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?

    Squat help follwoing on from post not so long back (video now)

    Fella's, some of you may remember I posted a while back about fixing my squat form, it was from a 500lb squat and max attempt. The main things I got out of it were bring my grip in, which I've done a few finger spaces, nut up and get my upper back tight and basically keeping getting stronger, Im 6 weeks out from my meet, and this was tonights top set of 5, Ive previously left lbs in the tank weeks before with alot more volume beforehand so tonight was a push. Not gonna leave my thoughts, just want you guys to help me out and see if I agree with the stuff mentioned and continue to work on them.

    Im rambling, here we go.: 440x5

    lets get me a BIG PR come meet time! thanks in advance

    Id make an effort to think about keeping your knees pushed out so theyre not wiggling around. And as for the grip, i grip much narrower just because it helps me keep my back tight but if you dont have problems with that then its fine.

    I agree with Justin: try gettin' the grip in a tad more (I'd say about a hand's width each side).
    Then it's "chest up" and "knees out": have your spotter/s cue you.
