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?

    DE Squat Exercise

    On the DE Squat day should the primary exercise always be the Box Squat or some variation of? I feel like doing box squat every week lessens the benefit over time.

    Typically you always box squat. But you can vary the accommodating resistance and even play with the box height, weight percentages and once in a while the bar type. If things are getting stale and you don't compete you can even do a strength speed cycle with higher band tension. Donnie Thompson rotates in squats into chains instead of a box for variety.

    I think a lot of people also do DE deadlifts after de squats and again you can vary the reps, the stance (sumo vs convention), do them from a deficity, add bands or chains. These are usually done for 6-10 singles or doubles with 50-80% bar weight plus accommodating resistance. Ideally you wave the deadlifts down while you wave the squats up.

    And don't forget you train you. So if you want to do a 3 week cycle of box jumps instead of box squats go crazy, just remember box squats are the staple.
