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?

    PowerLifting????

    I was wondering if it would be o.k. to do 1 day of powerlifting in my routine for example a regular workout Tues.Thurs.Sat and the 4 power lifts on sunday.


    An another thought i had in mind was regular weightlifting from October to May and the PowerLifting from June to Sept.????

    Any guidance would be really aprreciated

    Four power lifts? There's only three (squat, bench, deadlift). What are you counting as the other one?

    powerlifting is weightlifting.... I dont get the question.... Either you do a bodybuilding workout and train for hypertrophy or you do a powerlifting workout and train for strength. You cant ask us which would be bettter, it totally depends on your goals.

    Powerlifting = squat, bench press, deadlift
    Weightlifting = clean & jerk, snatch
    Weight lifting = lifting a weight

    Even if things were as cut and dry as you describe (they aren't), size and strength aren't the only options available ...

    LOL... Oh anthony! hahaha...

    I stand corrected, I meant that powerlifters lift weights just like weightlifters do. I dont understand what it is he is asking because he just asked which would be best for him, I saw nothing about what his goals are or why/what he is training for. Thats why I said, powerlifting is weight lifting (minus the space of course) because in powerlifting- you lift weights.

    As for the strength vs. Size thing, those are just the things we hear most about on this website and so I *Generally* assume (yes I know assumptions are B-A-D) that if someone is training for something else then they would mention that.

    Thanks for the english lesson

    BTW- isnt "Olympic Lifting" the snatch, clean + jerk? Or is it also called "weightlifting"? Whenever I hear ppl talk about those excersizes it is with regards to the former and not the latter.

    hahaha, I told you I was nitpicking! Weightlifting is also referred to as Olympic Weightlifting or Olympic Lifting.
