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?

    Article on Squatting

    Would this interest anyone?

    I know we're all the rage about squatting and deadlifting on this site, but it seems to me that very few people actually know how to Squat. Based on what I see in the gym, regarding *incredibly* poor form and everyone's blissful ignorance of it, I'd think it'd be a helpful thing.

    I think it would be a good idea...but I don't think you can adequately inform someone of proper form without visual aids. And even then they will not be 100% sure until someone watches them and makes the minor corrections that are always required. But info on squats is always good, as there are many other things such as proper breathing technique and different stances, bar postions, etc...

    I think that you should post it. It would be good to see if your form is correct and helpful to those that are just starting out as well.

    I second the motion.

    Hmmmm... are you saying that you're gonna write it Powerman? That'd be a good idea. In maki's newest article, there will be pictures that will illustrate how to do certain things. He took them at the gym he works at with a digital camera. Perhaps you guys could take some pics with a digital camera and integrate it into the article?

    Not a bad idea at all.

    If I could somehow get hold of a digital camera, I'll see what I can do with both ATF and PL squats.

    I'd be interested to see a lot of members on this site provide personal visual examples on lots of topics. Squats, being as potentially dangerous as they are, would make an excellent article if it truly portrayed correct form and safety.

    Great..

    Hope this would stop people thinking quarter squats = parallel squats, and above parallel = ATF.

    PowermanDL- An article with pics of good form, and the most common pitfalls might be really helpful, as most articles do not have pics of what they are actually saying and it is difficult to visualize it, specially if you are a beginner.

    Yeah, that'd be cool if you wrote an artical on squats WITH pictures.

    I dont know why you say squats are all the rage.. At my gym I swear I'm the only one who squats, and deadlifts for that matter.
