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?

    I don't know about thousands, but it's a pretty popular Westside variant.

    I've tried a 3x/week WS split before and the problem that I had was that I needed more frequent work for my BP/Upper Back work than I did for my SQ/DL work. I think having a "repetition method" day for the third session makes a lot of sense for that reason.
    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

    I use it to a degree, I cycle my main exercises by month and my accessories every fortnight, and supports I alternate by week.

    Powerlifting is about getting your body to recruit more muscle fibres, no mainly packing on size. Size will come from your diet.

    What's the difference between accessories and supports? I've only ever done accessory work. By which I mean stuff like bb curls, skulls, pushdowns, hammers. What would be support lifts?

    The difference between westide training and westide for skinny bastards are wsfsb has repetition days mainly for hypertophy. In regular westide they have dynamic lifting days mainly for explosivness and not size gains.

    Dynamic Lifts. Box sqauts, close grips, wide grips, stances, bands, chains.

    To be honest I think the dynamic days combined with the max effort days provide an enormous hypertrophy stimulus... not much else is needed. Ah well it'll work either way.

    Could be millions. I use my own skinny bastard westsidian variant, and it seems to work well.
