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?

    One thing that I need answered.

    1. Deep squat: I have trouble pushing the weight up from the sitting position of a deep squat. Are there specific things I can do to improve my thrust from that position?

    Ummm, lower the weight, perhaps?

    Not trying to be a smartass, really I'm not, but it's the first thing you should ordinarily consider when you can't do a full rep of any exercise with proper form. Specially when you're doing full ROM squats.

    Remove a few plates until you reach a weight that you CAN push up out of the hole. Work up from there over time.

    Good luck.

    The hole is a bitch. It's the sticking point of the squat. You could try doing low box squats.

    That's that hardest part of the squat!!

    Here's how you do box squats: http://www.weightliftingdiscussion.com/boxsquat.html
    Remember, the key is to stop flexing your legs slightly while on the box. This forces you to go from a dead stop, as opposed to using elastic energy in your legs.
