It’s 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?
I was always the opposite; strong on pushups and couldn't do any pull-ups.
My son was crappy at push-ups, so I had him doing pushups where he was starting from flat on the floor (deloaded) every rep. It has helped him a ton.
