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?

    Please help, will doing the WBB I II and III hamper my ability to play ball?

    Hey all,

    I'm half way through my current 12 week program set to end once softball practices start in March.

    I am interested in starting the WBB I training routine in March but I am wondering if I will lose mobility becasue of muscle mass and also how my kinetics will be affected.

    I am not a kinesiologist and do not have the neccesary knowledge about how weightlifting affects specific sport. I know there is limits for different sports, Ive never seen a big weighlifter play professional tennis.

    I also want to regain some of the speed I once had before getting into a motorcycle accident and having a newborn around the house..

    Muscle mass won't inhibit your mobility.

    I would ask what your training goals are. Are you interested in being a better ball player, or being a successful competitive bodybuilder, or something else?
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    I has a blog.
    I has a facebook.

    I want to be strong and quick but do not want to compete in bodybuilding. I want to be able to keep my competitive edge in baseball and tennis. I love pushing weights, always have and I would like to see myself grow physically as I do enjoy that aspect of bodybuilding.

    I have never seen a balet dancer in the NFL. Completely different professions. If you plan on being a competitive bodybuilder then maybe it would hinder sports someday...

    If anything, training will make you better at sports...especially softball when you hit you will have more power.
