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?

    I can't wear a weight vest? I can't do more reps? I can't remove the kip? There are plenty of ways to make these more difficult and make "gains" ...

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Jodi kicks ass. Nice job to both of you! I might have to go buy a set of those rings!
    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

    Great job guys!

    I'm terrified to do that. I tried it once before at the beaches after eating samosa. When i got up, my hand slipped off the ring from the samosa grease and my whole arm got caught and ended up looking like an idiot.

    Nice work. Anthony you look a lot heavier than 180. I'm 165 and I only look half as big.

    Yes, but anthony is a hobbit.

    Ducks a flying squat rack*
    Being a strong teenager means nothing.

    My wrists hurt, but some people don't have wrists to be sore. My knees have tendinitis, but some people don't have legs to get tendinitis in. I seem to be going backwards with training, yet some people can't even walk let alone lift 400 pounds on a daily basis.

    Dust out the vagina, and keep on lifting.

    Anthony, to do those you just bring your own rings to the gym with you and then tie them about a chin-up bar, or does the gym happen to have a set?

    Awesome, both of you. Are ring muscle ups any easier than a straight bar?

    Have you tried them? How many can you do? They're tough enough by themselves, I know. I can do 2Xbw dips, and pullups with BW+120lbs, but I can't do a muscleup yet.
