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?

    I did a morning workout on Saturday morning weighing a light (for me) 201.5, so I did 200 for reps. The results:

    200x20

    I guess 5 lbs BW makes a decent bit of difference. No vid, though.
    5'9" 195 lbs
    DL 600x1
    SQ 490x1 (raw)
    BP 430x1 (shirted), 320x1 (raw)
    SN 209x1 C+J 250x1

    just a little background...i joined wbb a few months ago, but havent been able to post on the regular because of law school, but with school winding down i plan to start posting ALOT more. i was trying to slow bulk over the past few months, with some success. with summer coming up i recently started my cut. will post diet, workout later.

    will be posting pics this week.
