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?

    Critique my squat and bent BB Rows

    first, this is my normal stance... A wide stance parallel squat
    only did 3 bc it was the end of my workout and i didnt want to overdo it. Plus these kill my hip flexors, which is why im doing these for the time being . . .

    Full squats - 235 x 3
    notice how far my knee goes in front of my toes. I just cant get full depth without doing this, I feel like i'm going to topple over if my shins stay perpindicular to floor. What is your opinion of this?

    BB Row pendlay style
    205 x 4 reps

    critique me please make me a better lifter

    My only comment is for the video of the full squats. It appears that your butt winks very slightly towards the bottom of your squat, which would indicate that you have a flexibility issue...possibly in the hamstring or hip area. I would reduce the ROM slightly and address your flexibility until you can properly and safely go all the way down, otherwise you could create a more severe problem down the road.
