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?

    Competing in 100% RAW federation

    Anyone here ever compete in the 100% RAW Federation?
    Or is anyone thinking about competing in it?

    If so, how did you like their event?
    Which event did/will you do?

    Also, if anyone has done a RAW and a equiped competitions... what do you use for your opening weights? Any different % then your equipment competitions?

    I've thought about competing in it. I probably will if there is a meet near me sometime in the next year. For opening weights, a good rule fo thumb is to do something you can do for 3 reps as your opener, then go up from there based on feel.

    Yep. I had thought about going to that one in Elgin, but it was a bit too close to my last meet (which was a tad dissapointing for me). I'd really like to try one next year, though, if possible.

    I'll be there Kev.. I hope to meet up with you.. I think you should smoke your weight & age group..

    I've convinced my 43 yr old door neighbor to come.. he did a lot of powerlifting in the early 80s.. to compete at 148 or 160.. and I've been with him doing 405 sq & DL in the gym.. but only a 240 BP b/c of his screwed up elbow.

    So you little guys are going to smoke me.. oh well, I'm a newbie..

    Now we just have to convince Drew to come up..

    if i could stay in the 198 class

    of course, my body type is not that of a powerlfiter
    the fear of losing removes the desire to win
