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?

    reverse hypers and their effect on your deadlift?

    outside of their use as a traction device, how much have they improved your deadlift?

    I did a few sets with 6 total plates (3 each side) swinging it through to where it pulls me under and contracting fully at the top. I see alot of people just swinging it. Is this the right way to use it? it is a CONTROLLED swing but still a swing. Pulled 700 off the weak point boxes tonight and first time seriously using the device but it didn't seem to be the developer that people claim to be. Just curious on your experiences and thoughts.

    There's a lot to be said for the exercise performed strictly or as a controlled swing. IMO (and I don't have a lot of experience with the exercise honestly except as a rehab tool), it's a great exercise for people that just don't utilize their hips and hams as much as they could when deadlifting. It absolutely wakes those areas up in a way that other exercises (generally) do not.

    It's an awesome exercise/tool. Not the Holy Grail, but still awesome.
    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

    I think you should use a controlled tempo or a strict tempo. Just violently swinging it doesn't really make any sense to me. That's just ego.
