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?

    My sprinting training for rugby/decathlon

    THIS IS HOW MY WEEK LOOKS:
    MONDAY: Lifting
    TUESDAY: Rugby training
    WEDNESDAY: Lifting
    THURSDAY: Rugby
    FRIDAY: Lifting
    SATURDAY: Rest
    SUNDAY: Nothing - but I wanted to put a day of sprint work in:

    2x5 pressups-to-sprints (15m)
    3x5 flying 20s
    5x30m flat out
    5x60m flat out


    I'm currently one of the fastest forwards on my rugby team, but I feel like running a 14.65s 100m still isn't quite good enough. And there's never any harm in getting faster if your looking for a try oppurtunity.

    I'm also one of the few forwards who can sidestep and line-break, so if I could accelerate better after being able to break the lines, it could be a 5 or possibly 3 pointer for my team.

    So is that OK to do one day a week?
    AGE: 14

    do a 1 arm pull up on each arm
    1 3/4 rudi ball out on a trampoline

    Your 14 years old? If so focus on getting stronger and increasing your work capacity. Do you play any other sports either competitive or recreational?

    I'd spend more time focusing on improving your lifting program and use that extra day for rest.

    You're doing a LOT of work already for a 14 yo. I'd just give yourself a bit more time to develop

    Well, rugby is really the only one. Maybe basketball at school.

    My only suggestions would be to make sure you are eating a lot to ensure you are not starving yourself unknowingly and make sure you get plenty of rest.

    Other than that I really can't make any more suggestions without knowing what you are doing for lifting.
