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?

    Not too much volume for Legs:
    Leg Extensions 3 x 8-10
    Squats 4 x 8-10
    Stiff-Legged Dead Lifts or Lying Leg Curls 3 x 8-10

    Except I would do Squats first.

    I would say WBB1 is better...
    especially for beginners... Cutler's program is asking for too much for a newbie...
    And it you put the maximum effort into WBB, your strength gains will be greater..
    And then once you have that solid base and understand the complexities/simplicities of lifting and you want to obtain different goals, then try a more BB routine like Cutlers and see what your results are.

    But give WBB#1 4 months.. you will see the results.

    I really don't know why any beginner would want or need to be training 6x/week and doing over 20 sets in any training session...
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
