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?

    Weight Question

    Hi, ok I am 200 lbs and about 5'10, I have a sizable amount of muscle on me. When I look at charts for what my weight is supposed to be it says healthy weight for a 5'10 person is 175. Does that take muscle into consideration. Think its time for a cut? I just hate losing strength and muscle i spent so much time on packin on.

    are you talking about a BMI Chart? Those are for SEDENTARY individuals, not physically active ones.

    Do you know your body fat % ? That'd be a better indicator of whether or not you're at a healthy weight.

    What are your goals?

    Ignore those charts.
    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
