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?

    Abs confusing

    I can do turning crunches and lift my legs into the air turn hold and place back down... this is all fine for a six pack which i have now... but it wont do anything for my side abs? dunno what they're called. How do i target these?

    I need to 'expand' myself a bit more... grow in mass. but stay lean if that makes sense.

    They're called obliques. Do stuff like floor wipers, weighted side bends and crunch twists.

    Yeah i love weighted side bends. They even start to work my forearm by the second set cause of holding the dumbbell :P

    Obliques. Weighted side crunches, and side bends. There's a whole bunch of exercises to target that group of muscles. Just look...
    Starting over...

    You can do oblique v-ups. Just get on your right side. Put your right arm down on the ground in front of you and your legs at about a 25 degree angle from the rest of your body. Then, using your elbow as a pivot raise your legs and your head/shoulders at the same time. Don't let them touch the ground in between reps.

    That works for me.
