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?

    They have a "workout of the day" (WoD) listed at the website (crossfit.com) - it's pretty self-explanatory if you know what the exercises are. You can always modify the workouts if necessary. Did you have more specific questions?
    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

    I'm not getting what you don't understand... If you post a WoD, maybe we could walk you through it. I think that would be the easiest thing to do.

    There are hundreds of WoDs... and you want one of them to do 3x/week? I give up - I don't think I can help you. You could try the GPP forum here, or you could go to http://www.board.crossfit.com/ No doubt someone else will be able to help you.
