    Default Induction and the Squat

    by Noah Milstein

    In the world of strength training, the squat is a contentious topic. Camps and opinions proliferate but reasoned argument does not. How should one squat? High-bar position, low-bar position, no bar, single leg, on a bosu ball, suspended on thera bands over a pit of lava? There seems to be no end to the hand wringing and clucking on the matter. Each party in this debate brings arguments to advance their position. What’s an objective observer to do? How does one decide what is true?

    Good stuff Noah. Sounds like you have been heavily influenced by Nassim Taleb, perhaps? His view of the limits of knowledge and the weakness of human knowledge, logic, and reasoning are interesting to me. Have you read Popper? I tried but could not get through it.

    Let us know when you get up to Boston. I need a coaching session.

    A nice contribution. Thank-you. But festina lente with that Latin: q.e.d. = quod erat demonstrandum, a gerundive expression meaning approximately "that which had to be proven."
