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?

    When I'm in that phase of training, I cycle through 2-3 squat variations (usually less CNS-intensive ones like high bar, high bar paused, front squat, paused front squat, or squat from pins set at the bottom) and work up to a non-psyched max for the day. That's usually between 90-95% of a true max, based on general level of arousal and stimulant consumption. Most days I'd aim for a PR, but if a PR would require getting really pumped and grinding a near-max, I'd shut it down when I needed to and save it for another day.
