The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Its 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?

    Touching during floor press

    For some reason I have a real hard time touching both elbows during floor press. My right elbow always lands way earlier. Why is this? Is one side just stronger? Does this happen to everyone?

    Was happening to me. I just really focused on having both touch at the same time. Could just be one side is stronger. Maybe your grip is slightly off. Maybe one arm is a tad longer than the other.

    Likely you aren't tucking your elbows evenly. You don't notice it on bench, but you will on floor press.
