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?

    Questions about Westside

    Okay, so from reading this, it seems that when using the conjugate method you have a main movement that is either DE or ME, a heavy (but non-maximal) supplementary movement that targets the prime movers, and two or three RE movements that work secondary/stabilizer muscles with higher reps.

    So putting this together, for example, on a ME day I might get something like this:

    ME Squat 1-3RM
    Good Morning 3x3-5 (This would be the supplemental lift)
    Glute Ham Raise 3x10-12 (RE lift)
    Pull-Through 3x12-15 (another RE lift)

    Now, if instead of doing a ME Squat I did a ME Good Morning or Deadlift that day, what would I want my main assistance move to be? SLDL? Some kind of squat instead?

    My other question, is I see a lot of people saying stuff like "vary your grip on the DE bench and your depth on the DE squat)", but if I did that, wouldn't I need to use seperate weights for each form? For example, 50% of my wide grip bench is closer to 65 or even 75% of my close grip bench.

    When changing grips on the bench yes you'll use different weights. The weights you'll be able to do closer grip or higher squat should be different.

    If I do ME deadlift i'll usually supplemet with rackpulls or platform deads or front squats. It's really up to you though
