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?

    Big three stats question...

    Hi all,
    A random question, I know, but when quoting your stats/personal records etc or, for example, in the bodyweight repping competition that has been running on here is it conventional to take into account the weight of the bar? For example if my one rep max was 100kgs of weight actually on the bar does that count as a 100kg lift or a 115kg lift (assuming the bar is 15kg?)?
    Thanks!
    ps what weight is a standard barbell? Is 15kg about right?

    Yes.

    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

    The weight of the bar is always factored in. It is part of the weight you are lifting.
