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?

    Last minute challenge to all Powerlifters not yet bald!

    Ok Troops,
    Short notice, I know, but I just became aware of this event last night. This thing is going on all over the country and looks like a good time to support a great cause. I've got my personal reasons to do so (below) but look around in your own area. Throw a buck or two in the hat if you've got it or just have a couple of drinks and support the folks who are there.

    Back when I was in jr. high school, I think it was, the family next door to us has a beautiful baby daughter. And I of course, fell in love with her as an adoptive older brother type. Then when she was only a couple of years old, she was struck with lukemia. She suffered the ravages of the disease and of the chemo-therapy. Sadly she was soon after lost to us.

    Two things I'll never forget is the sense of helplessness but more importantly I'll never forget her angelic smile which never faded. So here's my chance to do a little bit to honor that smile that has never left me and maybe make a couple of other folks smile in the process. Here's the link to the event website so you can see some details for yourself.
    Kick in a couple of bucks to a great cause if you can, and if not, just smile and hug someone you love today.

    Best to all,

    The link does not appear to be working... it said that it could not locate the "participant page".

    Tom,
    Thanks for the heads up. The event Saturday night in Vegas was an absolute blast. A lot of good folks having a good time for a great cause. I'll be doing it again next year too. Any one interested (and of course they can use contributions any time) just go to www.stbaldricks.org . If you want to get to my (or anyone else's particular page) just click on the find a participant link and enter the name.

    Best to all and thanks for the interest.

    Sorry I missed this when it was posted. I made a very small donation.

    Thanks for posting it.
    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

    There are no small donations to good cause. Thank you and to all who viewed the post, whether your circumstances permitted a monetary donation or not. Even a good thought builds the positive momentum these children deserve.

    Humbly,
