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?

    When do newbie gains stop?

    On average, how long would you have to lift to not be considered a newbie>

    This depends on how much time u out into it in my opinion. Newbie gains can last between 1-4 months maybe longer im sure its different for everybody however depending on wether ure interested and put any effort into what ure doing and learning more u could be classed as a newbie forever lol

    It depends on how you train and recover, but I'd say (with absolutely no scientific basis) the honeymoon period is a year or so.
    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

    First 20 lbs or so. Afterwards it becomes a struggle to gain.

    Approximately 86 days, 11 hours, 27 minutes from the moment you lift your first weight.

    Give or take a minute.

    Squat = Not enough
    DL = Not enough
    Bench = Not enough

    Big 3 = Not enough
