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?

    nice lift, i've never seen squats done like that... (off the bars) would the bars be giving you any momentum up? i know thats a ton of weight but is it considered a true squat?

    yah man i was worried the weight was gonna fall right off the bar lol. Good power man but i dont know about the whole slamming on the bar thing you have to control the weight for it to be a rep. Also you dont get parallel but that takes some power none the less, good job.

    you guys need an updated divx driver sounds like...

    and i dont claim to be an expert or anything, but that was some dangerous stuff right there. first off you didnt use collars. even if there werent any, thats not an excuse, just dont squat. secondly, when i was watching you unrack the bar and set up, i thought your knees were going to snap. you dont seem stable enough under all that weight, maybe you have a weak core or something. lastly, you went way too fast and only halfway to parallel. that will do nothing to get you stronger, that form will only cause you injury. you need to do slower, more controlled reps.

    good job though man

    Deff not to parallel, and the balance was sick. Look at kevs squat vids that were just posted in his journal... those would be counted as real reps. You couldve hurt yourself and at best you almost dropped weights off the right side. You need to go about 3-5 inches further down, slow the rep down and you cant bounce the weight of the saftey bars in the power rack. Nothing should ever physically rest on anything other then your own strength. Still we can see the power there, I would suggest trying a rep maybe 50lbs lighter then that working on the overall form. Still damn strong either way.

    I sure HOPE it's a joke! Quarter squats, bouncing off the pins, stepping forward out of the j-hooks, and no collars... un-freaking-believable...

    Where on earth did you find that video? Tell me because I want to see more!!!

    It would been funny if he had broken the safety bars and it just collapsed on him.

    I knew it was not debussy and put a little sarcasm on it. The really sad thing about it was that there where 1 or 2 others cheering this guy on. A little more and you have a blown knee and thats getting off easy.
