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?

    Ropes Gone Wild

    Any of you ever try the workout above. I bought me a 45' piece of 1.5" Manila rope and just did 20 minutes of it and 15 minutes of Sled pushes. I then visited the vomit bucket. 30 minurtes later I'm still sweating and my pulse is in the low 100's. great GPP workout.

    There are a lot of ropes programs out there now. I think John Brookfield was the first to put the idea out there, but I could be wrong.

    I think it's great, but, as w. any kind of GPP, great for what? If it's GPP for GPP, then anything is good. If it's towards a specific purpose, then maybe, maybe not.
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    No purpose other than to get in shape. I'm 50 and looking for "interesting" ways to stay fit in addition to my powerlifting. You are correct that Brookfield came up with the idea. I found it fun in a hellish nightmare sort of way

    I've talked to several lifters who said that using the rope really helped shoulder mobility and stability. Similar to how the indian clubs did.

    I can believe that, also my sides are tight from doing "grapplers throw" with them. I can see how it would add some core stability as well

    They're fun to use at the end of a workout as a finisher. I use them for various reasons, but usually for arm and core conditioning for fighters.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
