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?

    Gotta agree. This plus 1.5 grams of protein per lb of body weight and you will see those tris swell up.

    I don't think anyone mentioned:

    Floor Presses
    Board Presses
    Rack Lockouts

    Those all kill my triceps like nothing else.

    I have to totally disagree. When I put a lot of work into my triceps, it helps my other lifts (overhead presses espically). I underestimated the importance of directly working my triceps. Now that I've re-implemented direct tricep work my OHP has been going up significantly.

    I was doing standing skullcrushers, and pushdowns. I'm going to start doing even more tricep work, probably dips and maybe CGBP.

    Before you go to train everyday, think about the less fortunate and what they would give to just have the opportunity to be training like a madman.

    At the end of your workout, a couple sets of dips to failure is good.
