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?

    Top 3 TRICEP exercises

    My cable pulley system at my Uni is messed up, it feels jerky and so I have dropped doing pulley pulldowns

    I do close grip bench press and weighted dips.

    What is another good MASS building tricep exercise? French extensions are out of the question.

    CG bench and dips will be enough.
    If you feel you need more, put more effort in to your work sets.

    Weighted dips are definitely awesome. I've only recently started doing them; I can only manage a 50 pound dumbbell under me. I've seen guys doing it with like two 45's on a dip belt though...

    Bench press, overhead press, close grip press, dips.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Your triceps don't need isolated work. If you're benching, overhead pressing, and doing weighted dips (and you should be), then your tri's will be fine.

    - Heavy Close Grip High Board Presses (3/4/5)
    - Rolling DB Extentions
    - JM Presses

    Just my opinion.

    Any heavy board presses, db or bb extensions.

    I don't do JM press because it always just winds up being an extension, so I stick to that.

    JM presses and kaz presses. There's been a couple of threads about this.

    Closegrip bench
    weighted dips
    then a couple sets of press downs at the end. I also saw the Westside guys doing a weird form of skull crushers/neutral grip db bench. I tried it and it absolutely blasted my tri's.

    I disagree. I am a member of the high volume club. At least 4 exercises per bodypart with 3-4 sets and 8-12 reps. I do dumbell behind the neck extensions, they are good.

    Says who? There's no document written in stone that says this, or the contrary. Do whatever works for you. I like whatever doesn't hurt my tricep tendonitis. Usually pressdowns and CG bench.

    I find CG bench, weighted dips and either skull crushes or OH tri extensions to be the best. Probably skull crushers if i had to choose though.

    i train high volume, i make gains, i dont use steroids, i will be big in a year or two. Your club must be doing something else wrong not the training.

    I never claimed that training programs based on supercompensation couldn't result in gains (primarily for newbies), merely that you will plateau long before you normally would with a proper training regiment.

    And how do the majority of these bodybuilders get so big off such a crappy stimulus? Rather than finding a better stimulus, they simply make their body more receptive to the bad one.

    Unless you have fantastic genetics or "big" equals around 200 lbs..it's going to take a LOT longer than a year or two.

    Progression is not linear.

    I think what he was trying to say was: If you can not grow from compound exercises then (all other things being equal) you are not likely to grow from isolation exercises. Also (again all other things being equal) compound exercises are more likely to give better results than isolation exercises. Were that not true...we'd all be doing kickbacks and cable extensions.

    Yes when you add injury into the mix..then things can change.

    Besides the exercises listed above, I'm a big fan of overhead dumbell extensions.
