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?

    Man, these own your abs. I was doing heavy GM yesterday, and only my last rep, bout 1 or so short from failure, I noticed my abs were like caving in haha.

    I've only tried GM's once, a long time ago.. so i'm giving them a shot in my next workout, which is going to be in an hour, or tomorrow, i haven't decided yet.

    I find I need to put a fair bend to my knees to get good stability. It kind of removes the hams a little (they, and my ass in particular, may disagree) but if I don't feel stable when doing any lift stupid **** happens because I'm trying to instinctively get there.

    Capn Crunch - Atta boy

    Brick - Yah man its a core killer

    Pinky - Do it up boy

    Shockboxer - If I go completely straight leg theres no way I can reach parallel im just not flexible enough, my max stretch hits about 3/4 the way to parallel, I usually put a slight bend in my knees that still gives a sick stretch in my hams and glutes but allows me ot get deeper.

    Plus stretching your flexibility limits while under lots of weight is not a good thing, expecially for hammies. You DON'T want a hamstring injury, trust me.

    How much weight should i try the first time i do them, i was thinking 45's on each side but that seams like it might be too much so maybe ill do 115 first.

    rbar - First time you do em do em with just the bar, make sure you get your form down pat before adding weight, then progress to 95/115/135 etc... till you reach your limit.

    Good mornings are awesome, especially for powerlifters and strongman competitors. Start off very light and slowly add a little bit at a time, and you'll work up to some decent weights. I started off with just 95 and now at 175 pounds I can do 245, which is still nothing compared to some of the guys I know doing 400-500+ for singles. I haven't done them in a few months but I'll be tossing them in again real quick now that my competition is over.
