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?

    I see, good job that would be kind of hard to do, I dont know if i could do 90 right now but i would like to get up to at least 100 over bw, I suck at reps, would be lucky to do 15.

    Nice job everyone.. this new challenge seems to have brought a number of new folks out of the woodwork... should be fun.

    and there seem to be a lot of strong pullers...
    Any chance we can add age to the spreadsheet.. maybe I have a shot for the masters LOL ... b/c all you teen, 20's and 30's are knocking on some serious weights with 100lbs over BW. Awesome job guys..

    You can't see anything in that video. Also, the bar is cut off so you can't tell if your chin actually goes over it or touches it.

    I'm going to try this challenge first thing in the gym tonight. I think I'd have a shot at BW+90 or 100.

    LOL. From that video, I can conclusively tell you that there was a shooter on the grassy knoll.

    And that both Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster exist.

    And UFOs.

    Don't ask for a lighter load. Ask for a stronger back.

    Couldnt resist.
    I normally only do pullups not chins but their is little difference reguardless of grip in strength.
    45lb smoked
    90lb smoked
    125lb good pull-started to strain and feel my rear delt pull. thats it for me.
    BW 236
    125+236=361

    If this contest goes on long enough for my shoulder to heal I will give it another shot.
    Lot of strong pullers on here indeed. great job guys!

    Good job man! have fun with it!

    well ill keep it as it is for now. Until we get lots more people posting their numbers up. I can always sort them into age groups later on down the line. But if everyone cud post their age from now on when posting that wud be nice.

    Im rele pleased with how many people are trying this out. Gonna have an awesome league table going!

    well then you should be happy i posted a video at all. =) hahaha this was my first time recording anything digitally and posting it on the web. I glanced at the viewfinder and thought i saw the bar, but it was actually the reflection in the mirror. Next time i won't post a video and y'all just going to have to accept my number as i had posted.

    Hey goodwinn, can you enter skinny me ?

    BW 140 + 70 lbs. = 150%

    I did 70 lbs. x 1 no video. <--- this was full ROM though.

    I did 120 lbs. for 1/2 the ROM...I was over-confident. (Ripped my t-**** too LOL!) - Recorded

    I did 100 lbs. but I was like 4-5 inches short of getting my chin over the bar. - Recorded maybe if I didn't attempt 120 lbs. I *may* have got it.

    Once u get that BW + 100lb chinup, you'll be right up there in the rankings!! you'll be 2nd in the percentages to be accurate (as of right now)
