it saves them a disposal fee.
