The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    NEWSLETTER ARTICLE - Method vs Method

    By Ty Phillips

    I hear more questions on this method vs. that method. Strongman vs. Powerlifting, Oly lifting vs. Powerlifting and we all make fun of body builders. Jumbo sized morons shaving each other down and rubbing each other in baby oil to play sausage mania on stage.... but enough with that crap. Let's get back to the point. There is no such thing as the one sure fire method. Are there worse methods and better methods, probably. It all really comes down to one thing in the end. Genetics and common sense.

    When we start out, everything works because everything is new and causes stress on the body and thus creates growth. But, as is human nature, we cling to things we like and we have had success with and ridicule everything else.

    I was very guilty of this msyelf..even last year. I had a background in strongman and I was anti gear, anti sumo deadlift, anti bench etc. ad infinitum. I teased guys in my gym for these very things and swore I would never do them. Now, I find myself powerlifting, wearing gear, doing sumo for assistance work and using bands and chains and even..wait for it, enjoying benching!

    So what's my point, right? My point is, we all cling to things, we all make rash judgements on what we feel is best, useful and the right way to do things.

    Truth be told, none of us know jack **** and all we do is lift weights. Why not learn all we can, enjoy the process just shut the hell up and train!
