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?

    Squat routine, meet in 5 weeks

    I know it's not a lot of time but I'm looking for a real short program to help me peak. I haven't followed a set routine for a couple years now so I'm wondering if there was something I should try. Looking to do a meet October 23rd so that gives me about 5 weeks from today.

    I didn't do exactly what Scott suggests above, but I definitelty eased into my meet during the last 3 weeks. This allowed me to hit pr's in both my squat and deadlift at a lighter bodyweight.
