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?

    Metal Pro Deadlifter

    Hey all,

    So I got my new suit today. Keep in mind I have used a deadlift suit before. It is size 50, I tried it on and didn;t get it close to fitting. I am about 5'11, 204. Any ways to break it in. Just go up a size?? What do you think?

    My next comp is in almost 1 month. I want to get a few sessions before. Otherwise I will use my old suit.

    I'm 6'4, 285 lbs and wear a size 54 and could probably squeeze into a 52. Quads are 28.5 - 29. What exactly isnt fitting?

    Kepp pulling the legs on, it will fit. Or you can stretch the leg openings with a basketball.

    Knowing you're going to compete this weekend and you weigh 244 I just want to wish you good luck on your cut. And kick ass on the platform!
