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?

    Keys to progress Book

    Anyone here read 'Keys to progress' Book? I ordered it ages ago and it still hasn't come yet. Should be here in a week or two.
    Its been rated an excellent book to help biuild strength and muscle. Its supposed to be a no bull**** book so it should be a good read. just curious if anyone has read it. If you have, could you tell me what you thought of it? Is it any good?

    Yes. It is great.

    Read it for the theme, not the specific workout programs (although most of them will 'put muscle on a lamppost').
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Great book! McCallum is a good writer. A definite must have for any bodybuilder/strength enthusiast.

    Yahoo probably doesn't carry it in stock (it's not thatpopular of a book). They order it when you do, have it shipped to them and then ship it to you. Next time order the book from a place that actually has the book in stock like www.davedraper.com or www.ironmind.com
