The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s 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?

    Inzer makes great wrist wraps. They come in 3 sizes: 12" , 20" , 36" . I prefer the longer wraps, but go with what you feel comfortable with. If you compete, go with what your federation allows.

    yeah man, i have the link and everything. the wraps i have now are just like generic wraps. there probably about 12 in long. i think im going to go with the medium ones and see how i like those. these arent for competition, just for paying gym dues.

    For general use go with the 20" wraps.

    I agree. The 12" wraps are almost no support whatsoever - just cuts off circulation for me. Get the 20".
    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 only complaint I have about my Inzer wraps are that they are not right and left. They sent me two that are alike. Is this normal?

    That has driven me nuts for years.

    I guess we have the same version of OCD.

    I get plenty of support out of my 12" wraps. Although I'm not sure I bench enough that it matters.

    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've always had pretty good service w. Inzer - I don't think anything has ever taken longer than a week to get.

    No because then the velcro is on the inside.

    They must have had them in stock.

    I realized I need new wrist wraps the other day. My 12 inchers are pretty frazzled. I'm gonna get some 20 inch wraps for added support.

    If you're not too sure about Inzer, go to APT pro wrist straps... they are just about the best out there. Period.

    Ya, they come in left and right... lol.

    Here's a picture of mine from APT, and they are the best I've used. Good support, but not too stiff that they would cut off circulation. And, they are IPF approved.

    I have a 12" and a 20" pair of Inzer wrist wraps and I love em. I typically only used the 12" though the 20" can get kinda tight, usually use it for competitions.
