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?

    What do you guys think of vertical jump training programs? I just started one

    Hey guys. Im looking to increase my vertical (currently 62cm, want to hit at least 80cm in 6 months)

    I was looking on the internet for a system and I found one, its in my signature. the website is, i have been doing it for 2 weeks. the first week i saw a gain of 5cm's but now im plateau'ing... i got 0cm in the 2nd week.

    does anyone with some experience know how long this kindof thing takes? whats the best way of doing it? the book gave me a system involving squats, dl's and plyo's. i picked the one that was suited to my strength level (it has a bunch)

    do i eat for mass or strength?

    These questions you have should be addressed in your program. If they're not, well... I hope you didn't pay a lot for 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

    i can attest to kelly baggett being, more or less, a ****ing genius. the VJB upped my vert 7 inches in about 4 months of work (spread out over ~2 years). really, i barely used the damn thing because i was always busy playing sports / i didn't want to stop lifting heavy for extended periods of time, and it still gave me huge results. i can only imagine what might happen if you followed his program to the letter for a year or more.

    i also just bought his No Bulls Speed Development Manual a few weeks ago. the information in there is grade-A stuff and i'm really excited to put it to the test over the next few months.
