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?

    tight wrap question

    Now i've always wrapped myself and wrapped what i felt was comfortable my whole career but I've never done it nor squatted around other competitive lifters in any setting that I can remember. They gave me a few pointers...one of them being that I should squeeze my traps hard and THAT is what they mean by keeping my upper back tight. I was more focused on retracting my scapula and squeezing THEM hard instead of my traps.

    The other thing pointed out was how I wrapped. They said the fact that I could damn near do a full squat in knee wraps says i didn't wrap hard enough and that it would make a huge difference. Does it really make that big of a difference between being able to flex your leg in wraps and not? Am I not getting as much as I could out of the wraps?

    Also, how much of the last wrap do you cover with the next one? half way or just enough? I didn't know if you should see skin when you squat or not between the wraps?
