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?

    G.P.P training

    Just was wonderin what everyone here(powerlifter) did for their G.P.P training. besides stuff like sled pulling, and farmers' walks what other things do you do for this. I was thinking about loading up about 120lbs and going on a hike on some trails. Where can you buy sleds at. How many times a week can you train this without overtraining, I already have a pretty hard workout split so it would be pretty hard to do more than once a week.

    Also what are ammonia caps supposed to do?

    You can easily make your own sled out of a peice of sheet metal or wood or just a tire to drag around. I used to drag around 2 25lbs weights. Start off once or twice a week doing GPP work until you feel you can handle it really well
    Ammonia caps sorta clear your mind i think, just a really strong smell.

    I used to do GPP but then it snowed in the winter and i didn't want to risk slipping on the road to drag stuff
    You could do medicine ball throws for upper body or just find a 25lb rock and throw that in the air over and over again. Right now i just do recovery workouts with the bands because they seem to help alot and there easy to do.

    Yea, right now I'm just doing recovery workouts also, unless you count my Saturday Events as GPP.

    I see, hmm, now ive got an idea, if i box on days i dont lift, and use weighted training clothes, would that be considered GPP or is it too fast of a movement? If I did slow punches would that be better?

    Did the "non-specific" part miss you?

    what does non specific mean? Doesn't it mean not any body part in particular?
