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?

    BOX SQUAT - Added 40-50lbs to my Normal Squat in 2 weeks?!?!

    Anybody else experienced this?

    Was struggling with 315 for 1rep normal squat.

    Did solely Box Squats for 2 weeks ( 3x a week ) , not only did my Box Squat numbers fly up ridiculously fast, but my normal squat went up significantly higher (I'm talking 40+ pounds!)

    After doing some research, I found out Box Squats, because of the way you have to pull out the "hole" from a complete stop help your

    *GLUTE/HAMSTRING* activation.

    It is not necessarily even your muscle strength going up ( even though it does ), but more your Central Nervous System learning to utilize the muscles better [ Mind + Body correlation ] from this position.

    Please share some stories so I can see how others have benefited from this!! I am addicted to doing these now

    Read a little at the Westside Barbell website, and you will see some guys that benefited from it.
