The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Home gym flooring

    So far my preparations for a home gym are coming along and the last step (before actually buying the equipment) is to rip out the 25 year old carpeting (its nasty) and put in a new one. But while I'm at it I;ve been thinking of putting in some of that rubber fitness flooring. The kind you find in gyms and whatnot. Any idea where I can find a place that sells this stuff in Edmonton, Alberta?

    I got rubber mats from Lowe's. It's $20 USD for 3'x3' and it took 6 of them to cover the area I needed

    Of course I doubt they have Lowe's in Canada. Look at a big hardware/home improvement store.

    I'd avoid ordering online if possible because shipping can get expensinve on something like that because of the weight.

    Actually, Lowe's is starting to open up stores in Canada. I don't think any are open yet, but they are coming...

    Couple of questions:
    What's the subfloor like? Is the room on a concrete slab or on a wooden crawl space.

    On concrete, you're golden, just put down the rubber.

    On a crawl space, depending on what you plan on doing there, you might want to put some extra plywood down. At least in an area where you could potentially drop something. 200+ pounds dropped from a height of 3 feet (about the height of a deadlift if the bar slipped out of your hands at the top) could do some damage to a floor.
