The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    oat meal and water. Get your form down, your core is weak, try focusing on keeping your lower back tight like you would if you were about to squat or deadlift. What I try to do is just keep my abs strong, or make sure im keeping my posture perfect.

    365 Front Squat
    consistency and intensity.

    What helped me during those last sets when it really hurt was conciously pulling my knees up and keeping good running form. You get sloppy/tired by then and you lose form.

    just always make sure to keep it loose when you're resting. here some good stretches for before you start running.
