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?

    Andy Bolton

    1,003 pound deadlift. wow. i've been reading up on this dude and watching videos, and he pretty much amazes me.

    his split looks like this

    Monday- Bench, shoulders, tri's
    Tuesday- Cardio
    Wednesday- Squats, deadlifts (the deadlifts are more like rack pulls, he does them elevated with boards)
    Thursday- Legs, upper back, traps
    Friday- cardio
    Saturday- cardio
    Sunday- rest


    this split is kind of weird, not really what i expected. why does he do squats wednesday then legs thursday? i guess its just what suits him, and it sure as hell works.

    A big lifter doing cardio 3 times a week seems odd. Anyways where are the videos?

    If it was in flex chances are its crap. Cool flex is covering more strongman and powerlifters though.

    I wonder if by "cardio" he means HIIT or GPP stuff. Even so, not what I'd expect from an elite level powerlifter. Generally, doing much cardio would be a hindrence in making muscular/strength gains.

    Andy posts on one of the British powerlifting boards. I'm sure he'd be willing to answer any questions.

    No that's really his routine. He also does a lot of plyometrics.

    Don't believe what you read in FLEX. Light cardio will actually help the recovery process. No matter what his training split is, he's a strong dude. I think he squatted 1211, benched 631, and DLed 931 at the Arnold.

    Where are you getting that from?

    That site lists his workout like this:
    Monday: Bench press and relevant assistance work (board presses, etc). Shoulder work, which will include some pressing up to around 8 weeks out, then heavy front and side raises. Assorted triceps work, with pressdowns forming the base.

    Wednesday: Squat and deadlift, with both lifts being trained within the set percentage parameters required by each particular mesocycle. After deadlifts, very heavy leg presses and leg curls are performed for 6 sets of 8-10 reps. Heavy abdominal work concludes the workout.

    Friday: This is reserved for upper back assistance work and will involve two forms of rowing, followed by one form of pulldowns. Heavy shrugs will be performed for six sets and some biceps work will wrap up the session.

    Yeah, what I should have said was, 'Is Andy lifting clean or juiced?.



    Having just watched his DVD, he seems to be heavily juiced.

    Just wondering if it was humanly possible to lift such loads clean.

    Would he be stronger than guys like Charles Atlas, Louis Cyr, Alexander Zass etc having been around back in the day?.
