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?

    Knee wraps??..

    well today i got a pair of Inzer knee wraps for the state meet in 14days, and wanted to know the right way to wrap knees. I had mine wrapped for one lift on squat at regionals. Well it helped alot and am pretty sure there is somewhat a surtian way to do it..or i think so is there?

    Dr. Fred Hatfield (aka "Dr. Squat") Kneed to Know:

    One additional tidbit: If you have some extra wrap at the end, you will want to tuck that under the wrap in such a way that some of it is sticking out above the knee - purists will say this is cheating and trying to put one over on the judges, but screw them...

    edit: One more additional tidbit - you really should practice in them before using them in a meet and get as comfortable as possible wearing them. I don't know how many times I've seen guys get misloaded and have to stand around while the bar gets reloaded - the experienced guys will be all right, but the novices will be almost crying and sometimes be asking people around them to unwrap and then rewrap them...

    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
