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?

    Have decided on what kind of programming you're going to follow?

    You absolutely need to have some kind of programming in order to make any kind of significant progress. I'm interested in that question as well, St.

Start kicking ass, and take out the crap that doesnít matter. Start doing and believing in the stuff that works, and do it today and forever. You want science and studies? **** you.

    At the moment i'm looking at 5/3/1 and Shieko but have yet to decide
    last few months i've been pretty much going by feel
    for accessory work i'd increase reps,sets and/or weight and when it starts to stall or if i reach a point where my joints ache, i'd change the movement

    For the bench press, i do 5x5 with the weights gradually increasing each week
    its starting to put a strain on my shoulders, even after a deload, so i switched to a closer grip for now

    Shieko can take a long time, 2+ hrs per session in some cases. Wendler's is also a great program and can be customized extensively. How long have you been training consistently?

    Been training consistently since 2002 but i started out being coached on how things like "10-15 reps" was meant for cutting and "6-10" were size and strength etc etc etc
    took me sometime to break out of that mindset
    i started a westside routine in 2008
