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?

    3/2/11...Squat video w/ Scott Weech

    Today I did some squat training with Scott Weech. He is getting ready for a strongman competition at the end of the month. As for myself, I am just trying to get stronger. He worked up to 700x3 and I worked up to 560x3 and I did 2 dropsets afterwards. Here's the video:

    Thanks Scott!!! I was but I didn't train last week, and for some reason I didn't follow it through this week. I'm probably going to take it easy for a few weeks and then start it up again when I get ready for the USPA Raw Nationals.

    Good work as usual. Scott turns it on meet day. If you saw this without knowing, you would think 750....no, 854!

    Thanks Adam!!! When it's time to get ready for a meet, he becomes a different animal. He is also training for a strongman competition, so I'm sure he's a little beat up from that.

    My glutes aren't really sore but my quads are.

    Ya my training rigth now is focused on strongman so I do not push my squats as high. Actually in that vid I had planned on 4 or 5 but on the 3rd I felt a pop in my right hamstring and it was a little sore. I feel pretty good today but did not want to risk injury. I am planning on doing the Europa PL in April so it will be a little crazy doing a pl that close to a Strongman but it will be very interesting to see how it turns out. Typically I stay lighter on my squats getting ready for a Strongman but I am going to try and keep them higher during strongman seasons to better transition between the 2 a little better.
