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?

    Couple questions; a couple things to say..

    When i look around, i see alot of you people and your incredible lifts. Let me tell you a low squat number can be extremely discouraging. To think that people can squat 300+ lbs more than me regularly or some even 500 lbs i start to realize just how much more weight and strength i need to gain. It seems like a so far out goal, so impossible to reach high numbers. I love squating, but when im busting my butt off trying to squat 185 which is just to parallel, 155 ATF i just want to quit. I hate training legs just because mine suck. And now im starting to do ATF only because its better for you, so i just dropped 30lbs which makes me feel even worse. You people amaze me, and inspire me but im stuck at what to do.
    What if i did a 5 day routine, squated each day. and thats it. only squat, nothing else at all. would it help? i want to up these numbers. i eat a ton, i scarf down food at any chance. im at a loss.

    but with this being said, if i cant squat 5 days a week then what about this?
    Upper/Lower- using 7 exercises i chose.

    Upper- bench, dips, OH press, bent rows, chinups
    Lower- ATF squats, deadlift
    day off
    upper-bench, dips, OH press, bent rows, chinups
    lower-ATF squats, deadlift
    day off
    day off

    i want to see my squat fly, followed by deadlift. i want big numbers, one because it feels good, two because its good for you.

    any coments appreciated...

    I would squat 2-3 times per week if I were you and just stick with it. It won't happen overnight. A lot of people here have been lifting for years and years. Just try and put another 5 lbs on the bar whenever you can.

    Try the madcow version of Bill Starrs 5x5.

    Squatting 3 times in 5 days. Its killer.
    The average is the borderline that keeps mere men in their place. Those who step over the line are heroes by the very
