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?

    'sumo' squat?

    so theres the sumo style deadlift, how about the squats? would it be ok to have a feet stance slightly wider than shoulder width, feet point slightly outward, and hands closer on the bar when doing squats?

    if anyone has links or info, lmk

    Check out west side training.
    Remember, to get big, you have to get strong. The two are interconnected. Lift heavy, work hard, and size will come. Like night follows day. It works. Arnold

    Absolutely. Less stress on the knees, better leverages. Move out gradually though. If you've been doing close stance squats, you don't want to push your feet all the way out and try it right away.
