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?

    Well, I weighed myself in at 133. I did it at 135. I got 6 reps. That's a couple more than I expected. That was my max a month ago, so, ya.

    How much longer is there? I'm positive I can have it up to 10 in two weeks. Most likely more. My bench has been growing really fast.

    Wow. This contest is OLD. I might just give it a go again, though. I'm now down to 201-202 lbs so I'll see how many I can do with 200. I should be good for 20 at a minimum (I've done 12 with 225 - strict, full lockout each rep with pause).

    eh.. second heavy bench workout in 8 months.. My bodyweight, 257.8.. bench workout 275x7..

    wow thats ****ing ridiculous.. I shouldn't even post it. When I was 235 I was hitting 315x10 and warming up with 225x20.. I'll re-post in about 4 months since I'll be back in the groove by then..

    ...It's really a shame I can't bench my bodyweight.

    haha be careful Damian, we don't want you injured again! You could probably get 50+ reps with your bw!
