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?

    4 days is plenty to be lifting weights

    just find a decent 4 day split and you'll be fine

    (WBB1 or 2 or 3, or even baby got back are all 3 or 4 day splits I think)

    I anticipated this thread to be about a woman's large buttocks.


    What king wilder said, do what your body can handle, and make sure you're getting enough calories.

    15 hours of manual labor a week??? A lot of people would find that a relief!!

    At 16 with 5 months lifting experience, I really doubt you need to be lifting 6 days/week...
    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

    Alot of the powerlifting guys on this forum do upwards of 48 hours of pretty hard work, I do about 60 and I'm constantly gaining.

    BGB is for you. http://www.wannabebig.com/article.php?articleid=255

    It's a four day split, it's very effective (I'm finding that out right now).

    Man at your age 15 hours a week of that shouldn't even affect your energy level.
