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?

    Great article and discussion. It is nice to read a discussion that doesn't devolve into name calling over the pros and cons of this system. Thanks guys.

    I disagree with the love fest over this article. I think there is some very important info missing. A person new to DC would not be able to create a routine from this article. As it stands I would change the title to the foundations of DC or basics of DC but not the definitive guide to DC.

    It is there if you really read it. It is a template though, so you get a variety of exercise options to choose from (and you can add more of your own). If you list an exact workout in every article you write, particularly an article like this in which you are giving readers a glimpse of an entire training SYSTEM, you are doing them a disservice. Listing exercises, sets and reps does not take into account any individuality, let alone access to specific machines or equipment. This is teaching someone how to fish, rather than baiting their hook and pointing them towards a bucket with a hungry fish already in it.

    As always, a hard to please crowd on here...

    Going a thousand words over the normal WBB 2,500 word limit, I think that is about as definitive as it can get. Dante, of course, may have done a more definitive guide as this is his thing. I did talk to a half-dozen people that have extensively used the system, as well as reviewed the printed literature on the system, including Trudel's rare original writings. This gives you a perspective, of both the positives and negatives of the program, that I have not seen elsewhere.

    I can't imagine training with the Westside Method having only read one article on it, not would I expect anyone to stop their research here. Many of the people on here have heard of DC but only have a vague idea of what it may be. This article gives them a clear view of the what the DC Training system is. If there is a 3,500 word article that is more definitive, please point it out to me. I must have missed it.

    I am hard to please in this case because I train DC, I have read everything I could get my hands on about DC, and own the DC training video.

    I listed my main points that I think you are missing on the first page of this thread. I just think the article is mistitled. It's not a definitive guide, it is a beginners guide.

    I do think you have a lot of great info and a lot of great sources. I just think the article is missing key pieces. Maybe it would have been better to break it up into a series of atricles.
