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?

    Body Carries, strange/unusual yet highly rewarding.

    Yesterday me and a buddy of mine decided to tack an extra lift onto our field PT session, which included agility drills up a three flight staircase, 10 sets of sprints, six 1/2 mile runs (between sprints/stairs) and bodyweight squats for tabata style intervals. At the end of the day we had some gas in the tank so we tried a drill that he will be having to do once he starts his indoc. for the airforce PJ's program called body carries.

    It's normally done in a group. One person is used as a dummy, and hoisted up on the shoulders. The carrier carries the dummy 50 meters, sets dummy down, sprints back to start, pick up other dummy, and repeats. I did this yesterday, and today I feel like I had a fight yesterday... whole body feels bruised up, but in a good way. I highly recommend trying this exercise if your goals include whole body strength and endurance + balance.

    i've seen similar type drills, and yes excellent killer workout.
    tho no real good way to replicate the feel or difficulty without a live person dummy. best thing i guess is long body bag packed with sand & gravel.
