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?

    Neat Story.

    I work at the student activity center and currently we are hosting the Michigan special Olympics. Yesterday, I was downstairs in the weight room checking equipment and there was some athletes training or warming up on the deadlift. I thought it was cool not only that these mentally impaired athletes were working out but they were going to competing in power lifting. Also I saw them work up to a single of 225 and a couple of them probably had an easy 100 pounds left in them at that point. Pretty cool stuff if you ask me.

    Anyone who has never volunteered at a Special Olympics should. It can be a life-changing event.
    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

    I do a Polar Plunge for the Special Olympics each year and it's amazing. Seeing the smiles on individuals of unfortunate genetics and situations is great to see. A lot that I have met are amazing people in character and in speech. I'm glad they can make such a difference in the community and in others in growing.
