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?

    Board Training (where to start)

    I've been a raw bencher my whole life, and doing sets of heavy triples has really helped my stamina and weight gains, but now I need to start working on my sticking point, and from what I read here it sounds like 3 or 4 boards would be the way to start.

    My question is where to start based on where I am at? I'm doing workup sets to a max of paused triples at 310 right now, with a rep max of 330. Any advice on a routine to use that would focus on a sticking point about four to five inches off the chest (basically where the chest/lats are stopping and the transition to the triceps is taking over for me).

    Thanks for any advice guys!

    3-4 boards will be too high if you're a raw bencher. Try 1-2 boards, floor presses, more speed work and lat/upper back work. I'm trying to link you to a good article but this site won't let me until I have 10 or more posts so you'll have to copy and paste the link:

    you seem to have figured out that your tri's are the weak link, maybe you should target them. I think 3 board presses would be good to get your tri's stronger perhaps someone more knowledgeable can help more.
