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?

    1 1/2 rep Squats w/bands

    Bands are a great way to go against the strength curve and produce more tension thru the strongest areas of the curve as well as lighten up in the weakest for a constant tension thru entire range of motion. Doing 1 1/2 reps with bands is another great way to crank up intensity without having to put more weight on the bar and the constant tension from the bands will light your legs up.

    I add bands to a lot of my movements: dumb bell bench, flat bench, seated rows, and lat pull downs. I like the fact that inform everyone that you don't have to lift super heavy to see results. I think people would find it comical how to see how light I go, but I would kill them on intensity and time under tension.

    Jay Cutler seemed to be incorporating a lot more band work into his routine in his later years. The squat movement seems like it would pay some great dividends to quad development.

    Heavy is relative. I dictate heavy by how much tension the muscle is under while keeping perfect form and isolating the targeted muscle as much as possible in body part training. I don't think of Heavy in terms of how much weight. I am a bodybuilder not a weightlifter or powerlifter.
