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?

    Straight sets or heavy ramped sets?

    For a volume routine, someone told me that on my work sets I should be increasing the weight through the sets and that that is more effective then just straight sets at a static weight. I am trying to figure out what he meant by that. Is this the correct way of doing this?:

    For example, if I was doing 4 sets of 6-10 reps of an exercise

    Instead of this:

    Warmups, 250x10, 250x10, 250x8, 250x6

    I would do this:

    Warmups, 235x10, 250x10, 265x8, 275x6
