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?

    Challenge: Body Weight Incline Press

    Thought i'd add to the challenges. I found swapping to Incline press to be an eye opener for me. I was massivly weak at incline, while i was very strong at flat bench.

    My best previously @ a body weight of 190lbs was 11 reps

    I maxed out at 405 at a bodyweight of 260
    Best numbers were 315x8. I took a while off incline and im working my way back finally hitting 380 again.

    My Incline is pretty much the same as my Flat. I only really use Dumbells for Incline so i dont know for sure. I rep 110 lb DB's for 3 sets of 6-7 reps on Incline.

    Man, I don't know if I've ever done incline barbell bench press.
    I've only ever used dumbells.

    incline bench is awsome, cant arch your back so much so you have a lot of ROM.

    I likle the bench and dead challenges, but this is a bit of overkill imo.

    Pre shoulder injury I did 97.2KG * 2 at body weight of 75KG(165lb).

    My finall rep out set was a set of 10 on 80KG(176lb @ 165lb's). (Bar touching chest of course).

    Not sure how many I could have got on bodyweight though as my main set.

    Where's the deadlift challenge?

    All I've seen prior to this thread are the "bodyweight bench" and "225 squat" challenges. Someone please shoot me a link so I can check out the details.

    Thanks!
