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?

    after a few quad injuries, i finally squatted over 200 for 3 sets 2 reps after going on vacation for 10 days and it wasn't that bad.

    i didn't get to lift the last 2 days because of crazy snow, but tomorrow i will hopefully get my 265x5 deadlift for 2 sets.

    Been stuck in a hotel all week. I've got dumbbells here, but no other free weights. I usually take opportunities like this to do some aerobic conditioning workouts (think Crossfit), and give myself a break from the heavy stuff.

    I came in here thinking this was going to be a food thread about TGIF the restaurant. Blah, I'll take my fat ass else where.


    Goal this week: good rest tonight for a serious bench session tomorrow

    Not a bad week.
    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

    Well at that rate you'll probably stay quite a bit leaner but your gains in weights will probably come much slower.
