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?

    u can do events on ur squat DL day after squats if ur goin heavy and u dont have a comp comin up soon. substitute the racks for ur stones or any onther heavy low back movement.

    if u dont have a comp soon, then back off the events a little bit if ur main focus is the squat.

    Sam, you never train in your gear? Even before a meet?

    no, i take a max 4 weeks out on squat and DL and 3 weeks out on bench. thats the extent of my gear training. so with 2 meets a year and maybe one other max test day during the year, thats 5 times in my gear for the year.

    i dont use knee wraps and rarely use a belt either

    Thanks again Sam... and thanks for the gear info - maybe you and Travis should start a new thread on that... it may get buried in this one... and a lot of the geared PL'ers may find it quite useful..

    So will you try to break your raw squat in the cage at the Arnold? Or just do reps with something light - like 650?? lol

    I think my next question is going to be on your cutting expertise... I've heard you've cut over 25 lbs in just a few days before a meet?

    haha I know my bench stuff pretty well, but Sam would be the one on all other gear, especially squatting

    Anyone that can take gear once before a meet and crank out the numbers he does deserves a round of applause

    i havent decided yet. they have me and brian weston for a squat off for now, but i have not talked to him. i proposed a fred hatfield style squat off with House, a pro BB with some giant legs, the way platz and hatfield did.

    bu i may just squat raw or with just knee wraps just to see where im at.
