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?

    Make sure whatever routine you decide to go with, that you throw in some power cleans.

    I'm wondering what your stats are, you will need to be strong, big, and fast for your age if you want to start at varsity linebacker aswell as hit hard and tackle well.
    Age: 19 | height: 6'1''

    Bench: 275 | Squat: 355 | Clean: 240 | Deadlift: 455 | Body Weight-205lbs

    Im 14... look what I can do.

    OP, look into either Bill Starr 5x5, or Rippetoes if your a newbie, but go with the Starr.
    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.

    Where did you read that?

    I could do that last year at 130 lbs body weight, so I'm wondering what that would have been considered.

    There's plenty of 15 year olds that can bench 225+, maybe some are lying and some aren't, hopefully no one lies on here because their just hurting themselves anyways.

    to the OP, I would say maybe do like 4 days a week, one day with 3 parts of body (like legs, core, shoulders) on one day and just mix it up so their all worked equal. That's KIND OF what my [****ty one that unexperienced coach gave us that I don't use] is like... What I've mainly heard for football is many powercleans, BW exercises like pullups for strong back, pushups for endurance etc.. and work forearms and shoulders and core and legs alot, you need all of those things for tackling and such.

    Use heavy weights, 3x3 or something like that to build strength and size. Do some farmers walks and sled running too, that helps a lot for football.

    Hope I helped a little bit, I like to ramble nonsense alot.
