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?

    Incline b.bell press? Where too?

    Just curious to see if anyone raises the bar above anywhere except their chest.

    I have heard of people pressing to their neck.

    That'd be a little akward to me. Cant say that I've seen anyone do that. I'm kinda curious also what this would work as oppose to pressing from the chest. I would think that someone couldnt press near as much weight that way.

    I stop about 2-3 inches from my chest. For some reason I am not flexable enough to touch the bar to my chest w/o some decent pain in my shoulders.

    tuck your elbows in?

    I cant imagine incline going from the neck up, i go from the bottom of the chest, feels most natural.

    I would guess that if you press from the neck ya gonna **** your shoulder up once you start adding some weight to the bar. If it doesn't feel natural, dont do it!
