The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Weight Lifting and Basketball

    So my school just hired a new basketball coach. He seems like a cool guy and definitely is serious about getting us better. He started our first off season training practice today and he went over what we were going to do. Basically, it's a half our in the weight room doing agility and plyometric stuff then 2 hours in the gym doing various drills. I talked to him and he agreed I could continue lifting on my own for a little to gain some more strength. So anyways, I was just wondering if you guys think it would be a good idea to lift in the morning then go play basketball around six. I'm following the HCT program on a four day split Mon/Tues Thurs/Fri.

    Definitely beats not lifting at all. Just gotta do what you can with the situation, and try to stay well-rested.

    If you hit a wall, drop the HCT-12 to three days a week.

    Almost sounds like a BFS program the coach is running.
    My road to powerlifting:

    BFS is Bigger Faster Stronger, a program that revolves around 3 days of lifts with plyo in between.

    Day1: Bench/ squat/ aux
    Day2: plyo
    Day3: Deadlift/ power clean/ hexbar
    Day4: plyo
    Day 5: Towel bench/ box squat/ aux

    Reps vary each week. One week could be 3x3, then 3x5, 5x5, 5x3x1, 10x8x6 repeat.

    I wasn't a fan of this system, some people/ coaches thrive on this program. I do not.
