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?

    Squat video...2 months post-op!!!

    It's been 2 months since I had my ACL surgery, and this is my third squat session. Things seem to be doing pretty good. But i'm still a little nervous and of course my knee is still pretty weak. I am going to focus on box squats for awhile until I feel 100% confident with the strength in my knee. Today, I started with a 15" box and finished off with a 14" box (video).

    Thanks guys. I'm not going to push it. I'll be staying around this weight for awhile and then start going up slow.

    Strong work. Been through 2 ACL repairs myself. ...not fun. Hang in there.
    I know you're half-crazy, but I wish you'd go all the way.
