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?

    Kettleball Exercises

    cough Kettlebell cough

    Anyone that uses kettlebells, are there any really good sites that teach you how to do different exercises? (like an exrx.net for kettlebells)

    The gym I just became a trainer at actually has kettlebells (!!!) so I'm interested in learning more and possibly in the future incorporating them into the routines of some of my clients and using them myself.

    While I have your attention, we also have a Kinesis wall. Anyone know ANYTHING about those?

    Im sure Sensei will give some input.

    While you are waiting, you may want to check out his vid thread. He shows a lot of exercises with KBs and might even have a turtorial like video around somewhere.
    Complication breeds desperation.

    yeah I know Sensei has a few on the SquatRX vids and I've seen sites that have pictures describing stuff, but I really want something that has instructional videos

    (I'm a very visual person)

    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    No. There are great videos already out there and I have (compared to many) limited experience with kettlebells. If I come up with new exercises and applications, maybe, but I'm not planning on it.
