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?

    Question On Rest

    I was just wondering. I know that rest is one of the main keys into your muscles growing. Well I lifted legs today, saturday, then had to go to work,which involves alot of walking. Then I came home and have rested. Will it hurt me to play basketball tomorrow or should I just stay home and rest?

    7 or 8 is fine. Some people can only manage this much. I haven't slept for 10 hours in months.

    Hmm...10...actually I haven't slept that much since I had surgery and was recovering. I slept all day then. Considering all the things I have to do during the day, that just seems like a waste of daylight. Naps are ok though.

    Actually I enjoyed every minute of it. I was also on Vicodin 4 times a day. Peeing in a mini-urinal was not fun though (I couldn't move at all for a while). Played lots of video games, watched a lot of TV, and read a few books while I was recovering.

    If you play basketball, your legs will wither away - just say no to basketball.

    Don't worry about it.
    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
