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?

    Off the top of my head I know that SPF allows wraps in the raw division (untested w/ monolift). NASA also allows wraps in the raw division (drug tested, walked out).

    Just to add to that, the APF doesn't allow wraps in their raw division, but I believe they made a subdivision called "classic raw" or something like that and it does allow wraps.

    That's correct. APF has "raw" that is monolift w/ no knee wraps. There is also "classic," but I'm not sure if all meets have that division or not. I know that some APF meets do. The APF meets in Texas usually have Equipped or Unequipped. I have not seen "classic" as an option here.

    I'm not 100% sure but I believe that Jon Grove from NGBB is the only one that offers the "classic raw" division.

    The APF Raw Challenge in December in Willowbrook, IL is having the classic option as well.

    Excellent work man, a 2.5x BW squat is no joke.

    Thanks guys. To this date that 501.5 squat in competition is what I am most proud of so far in my lifting career.

    Looked great! Nice work!
    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

    Thanks guys! If you notice I stand wider in my meet video. This stance is still somewhat new and I feel strong and recover better with it! Also if you listen in the backround you can hear my training partner count 3 2 1. This lets me know where I'm at depth wise, I've never seen this method used before. With gear its usually back back back up! I don't think this works to good with raw squatting because when raw the kinetic chain of energy/stretch reflex comes more into play. Just thought I'd share that with you guys.
