The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    do you do some form of squat every session!?

    good job on the GM's, I also am willing to bet if you brought them up, your squat/DL would shoot even higher!
    Check out my training:

    Yep! I tend to alternate high bar and low bar, but I usually squat at least 5-6 days per week (7 in theory, although I usually cant make it to the gym at least one day a week). It may sound counter-intuitive, but after my body adjusted to the frequency I feel so much better than I did squatting once or twice a week, and the gains have never been better. As a matter of fact, I just got done uploading a video about squatting in response to some questions I've received on my blog. I'll link it once it processes.

    Here's my training post from today though: http://gregnuckols.wordpress.com/201...es-a-squat-pr/

    (abbreviated version, low barred 585x3 - first two paused, and benched up to 405x2)

    You're totally right about the GMs by the way. I hate them with a burning passion so I try to rationalize my way out of them, but I really should do them more.

    Just accessory work. Nothing exciting really.

    How do you decide how heavy to go in a given session? Do you have a plan or do you go by feel? I saw you mention that you squat 6 days a week, so I was just wondering.
