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?

    Claims you shouldn't use a belt. I don't. Should I start using one?

    I couldn't finish the whole thing. It was alright. I think the fact that he didn't reference any sources took away from his credibility so I don't know how much of that I believe, if any.

    I think you should develop the patience to read more than a fifty word post at forums... Jim Wendler's stuff is usually pretty insightful and worth the time.

    This couldn't have been posted at a better time. I have my second squat day ever tomorrow. I just wish I hadn't waited this long to drop the cash on a good power rack.

    You're joking, right? From EFS:

    "Jim Wendler is the Senior Editor of Elite Fitness Systems. He is a former assistant Strength and Conditioning coach at the University of Kentucky where he worked with several different teams including football and baseball. He played football and graduated from the University of Arizona where he earned three letters. ... his best lifts in competition are a 940 squat, 650 bench press, 650 deadlift and a 2225 total."

    Philster,
    You could start by reading the whole thing before trouncing the guy for not supplying references... I don't see a lot of people citing research around here, in musclemags, or in many bodybuilding books for that matter...

    Good read, thought the last line was funny.
    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

    I haven't read it yet. But I make it a point to read anything Wendler takes the time to write. Anyone who's interested in getting stronger should do the same.
