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?

    5/3/1 "Boring But Big" 3-Month Challenge

    I am a big fan of the 5/3/1 routine, will try out this revised version that Jim Wendler posted earlier this year, looks very interesting and fun

    It is done 4 days per week, and three cycles long. First month assistance 5 x 10 @ 50%, second month assistance at 5 x 10 @ 60%, and third month assistance at 5 x 10 @ 70%. Plus you mix up the assistance lifts, like Squat days you do Deadlift assistance, and Bench Press day you do military press assistance.

    Last sets on the 5/3/1 are not taken to failure; only the required reps are done

    I will do these 4 days;

    Sunday = Deadlift
    Monday = Bench Press
    Wednesday = Squat
    Thursday = Military Press
