. . .Why does this matter? It matters whether you care about competing or whether you don’t.
If you care about competing, then you want to make sure that you’re on a level playing field and that the competition is fair. If I were to challenge someone to a 400m run and then run 300m while my competitor runs 400m, then our performances aren’t really comparable (to say nothing of the fact that I cheated). In the same vein, if I challenge someone to max number of push presses in one minute, and then proceed to do push jerks while my competitor does push presses, then once again, our performances are not comparable. It’s apples and oranges. I wanna level the playing field.
If you don’t care about competing, but you do care about making improvements in the movements we do, then you’ll want to take note of our movement standards as well. If you have it as a goal to squat 250 lbs, you’ll want to know what the correct bottom of a squat is so that you can get it. If you load 250 lbs on the bar and then go down into a half-squat and come back up, then you really haven’t done a squat. . .
Mike really lays it out nice in this article. I couldn’t have said it better myself. -jj
Video – recently featured on The IF life:
Dr. Ron Rosedale talks about common cholesterol myths. (The video is a little quirky, as it is an audio discussion pasted over some film footage, but the talking points are great).
