The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Could you do it without holding onto the bar? To give your stabilizer muscles a bit more of a workout...?

    Looks... unique. :P

    Let go of that handle, and sit a box behind you. Relax your hips slightly and squat up like you would with a bar on your back.

    Its very similar to a regular squat. If your shoulders are super sore, or you have an injury, its perfect. Its a good deload tool.

    Something similar for the home gym

    That's a decent gym your taping this in. Is it at a school? I would like to try that machine out. My commercial gym only has the Hammerstrength Ground Squat - totally different. The following youtube video shows the harness and shrug bar set up that I started doing at home for a different type of leg workout.

    This takes a little getting used to. I haven't lost interest yet. Something else to do with my shrug bar.

    That's not a belt squat machine. That's just hammer strength or whomever making a knockoff

    This is a belt squat machine.

    With the cable pulling down in the middle it really works your lower back and hips much more than that HS version would

    It doesn't look that bad in principal, but in practice trying to perform a hip based movement with minimal spinal loading is always gonna be awkward. It kind of reminds me of a pull through. I'm lazy with trying new leg movements though, squats, deads, lunges and variations of those three are all I tend to perform.
