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?

    I'd probably call it something lame like Reverse Band Pressdowns, but I always give things boring names (partially so I'll remember what the hell I did when I look at my log 3 months later). I may give these a shot, I've gotten pretty bored with tricep work (especially when I'm running too short on time to do lockouts/board presses).
    Are those bands doubled or what?

    we do something similar. We put the bar on a low pin (like second or third pin) and then while gripping the bar with about index on the smooth, put our feet up on a box behind us positioned so our legs are fully extended.

    Keeping the elbows tucked, we go up and down (kinda like a push up I s'pose) for about 25-30 reps for about 4 sets. We rotate through all of us as fast as we can. Its a real killer. Couple of times we've seen who can go the longest and its had some very painful consequences. I would not recommend that haha

    cool exercise ben!

    Bands pushdown. It looks just like cable pushdowns, but with bands.

    You could also call 'em Hooke pushdowns (or pressdowns), in honor of Robert Hooke and his work on elasticity.

    What about the Linearly Increasing Load pushdowns, also known as LID pushdowns?

    I don't think bands provide a linear progression though, do they?

    Looks similar to the top of a straight bar muscle up.
