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?

    Olympic Lifting and function strength help please

    Hi,

    I'm starting olympic lifting soon to help me with my martial arts. I'm going to be learning the simple olifts such as the power clean, clean, power snatch and overhead squat. What other exercises should I do to help build functional strength. I was thinking about adding some bodyweight calinstenics and maybe deadlifts or something. For bodyweight exercises I could do stuff like pushups, 1 arm pushups, chins and pullups, hindu squats and other stuff. Would this help build functional strength? Thanks to anyone who can help.

    I think it will build more useable strength than conventional bb routines.

    Look at O'lifter's who can clean and jerk like three times their weight.

    Deadlifts for sure to go with what you outlined.
