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?

    Short Friday Workout (in highschool weight training class)

    I am on Rippetoes starting strength. I'm in a weight training class at my highschool (monday, wed, fri). I have enough time on monday's and wednesday's, but not on fridays (periods are shorter on Friday's). No way to get more than 6-7 sets done on friday. What are some things that I can do to get a good workout on Friday in 25minutes? I was thinking of something with KettleBells, or maybe a tire (there's a 300 pound tire in our weightroom). What do you reccomend?

    I work out on my lunch break and sometimes I don't have more than 25 minutes or so, so I do the superset thing. I do one set, pretty much to failure, of every lift and do ~10 lifts with no rest in between. Works for me.
