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 was ridiculously easy! Did you try and go up from that or leave it and go to the 3-boards?

    My training partners refused to let me take another set. I have not missed an ME lift in over 6 weeks. They want me to keep everything positive. I did tell them next month if I get 545 I want to take a crack at 575. They gave me the ok!

    Too bad I fell upon completing a farmers walk with 205 in each hand today and banged up my wrist badly. I'm icing as we speak. I should have broken my fall with my face. I don't bench with my face. DAMNIT!

    Very powerful lift. Good work and hopefully the wrist heals fast.

    thats what i am talking about no ****ty bench shirt
    I believe that when the body is strong, the mind thinks strong thoughts. Time spent away from the Iron makes my mind degenerate. I wallow in a thick depression. My body shuts down my mind.

    Although everybody's got an opinion about bench shirts, if it's an uninformed and negative one, you should keep it to yourself.

    Thanks for the compliment, however, I wear a shirt also. There is room for everyone in this sport.

    I deleted your post in the other thread. Please do some reading and learn a bit about what you are talking about before trying to bash others(especially those who most likely train much harder than yourself and have done so for much longer).

    That made my rotator cuffs cry.


    Stupid injured RCs.


    Awesome lift. Ignore the ignorant shirt comments. There's one or more on every lifting forum.
    Credulous at best

    But pull your head on out of your hippie haze
    And give a listen

    Thx Justin. Awesome Tool quote. Undoubtedly the greatest lifting music ever! Southside is where the three ring circus sideshow of freaks are, but I don't need a vacation from it.

    ****ing great lift man. Keep them coming. I am still amazed at how explosive your heavy lifts are. You think that's the DE work?

    Vincent is very explosive off the chest, even before he did Dynamic Work. He has crazy shoulder strength and a huge back to press from. His weakness is actually his lockout. He is so explosive that he used to press and catch the weight at lockout. He's corrected that problem and can be crazy explosive and grind out a lift if he needs to.
