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?

    That's crazy about the DUI, dude. As you are aware, you don't have to be driving to get one. If you are drunk and in the drivers seat, even if the car is off and parked, it's over.

    Anyhow, glad you dodged that. Now, what the **** is up with that bench? 225x13, are you kidding me? ****ing kicked the door of the hinges with that one bro. Solid as hell.

    Yeeeeeah, thanks guys. It almost killed me though, I didn't have a spotter. The only reason I got the 13th one up is because I really didn't want to die haha.

    LOL atta boy. 13 is nuts, dude. Why don't you ever try anything heavy for a single, double or triple? Get some real weight in your hands with that strength.

    You deadlift? 13 reps on a bench? man I might could do 155 for 13. I smell crossfit in here. Im pretty sure as long as the keys arent in the ignition you can be in the driver seat and be fine. I was told its safe to take the keys out and go to sleep if you needed to and it wouldnt get you in trouble (assuming your not parked somewhere you shouldnt be... or underage...*cough*BAKO*cough*)
    Oly Lifting + Some PL

    #'s will be up when I know them

    Thanks Indy.

    Keys were in the ignition. The main thing they had on me was in the police report it said the cop/dick had asked me how much I had had to drink prior to driving to where I was parked and I said "a lot". Even though I doubt he said "prior to driving" and if he did that shows you how wasted I was.

    275 x too scared to attempt without a spotter haha. having the thought that you will probably die if something goes wrong in the back of your head kinda throws you off a little.

    lol, too scared for 275 last time now you hit it twice. you peice of crap. i think bench + deads and various squat movements like oly squat hack squat front squat full cleans etc suffice for squats. but im bad.
