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?

    A Very Unique Article - Read

    http://www.musculartrainingdevelopme...read.php?t=872

    This is one of the most in depth articles i have read along with one of the most unique training methods also, im not sure if i would do this, but it looks very effective...

    Warning : this is about 3 pages long and takes about 20 minutes to read, i read almost all of it and skimmed some of it, but still got the main idea...



    Enjoy

    Let's see ... 5 upper body movements + 1 lower body movement - 3 useless movements = useless program.

    Here's a better article that explains why the program sucks: http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=890123

    Oh, I'm not saying you wouldn't see gains, but his claim that it's the most efficient training program on the face of the earth is a bit ridiculous. He's 21 years old and has been using it for a few months. Let's see what happens when he plateaus and realizes he needs more variety.

    PS (I totally agree! )

    I'd like to read it, but I get tired of registering for boards that I have no intention of going to on a regular basis...
    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 still don't see that in the OP, but thanks - I'll check it out.

    edit: Maybe I'm missing something because I just skimmed it, but aren't the essentials of the article simply nutrition and heavy eccentrics?...
