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?

    Dropped some weight lastnight

    Yesterday I was doing BB cleans and on the transition part of the rep my left grip gave out and I dropped that side. It was my last rep and I knew my grip was giving out a little...I didn't think it was giving out that much. When I feel it giving out and i think I have another rep I usually regrip for the last rep or 2. Nobody was home and I guess it is a somewhat safe exersize to lose your grip on...so it was not that big of a deal. This is the first time in a long time an accident happened to me while lifting and I think i will try to be a little more safe.

    I always wear gloves...so should I skip the gloves for cleans...it only happened onece, but every time for the last 2 reps or so I have to regrip.
