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?

    Dude, I don't think I can pull 320 x 8 and I pull well over 400 for a 1RM. I wouldn't rely too much on those calculators.

    Dude, you're a beast! 320x8 is very impressive. I don't know why you changed your PR's in your sig, this program is suppose to smash those 1RMs! Keep at it, bud.

    On paper, sure, but it hasn't been tested. You should keep your 1RMs in there but do what you want, it's your sig.

    Good to see some training videos in here. Keep 'em coming. Detard would love to see more of you in action. Form looks pretty decent, I must say. One thing you could do to avoid any possible injuries, is bring the bar back down like you brought it up. Keep your form and tightness the same throughout the whole lift. On your way down, you seem to just break at the hips and let gravity do its work which will probably cause you to lose some tightness in your back. Make sense?

    makes absolute sense. i just guess i thought it would waste energy, but now instead it takes energy to prevent injury which is great. ill give vids whenever possible, but its usually only gonna be one a day a week if anything. whats this about dan?

    thanks keith.

    320x8 is brutal. I hate high rep deads....
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw
