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?

    PTing Down Under

    I was thinking about spending next semester (and possibly this summer) in Australia, probably in Bondi. Anyway while I'm there I figure I might as well make some money so I was wondering if anyone of you guys from down under might enlighten me to how the personal training industry is down there.

    Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I've heard horror stories about PTing in Australia. Don't know if they are true or not.
    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

    Wait like what?

    I'll keep in mind that you're not sure whether they're true or not.

    Lawsuits, regulated licensing, very prescriptive training regimens, etc.

    Complete lack of central accreditation, in house training - which blows balls, all of these circut training chains that are female only.

    I can't join a gym because I'm an imposing figure, they don't have adequte equipment to suit my needs, and their fee's are absurdly high. There is much worse.
