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?

    GHR When?

    I want to start incorporating GHR's since I don't do them at all. My question to you is what day do you think I should do them? The days I squat or the days I dead, or both?

    We use them on both squat and dead lift days.

    Both days. Make sure you're doing them correctly as well. I see a lot of people treat them as a back hyper extension and it ends up losing a lot of it's effectiveness for your posterior chain

    Cool, thx for the input. Should I just aim for doing reps @ my bwt first? I know I am not going to be able to do many at first so I am thinking of trying to get 20 total to start and work from there no matter how many sets its takes.

    If you've never done them before, I doubt you can do 20. You're a pretty strong guy, but take it easy, haha

    Maybe do a few sets of 5-8 with bodyweight. Keep adding reps and eventually add bands or weight.

    Make sure you get the form down correctly first and foremost.

    If you do them 2x a week, I have no doubt you'll see some good carryover to your squat, and even more carryover to your pull.

    Got on the GHR sunday (as my regular gym does not have one) for the first time in a while. It completely feels like a different part of my hamstrings are sore. Great accessory work!

    Question too... Toes in, out, nuetral, or all the above?

    Got a video of the "correct" way? I do them in sets of 15-20 on my squat days... I treat them like a back extension into a leg curl sorta thing (complete full range of motion). Ive seen some guys do it strictly using the leg portion though, want to make sure i have it right
