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?

    gpp all the time?

    just curious what people here are doing, i was reading an article on this site about gpp, referring to it as more of a preparedness phase.

    i don't treat it as a phase, but as a part of my routine. i have felt really great ever since beginning gpp work, and definitely don't plan to stop it; i currently do gpp on top of a light bulking routine, and actually mix them in with each other (right in teh middle of a workout i will incorporate gpp stuff, always after my heavy work, but feel it gives me a much better all around workout)

    Well, GPP was once known as athleticism, and good athletes tend to exercise a lot.

    He did. Think about what he said before you start questioning his post.

    Let me rephrase: good athletes don't just lift weights. They play sports, work on skills, endurance, agility, and flexibility. A lot. This was once known as athleticism. It is now fasionable to call it GPP.

    okay, i get what you're saying, and i agree, good athletes are athletic. i'm asking specifically whether you do or not, not just whether athletes do.

    I followed CF for entire month ONLY doing the WOD. I was maintaining so my weight stayed the same but I got stronger and got in to much better shape. You could do it only just as is, or you could combine it with a normal weightlifting routine.

    What's an example of something you do as "gpp" in middle of your workout?

    i'll throw in stuff like wipers/ L pullups for speed after doing my heavier work. it's never the same stuff, i usually just kind of make it up as i go. like if i'm doing deadlifts, after i do my heavy work i'll do 'side deadlifts'... i don't know what they're really called, but i'll put the bar perpendicular to how it normally woudl be, alongside me, and pick it up, turn to my other side, and put it down.

    basically just random off center or speed stuff thrown in once i've completed the 'meat' of my workout (another example would be playing dance dance revolution after a leg workout..... yes i know that's gay, and no i don't care)
