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?

    Nice bench workout, bro. Artwork is lookin good. You do all your shading with pencil or what? I used to draw way too much when I was younger; all through High School. Used to love it. Got all into the anatomy of humans and ****, bought several books on it. Good stuff. Hands were by far the hardest thing for me to draw right. Arms and eyes were my best. Being into weightlifting probably helps a lot with understanding the dynamics and physiology of underlying muscles I'm sure. Stick with it, bro. Oh, and I didn't realize that was Tyrael from D2 until someone pointed it out...totally forgot about that guy. Closing scene of that game where he owns the world-stone is just bad-ass, even if the graphics aren't that great.

    I was thinking today, what happened to the old days where we used to give each other all this love and support and only talk training??? It was so motivational. Who brought all this hate and sarcasm?!

    Some of the trash talking is motivational. But at the same time I do think it gets a little stupid and over-the-top.

    bench : 135 warmup, 225x10.5, 225x7.5, 225x6... damn! just warmed up a tinge w/ 135 and then smoked 225.

    push press : 135x5, 155 2x5

    DB OH tri ext - 60 x15, x15

    disappointed wit the team wokrouts today... just walked through stunts and stuff and did some get-offs. then watched the skills play 7 on 7 for tourny this saturday... i played some slot/tight end for a few plays. was fun.

    I concur.


    Jed, you BEASTLY man, you! That's some sick pressing, dude. Oh and let me tell you, if you can rep 225, you can press 100's for sure. If you can't, you probably are having issues with the setup. When was the last time you used DB's? IMO, they are better for mass then barbell pressing. Atta boy, Jeddi boy!

    bako - lol wats ur record again? yes that is a good thing. just sayin sometimes it goes haywire.

    coke - thanks a million bro.

    dirk - haha thanks mate. youll be there soon!

    lion - yeah i would say my form is more PL than anything. not a perfect PL form though im sure. thanks dude!

    borracho - lol thanks guy. idk i guess i could prob DB press 100's but no way would i be able to swing em up to my chest hah!

    killx - hehe thanks man!

    keith - woaza a compliment thanks friend. i use DB's for DB press maybe once a week, but our DB's stop at 60. i just figure because i can only rep 60's for about 3x10 struggling on the last set, then i couldnt go too far with 100's...
