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?

    1-1.5 mins

    Seems to me than short rests are better, keeps the intensity up, keeps the workouts short.

    Lactic acid starts to really build up in joints after 5 minutes. Just under 5 minutes is enough to recuperate as much strength as possible and keep lactic acid buildup to a minimum.

    It varies, depending on your goals.

    I, for example, range from 45 seconds to 5 minutes or so, depending.
    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
