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?

    Specialized Routines

    HEy guys,
    There are several routines out there that focus on one lift only. WHen doing something like the SMOLOV squatting program, or the Russian benching routine, can you still do other lifts? I think the SMOLOV routine would help my squat a lot, but I don't want to do it and have my bench and deadlift suffer. Can you still bench even though you are squatting 3 times a week? Thanks.

    You can, but its maintenance only.

    Don't expect your other lifts to go up while you're doing something like that.

    Hercule, can you give some more info about this type of training, like a link to an article or something. Kinda interested in it myself.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."

    Why not work on Westside? Then you can do all 3 lifts and not neglect any of them.

    Good luck if you choose to do it. I've heard it's brutal.
