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?

    I think a better analogy is the PGA tour banning the use of some new clubs because of the increased length that the club hits. That's not saying some of the drivers these guys are using aren't well designed and hit far, but the PGA tour has set the line. I'm not against gear, but when a shirt is so tight that someone trying to bench 800 pounds can't get the bar down to their chest there's obviously something wrong with that.

    Yep, he obviously isn't benching enough weight.

    Didn't you just ask people to stop and apologize for being off-topic? I guess if you want the flaming to continue, feel free to continue replying.
    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
