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?

    WBB1 and deadlift

    So WBB1 has deadlift (and squat) at 2 sets of 6-8. More often than not, though, I see recommendations for much shorter heavy sets since form tends to degrade over a long set. I know that the best thing to do is to try something different and see if it works, so last week I moved deads to 3x5 but went heavier than I did the week before.

    I liked the lift more with the shorter sets, and I'm thinking I may do something similar for squat.

    I'd like to vary the routine some, so I'm thinking of using some weeks for form/endurance and doing 3x5 or 5x5 with lighter weights and then having other weeks go for more of a heavy singles/doubles. Think it'll work?

    The first changes I made to WBB1, a routine I did for more than a year, was alter the big three's set/rep scheme. I say go for it!
