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?

    Crain (as in Rickey Dale Crain - famous PLer) suits and shirts sell pretty well in Japan. I've heard good things from some Japanese guys who use and swear by them.

    I've never tried them myself and I can't imagine they'd be better than Inzer or Titan, but who knows?
    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

    His gear is actually pretty good. His bench shirt for a long time was really ahead of its time. Plus he is just a legend and knows his stuff.
