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?

    I do the Boring But Big for the squat and deadlift days.
    I do the Triumvirate for the press and bench days.
    I also do sled pulls the day after squats and deadlifts.

    Basically that depends on you and your own personal weaknesses and your situation as a powerlifter(ex do u compete in all 3 events or just push/pull). If your just a bench/puller then i would incorporate more back and shoulders into your routine since they help both your lifts. ,etc. Hope this helps.

    I second this. Boring but Big for lower body is pretty awesome. I do Triumvirate with adding some exercises that cater to my specific needs. I dont do conditiong as of yet but i really should.

    You can do whatever exercises you want. Just a note on the Boring but Big for deadlifts, i havent been able to properly walk since Wednesday. Go light if its your first time .

    From his book:
    Assistance exercises accomplish four main tasks. In no particular order, they:
    • Strengthen weak areas of the body.
    • Compliment and help increase the four basic lifts.
    • Provide balance and symmetry to your body and your training.
    • Build muscle mass.

    Did you memorize the whole book?
    I had to go back to the book to remember the word Triumvirate
