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?

    Make your own boards

    buy bands at elitefts.com
    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

    For boards, just get some 2x6 that's 12-16" long and duct tape them together for different heights. Remember that each board is actually 1.5" ...

    For bands, I agree with www.elitefts.com ... I bought the band pack from them and I'm very pleased with the purchase.

    I think those are different bands. Are they the thin sheets of rubber for rehab? The jumpstretch bands are like big rubber bands, not really available by the foot.
